Millions of black people are having the exact same experience: We're not getting the jobs we deserve, the salary we worked for or the job security that we desire. Additionally, we're typically the last hired, first fired and most abused on our jobs in an economic system that was not designed for us.
It's time to make a change and get off the plantation.
Many of us know what we need to do, but don't do it. We might also need a support group that can give us encouragement and advice as we seek to move ourselves to a new plain of existence. That's what this free course is all about: Quitting your job and living the life that you want instead of the one that was handed to you by your hurtful and abusive oppressors.
I love to learn. I love to teach.. I never presume that I know everything, since the key to knowledge is understanding how little you actually know. But my goal is to give information, insights and perspectives that allow you to broaden your thinking and to realize all that is possible.
My PhD is in Finance, which I obtained from The Ohio State University. My masters degrees are in Mathematics and Statistics, which I earned at The University of Kentucky. I also received BA and BS degrees with a triple major in Finance, Economics and Business Management from The University of Kentucky.
I have been on the faculty at Syracuse University since 2001. Before that, I taught classes at The University of Rochester, The Ohio State University, Indiana University and The University of Kentucky. I've been teaching at the college level since I was 22 years old, and have mostly taught classes in Mathematics, Economics, Statistics and Finance.
I am the author of the following books: "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about College," "What if George Bush were a Black Man?", "Financial Lovemaking 101: Merging Assets with Your Partner in Ways that Feel Good," and "Black American Money."
Finally, I am the founder of the Your Black World Coalition, an organization and independent media outlet with over half a million subscribers worldwide. We have played a role in confronting destructive hip-hop music, and have also led campaigns on various civil rights issues in the African American community.
