"How you gonna love somebody else, if you can't love yourself?" -Rupaul

Beyond consistent offensive cultural appropriation, marketing, racist remarks, being murdered by law enforcement, President #45, US criminal justice system, celebrities like Rosanne Barr and brands like Starbucks, Dove, H&M, and Zava, It Is Economically Imperative that we as Black people support Black owned businesses within our local, regional, national, and global communities.

The Black community is part of larger communities. Like a spoke in a wheel, a thriving Black community is an asset and great contributor to optimal functioning of the whole wheel. Broken spokes impede progress. It is our job, not other folks or entities, to take care of our individual and collective selves. Let's not allow a lack of awareness to be an impediment.
