There Are 11 Black Members Of The Billionaires Club, Find Out Who Is New On The List!


There is nothing easy about becoming a billionaire. You could be the winner of the largest Powerball jackpot in history, and you’d still be $412.5 million short. With over 7 billion people in the world, only 1,826 are worth 10 figures or more. An even smaller number are black billionaires. That list grew from nine to 11 over the past year. Floyd Mayweather isn’t on that list yet, but after making $700+ million over his career he’s getting close. Add in all of the work he continues to do outside of boxing, along with his friendship with Warren Buffett, he’s well on his way to hitting that number. Knowing his work ethic and drive, there’s no reason to doubt him. Forbes just released it’s list of the world’s richest people. With that information we’re bringing you the top 10 list of black billionaires, and there are a couple of familiar names on it, both new and old. Check it out…
