As I have been reading the book: African Friends and Money Matters by David Maranz, it has become very clear to me that African and Western economic systems are very different from each other. There are unwritten rules that Africans unconsciously follow in their behaviors related to the use of money and other resources.
One of the biggest differences that I have noticed is in the area of giving, borrowing, and loaning of money and material goods. It involves solidarity, generosity, and acceptance by society it means mutual economic and social support, hospitablness, putting group entries ahead of individual entries to the extent of showing a definite bias against individuality, and active participation in society. These are the highest values in African cultures, essential to each person. Totally different from the western ideal of individuality and independence over interdependence with an over develop sense of individual ownership. Because of this, much of how money works has been kept from our people of the diaspora on the western side. As a result, we are behind a tremendous head start in the money game. Most of OUR people on this side of the diaspora have been indoctrinated into a “crabs in a bucket” mentality causing those who do acquire such knowledge to keep to themselves or only discuss amongst their white colleagues. As a result, I myself am just beginning to understand some of the ways in which REAL wealth is acquired and accumulated.
My experience here in America as a result of being behind in the “money game” due to systematic racism:
Black families earn $26,000 less than white families
Black schools receive $23 Billion less than white schools
Black neighborhoods have 23% less value
Black women die 3x more often in childbirth due to quality of healthcare available
Black people are killed by the police 3x more often than whites *
It’s the little things like how to set up your W-2 income get an instant pay raise of $300-$600 without having to ask for your bosses consent, how credit actually works and how to restore and build it up. Most of all, I am learning how to grow my money and the best part is that I don’t have to wait on my own learning curve because I have access to professionals in this financial arena right at my fingertips.
