What’s Your Number?

I was speaking to a conscious black friend of mine and what she told me made me sit up a little straighter.

She told me that your social security number is really your slave number assigned to you from birth. She explained the “hidden” way the government, prospective employers and credit unions keep an eye on you…without ever seeing you in person. This is why you are denied loans even with stellar credit and when you buy a house your annual percentage rate is much higher than your white counterpart. This is also how the government keeps tabs on black-owned small businesses with no “catchy” African name in the title such as African Pride or Black Radiance. You are being monitored 24/7/365.

The 5th digit of your social security number is your “slave number.”

Example: 123-45-6789.

Blacks have predominantly even numbers: 0,2,4,6,8 and whites have predominately odd numbers: 1,3,5,7,9.

When she educated me on this, I was flabbergasted. I always knew there was a secret to how they always seemed to know who we are but I never dreamed it was this. She quickly asked,”What’s your number?” I counted my digits and, lo and behold…it was an even number! The same for my family and every black friend I asked. Of course, not all blacks have the “even number” secret but most do.

Sooooo….what’s your number?
