Home Ownership: Find A Way To Own And Keep It
This post addresses home-ownership not from an expert point of view but rather focusing on conventional wisdom. For many of us, it’s not easy getting into a home, and if you’re lucky enough to own one, hold on to it, as it can serve as a pathway to wealth.
Moreover, due to decades of racism and discriminatory practices resulting in vast disparities in home-ownership between Blacks and Whites in the United States, rich or wealthy Blacks should do all within their powers to help less fortunate Blacks get into a home. It means Blacks being proactive, using their buying power and individual influences [i.e., Black business tycoons, celebrities, sports figures, the affluent, etc.] to assist less fortunate Blacks in every imaginable way to acquire an affordable home.
— Remember, we can’t take our riches and wealth to the grave, and so the natural thing to do, to the furthest extent possible — is to be of service to the less fortunate. It is the end goal on earth.
