Every successful ethnic group does this, except blacks. Yes, black people need to start businesses, and market to others in the black community. That's the only way to true build wealth in the black community. This is what determines how good or bad community schools are, property values, policing, etc. In America, the biggest capitalist nation on earth, YOU MUST OWN SOMETHING! Thus far, blacks (for many reasons) are the group who spend the most (almost a Trillion$ a year) and own very very little when compared to other groups. Black people need to wake up, catch on and make owning and supporting black businesses a PRIORITY. Or risk being left completely behind.(Which may be the plan FOR us.)

I wonder why is it that we do so good in entertainment but not anywhere else like a deli? We will pay 20 bucks for our favorite rappers CD but we get annoyed at the thought of spending 5 bucks in a black owned restaurant.

I found a group on twitter called @blackownedbiz1 . They have a website called http://www.blackownedbiz.com where you can find thousands of black owned businesses. They are easy to find and you don't have to look very far.
The link didn't work. Why am I not surprised?

Let their businesses suffer and start supporting black owned businesses.
We need someone to send a list of black owned businesses or we need to google them in the state we live in. Sneakers and name brand clothes has made white's rich off of our ignorance. Blacks are buying $300 dollar shoes and whites are shopping at goodwill. Come on people, lets start putting our money to work for us. Don't support their resturants by eating out. Instead, buy groceries and cook yourself. The Asians are making a killing off of Blacks. You see all of them opening up stores in our neighborhoods selling hair products. I wouldn't buy another thing from them. They treat blacks like crap when you go in their stores. Make them go out of business by not buying from them.
We have the billion dollar a year fix. Support black owned businesses and stop supporting whites and asians. Buy only what you need. Save the rest!!!

I see so many companies with management lying through their corrupt teeth about hiring because they don't want to hire people of African heritage (browned skin), and its disgusting.

I tell you right now, if you aren't good enough to be hired because of your race, you aren't good enough to WASTE your money in their business either.

If you actually support businesses owned by Brotha's & Sista's you might actually see a boost in opportunity. If there are too many customers for a small business to handle, it would have to grow and hire (understand?). Curve want and the stupid Jones, and replace them an investment in actual stability.

It would actually require some work to make certain things happen, but support those that are worth the supporting.

********For anyone in here with the soul purpose of posting stupid bs about why all of this is doomed to fail. Take can take your intentions of sabotage and shove them up your a$$. If this subject is worth you writing something of the sort, it obviously is worth something because YOU don't want it to happen.********

One of the problems today is that younger Black people doesn't respect the older Blacks. Actually, they often seem to dislike older Black people and often are not interested in what they have to say.

Why be mad at whites Asians and Latinos and everyone else when they are all doing what they are suppose to do? It is not the responsibility of white people too look out for our best interest period! Wanna be mad? Be mad at the scorces of wealthy bm and women who don't do shiot for the black community! As far as racism goes yes it's there but whites are far less racist than these other groups and that's a fact!
He's not mad at whites, asians (and latinos, I don't think he mentioned them). He is just saying that black people need to be more astute with their money and build up their own communities INSTEAD of relying on whites and asians. Its a case of damned if we do and damned if we don't. Black people are forever being told to stop blaming others for their plight, so Mark comes along and encourages black people to start standing on their own 2 feet and people call him racist and angry. Typical.

Asians do it. They support their own. You hardly ever see them in a white owned hair salon. Hell now they have opened up their own supermarket called H-MART in Georgia. Blacks need to do the same. We have the spending power. Stop letting everyone else profit off of us. Find black owned businesses and use them. No more excuses. Just do it. Banks, clothing, etc....
We also need our own culture. We need go back to Islam of our ancestors brought from Africa.

No it is not islam. All the blacks from the slave trade are Israelites because in the bible it says the Israelites will be cursed with slavery and oppressing until the second coming. And islam hates blacks in the quran it says if you sleep with a black woman you will become sick and die.

I am with it! Let us in the know get together for our greater good. We need to organize our skilled and form schools to educate those who are ripe for this righteous cause. We don't need the rich or famous. We need people of our group, who has deep love for us to do the work with our group. We need this now! I grow weary working for others, contributing to their success. I am discontent waiting for ''them'' to recognize my greatness. I don't want scraps and neither should our children. The $$$ that goes toward weaves alone should buy and sustain a vital educational system for us. We make others rich, why not do the same for us! God supports this and so does history. We have such a vast culture that would create opportunity beyond belief. Time to Turn Up for real!

Two things you ignorant self important blacks need to be aware of, first off, all this talk of starting your own black businesses just to get back at evil racist Whitey is typical of your race, you never think to do anything on your own just to better your lot in life but as a knee jerk reaction to a perceived injustice & that's why you as a people will always be doomed to fail because your intentions are not genuine, secondly as for eating in evil racist Whiteys restaurants, ever think that since the days of the civil rights movement when you demanded & got the right to be served & eat in our restaurants that our cooks weren't & probably still are spitting, pissing & wiping your food in the cracks of their asses first? Now you think about that the next time you dare come in a White owned or managed restaurant with your s#!teating (pun intended) attitudes like we are waiting hand & foot to serve your sorry asses for a few of your measly welfare dollars.
