Blacks Buying from Blacks Matters!


Blacks Buying from Blacks Matters!

Black buying power in the USA is now over 1.5 trillion dollars: The goal of this group is to manifest the Principles of Kwanzaa into an every day practice with Blacks buying products and services from other Blacks as a casual act instead of a forced, rare  or awkward practice. This will grow power, prestige and more money! Being Black should not be a reason to not buy.

Black profits matter!

Negative folks are invited to not be a part of this group. Spend your money and time in your beloved "mainstream!". This is about our DREAM!

Of course buying these would be a fantastic sample of dealing in legal Black-Money.

In African-American neighborhoods, I see a vast sea of neon-lit liquor stores often owned and operated by people who are not black - people who sell us the booze and tobacco we consume to our own cruel demise.

I see so-called beauty supply stores filled with lucrative Indian Remy hair weave mountains that contribute to our vain attempt to try to morph ourselves into a Eurocentric standard of beauty. All the while, shop clerks watch us like rude prison guards on the yard, from the time we enter the doors until we exit, as if we might steal something.
Some speak to each other in their native tongue in our presence, smirk or snicker. And you get the sense they are talking about you.

Inside nail shops, technicians wear masks while cleaning, filing and polishing the nails of patrons who inhale the fumes that rush forth like a consuming whirlwind upon entering its doors.

Across the ghetto and also the black suburban landscape, I see gas stations and convenience stores where bulletproof glass partitions separate "them" from "us" and where we slip our cash into an impersonal metal tray. I see restaurants where foreign immigrants sell us greasy fried chicken and fish, or pizza.

I see the rise of non-African-American beauty salons that "specialize" in black women's hair. Cellphone and urban hip-hop clothing stores run by people outside our community but who see our consumerism as a gold mine.

It is clear in my mind that they don't really care about us. They do not live in our neighborhoods. Nor attend our houses of worship.
And yet, they covet our green dollars - with an estimated buying power of at least $1 trillion among the collective of black America, according to a 2013 Nielsen report.

I can hear it now: "John Fountain is a racist." Yeah, whatever. ... How? Because I write what I see? Because my heart aches over the perpetual plunder of my people and the erosion of our neighborhoods while economic carpetbaggers fill their coffers and go back home?
What should I feel, say, when I sense, taste, the disdain that people of other ethnic groups have for black folks while at the same time making their living on the backs of black folks?

I also wonder whether we would be allowed to set up liquor and tobacco stores or require the exchange of currency and goods through glass partitions and metal trays. Whether it would be OK for us to refer to middle-age male customers as "bud," "boss" and "dude" instead of "sir."

the Johnson Publishing Company empire, at its peak, was one of the richest and most influencial of all indie Black owned enterprises.  It even built its own downtown Chicago skyscraper office building.  That is really dealing in legal Black-Money.

By the 1980s we created several massive Black Beauty empires that hires thousands of folks as chemists, in marketing, advertisement, design, distribution and retail.  Now they are gone. Replaced by Koreans and the Chinese.  All of those millions flowing out of the Black community in the name of "Bling" or being "cute".  Then we cry that government policy is to blame.  The better path is one of dealing in legal Black-Money. Buying regularly from legal Black businesses on purpose.

Are you dealing in legal Black-Money? Buying and investing in Blacks in legal enterprises. Are you? Or are you a part of the Black On Black Boycott where one uses any reason or excuse to not buy from Black enterprises.

Question on Grad School Program of Neuroscience

Posted by AL Bey on November 19, 2017 at 2:33pm 0 Comments

Hello Peeps,

Currently I'm in the final stages of applying for a grad program at Michigan State called Literary Neuroscience. This program has had "general" internet info circulating for maybe only 7 years, with arguably a location of no more than 5 schools in the whole USA. After taking the GRE today and sending out my scores to these scores, I was curious in wondering, "Are there any predominantly/historically black schools that house programs with similar combined studies of literature and cognition?" Even though the term "literary neuroscience" is relatively new, I'm sure the concept isn't. As an old saying goes, "There is nothing new under the Sun." Plus, one of thee world's foremost conventional experts on Brain Surgery & Neuroscience is renown doctor/author, Ben Carson, also from Detroit, MI. If anyone has answers and/or feedback to this vital question, let me know. And even if I do end up in Michigan, East Lansing is likely to be somewhat of a post-gentrified Nu…

That's right i said it Challenge for the week if you are an Artist,Writer, whatever the case. If you are a writer do 10 Pages a day for the next week and prove it by Saturday the 25th. That is 70 pages by one week. Now here is the caveat you have to do it in the time frame of your normal day if you cant than try using an hour by hour schedule to see what you are doing that is wasting some time. Nuff said we are all adults here we go!

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
