Do you guys want to hear about my last week? It was very interesting, trust me and I got stories to tell. And as a result of last week, I decided it time to make some changes in my life and direction as a result. Everything I said is real and it actually happened last week, so let’s get into the discussion. I published an article meant for the sistas about the micro-cube setup and I published some detailed research including an actual mockup that I created in the innovation lab at my crib. Here is the thing – I got other micro-cube prototypes I built that are more advanced and didn’t put them out there yet. To make a long story short, every time Ed Dunn and Dream and Hustle put out some information or action, African-American people disappear or attempt to collectively snub this web site as if I shouldn’t be creating actual solutions. This is not the first time – we can go back to the IPTV coverage, we can go back to the prepaid card business, we can go back to the self-checkout market and we can even go to the Wikipedia I created covering hundreds of hood business where African-American people did not want to participate building up the content. I do conference calls and cats don’t even show up. It’s always just one or two cats who show up but African-American people overall be talking and disappearing when the rubber meet the road. Cats even disappeared when I did the Liquiditi kiosk in downtown Atlanta – the center of downtown Atlanta in front of my old job. But the funny part is you have African-American folks coming back to Dream and Hustle and start claiming I’m not doing anything or got nothing to show for. So this time, I published the thing about the micro-cube and I talked about how this is an Asian urban opportunity and discussed the challenges and solutions. Me and my Asian crew who did research and my girl helped me out on researching and translation to understand how the business model works as it is not well-documented in English. I did this original research for the sistas I was covering here. When I published that article, well you saw the same script and I have a feeling African-American people want to try to shame me for knowing something or actually doing something. I don’t get that – I’m damn good because of the work I put in, not because how some African-American people want to feel about me. So I see it all the time, African-American people trying to make a statement with silence when they see one of their own trying to take action. What kills me the most is African-American people acting like they need to see someone else do it right before they jump in – technology sector don’t work like that – you got to be in and ahead of the curve and that’s what I keep trying to teach here but African-American people want to be stuck on stupid and think I have to be all validated by others before they notice and take attention. Hey, I’m the one that’s eating good right now and you’ll never see my technology skilled behind at a African-American job fair like the rest of you job-seeking brothas and sistas, remember that ish the next time you African-American people think I need to prove something to you. So I published the article about micro-cubes and the business model and I will be honest, me and my crew were already talking to cats over in Asia about the business model and how to improve it. I was talking it up because I want to make sure we are good when I help a sista here in America establish her micro-cube that the 3rd Strategic Institute was going to pay for to help a sista learn how to setup shop in an international market – this is what I was trying to do for the African-American sistas who in turn, snubbed me after publishing the article. After publishing the article, we got interest growing over in Hong Kong about the business model such as cloud hosting as a way to outsource the service and sell to cube shops throughout Asia. That is a big deal and an extremely big opportunity. I was answering questions about how to build the store, use the colors and the materials and also how to improve the model. So I spend the last week talking to people I don’t even know about the micro-cube model because the article was received over there. I get embarrassed sometime when my articles go international and I’m running a web site trying to talk to African-American people. Then I spoke to the firm behind the actual micro-cube I kept referencing here and they provided me with information and I talked briefly with them. Anybody on my social network connects would have noticed I had some new connects from Asia - I don’t need to lie to clowns out here. I learned a lot and discovered some techniques I can use such as using a 9V battery grid versus solar power and just swap out the battery pack. From the questioning and discussion all last week, I realize I can use a micro-controller to do everything from miniature light effects and robotic style animation to capture attention in a micro-cube and transform them into “micro-spaces” to market products and services and allow people to interact with their mobile device. Last week, I didn’t have time to blog for African-Americans who were snubbing me every time I’m publishing knowledge to share and I didn’t care. It’s like being a married man seeing a stripper that look exactly like the woman he should have married, I was dealing with people over in Asia who had an interest and genuine appreciation in what I presented. I made sure the article was now distributed as a PDF file off Dream and Hustle because I don’t want cats in Asia seeing how my own people be treating me and I getting upset at my people keep acting funky all the time. Then something else happen. I was in the grocery store and I saw this nice Korean sista who was thick like she may play volleyball, that kind of thick right there. I thought I saw her earlier in the day somewhere else and I really did. I’m in line at the grocery store and I’m behind her and I tapped her on the shoulder and she turned around and I asked her was she at that place earlier in the day. She said “no, that’s not me” and you want to know what happened next? The Korean sista said “she must been really pretty..” and it was on. I told her “yes, but I think you prettier” and the Korean sista ask me what I do and I told her and she told me what she does and told me she don’t get out and hang about which is why it wasn’t her I saw. I told her she can hang out with me and I gave her my number. The next day, she hanging with me at the poolside while I’m grilling and we drinking red wine together and she had swagger. I got another +1 on the Asian chick list, homey. Do you know when the last time I had this kind of encounter with an African-American sistas? The answer is never – I never had this kind of chance encounter with an African-American sista, ever! I also started ranting about sistas and things online about how my people don’t support or want to take action and then my other non-American girl contacted me and asked if I’m alright. I told her it was a cultural thing I’m just ranting about and she told me don’t worry and I’m a good person and then start sending a stream of selfie pics and I’m telling her how pretty she is. Then last week, I’m getting an African sista telling me that another African girl I was chasing is back in the country as I thought she left for good and she telling me we would make a good husband/wife couple trying to arrange marriage a brotha and I’m laughing because here is the backstory – the African girl trying to hook me up, I wanted her but I accidently talked to the other girl thinking it was her. Okay, you heard enough about my last week. Do you know what the moral of the story is and why I wrote this? The moral of the story is I, Ed Dunn don’t need any of you African-Americans validation and approval and can give a f*ck about your African-American validation and approval. All my life you African-Americans tried to condescend me, withhold any love or support and try to go silent or downplay one of your own damn people while pretending you supporting Black people that you see in mainstream media like Farrah Gray or whatever with your fake behinds. You African-American sistas also try to put me down plenty of times and make me feel less of myself instead of make me feel better and as a man who can handle his own. I went out there and went global and expanded my options and cats in Asia and these pretty international girls stepped up and supported me last week and I found a new chick that we clicking already doing grownup middle age stuff. The American-American community can’t make me – I’m already made and worldwide, homey. You African-Americans can’t break me, I already broke it off globally and my name is out there worldwide. At the end of the day, brothas and sistas are going to work together and get things done or brothas and sistas are going to watch other people go out and get it and African-Americans will start falling down the charts and heading towards further marginalization and demise. There is a strong possibility I will be removing this whole Black identity stuff from my life based on recent events and reflection of how my own African-American been treating me trying to downplay me. So I will be making a decision based on that and will let the world know really soon.
