“Why” is one of the most important questions you can ask yourself. You should always know your “why.” I know why some people buy Gucci, Prada and Balenciaga. For some of them its status, for others its quality and for other others its style. Whatever the reason, the cost doesn’t seem to matter all that much because there’s a strong desire tied to owning those high-end garments and that’s fine. You work hard for your money, do with it what you will but circulating the black dollar is imperative and essential to the growth, sustainment and legacy of black businesses. Support black owned businesses before it’s popular to do so.
One more time for those in the back.
Support black owned businesses before it’s popular to do so.
It shouldn’t matter if that business has 100 followers or 100,000 – if you like what you see, buy it. It’s simple. Now, you probably figured I’d answer the question, “Why should you support black owned businesses,” with some passionate, long, monologue because I’m a black business owner myself, shameless plug – KulturallyAppropriate.com. However, I can’t answer that for you. But I will say this, if you are a black person, you know why you should buy black owned but if you choose not to, that’s fine, for every person who won’t there’s 10 million more that will. My advice to black business owners – focus on the 10 million.
Here are a list of some black owned businesses you should support:
