Let me jump in on this one.

I have to disagree on the whole American dream/buy a house theory. I’m against buying homes to “build wealth,” as far as helping black people goes. I think the discussion so far has been talking about the wrong type of wealth, (i.e. monetary) which doesn’t necessarily follow from buying a home btw.

We should be trying to build political capital rather than anything fiscal. You see, people always think that money is power, but it’s just the opposite, power is money (you have to understand the linguistic properties of identity to understand that the statement I just made isn’t the same), but let me explain what I’m saying. It doesn’t matter where you live, or if you own that residence or not, what matters is how you live. Being stuck under a burdensome mortgage for 20-30+ years is not the way to go.  However, owning a solid stock portfolio is, having the mobility to get up and leave a particular political district or economy is as well. 

Just think if black people instead of putting 30 to sometimes 60/80% of their income into buying a house were to invest that money into something that helps us all. Like black businesses, black banks…Africa!

Of course there are exceptions, but buying a home is so secondary.

Basketball is a terrible sport in comparison to football, which is the one true college sport, especially with all of the high school talent's going to the NBA.

USC will be upset this year. The question is whether they will make the championship game in spite of this loss. I think the Big 10 is due to put a good team out there. If a team can dominate the ACC, it will make the championship game too.

that's just it. dominating the ACC is pretty much impossible now. especially with all recruiting that's going on. most of the teams are just going to cancel each other out.
