b&b236: What if you could create your ideal bank?
How many of us really love our bank? It feels like an entity that we have to do business with but always begrudgingly and always with a hint of how are they going to screw me over this time? In this episode we talk about this history of banking and how it got to be this way through various acts of deregulation and how we can ask our banks to do better.
Preach 14: Can you close the racial wealth divide in one generation?
In our monthly Preach episode with Dedrick Asante Muhammed we talk about what policies, Art, and media need to get put in place to close to racial wealth divide in a generation. It’s not cheap, it’s not easy, and it’s going to take a huge mental, emotional, and economic shift in thinking from private wealth to public wealth.
PREACH 13: Will the virtual economy have a racial wealth divide?
The virtual economy has been growing rapidly for the last decade and our virtual lives have only increased with covid. But as the virtual economy flourishes, who gets left behind? One click shopping with two days shipping makes it easy to ignore low wages and poor conditions. Will new opportunities widen the racial wealth divide or is there something different we can do this time? Catch us with Dedrick Asante Muhammad @bridgingtheracialwealthdivide on Friday at 2pm ET for our weekly Preach to the Choir podcast series, where we examine how art and media perpetuate the racial wealth divide. #systemicchange #blackeconomicpower #systemicracism #financialliteracy #financialfreedom

PREACH 12 Reparations - the least you can do
In this episode we talk about reparations with Dedrick Asante-Muhammad. What are reparations? Reparations have taken on a lot of different shapes, in a lot of different places. It really does get to this idea of repairing something of a social wrong and usually with an economic focus. A huge component of reparations has to be how do we redistribute those races sources to get past that inequality that we've had for centuries. It really explains racial wealth divide. We need reparations to help us get past the racial wealth divide, which isn't on the path of closing. It's real.
