“I was made in America land of the free, home of the brave

Right up under your nose you might see a sex slave being traded

And will do anything for the money

Boy, a momma might sell her babies

Sell porn sell pills anything to pay the bills

Anything to bring that pay

Gotta scratch that itch gotta scratch them ticks

Ain’t rich but I might be

And I'mma shoot these flicks I'mma turn these tricks anything for a slight fee

Yea made in America

Momma told me that I belong here

Had to earn our stripes had to learn all rights had to fight for a home here

But I wouldn’t know a thing about that

All I know is drugs and rap

I probably could have been some kinda doctor

Instead of holding guns and crack

I was born in the mainland

Great-grandpa from a strange land

He was stripped away and given bricks to lay

I guess you could say he a slave hand

But I was made in America

So I don’t know a thing about that

All I know is uncle Sam look-in for me working on his corner so I know I gotta pay tax

Gettin’ paid in America

I was raised in America

And this is all I ever known

If I’m wrong then you better come save me America!”

Posted last night, but didn’t get any answers - Trying again.So I’ve been attending some protests lately to show my solidarity with my community. But the use of the raised fist black power sign seems a bit odd to me, being a white person.I feel like if I join others in a crowd, at the appropriate moment, in using that symbol, I am kind of hijacking, or appropriating something that is not mine.If I do not, I feel like I am making myself an outsider and not showing solidarity with a cause that I believe in.Any thoughts?BTW - Not looking to engage in discussion regarding the legitimacy of the varying sides of varying protests / events. I’m pretty comfortable with where I stand in that regard.Edit: 38M, USA.

This post is specifically for Black Owned Businesses in the New York + New Jersey Area. 

My name is Matt and I work in the office of an old school, boots to pavement, sales company. I’m not going to post the name of the company because I don’t want any sabotage from the internet leaking into my job. At the moment, I’m employed for clerical work, however, I have been awarded the opportunity for expansion into the sales staff. Salesmen make a lot more money than office employees and I have officially been given a salesman’s number. My first account was my girlfriends school and I was working on growing the business but unfortunately their charter wasn’t renewed for next year and operations have completely stopped, killing all of my business.

I have no formal sales training and I literally got this job from being a waiter at a country club. My bosses family took a liking to me and they think that I have a ton of potential and my goal is to be a top earner. I’m the only POC on the sales force right now and I’m also the only person in the building under 30.

I’m calling on the support of my community to give me a chance to sell you merchandise that you are already buying through other channels. I promise to be competitive on price and I will bend over backwards to make sure that your satisfied with the merchandise. If you are local, I can have our truck come straight to you so you don’t have to take time out of your day going to restaurant depot. 

I’m trying my best to make an honest living and I’m just coming up. 3 Years ago I was busing tables and now I have the opportunity to really make something of myself.

SO….We sell…

Food Service Supplies: (Cups, Disposables, Trays, Utensils, + anything else that a restaurant would need.) 

Janitorial Supplies: (IE Bathroom Cleaners, Floor Scrubbers, Dish Detergent, Bleach, and anything else from smell goods to disinfectants) 

Protective Wear: Gloves, Masks, Aprons, Beard Covers, Bouffant Caps, Eye Goggles, Ear Plugs ETC

Packaging Supplies: Boxes (all sizes), Void Fill, Strapping, Dunnage, Automatic Packing Machines. Etc.

If you need convincing, just give me a call. I have no training in sales but I’m a salesman at heart. If this post gets me 1 or 2 solid accounts that I can say I’m working on, I’ll consider myself successful AND it’ll help me to keep up with my bills. Just reach out to me, tell your friends, tell your family. I really need a chance.
