African-Americans are NOT powerless! To the contrary, we have major power. There are over 40 million Black people in the United States. An estimated 1 TRILLION DOLLARS per year is spent with businesses and institutions that do not respect us. Bottom line is that our money is power! If we support those who respect us we will have more power to make our communities stronger!
In addition, if we don’t spend our money with those who disrespect us they will begin to think twice about the way they treat us. Furthermore, we need to support our own businesses and emphasize self-sufficiency. In a capitalistic society like America, Black America should learn to use their money as a tool with the goal of empowering businesses and institutions that employ, serve and respect the African-American community.
