<![CDATA[We Buy Black]]>Mon, 28 Aug 2017 07:00:00 GMThttp://rockafro.com/kamonas-blog/we-buy-blackBlack buying power is expected to increase to a level of $1.3 trillion by the end of 2017. And yet, Black folks don’t have jobs because they are creating so many jobs for other communities. For all of this wealth, we don’t feel wealthy because we are sending all of our money outside the Black community. Dr. Boyce Watkins said that with over $1 trillion, one can buy: 1,000 NFL teams; 3,000 predominantly white universities; the annual budget of 1.4 million charter schools across the nation; pay the tuition at Howard University for 50 million students for an entire year; buy 854,000 community centers; purchase NBC, ESPN and CBS and still have $1 trillion left over. As black consumers we are exploited, incarcerated and disrespected by the same institutions & establishments we give our hard earned money to. We can march, hold protests for social injustices until we are blue in the face, but if we turn right around and give our money to our oppressors we've accomplished very little. Our power is in our collective dollar. With a little effort each of us can make a big difference. We need to resurrect Black Wall Street. Put your money in Black banks. Buy Black products. Eat from Black farms. I have included links to help you discover Black owned Businesses. Stay Woke Family, I love you, unapologetically black-Kamona
