When I was growing up in Compton, California, I could care less about having a bank account, that is until a dapper banker came into my classroom when I was 9 years old and made it relevant to my life.

I remember asking this banker — who was dressed in a blue suit, a white shirt and a red tie, and just so happen to also be caucasian – "what do you do for a living, and how did you get rich, legally?"

People laugh when I say this today, but I was dead serious at 9 years old. And while I mentioned here that the banker was caucasian, he might as well have been greenas far as I was concerned (as in the color of US. currency).
