“The question begs how will the economic winds take back the keys to life which consumer credit has afforded a generation. It will be done quickly and without regard for feelings, or consideration for struggle.” Rise of Legacy @tonetalks HuffPost 2013 huffpost.com/entry/the-era-…

I don’t think people much cared about this #investfest. It came and went. Not sure if it’s even worth a show gauging the interest. Boy didn’t they try to push this craze? They took all the old #decadentveil Black celebrities from 2000 they could find to try to sell these $300 tickets on the financial golden brick road to nowhere. 🤫😆 Black folks generally could care less is the after message. 🤫🤷🏿♂️👀🇺🇸🙋🏿♂️
In my view the #investfest was a conference for young Boomers of 1987 working jobs with pensions and buying $75k homes. Sold off to millennials in 2023 working gig jobs and living the consequences of believing in Nixonian Black economics as uplift for 40 years too long. A conference created by people who don’t really understand race or wealth in America. 🙋🏿♂️🤫 @JTPocketWatcher @CommonSenseEli in my view the money is in selling classes to the aspirational not investing in assets. Tell them give it away for near free if it isn’t. And make money when the participant does. 🤷🏿♂️

The fact that #Uber launched 1 month after @BarackObama was sworn into office. And that #jayz & @Beyonce among others were invited to invest early so they could be used to normalize it to Black folks and others are the cost of praising the #decadentveil. vidrise.com/v/ojmh1/
Just awful. But someone beyond POOR will read this and praise it through a view of their own super capitalist potential. 🤷🏿♂️ The #decadentveil has done their job. “Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Ashton Kutcher and more reportedly set to make a killing as Uber goes public” nme.com/news/beyonce-a…

No group in Black politics suffered more under the points made against the Biden administration in federal court today regarding social media than #ados. The retracted Harvard #ados paper was also created by authors paid by democratic donor org Move On. In review of the #ados… https://t.co/rPjPy3dEoStwitter.com/i/web/status/1…
Tune in tomorrow 5/10/23 show releases on @YouTube at 830am pst @tonetalks Youtube. "Will Artificial Intelligence AI & Robots take all the jobs in America?"
Here is a preview section from the show where I give a scathing review of #AB3121… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
Newsom is basically saying he is opposed to reparations. The #ab3121 panel was a waste of time & the recommendations don’t even make sense. They can stop no need for 2024. “Gov. Gavin Newsom Will Not Support Cash Reparations But ‘Supports Recommendations’” californiaglobe.com/articles/gov-g…

As I told you back in March this California #ab3121 reparations recommendation would not make sense when released. Now it’s up to $1.2 million for someone 71 years old. Thus randomly breaking this down by age. This elementary calculation isn’t proper form for lineal reparations.… twitter.com/i/web/status/1…
This was how #ab3121 came to be a bill.
None of what is recommended addresses a wealth chasm between #ados Blacks and whites. You don’t need small scale pilot programs. You need a massive reparative justice program that 1) is for American Descendants of Slavery 2) recognizes the trillions that need to be repaid.
These ideas are detached from the economic collapse in #ados Black America. Only 21% of Black Americans even have above a 700 FICO. What do you think that it is for working age #ados taking out boomers and Black immigrants 5-10% break 700? Really POC commercial property programs.

This is why #ados is vital. This woman discusses East African racism practiced in America while dating. She says “We’re treating people as less than people.” Many Black Americans don't grasp this conceptually bc we don't think in this context. #ADOS is not divisive its necessary.
Our lives as #ados are filled up with so much acceptance that we don’t understand that without exclusion there are no boundaries. We are not flat Black. We are American Descendants of Slavery. Joinados.com

Like I have said life is now more about wealth transfers than labor. Making the cost of being #ados heavy beyond measure. “Gen Z and young millennials have found a new way to afford luxury handbags and watches—living with mom and dad, says Morgan Stanley” finance.yahoo.com/news/gen-z-you…

1) Interesting thread it shows a severe lack of understanding of the moment. While the tweet framed it around “work” it’s much deeper. Our generation will not have the wealth to promise more than we had and almost no one tweeting replies seemed to get this basic economic truth. twitter.com/i/web/status/1…2) Many were subtweeting w/ no grasp on the shift in wealth we are living through. And also understanding the way cars have shifted both in cost and who manufacturers target. Economy cars are dying. People are in the thread totally void of understanding economics in America.

