Do they know that building cultural riches and wealth has more to do with giving than it does with owning the biggest bank account? And did they know that owning the biggest bank account has more to do with greed and control than an adequate means of living? And did they know, in comparison to our cultural peers [i.e., whites, Latinos, Hispanics, Asians, etc.], that we are way behind the power curve as it pertains to building cultural riches and wealth? Finally, I’m curious if they want to know why.
Well, perhaps it’s because we’re too busy overindulging in consumerism and getting immersed in institutional advisories that mitigate and grossly harm the progress of cultural wealth. Likewise, being over-focused on building personal bank accounts rather than building collective riches and wealth also tends to hurt the progression of cultural wealth overall. As a result, a revolving door of poor economic conditions, poor education, and lack of viable social welfare programs continues to afflict us.
All things considered, we can build cultural riches and cultural wealth by giving and teaching in exceptionally smart ways.
