As we all go through the frustration and anger associated with the news each night, one more black killed, or falsely arrested, or stereotyped for DWB, SWB, or quite honestly just being black in America. Each night it is a recurring theme. One more night of watching CNN, or listening to one Black expert, or purported leader again telling us about mobilizing, or marching, meanwhile our Black Businesses are dying too. Why aren't the same people who are screaming about the injustices also screaming abut the death of multiple black businesses each week? Black Lives Matter....But Black Businesses Matter too. The only way we can yield the type of power it is going to take to change what is happening in our communities is through political and economic mobilization. We burn down our neighborhoods and we shut down traffic for a few days but then things are back to normal. Don't get me wrong the out cry is justified, we want to be heard and taking those actions are often the quickest way to get attention and to be heard. But to really make the type of change that we need in our communities is to first support each other . To build our neighborhoods. Where we hire our police officers, where we elect our school board, where we determine how justice is administered in our community.
I am all for marching and I believe that we should mobilize in that way. But I started this business over 8 years ago and the sad statistics still exist. The question still begs... WHY DONT BLACKS SUPPORT BLACK BUSINESS??? We spend over $1.2 Trillion each year and less than 5% of that goes to black owned businesses. As we struggle watching the news about another black shot and profiled and all the horrible things that happen every day. Another black owned business is shut down. 98% of our business are Sole Proprietorships, and they are closing daily. Those are the jobs that people survive on to put food on the table and we walk by them each day to go to Walmart, or Best Buy, or the Wholefood, or grocery stores with the big names. Black Lives Matter.... But Black Businesses Matter too!!!!
Often time’s people don't support Black Businesses because they are too hard to find. We have black Grocers, and Cloth designers, Black doctors, and lawyers, and book stores, and Wine Makers, and Electricians, and Mechanics, and Bakers, and Restaurants, and all the things that we buy and use each day. Just think what would happen to unemployment and the elimination of Poverty, and bad schools if we supported those businesses. Imagine the thriving communities, and the political and financial impact we would have if we showed that our business owners are strong, that our communities are strong.
