I remember my family would play numbers in the 80’. My grandma told me the mob would try to shake down the winners, if they won big. That dream book was the real deal!!!!!
the old practice continues🤔
Only black people justify crime as a way of getting out of their circumstances…
The same as lottery.
I remember these days🎉
Who was she hurting? nobody! Better than flooding her community with drugs. Respect for this OG!
The numbers mason.
This girl is straight up a gangsta
No not everything needs to be a movie calm down
lmaoTHE DAUGHTER IS A SNITCHSHAME ON BLACKSwhite people hv license
My mom ran a hundred miles
Running numbers was created by a blk man. Now the goverment took over and call it lottery and make it illegal to gamble so they can make money off of us lmao.
Mom made it happen! She eats, you eat! Good times back then!
The irony of using the bible to gamble
She must be some kin to TI some stories you just keep to yourself even though her mother is deceased they could go after her ppl she dealt with
Am I the only one who doesn't understand how her mom made money if she paid them if they won through her money🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
We had these in NYC too I remember my friends mom taking us and having to wait in the car till she came out
This is illegal? 😂 Well….
Blacks go figure always ripping someone off 😆
I got a casino ad before this video

Who really cares? Why is this even news?
I knew about the numbers since good old fallout days
A new snitch nine she just told on her own mom
help me start 😭
Heard this story beginning of the year on the popular podcast 'Criminal'. For people that like listening to interesting stories like this. Give that podcast a shot
What an interesting life story she has to tell! I can't wait for the movie version (I always wait to read the book after I see the movie so that neither disappoints)!
The numbers what do they mean? Mason!!!
She a snitch
So your confessing to knowing of a crime and not reporting and you snitching 😆
Respect to that beautiful black queen
Remember that episode of Everybody Hates Chris where he was gambling 😆
This was a one of the reasons that black communities were thriving in the 70s.Government bought out those bookeeps and now we have the state lottery. Black folks should go back to this.
Im still confused on what shes doing. Why would people go through her to buy lotto, instead of going out and doing it themselves. Was she splitting winnings amongst everyone who bought tickets through her, and keeping some for herself?
that's fuxking badass.
The music is louder than her voice
This was normal for me too, I'm from Detroit also. And my grandfather house was like this. Old men were always there playing their numbers and the number man. Im glad the black community had something that would benefit them.
I wish it was a movie and the police broke in to her house and arrest her and the daughter broke her out
These is a Hispanic thing
I bet she was hella rich
Woman: I had an illegal lotteryHollywood: I'm listening….
Who gives a darn now. All she wants to sell a book.
That’s the longest inside Edition episode ever
I don't see the issue in this she made her money didn't hurt anyone .. MUSL runs it and it's all good? Who said it was okay?
Im to sleepy to understand this rn..
Pick up the book: The World According to Fannie Davis- My Mother's Life In The Detroit Numbers by Bridgett M. Davis
Rest in peace Queen! Wow I wish they made more women like you making money to support your family the best way you know how not hurting anybody still being a lady in a good person everyday. Much respect to you and your family rest in peace
Where I live there is a man who does veterinary stuff out of his house. He does full blown surgeries to your dog for hella cheap. He was a vet in another country. Everyone here is hush hush about it. We take our dogs their also. He’s been running it for many years. I’m in shock he hasn’t been caught. Glad he has not been caught yet lol. I benefit from this
This is very common in the Asian Community! 🤫
This would be such a good show or movie on Netflix
This sounds like an interesting story…not! 😂
She's vibing tho
Someone trying to explain that illegal gambling is good for the economy is laughable
This is not a lie it's the very truth👉 Lisa Guerrero would confront the winning number 😂
She was a godmother 👍
I learned about this through a podcast. There another woman that was in NY that was even more brazen than her mother but they’re not doing a show on her—instead their doing it on her henchman Bumpy what’s his face 😒😒😒😒
LMFAO…..sounds like my mother-in-law !!!! 😀 damn !
Your mom probably paid off more than the legal lottery which in my opinion is the true scam on the working class.
I’m from miami Florida and my daddy use play numbers at the number house overtown… we had number houses everything where shout out to DADE COUNTY
I really thought this said Underwear lottery business.
It's been a long day.
Omg fish 682 🤦🏼♂️🤦🏼♂️😂😂😂 wtf was that lol
Haitian still do that today🙄 and it's work's
Very interesting..they should make a movie about her life.
So NAACP's is corrupt from the start. Interesting.
Another example of how regulations limit entrepreneurship in the black community.
0:35 Now its not a secret anymore 🤣
Black people have always had a hustle! May not have been legal, but it kept the money in the community
It is not a secret anymore though🤣
I want the book
BLACK NUMBER QUEEN 💯💗😊
Oh many asians would play this too!
Her mom was beautiful back then 💯✊🏾
She gotta have a pistol on her hip just Incase someone tried to pull a funny one 🤣

This needs to be made into a movie stat
The title is kinda like a David D volg not gonna lie
