Let’s be clear: The creation and development of black-owned businesses is the single most important issue in the African American community today. Holding marches, voting for the right politician and sharing a lunch counter with white people isn’t going to give us true power in a capitalist society. We’re only going to be able to get ahead by creating our own businesses and owning things, which will then create our jobs. Controlling wealth and resources will also translate into additional political power, which will then open the door to solving some of the most pressing matters that we are faced with today.

But is there a way that you can avoid getting rejected by a woman? You might have heard, or even seen many men who seem to have a knack for attracting women while others are left ordering pizza on Friday night and playing cards with their buddies.

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard, “Everything isn’t about race,” I could finally afford the house I’ve been eyeing. As a person perpetually concerned with the how race affects every aspect of our lives, I’m faced daily with opposition certain that I’m unnecessarily injecting race. The notion is absurd to me for obvious reasons, but never has the claim revealed itself as more utterly inaccurate than it has in the wake of the allegations of sexual assault made against Bill Cosby, and the subsequent filing of charges against him.

Editorial FeaturesLifestyle

While men and women are very different, one thing we have in common is that the majority of us are terrible. 90% of women are basic bitches whose lives revolve around Netflix, wine, shopping, and naps.

A couple weeks ago, my five year old niece asked me what Karma is. I told her that life is like a box. When you do something good, you put a good thing in the box. When you do something bad, you put a bad thing in the box. The same goes for neutral things. Karma is the force of the universe that deals you things from the box. So the more good things you put in the box, the more likely it is karma will deal you something good out of the box.

Why Wall Street’s ‘Eat What You Kill’ Motto Is The Only Way To Live

Editorial FeaturesLifestyle

An anonymous commenter named “Frank” wrote on an article I wrote, “Every time Altucher opens his mouth or posts commentary, he subtracts from the sum total of all human knowledge.”

Frank is absolutely right and I congratulate him for recognizing that. I do subtract from the sum total of all human knowledge when I speak. I’m not human. I hunt humans down. I then eat what I kill.

When You Want To Text Them And You Know You Shouldn’t

Editorial FeaturesLifestyle

Maybe it’s because they showed up unexpectedly in your newsfeed and you were so caught off-guard that your stomach dropped. They were tagged in a photo by someone you don’t know, someone you’ve never even heard of. You’re quickly overwhelmed when you think about the fact that they have this whole life now that you don’t know about, when such a short time ago, you knew everything about them.
