It’s not that I don’t think we aren’t investing, it’s the fact that investing is not promoted in the African American community. Besides idols such as Daymond Jon from Shark Tank and Debra L. Lee, owner of B.E.T., there aren’t many black women (or people for that matter) that I know who are stock investors. Though to my surprise, there are a lot of black women who are real estate investors, why not stocks? Is it because it is a male-dominated community? Or perhaps we have been portrayed as the black single mother who only works from job to job?
Nonetheless, stock investing is taught because it is the choice of the individual. Regardless of your race or gender, stock investing is for everyone! Though this game is tough, it takes great knowledge and patience. All of the stock investors I know are wonderful people who are always willing to share great lessons from their mistakes.
