Buy BlackSome people believe Black Americans need to boycott businesses because of the injustices against Black Americans. I understand and it is a good idea, but I have an alternative. I believe investment breeds opportunity and in these United States, money is power. So instead of boycotting, why not buy Black and wield that power? Here’s why.

Black Americans have over $1.1 trillion in spending power. That’s more than most nations. When Black people participate in group economics, Black businesses hire Black people. Employed Black people produce Black wealth. Black wealth promotes Black investment and Black investment means a better future for all of us. It is the circle of Black wealth! I am singing it like the Lion King’s “Circle of Life” song. It’s what every other powerful constituency group has done and because of their wealth, they are able to shape public and private policy. It’s our turn to do the same.

Some might say Black people buying from other Black people is racist. Here are some facts. Every month:

  • The Asian dollar circulates for 20 days in their community
  •  The Jewish dollar circulates for 20 days in their community
  • The White dollar circulates for 17 days in their community
  • And sadly, the Black dollar only circulates for  six hours in ours. Sad isn’t it?

So that means every other group buys from each other except Black Americans. It also means unlike other racial groups, Black Americans are willing to buy from other groups. Finally it means the other groups mentioned, don’t buy from Black businesses. So who are the real racists and why can’t Black Americans practice what other groups do?

What’s my solution? This list and it’s a long one. It may not be much, but it’s a start, a chance to support a Black business and to grow Black wealth. This list has a Black owned bank and personal fitness businesses so you can go on Facebook and say the dreaded “new year new me” line. It also has retail, cosmetic companies, travel and tourism businesses and so much more. Some of the links also include discounts for our readers when you click the links below.

One more thing. This promotion to our thousands of readers is absolutely free. I don’t get a thing from this list. No one has paid me. So what do I get out of it? I want to grow Black businesses and Black wealth. Now that we cleared the air and I haven’t violated any FTC laws  I want you to shop and share this list today!

Thank you for your help and for reading. Spread the word. The only limit you have is the one you have placed on yourself. Think and be limitless.
