Based on data from Nielsen Company, African-Americans will have $1.1 trillion in collective buying power by 2015(increasing to $1.3 trillion by 2017)
I keep seeing a lot of people on social media who don’t understand the impact of black people using the power that we have as a tool for justice. For those who are completely unaware of the significance of BUYING POWER, have you been living under a rock? Or can it be possible that we are just as ignorant as the rest of the world believe us? Continuing to rush out and spend your money with corporations that don’t like BLACK PEOPLE, who could care less about the psychological distress of the black community in the wake of the recent Michael Brown NOT GUILTY VERDICT, which has exacerbated the need for black lives viewed as valuable(not to mention the countless other Michael Browns). The police are killing us everyday and all we can think about is going to spend money we don’t have at a BLACK FRIDAY sale.
I encourage BLACK PEOPLE to pick up a book and READ about the influence of white supremacy on black consciousness, instead of standing in line to buy a pair of JORDAN’S, a flat screen TV or any of the other materialistic items that we wish to buy to appear WEALTHY. That will do nothing but put more money into the pockets of the VERY WEALTHY people who use that very same money to pay off politicians to continue to create laws, and initiatives that continue to oppress and keep black people right where they want us: BROKE, struggling to survive and as they would call it INFERIOR! Wake up, understand what is going on politically. We have all been conditioned and it is time to take a stand and fight back. The only real way for to received justice is to stop PATRONIZING big businesses who are against us, STOP spending money outside of our communities. Learn about what it takes to become a business owner so that BLACK businesses can be built, which can uplift the community, provide jobs, unity and a sense of pride and stability for generations to come.
PROTESTING IS NOT THE SOLUTION PEOPLE
Do not purchase anything on line or in person except for necessities unless it’s a black owned business.
We will use our dollars to get the justice we deserve.
No Justice, No Profit, Let’s Shut’em Down.
