“Why Should White Guys Have all of the Fun?,” by Reginald Lewis is probably the most inspiring book that I have ever read. Its the story of a Black Business man doing things in a predominately White Male dominated field, that not even white men could accomplish. He became a billionaire by simply asking himself a question most Black people never consider asking themselves. 3 yrs ago I walked into the San Francisco Punchline on a Sunday, watched the whole show, and left with one question in my head, “Why Should White Guys Have all of The Fun?” My answer was that they shouldn’t. And thats when Jabari Davis and Associates was born. The book title that started a movement!

I remember when I lost my virginity in Jr High to a white girl on the good side of town. I took three buses to her house, only to be extremely uncomfortable being outside of my comfort zone. Even though no one was home, and we were alone, I still felt as if I was committing some crime. It was then that I realized, what Bigger Thomas from “Native Son” felt like. Only difference between Bigger and myself, is I put the pillow under here head!

[Short, sweet, and a very deep reference. I was laughing so hard I made the people around me uncomfortable. I love Richard Wright.]
