Some people think Black Americans need to boycott Black Friday 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 the money is power. So instead of boycotting, why not buy Black on Black Friday 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 produces 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. 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?Well y’all know me and my lists. I am putting together another list of Black businesses to shop on, on Black Friday. It may not be much, but it’s a start and a chance to support a Black business. So if you want your or any Black owned business included please feel free to send me:
