Brew Money: I Got $5 On It....

Every time I turn on the television or open up a newspaper, I have to read about the jacked up plight of black women. The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported on a study which found that the median income for single black women is...drum roll..$5! That's right...*singing* "five...five dollar...five dollar footlong"! Opps, scratch that footlong part because I almost forget, aside from being broke, we apparently don't have menzes either!

among the most startling revelations in the wealth data is that while single white women in the prime of their working years (ages 36 to 49) have a median wealth of $42,600 (still only 61 percent of their single white male counterparts), the median wealth for single black women is only $5

Researchers are calling the findings shocking. Discuss...

Wow and to think I just had a $5 foot long for dinner too. That's bad, but it's not the worst thing that I heard about black women today. Supposedly, according to the CDC a jaw-dropping 48 percent of black women in the United States between the ages of 14 and 49 have the virus which causes genital herpes.

Now that's fucked up!!!

Why is our median wealth so low? $5? Not even $500, or $5,000?

Yes, Reggie, I read that herpes report yesterday. All the more reason for me to keep the shop locked.
