I was hopeful
I’ve read Rabbi Lapin’s books and share many of his values regarding faith, family and finances. My husband and I raised children who are thriving and have sound fiscal judgement. We are starting a business in addition to holding primary jobs. Our church demonstrates and preaches excellence in the areas above. The rub is we are black. After listening to your lower class vs upper class assessment it became painfully clear of your racist slant. At one point you claimed race isn’t an indicator of class, but soon after made a sweeping judgement that the majority of blacks were lower class “had poor values”. This isn’t true and I refuse to accept this damaging rhetoric. I’m disappointed you didn’t include the industrious and ambitious black immigrants from the Caribbean and West Africa as part of the “upper class”. They arrive on our shores to take advantage of educational opportunities and create businesses. My grandfather was one of those immigrants. While I understand black people in this country are disproportionately represented in prisons and on welfare, It is also understood how egregiously biased laws, caste like social constructs and blatant violence toward someone for having brown skin can stagnate progress. And despite it all blacks are contributing mightily to this nation. I am black with high values and there are many like me.

More reviews of Rabbi Daniel Lapin
Discovered the rabbi from a ziglar podcast interview. I could listen to him read a phonebook. Luckily his program is much more informative and entertaining as he shows how the world REALLY works.
