Why support a Black owned business? When the Black dollar is injected into the economy, businesses see tremendous financial growth as a result. When you support a Black owned business, you are contributing to helping close the economic wealth gap between Black people and other groups of people. Simply stated, “Gaps in wealth between Black and white households reveal the effects of accumulated inequality and discrimination, as well as differences in power and opportunity that can be traced back to this nation’s inception.” (Examining the Black-white Wealth Gap, retrieved 2/1/2021 from https://www.brookings.edu/blog/up-front/2020/02/27/examining-the-black-white-wealth-gap/)
Many business owners are aware of the impact of the Black dollar. Take a gander at this video fashionably titled “The Secret to Selling The Negro”, a documentary done in 1954 highlighting why certain tactics in selling to Black people make the seller a ton of money.
Being more conscious about where you spend your money could be the difference between and contributing to creating billionaires out of millionaires or creating generational wealth where no such vision or legacy previously existed.
