This is why I stress group economics.
We make everyone wealthy except for ourselves.
i’m gonna need you to calm your ankh down though bruh, because it’s not like black people in america are NOT starting their own businesses. many black people are self starters and innovators, whether you or society chooses to recognize them or not. there also is a historical struggle for black business owners to retain customers and credibility because of racism. people assume (black people included because of internalizing) that a black business is cheap, unworthy or not official compared to their competitors and they use their buying power elsewhere. that’s something you really should consider before blaming the structural poverty of black people on the fact that not enough of us are becoming business owners. *sucks teeth*
Y’all missing the point.
The post didn’t say start your own business or die.
It provides perspective on our purchase power. If we used more financial discipline and supported more black businesses we could build up our communities so that we don’t have to beg other groups for jobs.
WHY WOULD YOU RESORT TO NAME CALLING AND BASHING A POST ABOUT UPLIFTING OUR COMMUNITIES AND CREATING MORE JOB OPPORTUNITIES???
Let’s go there….
because this person is a fuckwit. If this information were reversed, if a Chinese American Council called a meeting to wit these numbers were presented, how long do you think they’d take before developing and enacting a business plan to address a serious issue of money outflow? Days? Weeks? Months? Years?
This information has been presented to Black people, politicians, community leaders, business leaders and they plan to act on that info next neveruary. Niggas talkin about they wanna be free, but don’t wanna control their own money. FOH withcha bullshit mayne.
Dr. Claude Anderson “Powernomics” been around since 2001, niggas act like they never heard of it.
