Fixing the money probably won’t totally eradicate racism, it will just give most people better things to do with their time than getting caught up in the outrage that racism stirs up, even if that outrage is justified. In time, Bitcoin will make racism obsolete.
Racism easily distracts people who don’t have anything better to focus their time and energy on. Bitcoin gives people more options and opportunities and redirects people’s energy away from destructive activities and toward productive ones. Hate is noise. Bitcoin cuts through the noise and incentivizes honest trade, making racism and hatred less and less relevant.
As the world comes together to protest against Racism, Juneteenth holds a notably powerful meaning this year. It is a reminder to end injustice and oppression and stand for equality, and the entire bitcoin community stands together in support!
It has been 155 years since the emancipation proclamation yet we still see racism happening. In the past weeks, we have seen protests all across the globe demanding justice for George Floyd. Is there a way this systematic oppression of black lives can end in America? Some argue that the economics of these western worlds are designed to work against people of color and the way to end their oppressive regime is to no longer operate under there segregated systems. Using financial models such as bitcoin is one of such ways, bitcoin, and other cryptocurrencies are designed with the very idea to provide freedom and control to the people and take power away from these authoritarian regimes. Author Isaiah Jackson, in his book “Bitcoin and Black America”, argues the same point, mentioning how it can be used to fight oppressive regimes and help black-run businesses. Do you think Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can be one of the answers to fight racism and end these authoritarian and oppressive regimes that have plagued our society for so long?

''' You argue that systemic racism exists today, but give examples of things existing 50+ years ago. I agree that the psychological toll things take can remain, but I do not see any example of systemic racism existing today. Where laws are purposefully put into place to bring down blacks. In fact, I see the opposite, as I've pointed out college grants and support groups specifically for blacks and women. Which I personally think it offensive because it tells these people "you can't achieve unless we help you" Unconscious bias isn't a part of systemic racism. I also spent the last 5 years befriending almost exclusively blacks. There was a point where 100% of my friends were black families. 20+ people. All my neighbors, because my street is mostly black families. If you look at my youtube videos from a couple months ago, you see me with cornrows. Which my neighbor did for me. Partly because I wanted them and she needed financial help, so it was a fair trade there. I had my hair braided 4 times in a little over 4 months. But also because I was a part of their family and spending 2hrs in her house getting them done each month gives me a chance to see everyone that I wouldn't otherwise get to spend time with. Unfortunately that relationship ended a couple months ago, because it turned into me giving her rides places 3-6 times per day every day. To the point where I couldn't get anything of my own done and she'd get mad at me if I didn't help her. And pull the "Woe is me. No one ever helps me. No one ever cares about me" stuff. It's not my responsibility to provide for other people's families. I sat there for months helping her budget so that she could take the bus, yet she continued blowing that money on frivolous things, and getting pregnant again. The point is that I see first hand problems with blacks. Having unprotected sex because it feels good and making babies they can't afford. The women mating with drug dealers who end up in prison. Leaving their children to grow up without fathers. Some of the women nagging and being brutal to their boyfriends/kids dads, which drives them away. Then telling their kids how much of a piece of crap their father was an how bad all men are. Which I think perpetuates it in a way that makes the daughters grow up to hate men. Prioritizing buying themselves and their kids multiple pairs of Jordan sneakers over spending money on their school science projects. Prioritizing gossiping about people instead of working on their careers. etc. ''' Context Link Go1dfish undelete link unreddit undelete link Author: Anthony-AltcoinXP

Where can I find more info on Credit Builder? You can find common questions and answers by following this link: https://bit.ly/3kxd79q Why did my credit score drop? One factor of credit score is length of credit history. When you open a new credit card, it may sometimes lead to a temporary credit score decrease. Credit scores can improve in a few months with positive credit behaviors like making on-time payments. Making on-time payments is a key factor to increase your credit score over time. Credit Builder’s impact on your credit may vary, as credit scores are independently determined by credit bureaus based on a number of factors including the financial decisions you make with other financial services organizations such as activities on other credit cards and loans.

Got to meet an online friend for the first time yesterday.
So how I met this guy, 4 years ago I wasn't in a good position. Had got a back injury at my place of employment, and after diagnosis was pretty much told they didn't have work for me. Was able to file FMLA and was on workman's compensation, short term disability, and got all the state help ...well 9 months passed and that shit was all dried up, and I was still not able to work. I kept a log of every visit, each morning, and every phone conversation on another site like reddit. Now the reason I did this was for my records, and for others to know it isn't just as easy as "sue them". Well after that 9 months with meds, and costs we were broke....I mean broke. To top it off they had a guy following me gathering evidence to prove their case. It was just demoralizing to say the least. Well on that other site I said that we were worried about finances. On average 1000 people viewed each submission, and while it never got comments people did read it. Someone suggested that I make a Bitcoin wallet. So I did and the site admin said to post my wallet id....I didn't think anything of it, and mind you this site has become (now) one of the most infamous for racism and hate known on the net now, but I been there since it started. It's free speech mind you.....so because you don't like it doesn't mean they can't say what they want....... Soon as I posted the link to my wallet people began to send shit....5 bucks here 10 bucks there. And then one guy sent 15 bucks. He messaged me and asked if I got it. I did after a few and confirmed.....then he said ok wanted to be sure. I looked again a few minutes later and suddenly a half a Bitcoin was in there.....9,000 usd. I asked if he did that, and he confirmed he did. Got his number and called him crying, wife was too.....so we got to know him....very introvert too. We found out he like Xbox and we showed him ark survival.....he been playing it ever since. We just became great firends and he never wanted repayment....just someone to help is all. Yesterday I got to finally meet him. Shook his hand....showed me where he lives, and I said let's go to the range. He only ever fired a gun once.....we changed that lol. Afterwords I took him to dinner at outback steakhouse. He makes the 6th person I met in person from that site, and the 20th from here and there combined. I try to make a difference in real life with people as well as what I can do here or there. It lets you know that it's actually people you talk to. Gives you some relationship if you will......if you can I highly suggest it as you can make a difference for others when they need it. Plus.....gun range! Controlled setting with no expectations. I just let someone get used to it...know what it feels like to hold a gun and what to expect. So yeah....was a good day.
In this week’s issue of New Money, instead of talking about Bitcoin, I’ve decided to use this space to touch on love, racism, whiteness, inequality, silence, speaking out, and being an ally to black people.
