Killer Mike Raises $3 Million For His Greenwood Digital Bank
This Is How You Use Power
Killer Mike has evolved into much more than a entertainer. His voice is used to rock a microphone in a new way. Killer Mike who's real name is Michael Render is now using his influence to get citizens smart about banking.
Teaming up with a civil rights leader Andrew Young and media exec Ryan Glover has produced the Greenwood Digital Bank. The mission of the bank is targeted at the Black and Brown communities in a effort to build money management skills. Having a bank account puts you in the position to get a loan for business and home ownership.
“Today, a dollar circulates for 20 days in the White community but only six hours in the Black community,” Render said. “Moreover, a Black person is twice as likely as a White person to be denied a mortgage. This lack of fairness in the financial system is why we created Greenwood.”
