The Parable of the Talents in the 21st Century

God gave Black people 500 Billion talents. He gave Hispanic people 350 Billion talents. He gave Asian people 225 Billion talents. And then, he left us alone for one year, here on earth, and then returned to see how we had used our talents. God asked the Asian people, “What have you done with your resources?” The Asians replied, “We created many businesses and purchased many franchises. We used our resources to assist our families and our Asian friends, helping them to get into business as well.” The Asians continued, Lord, we knew that, with 225 Billion talents, we could generate even more talents by pooling what we had and working together toward a common economic goal. Now, you see a key here, working together towards a common economic goal. We have doubled the amount you awarded us. We now have 550 Billion talents and, to top it all off, our restaurants are going strong. Everybody loves our food.

 

The Lord said, “Well done, my good and faithful servants. I will make you rulers over many things.” God then asked the Hispanic people what they had done with their inheritance. They gleefully replied, “Lord, you are really going to be proud of us. Upon receipt of our talent we went to work right away and formed our own bank. We have one in Florida that ranks among the largest in the land, and you know what else, the interest we are making will more than double the amount of talents you gave us.” As God nodded approvingly, the Hispanic people could not wait to continue.

 

We opened fast food shops and sidewalk stands. We sold fruit, enchiladas and tacos. We supported Hispanic doctors, lawyers, accountants and all the Hispanic businesses we could find. If a certain business did not exist in our community, we pooled our resources and started it. We have done very well, Lord, especially considering the short time we have been in this country, the good ole U.S.A. And God said, “Well done, my good and faithful servants. I will make you rulers over many things.”

 

Since God had given the most talents to his chosen people, Black people, he could not wait to hear what they had done with their 500 Billion talents. Like a doting father, he proudly asked them, “What have you done with your inheritance?” After turning their music down, in order to hear what God was saying, the Black people waved their hands in the air, like they just did not care, and shouted, “Lord, we just threw the party of the

century, and it was all good.”

“Look at those bad rides parked outside; we bought them from the German people and the Japanese people. Would you not agree, Lord that we did good deeds by helping to make them wealthy?”  God looked a bit perplexed. He asked if there was anything else the Black people wanted to report. “Oh, yeah,” they replied, “you have not heard the half of it, Lord. We are the most charitable people on earth. We spent ninety-five percent  of all you gave us with the businesses other than our own. We helped every business in our community mainly the ones that are not Black owned.” “We helped everyone. We did not discriminate and we did not player hate. One of the Black leaders spoke up, “You know how we like nice clothes, Lord. So, after the party we went out and bought all the latest  styles, with all the right labels. You know what I’m saying? We just had to have it. We could not wait. Check us out.” Now, the Lord was quite concerned about His people and their attitude regarding their talents. Continuing to probe and expecting to hear something that would make him proud, God pleaded, “Surely you have done something with your inheritance to generate more talents for yourselves.”

 

The Black people looked around at one another, and one of their leaders stepped forward to sum things up. “Lord, we have the finest clothing and cars, everything custom, and we meet in the most elaborate hotels. Our children have several pairs of the most up-to-date gym shoes. We make the badest videos, and we can throw down a mean dance with the best of them.

 

Even better than that, we have good jobs that will help us to earn back our 500 Billion talents, and then we will be able to once again help all the other inhabitants of this land.”

Sadly, God looked at His people and said, “With what you have done with your talents, you may as well have buried them in the ground. Because of your slothfulness and lack of good stewardship, I will give your future talents to those who have the most. You have gravely disappointed me by not adhering to one of my most important admonishments, to whom much is given, much is required.” “You may now live in the hell that you created for yourself.”
