Systemic Financial Racism Requires Greater Insights And Smart Tools To Build Black Wealth
Photo Credit Christina at Upsplash

By Kamau Austin, Publisher Scoop Publications

In June, 2022 a compelling meme circulated on Facebook alluding to the 400-year head start whites have over Blacks in the US economic system.  It was ironic in that it was being shared in a Black group on a social media platform with a leaning towards conservative "pull yourself up by your own bootstraps" types.  Even Black conservatives, like others in the society, too often regurgitate the usual ole tropes about Blacks.

This Meme On Social Media ignited negative tropes about Black people. 

For instance the following are some stereotypical tropes perpetuated by Black conservatives or financial coaches about the lack of Black financial success:
  • Blacks can't achieve financial literacy because we're trying to achieve acceptance with consumerism.
  • Blacks don't achieve wealth because we don't understand investments and buy real estate.
  • Blacks aren't knowledgeable or disciplined in terms of credit. 
These tropes, while having some truthful claims about some Blacks, puts the onus of the present inequality in wealth concentration between whites and Blacks squarely on clueless or undisciplined African Americans.  These stereotypes side step the fact Blacks, in the past and presently, are fighting systemic economic racism, marginalized business ownership, and industry isolation.

It should be obvious individuals can't beat systems by themselves so financial literacy should evolve beyond just having insights on getting a mortgage, Debt to Income (DTI) ratios, and investing in stocks and bonds.  Financial literacy for Blacks should also extend to new technical tools, political, social, and economic advocacy to gain more economic empowerment and collective wealth creation.

Timothy Griggs, a Black real estate investor and mortgage broker is extremely concerned about Blacks and other financially marginalized people getting access to wealth building knowledge and systems.  He's been inspired to help people have technical access to manage their credit and finances.

Griggs, an African American, is a pioneer among a growing number of techno-preneurs looking to harness the communication prowess of digital media and platforms to help put Blacks and wealth seekers on the road to affluence.  He has developed The Good Stewart (TGS) financial system to help those seeking more control and also to understand the ways to improve their credit score and overall wealth.

Timothy Griggs Developed The TGS financial App To Help Manage Credit

His tech innovation is a timely tool for those looking to drive insightfully on the road to financial success. But why is credit, wealth creation, and financial disparities such an important focus for entrepreneurs like Timothy Griggs?

Let's review a small synopsis of systemic racism in the past and moreover - present times that contributes to the lack of Black wealth. Let's touch on some solutions beyond the typical ones floated to develop more Black economic development...

Innovative App De-Mystifies Debt-To-Income Ratios Helping To Enhance Your Credit Scores


By Kamau Austin

Timothy Griggs, an accomplished entrepreneur in mortgages and real estate, is troubled with how debt hinders or marginalizes even his potential high income clients looking to buy real estate.  According to an Oct 2019 article Of Make It On CNBC "Real estate is still the best investment you can make today, millionaires say...".  Timothy is moved to create a tech solution to current credit and wealth creation problems.

Griggs is the Founder of The Good Steward, financial system (TGS), a mobile app that helps subscribers keep on top of their financial affairs.  He is a mortgage broker with over 20 years experience and real estate investor.  And his tech innovation is a timely tool for those looking to drive insightfully on the road to financial success.

Griggs often alludes to the fact that whether you are looking to buy your 1st home or rental properties you have to watch your debt-to-income ratio (DTI).  Of course developing a good debt-to-income ratio is essential to utilizing a viable credit score and therefore geared towards buttressing financial success for most of us in the process.

However, understanding the protocols and algorithms on credit scores and debt-to-income ratio calculations is a mystery to many people. Nevertheless, app visionary Timothy Griggs, looks to demystify and harness the protocols and algorithms that inform debt-to-income ratios, credit scores, and ultimately mortgage/loan approvals to empower you towards your financial goals.

However, before we can truly appreciate what Timothy Griggs, and his TGS app, brings to the table let's take a look at how debt can hurt or help you.

The Road To Wealth Reboots With The TGS Financial System's Mobile App

By Kamau Austin

Looking at wealth and income data in the United States illustrates obtaining prosperity in America isn't easy or for the faint of heart. To achieve financial independence and success takes careful planning for most Americans since the majority of us won't inherit wealth.

Less than 10% of Americans are millionaires. About 79% of millionaires claim they didn't obtain their wealth from an inheritance. According to the National Study Of Millionaires, the largest study of its type, only 21% of millionaires in the US received inheritances.

According to CNBC about 8.8% of all Americans are millionaires (or about 20.27 million Americans) . Since only 8.8% of Americans are millionaires this begs the question: how can the other 91.2% of Americans get on the path to wealth creation?

These certainly are sobering statistics to reflect on given the increasingly problematic nature of obtaining affluence in our country. However, entrepreneur Timothy Griggs, has developed an innovative and high-tech system to help most of us achieve financial viability and put us on the road to wealth creation in the United States.

Griggs has an extensive background of over 20 years in real estate investing and is also a mortgage broker. This positions him as an excellent resource since 90% of millionaires in the US invest their money in real estate.  Learn more in the video below...

Beyond Humanities “Tipping Point”
Photo By Salman Hossain Saif On Unsplash

By JV Howard

Let us cut to the chase and confess the obvious…we as a country are long pass the tipping point. “The Tipping” point as articulated by Malcom Gladwell defines a tipping point as the moment of critical mass, the threshold, and the boiling point.

As a reference we have certainty reached a critical mass in the number of people being killed by guns and by police officers with guns, cross incompressible thresholds in the number of children massacred by assault weapons and reached calorific boiling points with sorry a... police officers and politicians.

Politicians who rallied to stand up for Ukraine but laid down when called to protect our children. We are talking policemen who shoot when they should not (in the back, at a traffic stop, sleeping at home, with hands up, and fail to shoot when they should (standing down/ waiting while kids are murdered, when a white racist kills ten black people and walks out with hands up; if this would have been a person of any other color it would have unbelievable massacre. We are talking police officer who repeatedly violates the oath to serve and protect- a boiling point.  In the animal kingdom a lioness or female elephant will sacrifice their life to protect their young, but mankind has evolved to a pathetic threshold of protecting their blue suits/day job rather than save their children.

CONCERNED DAD CREATES APP THAT ENABLES STUDENTS TO LIVESTREAM SCHOOL SHOOTINGS TO ALERT THEIR PARENTS FASTER

Meet James A. Samuel, Jr., a father of two, and a fighter pilot turned tech innovator who has developed a cloud-based app called ANJEL Tech that enables students to alert their parents faster in the event of a school shooting. During an emergency, the app discreetly turns any smartphone into a personal body cam that sends out automatic notifications to their loved ones with live video streaming, audio, and the child’s exact GPS location.

School shootings in America occur at a horrific rate, with 27 occurring so far this year! James says that he came up with the idea to create the app to keep his own children safer in America, given the increasing threats they face in society. Now, however, he wants all children to benefit from it as well.

Here’s how it works:

With a push of a button, the discrete application allows users (students, etc.) to live stream any incident and provide real-time video and audio footage to their loved ones. The app also sends 3 different notifications (text, email, and in-app notifications) to their loved ones alerting them to the video feed. It also sends location updates every 10 seconds to their loved ones viewing their live stream, so they know precisely where their child/student is located and/or moving. As the parents view the live stream, they are also provided personalized directions to help them navigate to their children, and ANJEL Tech securely stores this audio, video, and location information in the cloud for future use and/or downloading.
