Why is it that folks always get to come into our community and profit from it? Horowitz is making a $10 million investment in this company selling primarily to black folks and to top it off the company has a Yiddish name. Yeah the hair dressers are getting 15% but how much of that other 85% is going back into the community?
It saddens me even more to know that if someone within the community had the idea for this same company...I am almost certain that the hoops they would have had to go through would have made it almost impossible to happen.
I can't wait for the day that the tides turn and there is more of a balance of black folks as producers & consumers.
