First and foremost, I would like to start this post off by saying, “Yes…the fuck…it is.” I love Money so much that I am quick to defend it’s honor. How dare you live in this society and have the audacity to blaspheme the all mighty Dollar.
Has it not provided you with all you have? Has it not given you shelter? Has it not put clothes on your back? Has it not fed you and your children? Has it not allowed you to ball out and stunt on these haters? Then why have you forsaken your Provider?
People love Money until they realize they have to work hard to get a lot of it. Then suddenly “Money is evil” or “Money can’t buy happiness.” There is this stigma that the rich people are a group of evil motherfuckers that stepped on the backs of poor people to build their wealth or that they are bunch of spoiled brats who were born with a silver spoon in their mouths.
Let’s clear this up. Most millionaires in America are not only 1st generation, but they are also self-made. You know what that means? They started off just as poor as everyone else, because their parents were also poor and no one gave them shit. It’s almost as if people forget that the American dream is to get rich and live a lavish life.
How can you hate on a group of people just because they are doing something you wish you could do? No one gets mad at Will Smith because he acts too good. No one gets mad at Lebron James because he plays too well. No one hates Beyoncé for being able to sing her ass off. So why get mad at someone who excels at making money outside of the entertainment field?
A lot of this hate comes from the billionaires (Rockerfellers, Kennedys, Winfreys) and how they became billionaires. Most of them inherited their billions from family members who capitalized on the slave trade, Holocaust and every war in history. These aren’t the people I refer to when I say “rich.” These people are beyond that. Once you make it to the billionaire club, you are now a god. I’m not discussing gods in this posts; only men.
I’m not saying that all rich people are all honest and upstanding citizens, but the same goes for the average person working at McDonald’s. You don’t hate on fast food workers that get free food every day. You hate the rich, because you are jealous and you know you’ll never be one of them. Which is crazy, because most people don’t attempt to obtain riches. You want what they have, but don’t want to put in the work they had to put in. All I can say is, you can’t value money and not actively seek it.