What you’re seeing is people expose DEEP limitations. From Nore for reasons @BreakingBrown posted on “Special Ed”, to the people commenting. This is a failure bc Nore has now made himself the story. This is never suppose to happen. The journalist is now the STORY for apologizing?
Many people are showing the effects of watching gossip reality TV & daytime judge shows for years. Nore broke a cardinal rule & made himself the story. To the point we’re not discussing the context of Kanye. This is a low brow model of busy work content digestion. Zero focus.

In this era young white men are often afforded a space to fail up by older white men that control most of the wealth in America. They see former versions of themselves. And hand out advantage to keep that image for society. The con of our moment is to mask it w/ Black celebrity.
In addition nepotism has run wild within wealth calcification. And it drives OUR eras winners & losers. There is no group that unknowingly lives further under that boot than #ados Black men. Lives set up for failure from the day they left the womb. Yet expected to provide as men.

In 2009 @50cent was singing have a baby by me be a millionaire as a fantastical arrival to wealth for Black folks actually largely bottom casted. >>> In 2022 he’s berating his child over child support and the pain they suffered because he wasn’t a good father. 🤫🤷🏿♂️ #50cent
“I need you to maybe give me a seed. I need you to give me reason to breathe… Have a Baby by me be a Millionaire.” @50cent
The path #HurricaneIan is taking is CRAZY. From near Tampa yesterday it then slows down over land earlier. And then picks up speed back over water near Jacksonville today. — My prayers are with Florida and the Carolinas. 🙏🏿 Be safe.
This is ridiculous Madison owned over 100 slaves on a Virginia plantation. You would never see this nonsense from any group oppressed and enslaved by a person. On her Twitter @lizzo calls it a “Presidential” flute. No Lizzo it’s Madison’s. A man who held your ancestors as slaves.
Just so lost… this is a relic of slavery and should have died with Madison. She gonna play this flute and give this man and his flute praise. No it’s not a PRESIDENTIAL flute. It’s James Madison’s legacy born of your ancestors bones.

The gravity of the atrocities skipped over by #womanking can't be put into words. The #BoycottWomanKing protest should be an awakening for #ados Black Americans as to the GAPS in their own identity. "The African Trade" by History is a good primer. WATCH:
The #WomanKing Dahomey traded about 3 mill of our ancestors but other countries & their progeny have been able to live on a flat blackness that Black Americans have blindly anchored. There still were 9 mill more sold up the African coast for hundreds of years. #BoycottWomanKing

1) Why isn’t @thr interviewing Maria Bello she said she found the story & also it was her brainchild. We are getting quotes from Viola on womanhood as cover. Why can’t we hear from the person who told us it was her idea & project? #BoycottWomanKing - hollywoodreporter.com/lifestyle/life…2) Bello only has 1 writing credit on IMDB. #womanking . THERE’s NOTHING before this film. Her writing career starts w/ recreating the genesis of our enslavement. Now millions of Blacks are leaving theaters arguing w/ us w/ her writing as their lineal anchor. #boycottwomanking

1) STOP reporting the #WomanKing leading the box office. It’s suppose to it’s the 1 film in 3700 theaters. #boycottwomanking
“The woman King is not proven to be profitable in any way. So overall it is coming out that the film will be a box office failure.” thefilmik.com/the-woman-king…2) They are telling Black America anything on a $19 mill wkd. As an atty that has worked in film I’ll tell you read to get a grasp on per screen avg numbers. #boycottwomanking They opened this #womanking film too wide & many of these theaters were empty. thewrap.com/everything-eve…

Time to Boycott the Woman King movie. The film is about the Dahomey & Benin that traded slaves into the transatlantic. #BoycottWomanKing — Click Here:
— This may be the most offensive film to Black Americans in 40-50 years.
#BoycottWomanKing this happened live during the show this week. 🤫🙏🏿👀 “Time to Boycott the Woman King movie. The film is about the Dahomey & Benin. #BOYCOTTWOMANKING”

1) I want to make sure everyone sees what is going on here. @breakingbrown and I discuss high level wealth news and the economic data. Then anchor the #ados lineal discussion. Go look at the recent tweets of others that chipped at our project. They don’t discuss any of it. 2) So what happens is they do not tweet on inflation. Or the FTC regulations on autos. Or really anything beyond hollering reparations with no anchoring or salacious BLACK celebrity gossip. Then you come back to our #ados project & anchor their fba or local reparation projects.
