Buying from #blackowned businesses doesn't mean anything UNLESS that money is being reinvested into the community. The money that touches these businesses never circulate in the community. Black business owners, this should be a wake-up call to begin REALLY reinvesting into black communities aka the hood.

I don't mean giving back to churches or giving back to schools, I mean actively giving back to the community in ways that the community can see change. From having roads paved to investing in programs that teach black youth their true history. #blackempowerment

I wholeheartedly agree. The black dollar leaves us every fifteen minutes.

true ! the same translates for some african communities. even though most businesses are black, people would rather make 1000s of dollars to send one family member abroad than investing direct in the betterment of their situation or community.
