From @becauseofthem  The next time Terrence and Erica Murphy visit their local Starbucks, it might be to collect a rent payment. The couple just purchased a retail strip center in Asheville, NC that houses the coffee brand and Buffalo Wild Wings. - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We both came from single mom households, both paid our way through college with scholarships, made no excuses for our upbringing and we started our real estate investing careers when we were 23 & 25,” Terrence shared via Instagram. They purchased the building directly from the developer, now they have corporate backed leases in place from two large food and beverage companies. - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I graduated from Texas A&M University as not only an athlete but 3 time academic all conference and my wife graduated from University Texas at Austin. After being drafted to the NFL I was playing in the NFL and then had a career ending injury on Monday night Football where I was temporarily paralyzed. After rehab and retiring from the NFL I was forced to self educate myself and gain financial literacy on what was next for me,” Terrence told Because of Them We Can. Terrence was drafted in 2005 as a second round draft pick, overall 58th, by the Green Bay Packers as a wide receiver. He officially retired in 2007. He says his perspective shifted after reading “Who Took My Money” by Robert Kiyosaki. - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It changed my life. We started buying rental houses, then rehabbing them, then redeveloping blocks. That led to us both getting our real estate licenses. That then led to starting our own brokerage called TM5 Properties,” @terrencerealtor  said. The couple’s first investment purchase was two dilapidated duplexes. They currently have eight real estate related companies and have spent the last decade applying the lessons they’ve learned along the way. - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It’s very important for us to understand not only the American dream to own a personal home, but to also give ourselves options in life and not be stuck on the path to one income stream. We must diversify and also invest in appreciating assets and income producing assets.” - ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Read more @becauseofthem

GOOD MORNING ALL! BEFORE WE BEGIN OUR DAY... I JUST WANT TO SAY...what side of the equation of LIFE are you living on? “DEATH” (rotting foods “VOID” of any NUTRIENTS) or “LIFE” (Natural Nature Grown fruits, veggies & herbs full of NUTRIENTS, vitamins & MINERALS)? ARE YOU FEEDING YOUR CHILDREN & yourself “MURDERED DEAD ANIMAL FLESH” you have been “BRAIN WASHED” into thinking is healthy & actually considered food (for your body)? IT IS FOOD, if you’re an animal....🤣. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE FANGS, claws, short digestive system & live in the wild then why do you consume “ROAD KILL?” WHO TOLD YOU THIS IS HEALTHY & GOOD FOR THE MIND/BODY/SOUL? Please show me what “NUTRIENTS” you can get from eating “FRIED 🥓 & “DEAD CHICKEN FETUSES” (aka. 🥚 eggs 🍳) or COW FAT aka...”BUTTER/MILK N TOAST” ...cereal”, Bacon, eggs, cheese, sausage, ham, pork, Glue-ten (bread & all pastries, I. E pancakes, waffles, French toast, donuts, etc...) Fat & oil. This is the worst way to possible start off your day...N 💀 DEATH! How can your “Children” FOCUS in school after consuming such a “HEAVY” meal saturated in fats, blood, pus, mucus, chemicals, preservatives & oils = (weight gain & clogged pores=skin issues, dietary complications, inability to focus, slower learning, disease & poor health...etc)? EATING LIKE THIS DAILY ENSURES YOUR CHILD IS ALSEEP (itis) BEFORE 1st period (class has finished)...from their BODY just trying to eliminate, break down and process their meal. NOW THE SCHOOL IS GOING TO FAIL THEM because they aren’t paying “ATTENTION” or label them as “ADHD” or “AUTISTIC”...how can they? Their Energy is going to “DIGESTION”...instead of ABSORPTION OF “information” from the “School” lesson=intelligence! ALSO, please stop sending your children to the “BODEGA” to load up on “CANDY” before school. This is definitely guarantee a lack of motivation and attention during class due to the aggressive surge of sugar...WE KEEP SENDING OUR CHILDREN & OURSELVES TO SCHOOL/WORK ...HYPER-ACTIVE OR HYPO-ACTIVE...not in balance....✊🏿👸🏿👶🏿💪🏿#gnosis #breakfast #melanin #black #healthy #vegan #soul #african #africa #school #education #organic @alkaline #africanamerican #americandiet #diet #healthyliving #truth 

America is a young dumb country and it needs all kinds of help. America is a dumb puppy with big teeth that bite and hurt. And we take care of America. We hold America to our bosom we feed America, we make love to America. There wouldn't be an America if it wasn't for black people. So you have some dedicated black Americans who will die a million deaths to save America. And this is home for us. We don't know really about Africa. We talk it in a romantic sense, but America is it. And so, America is always going to be okay as long as black people don't totally lose their mind, cause we'll pick up the pieces and turn it into a new dance. ___________________ Via ...

