    Blacc Sam Speaks on The $100K "NIPSEY HUSSLE BUSINESS GRANT" Pitch Competition: "He Would Love This"

    In this inspiring clip of Market Mondays, we have the honor of hosting Blacc Sam, brother of the legendary Nipsey Hussle, alongside our hosts Troy Millings, Rashad Bilal, and Ian Dunlap. Rashad kicks off the conversation by reminiscing about the solid relationship and brotherhood they've built over the past two years. A trip down memory lane brings up fond memories of sharing meals at Ethiopian restaurants and learning old-school principles that are deeply ingrained in Nipsey's family and team.

    In a special announcement, Rashad reveals the exciting news about Marathon Clothing's participation in this year's Invest Fest. But the most impactful highlight is the introduction of the $100,000 Nipsey Hussle Business Grant Pitch Competition. Designed to uplift and support budding entrepreneurs, this grant embodies Nipsey's vision of empowering the next generation. With the support of Microsoft and the Marathon team, the pitch competition promises to be a life-changing opportunity for a deserving entrepreneur.

    Rashad outlines the steps for participation: Invest Fest ticket holders are required to create an Instagram video explaining their business and how the $100,000 grant would help them. The video must be tagged with Invest Festival, Marathon Clothing, and Earn Your Leisure. A form on the Invest Fest website must also be completed. From the pool of participants, 100 will be preselected via social media, with an additional 50 walk-ins accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Blacc Sam reflects on Nipsey's legacy and how this grant represents his unwavering support for young entrepreneurs. He recalls stories of Nipsey’s dedication to helping others, emphasizing the "marathon mentality" of perseverance and dedication.

    Troy and Ian join the conversation, discussing the qualities they look for in an entrepreneur: consistency, hard work, and resilience. They highlight old-school principles such as reinvestment, continuous learning, and accountability as keys to success.

    The conversation also touches on the evolution of Marathon stores and the Neighborhood Nip Foundation, shedding light on upcoming projects and grand openings that honor Nipsey's vision and legacy. The foundation’s goal is to continue offering opportunities and support to the community, particularly in Crenshaw and Slauson, where it all started.

    This episode not only offers valuable insights on the grant competition but serves as a testament to Nipsey Hussle's enduring influence. It’s a call to action for all aspiring entrepreneurs to seize this opportunity and carry forward a legacy of excellence.

    Would police brutality drop drastically if every officer had to be licensed and insured?

    Would police brutality drop drastically if every officer had to be licensed and insured?

    In this thought-provoking clip of Market Mondays, hosts Rashad Bilal and Troy Millings are joined by special guest William Wagstaff to tackle an issue that often gets overlooked in discussions of police reform – the financial impact of police misconduct. They delve into how police brutality and misconduct aren't just social justice issues but significant financial burdens on taxpayers.

    Rashad Bilal opens the discussion by drawing a parallel between police accountability and professional insurance policies, like errors and omissions insurance held by financial advisors, and medical malpractice insurance for doctors. He suggests that individual police officers should similarly be required to have insurance policies that can cover the damages resulting from their misconduct, thereby removing the financial burden from taxpayers.

    William Wagstaff explains the current system where municipal budgets often have line items earmarked for settlements arising from police misconduct. He emphasizes that funds used to pay for these settlements come from taxpayers and could otherwise be directed towards essential community services like senior programs, youth initiatives, parks, and mental health services.

    They highlight shocking statistics, such as 63% of local taxes typically going to school districts while the majority of people remain unaware of who sits on their local school boards. This lack of transparency extends to policing budgets, where significant taxpayer money is spent without public scrutiny or accountability.

    Wagstaff argues for creating a financial disincentive for police misconduct by advocating for mandatory insurance policies for police officers. This can lead to savings for municipal governments, better quality policing, and the redirection of funds towards community needs. Using examples like New York City, where millions are spent on police misconduct settlements without resulting in systemic change, he makes a compelling case for financial reform to drive better policing practices.

    Troy Millings and William Wagstaff then discuss the powerful influence of police unions such as the Police Benevolent Association (PBA), which often stand in solidarity whenever incidents occur, making systemic change difficult. To counter this, Wagstaff suggests improving transparency in policing and community relationships. He calls for local elections to become tools for accountability, where mayors and town supervisors hold the police accountable, and financial expenditures on policing are made public.

    Wagstaff also emphasizes the importance of recruiting police officers from the communities they serve. He recounts cases like the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, where the judge's bias was apparent. This, he argues, would be less likely if community members served as law enforcement officers, as they would view their interactions through a more empathetic lens.

    Combating the historical trauma between communities of color and the police, Wagstaff likens the relationship-building process to that of someone dating a partner with past traumas. He underscores the importance of understanding and patience in repairing these relationships and the need for police officers to act not just out of self-interest but genuine care for the communities they serve.

    In closing, Wagstaff proposes treating policing as a profession that requires high qualifications, education, and appropriate compensation. He argues that better-educated and qualified officers would improve the quality of policing and community relations. This episode of Market Mondays is a must-watch for anyone interested in the intersections of finance, policy, and social justice.

