We all forget that "African Americans" are the youngest race of people in the world right now, were only 60-300 years old depending on how you look at it. We have a long way to go, and alot to learn, but I think we're doing pretty good.
Once we all learn the importance of delayed gratification, we can dominate business, just like we do sports and entertainment. It's just going to take a few more decades for that "worker" mentality to fade into obscurity.

Deere & Company began when John Deere, born in Rutland, Vermont, USA on February 7, 1804 moved to Grand Detour, Illinois in 1836 to escape bankruptcy in Vermont. Already an established blacksmith, Deere opened a 1,378 square feet shop in Grand Detour in 1837 which allowed him to serve as a general repairman in the village, as well as a manufacturer of small tools such as pitchforks and shovels.
In other words, messed up his money and ran somewhere else to start over.
Born to a wealthy German mining engineer named Wilhelm Böing who had made a fortune developing large low-grade penuckle taconite iron ore deposits and who had a sideline as a timber merchant.
so this man received money from his family - he wasnt a self made millionaire.
Bill...I respect him but his backround; Gates was born in Seattle, Washington, to William H. Gates, Sr. and Mary Maxwell Gates, of English, German, and Scotch-Irish descent.
His family was upper middle class; his father was a prominent lawyer, his mother served on the board of directors for First Interstate BancSystem and the United Way, and her father, J. W. Maxwell, was a national bank president.
Bill had a head start over a few people and I do believe if education is a strong focus at home that you can acheive anything...
But i feel sorry for you because you didnt even read this enough to even look into a non entertainer
Quintin Primo III is worth $300 million. The minister's son grew up in Chicago. He earned his MBA at Harvard in 1979 and took a job in Citicorp's real estate lending division. Primo founded Capri Capital in 1992 with childhood friend Daryl Carter and achieved initial success extending mezzanine loans to small borrowers that larger firms neglected to serve. Today Capri's portfolio is larded with apartment complexes; the firm's a.ssets under management have swelled to $4.3 billion.
or another not not the list
With a net worth of $125 million, Kenneth Chenault, chief executive of American Express ( AXP - news - people ). Chenault attended Harvard Law and held posts as a consultant and a lawyer before joining Amex in 1981. He became the company's chief executive in 2001. The company's shares are down nearly 50% in the past 12 months as profits shrink, delinquencies rise and cardholders throttle back spending.
Near misses include former Merrill Lynch chief Stanley O'Neal and Citigroup ( C - news - people ) chairman and former Time Warner ( TWX - news - people ) head Richard Parsons. Both O'Neal and Parsons were compensated primarily with stock and options while at the helms of their respective companies; the value of their stakes in those companies has languished since the onset of the recession, shoving their fortunes below the $100 million mark.
Also not on the list: Linda Johnson-Rice, chief exec of Johnson Publishing Co. Her father, John H. Johnson (died 2005), founded the company with a $500 loan from his mother in 1942 to publish Negro Digest. Over time he added such keynote brands as Ebony and Jet magazines, Fashion Fair Cosmetics, plus television, fashion and book publishing divisions.
I know you have no idea who Keith Black is .
Here I'll give you one...

i feel sorry for your mother

You obviously learn through media and hear say. And what you call racist poison I call truth. Everyone on that list made someone else 10 times more money before they made theirs.
Come on man. You sound just like the Negros telling civil rights leaders they were starting trouble.
If a white media outlet come out saying the same s**t you will be in here talking about how black people need to do better.
Also... You had the nerve to bring up all the things that were stolen from us...... Well..... THATS MY f**kING POINT!. I never said we don't contribute. But when the money comes around(Which is what our AMERICAN society is based off of), we aren't getting our just due unless we are entertaining. And you want to talk about Mr. Quinton.... The money I have heard white folks making off real estate makes his accomplishments very laughable. WE ARE STILL BEHIND!!!!. LOSING!!! But when the white man throw us a bone we are supposed to be greatful.
And yes take a look at all this stuff that was stolen. Why aren't black people in charge of the companies that now make them??????? Goes back to the Engineering and Scientist comment I made.
But please don't feel sorry for my mother. Her son is living his life, seeing the world, headed to college, taking care of his children, and above all else doing his best to help his race get out of the slave mentality they are in. When she looks at me she see's a man that has made mistakes, and striving to be a better person. She also see's that I want more for African Americans than Oprah, Bob Johnson's sell out a.ss, and the rest of these coons out here dancing for the white man. None of it helps US as a people. Just look at Marcy Projects. Think it has recovered from all the poison put on the street b y JayZ and Company????????
But here you go BOY

Oh and one more thing.... Keith Black does head this
But he is not the owner. I guess what all of you are saying is that it is ok to work for these people and make less, but entertain these people and still make..............Less than the whites do....
There were a few black people in the "Racist" days that made a lot of money. And there are a few black people who make a lot of money today. We are progressing black people.:D:D:D:D
