More than a trillion dollars a year flows
through the hands of Black America…
This statement has profound implications in at least two ways: but before we explore these implications, let’s make sure we understand just how much money and potential power a trillion dollars really is.
Start with a million dollars an hour, around the clock, for 24 hours. That’s 24 million dollars.
Continue at the same rate of one million an hour now for seven days. That would be 24 million a day times 7 days or one hundred and sixty eight million ($168,000,000) in one week
Continue at this same rate for 52 weeks or one year. That would be $168,000,000 times 52 weeks or eight billion, seven hundred thirty six million ($8,736,000,000.) in one year.
*Now continue at this same rate and it would take a little more than 114 years to reach one trillion dollars ($1,000,000,000,000.). Do the math!
Now remember, this is the amount of money that flows through the hands of Black America “in just one year”.
The two profound implications regarding this economic reality are:
As an oppressed people, discriminated against and exploited historically in this society, it’s unfortunate that we exist today without a creditable economic and political machine (system) fully capable of promoting and protecting our collective self interest
