I shouldn’t be surprised, but my new Forbes piece about why Black Americans should be paid #reparations for slavery has already sparked lthe worst hate mail - calling me a “race traitor” Why are some people so opposed to doing what’s right? #BlackLivesMatter #ReparationsNow

Native Americans don't get #ADOS #Reparations. Some Native Americans owned Slaves for 100 yrs!!. So that would be like telling Jews they could only get reparations only if the Germans got it too!!!? How DISRESPECTFUL @JoeBiden!! #ADOS #Reparations NOW!

I had to learn the hard way initially, when I showed up 20 minutes late for an appointment. I didn't get a cut that day, and lost my deposit.Totally my fault, and I own that. I admit that I felt some kinda way, until I saw the operation and how the master barber ran the shop. Once I understood that I wasn't at Pokies barbershop, I have been blessed every since. Trust and believe, that I have showed up on time, or rescheduled every since. A legit business, with talented barbers.
