#DryerBuzz – Consumer Power or Wealth Robbery – Nielsen vs Pew

#DryerBuzz – It’s just my opinion. While it’s great that content and brands see African Americans and the black diaspora as primary consumers, there’s much to be said about over consumerism.

In a great Facebook debate after Nielsen released its new findings on millennials — black millennials and their consumer power — these thoughts came…

How to stop great wealth robbery | #DryerBuzz

Where am I going with this … had to get quiet for minute to wait for answers on my next steps. After a year of trauma, a friend suggested I find my sanity doing something that’s not so much of a brain drain … but could give me time to think as well as stay afloat instead of drowning.

Are we on wrong road with ride sharing | DryerBuzz

#DryerBuzz — The larger conversation about ride sharing at post time concerns the arrival of self driving versus people piloted vehicles. But we see a quieter conversation about what transportation is to marginalization. Stop right there. To understand ride sharing, one has to ride or drive. I’m doing both.

Buzzing Opinion | The Real About Black White Wealth Gap

We’re giving it all away. There are several dynamics to perception of ‪#‎wealthgap‬. First consideration to take into account — households and households’ median wealth. Blacks of certain incomes, or a considerable portion of certain age groups, mostly live alone as individuals outside of families or in splintered households — or file income taxes and answer polls as such.  On equal foundation — the gap lessens. Living separately, means spending more for same resources – mortgages/rent, groceries, utilities, etc. Additionally, investments, savings, and ownership which create wealth streams — remain…
