Code Black: Money and Power



Money and Power
“A race which cannot save its earnings can never rise in scale of civilization.”

~Frederick Douglass, in North American Review, 1884


“The issue is no longer, can you check into the hotel? It’s whether you’ve got the money to check out. The issue is no longer whether you can go to the University of Mississippi, but whether you can pay the tuition.  The issue is no longer whether you sit on the bus or whether you can drive it; it’s whether you can develop the capital to own the bus company.”

~William Gray, in Life, 1989
