I used the wrong title to this thread. I meant to name it "Black people spent 631 billion last year." The reason why I posted the article was fo years, I been hearing that black people spend ova 600 billion dollars on stuff. But, black owned businesses get less than 10 percent. This black spending power is making every other group or rich, except black people. Also, I agree wit what Claud Anderson, Jawanza Kunjufu, James Clingman, and Ridley Muhummad said in the article. Black people need to spend some of they income wit black owned businesses. I do spend some of my money wit black owned businesses in my town. Also, when I go outta town, I look for black owned businesses.
