Real gains in the economy will come from the creation of new wealth through new industries. Job creation peaks when innovations in science, technology, and engineering do. We get it wrong when we see the solution to inequality in income distribution.
People should be honored for creating the types of infrastructure and products that helps meet the needs or the masses and not be demonized when their products/services create a considerable amount of profit and wealth for themselves.
Inequality has nothing to do with a gap in income as it does with a gap in opportunity. There are particular field sectors that will never yield as much in income and profit because their economic value in the job market is relatively low. Students should be informed of this diligently prior to choosing a major and shape their academic pursuits accordingly.
SHE LOVES FASHION:

Those who are familiar with this blog know that I like learning how to be feminine, desirable, and successful by looking at other women (role models or competition, no matter the race), learning what they do that is positive, finding out what other people think of their behaviour, and then incorporating the positive and prized behaviours into my own repertoire. Well I just read an article about How to differentiate from other companies. This really made me think about the reputation and popularity of the current “Black woman model” and what we have to do to make the “New Elegant Black woman model” (EBW) stand out from the competition. Women of other races emphasize their good qualities and it’s time Black women do the same!
I think that Black women have some uniquely feminine and attractive features that we need to start using to our advantage in the dating market! There are things that some people have noticed but there is a huge market of people who have no idea of the unique feature we have to offer. Some of this will involve using spin to make some of stereotypical features seem more positive. This will only be useful to women who want to be noticed and approached by men so be warned. Here are the features we need to emphasize and add to our EBW product so that there is higher demand for us as companions..
SUCH AN UPLIFTING POST!!
Wendy Hilliard has long been a major force in women’s sports. In 1978, she became the first African American to represent the United States and remained on the Rhythmic Gymnastics National Team a record-setting nine times; serving twice as National Team Captain. A National and International Gold Medalist, Ms. Hilliard, represented the U.S. in over 15 foreign countries and three World Championships, retiring from competition in 1988.
She then became a four-time U.S. National Team Coach and her gymnast Aliane Baquerot, is a 1996 Olympian. Ms. Hilliard served as the National Spokesperson for Rhythmic Gymnastics for ten years.
Motivated by the challenges she faced as an athlete, she went on to become the Chair of the Athletes’ Council of USA Gymnastics and was the athlete representative for Men’s, Women’s and Rhythmic Gymnastics to the United States Olympic Committee. From 1988 - 2001, Wendy Hilliard served on the Executive Committee of USA Gymnastics, the final three years as the Vice President for Rhythmic Gymnastics. Cont.
“I am in full support of a sisterhood, but only as an equal partner at the table. Your loyalty must be proven and there’s an annual review to pass. There is no automatic lumping of disparate groups together just because. I am not a Negro pet begging at the table that you throw moldy crumbs to. I also hold black women accountable for not supporting each other over black male interests as well. That ship has looong sailed, however. We’d be in a much better position if we had taken care of each other FIRST.
I do not expect outsiders to care about “me”. Or even other black women as a collective since they’ve shown they don’t support themselves or each other when it comes to making a clean break from failed ideologies. So, this isn’t about trying to persuade anyone to do anything. Smart people are going to look out for #1. I don’t like the hypocrisy and BS in trying to PRETEND that you are supportive of me when you are in fact A RIVAL, but who’s actually going to come out and SAY that?!
The next step becomes YOU asking yourself why you are supporting entities that DON”T SUPPORT YOU???!!!!”
The best thing black women and girls can do to uplift their image is to become their best selves.
It's not necessary to publicly proclaim anything other than the fact that you are living well. ♥
