#43. Buying Lottery Tickets
Lots of people like to gamble every now and then, but Black People prefer to game when they know they have absolutely no chance of wining. A great example is the money-wasting scheme known as playing the lottery.
The lottery is purposefully rigged to prevent Black People from winning with any frequency. Everyone knows this, except Black People. Only accidentally are Black People allowed to win large amounts of money such as when South Carolina resident Solomon Jackson Jr, Black Person, won the $260 million dollar Powerball in August 2009.
Unfortunately, this will only fuel even more Black People to spend their hard earned money on worthless lottery tickets and will offset Mr. Jackson’s winnings ten fold. Lottery tickets and scratch & win cards have been siphoning money from the Black Community with (mostly) false hopes of hitting it big. This is yet another cruel invention designed to take money from the Black People that’s almost as bad as buying rims.
