"This Moment in Nigga History"
by Reggie Dinkins, Jr.


Today we salute a inniggavator in Black Fortune. A reoccuring figure in many Black Magazines such as "Bidness Sense", "Somebody Special", and "Corner Banking". Today our business spotlight focuses on Winston "Buck" Wheatley. Known as Buck for his tremendous earning potential over the course of 3decades.

"Buck" Wheatley has many baby franchises like his 49% share of Winky Dinky Dogs, his Schlitz Vending Machines, and his patented spray-on White Walls kit. However Buck's cash cow is a ski resort in Augusta, GA. Now many people questioned this tactic, a ski resort in Georgia, Augusta of all places. His own momma, Billie Jean Wheatley was quoted "that nigga is ill, skiing in the Gus, i'd rather shuck corn in the dark".

Despite the numerous ney-sayers, Buck went on about the business of bidness. He constructing this ski resort. It was an awesome sight to behold, fabulous sha-lays, wonderful lodges, he even got a few restaurants to set up shop on the resort. There is a Port Arthur's, a Really-Dough Doughnut Shop and a Hopeland's. The resort had tremendous rolling hills perfect for skiing, but no snow, and no cold weather.

This did not stop Buck. He had a small plastic company called Glockaware. He had plenty of snowblowers which only produced water. Buck had his GlockaWare creat giant 50-foot slides and he used to the snow-blowers to create the first Black Ski Resort "Nigga Slides". Now many people thought "Nigga Slides" wasnt actually a Ski Resort but more like a water park. But Ski-Resorts are taxed less than Water-Parks, because niggas dont ski, but love to swim. His bidness sense help him keep his business' cents.

Nigga Slides is one of the best vacation spots in the South. Many people come from far and wide to go to Nigga Slides. The "Big Slide" is the main attraction, but if Dougie dont turn on the water you might wind up in traction.