This is the second design of mine to be deemed offensive by a passing Caucasian.

Looks like Disney's live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid will be a little like the 1997 cult classic TV film, Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella thanks to some multicultural casting. Javier Bardem is in talks to play the role of Ariel's royal father, King Triton. This comes on the heels of recent news of singer/actor Harry Styles being in talks to play Prince Eric, Ariel's love interest.

While African-Americans are 13% of the U.S. population, the community represents 25% of people with Hepatitis C (HCV) infections. HCV doesn’t always show symptoms, but years down the road, it can cause chronic liver disease, serious liver damage, and liver failure. Thankfully, HCV is testable, treatable, and curable. But only if everyone knows their status. We are committed to make National African American Hepatitis C Action Day on Thursday, July 25, a powerful call to action: Test. Treat. End HCV. #NAAHCAD  @NBLCA  #NAAHCAD2019

One day before the Fourth of July, a true Sister Act occurred for two sisters in New York. The pair gave birth in the same hospital and on the same day, which also happened to be their father’s birthday. Oh, their daughters were also delivered by the same doctor. . . Shari and Simone Cumberbatch knew their girls would be close in age, but they never thought they’d be hours apart. Both were originally projected to give birth mid-July, however Simone and her doctor planned a C-section for July 3. She selected the date because it’s her father’s birthday. What the family didn’t plan was for her sister Shari to go into labor on the same day. . . Shari’s unexpected labor actually delayed Simone’s scheduled C-section as the two shared the same doctor....continue reading on womenofrubies.com, link in bio. .

Throwback moment: This true story was based on football linebacker Brian Banks who was cleared of being accused of a rape that he never committed in 2012, courtesy of the California Innocence Project in 2013, and after his accuser confessed years later in 2011 of fabricating the rape allegation she made when they were teenagers back in high school in 2002. This reminds of what's currently going on in the United States criminal justice system, with an increasing percentage of people being wrongfully convicted for crimes they never committed. Personally, this reminds me of a man who I know name is Kevin Geary, who's like a big brother to me. This year around November 2018, Kevin Geary turned 56 years old. He's currently serving a life sentence for a murder back in 1991, which was a crime that he never committed, as he was framed and beaten by police officers, and forced to say he committed a murder that he never did. He was just an innocent man who was at the wrong place at the wrong time. Through the grace of God, I hope the truth is revealed and he's released from prison someday soon. Only God knows the truth. The moral message behind this photo is that you can never give up, no matter what your circumstances and obstacles are, just know there's a light at the end of tunnel. #brianbanks  #inspiration  #motivation  #encouragement  #neversaynever  #youneverknow  #determination  #brianbanksmovement  #africanamerican  #motivation  #nevergiveup  #inspiration  #godsplan  #godswill  #godspurpose  #godscalling  #criminaljustice  #criminaljusticesystem  #brianbanksstory  #californiainnocenceproject  #atlantafalcons  #nfl  #nationalfootballleague  #longbeachcalifornia  #longbeachca 

#goodmorning  all my #africans  and all my #africans  living in the diaspora.... ⚪ The term "African Diaspora" refers to the communities throughout the world that are descended from the historic movement of peoples from Africa, predominantly to the Americas, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, among other areas around the globe. ⚪ "Pan-Africanism" is an ideology and movement that encourages the solidarity of Africans worldwide. It is based on the belief that unity is vital to economic, social, and political progress and aims to "unify and uplift" people of African descent. ⚪ __ "'I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me."

Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else. We were on the Volta Adomi Bridge today. The first bridge ever to constructed in Ghana in the year 1955-57. Normally in the year Ghana 🇬🇭 today was called Gold Coast and the bridge was constructed by ADERN CLARK. And it was commissioned by formal late Prime Minister Dr. Kwame Nkrumah in 1957. #TourGuide  #AfricanAmerican  #PositiveVibes  #DreamBig  #SunshineTourist  @sunshinekimmi  .