    Cliff Notes: Cloud Seeding's Impact on Climate Change and Real Estate

    Cliff Notes: Cloud Seeding's Impact on Climate Change and Real Estate

    In this riveting clip of "Black Out with Ian & Rashad," our hosts dive deep into the controversial and fascinating topic of cloud seeding, its potential impact on violent weather patterns, and the consequential effects on climate change and real estate markets.

    *Episode Highlights:*

    *1. Introduction to Cloud Seeding:*
    Rashad Bilal starts the discussion by asking Ian Dunlap about cloud seeding and whether it could be responsible for the violent storms experienced recently in cities like Houston, Dallas, and Dubai. Ian explains that cloud seeding involves aircraft releasing chemicals into the atmosphere to stimulate rainfall, a practice especially prevalent in arid regions like Dubai.

    *2. Real-World Examples and Concerns:*
    Ian shares shocking real-world instances where cloud seeding has reportedly caused significant weather disturbances. From luxurious cars floating in flooded streets in Dubai to the increased frequency of storms in Texas, Ian emphasizes the unintended consequences of manipulating natural weather patterns.

    *3. Historical Context:*
    A clip is inserted to provide historical context, highlighting how cloud seeding has been utilized since the 1940s and its evolving technology. The clip elaborates on how silver iodide particles are used to enhance precipitation, revealing the scientific intentions behind these operations.

    *4. Climate Change and Its Global Effects:*
    The conversation then shifts towards broader climate change issues. Ian and Rashad agree on the evident warming of the planet, pointing out unusual weather patterns, including excessive rainfall in New York and rising sea levels that have submerged erstwhile islands in places like Puerto Rico.

    *5. Real Estate Implications:*
    Rashad delves into the real estate angle, discussing how climate change is transforming property values and desirability. He notes the gentrification of traditionally less desirable inland areas in Miami, which are now valued higher due to their safer elevation levels. Similarly, Rashad sheds light on the transformation of the favelas in Brazil and areas like Queensbridge in New York, where once-overlooked neighborhoods are now hot real estate markets because of their strategic locations.

    *6. Financial and Political Ramifications:*
    Rashad and Ian discuss how these environmental changes and weather manipulation tactics intersect with financial strategies and political decisions. They analyze how affluent individuals and entities, such as Bill Gates, are purchasing substantial tracts of land in flood-free zones, indicating a calculated response to anticipated environmental shifts. The hosts encourage listeners to observe these patterns for smarter investment decisions.

    *7. Closing Thoughts:*
    Ian concludes with a powerful reminder about the importance of understanding and respecting natural processes. He and Rashad agree that while technological advancements offer solutions, they can also create significant ripple effects, underscoring the need for cautious and informed interventions in nature.

    The 2024 Election Breakdown - Trump vs. Biden & Key Political Dynamics

    The 2024 Election Breakdown - Trump vs. Biden & Key Political Dynamics

    Welcome back to another engaging clip of Market Mondays! In this clip, hosts Ian Dunlap, Troy Millings, and Rashad Bilal dive deep into the political landscape as we approach the 2024 presidential election. Join us as we dissect the dynamics between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, and explore what it means for the undecided voters, campaign strategies, and the potential outcomes.

    As the election draws closer, the hosts discuss opinions surrounding Trump and Biden, the impact of social media on political campaigns, and the role of undecided voters. Rashad starts the conversation by questioning if anything can truly sway a voter’s decision this late in the game, pointing out the theatrics that have become a staple in modern elections. Troy adds a different perspective, hinting that undecided voters, especially the younger demographic, might still play a pivotal role.

    The discussion moves deeper into the political experience of Joe Biden versus the fame of Donald Trump, and the staggering fact that many voters are still undecided. Troy and Rashad debate the influence of controversial topics like cryptocurrency on young voters, with Troy asserting that addressing such forward-thinking issues might attract undecided voters.

    The video also touches on Joe Biden’s long-standing career in politics compared to Trump’s relatively shorter yet impactful tenure. Ian Dunlap weighs in with thought-provoking questions about the nature of political allegiance in the modern era, and the importance of financial security as a deciding factor in elections.

    Later, the team analyzes the campaign strategies, focusing on how the presidential candidates are targeting specific states and demographics. Rashad elaborates on voter suppression tactics and the prevalence of negative political ads, while Ian references the historic nature of political debates and their significance in shaping public opinion.

    The conversation heats up as the hosts scrutinize the enthusiasm behind voter bases. Troy argues that anti-Trump sentiment might propel Biden forward, but Rashad counters that enthusiasm for Biden himself appears lackluster. This leads to a broader discussion about the core issues like abortion and how they consistently influence voting patterns.

    As the episode progresses, the team debates the potential outcomes of the election, considering the influence of financial stability and the controversial actions of both candidates. Ian, Rashad, and Troy offer their predictions and analyze the possible implications for the future of American politics.

    The episode concludes with a look ahead to the election, acknowledging the uncertainty and the critical factors that will ultimately sway the vote. Whether you’re a political junkie or just trying to make sense of the upcoming election, this episode of Market Mondays provides a thorough and thought-provoking analysis of one of the most anticipated political events in recent history.
