I was talking to my momma and she was dropping knowledge left and right. She said everybody would go grocery shopping and all that the day before, so sales would skyrocket for white business owners. Then she went on to say we should do this for a month. I agreed of course, but I believe we should also buy our products from black owned stores—even if the prices are a little higher at mom n pop shops.
Seriously, just sit and imagine how many Black Wall Street communities we gon have! I’m not saying it’s gon be easy but it’ll sure as hell be worth it. We have to start showing love to our brothers and sisters who put in the work to have their own businesses!
And please y’all, hiss at anyone who asks for ‘the hookup’ or is tryna free ball they way to get things. THAT SHIT AINT HELPING US, IT’S ADDING TO THE STEREOTYPE.
IF IT HURTS THEIR POCKETS, THEN IT HELPS OURS.
P.S. If you’re following me PLEASE reblog this. If we want progress we gotta do it for ourselves. Help each other. It’s about time we held ourselves accountable to build up our own communities. If you’re TIRED of every other race having their own _____town EXCEPT us then let’s do something about it!
BREAK. EVERY. CHAIN.
