Jarim Person-Lynn, Author, Brass Knuckle Finance

Jarim Person-Lynn, a Wealth Coach in the Los Angeles area, knows all too well how the trappings of debt and poverty can derail the dreams of the inner city youth. Growing up submerged in the flossy and flashy L.A. culture through the late 90s/early 2000s and taught to buy first then think about how to pay for it later, he found himself ultimately working day and night to pay off someone else’s life. After a few false starts and partial escapes from old ways of thinking, Jarim got completely fed up with his situation in 2009 and vowed to eliminate the “Keeping up with the Joneses” status quo that had tried to claim him and so many of his friends both financially and emotionally.
Beginning with free one-on-one financial consultations with thousands of minorities in L.A., he would go on to put together a 5 course guide filled with everything he had learned working with and getting so many minorities out of debt. Now with a clothing line that supports his signature message of “Buy Less, Live More. Screw the Joneses” along with the introduction of free weekly financial classes in community centers in and around Los Angeles, the only thing standing in his way is the very mentality of every person he is attempting to save. This time, however, its war.
Synopsis of the book:  Brass Knuckle Finance

“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. It’s high time that we as a people got fed up. Ballerific, no regard for your future, throw your money away mentalities have been encouraged and allowed to prosper for far too long in our community. We have well known minority leaders in politics, health & fitness, religion, entertainment and everything else under the sun but when it comes to finance, we’re basically lost in the sauce. Sure there are those like Dave Ramsey and Suze Orman who have been trying to include our community in their approach for years but their messages have pretty much gone on deaf ears since day one. Well today, it’s time to step it up a notch.

Brass Knuckle Finance, written by Jarim Person-Lynn, consists of the following 5 course program that promises to not only change the way you view money but change the way you view yourself:
Course 1: You are a Slave, Neo (how your mentality environment and health affect your wealth) 
Course 2: The True art of Budgeting & Spending  
Course 3: Getting out of Debt & Staying out of Debt 
Course 4: College, Entrepreneurship & Income 
Course 5: Investing & Eliminating the Cycle of Poverty 
Please don’t think that this is going to be a walk in the park though. Should you follow each one of the courses here exactly how they are outlined, while at the same time practicing great discipline in order to change your life, you will become wealthy. The only question is “how soon?”
Jarim’s financial autobiography:

The Autobiography of J.P. Lynn (aka ManAgainstDebt)

Ok, I’ll try and keep this as short and sweet as possible. For those that dont, sit back and grab a drink or something. lol At any rate, like many of you, mine starts in college.

I acted a damn fool in college and a Cal State was a f*cking joke to me.

The year was 1998 and from the first time I set foot on campus, I knew my plans had nothing to do with graduating. I was there to do something else. I wasnt sure what yet, but I knew it involved making lots and lots of money. This was perfect. I figured I could do this and at the same time have my loans & Read the rest of J.P. Lynn’s financial autobiography HERE

Atty. Michelle Alexander: Michelle Alexander at Riverside: New Jim Crow convict under-caste

Legal scholar Michelle Alexander argues persuasively we have not ended racial caste in America; we have merely redesigned it. Jim Crow and legal racial segregation has been replaced by mass incarceration as a system of social control. —More African Americans are under correctional control today than were enslaved in 1850— Alexander reviews American racistl history from the colonies to the Clinton administration, delineating its deliberate transformation into the war on drugs. She provides analysis of the effect of this mass incarceration upon former inmates who will be discriminated against, legally, for the rest of their lives, denied employment, housing, education, and public benefits. Most provocatively, she reveals how both the move toward colorblindness and affirmative action may blur our vision of injustice. She spoke at Riverside Church in Manhattan May 21, 2011.

Michelle Alexander is a longtime civil rights advocate and litigator. She won a 2005 Soros Justice Fellowship and now holds a joint appointment at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity and the Mortiz College of Law at Ohio State University. Alexander served for several years as director of the Racial Justice Project at the ACLU of Northern California, and subsequently directed the Civil Rights Clinics at Stanford Law School, where she was an associate professor. Alexander is a former law clerk for Justice Harry Blackmun on the U.S. Supreme Court, and has appeared as a commentator on CNN, MSNBC, and NPR. The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness is her first book. Audio: Riverside Church, Camera: Joe Friendly
