I was in the mall and overheard an interesting conversation about how “WE” will have no problem paying businesses full price for items that they sell until we get to a Black Business… Then it’s “Can you do it for this much,” or “Well, I can get it for cheaper over there.”
I must say I have guilty of it. I feel different when I walk into a black-owned establishment. I feel like I’m talking to family, and I don’t pay family full price. So, as I write this I realize that I have a complex with my people. I expect too much from them, in a very backwards way.
What’s wrong with my thinking? Why do I expect my people to win, when I don’t fully contribute to their success? My presence isn’t enough. It’s more so how much I spend when I’m there.
Money helps businesses be successful, not being black. Your money is more important than time in the world of commerce.
So, why do “WE” short change “OUR” people? Take our poll. And check out the conversation below.
