Oh shit 😂
all of em lying “WE JUST CHILLIN. WE AINT DOIN NOTHIN.”
This is why I stress group economics.
We make everyone wealthy except for ourselves.
i’m gonna need you to calm your ankh down though bruh, because it’s not like black people in america are NOT starting their own businesses. many black people are self starters and innovators, whether you or society chooses to recognize them or not. there also is a historical struggle for black business owners to retain customers and credibility because of racism. people assume (black people included because of internalizing) that a black business is cheap, unworthy or not official compared to their competitors and they use their buying power elsewhere. that’s something you really should consider before blaming the structural poverty of black people on the fact that not enough of us are becoming business owners. *sucks teeth*
Y’all missing the point.
The post didn’t say start your own business or die.
It provides perspective on our purchase power. If we used more financial discipline and supported more black businesses we could build up our communities so that we don’t have to beg other groups for jobs.
WHY WOULD YOU RESORT TO NAME CALLING AND BASHING A POST ABOUT UPLIFTING OUR COMMUNITIES AND CREATING MORE JOB OPPORTUNITIES???
Let’s go there….
because this person is a fuckwit. If this information were reversed, if a Chinese American Council called a meeting to wit these numbers were presented, how long do you think they’d take before developing and enacting a business plan to address a serious issue of money outflow? Days? Weeks? Months? Years?
This information has been presented to Black people, politicians, community leaders, business leaders and they plan to act on that info next neveruary. Niggas talkin about they wanna be free, but don’t wanna control their own money. FOH withcha bullshit mayne.
Dr. Claude Anderson “Powernomics” been around since 2001, niggas act like they never heard of it.
so did you read the bolded or nah?
I’m guessing nah.
"Dr. Claude Anderson Powernomics been around since 2001, niggas act like they never heard of it."
And apparently niggas ain’t never heard of how anti-blackness, gentrification, redlining, prison industrial complex all play a part in Black people not having the resources to control their own money. Apparently niggas out here thinking Black folks are choosing to be oppressed, y’all niggas sure took to that new black mentality awfully quick.
Agreed. sounds like bootstraps 101
there’s a lot going on in this post.
first lets talk statistics. The graphic in its discussion of black buying power attempt to suggest that black people are spending too much money on thing that are frivolous in nature (which is a very subjective judgement but more on that later) and thus by extension we are will fully complicit in our condition with our own inappropriate behavior. However as i look at these statistics (assuming they are accurate and current) we don’t see any comparison of the buying power of the other racial groups mentioned or even a depiction on what the black dollar is not being spent on. If this is supposed to suggest that black dollar is being misspent evidence would suggest we are spending proportionally more than other racial groups or less on expenditures that are considered tools of wealth creation. There is no evidence of this. Also this set of statistics doesn’t differentiate between whether its black businesses, households, or single individuals buying. We dont know if we are discussion black americans or black immigrants. Multiple billons of dollars is a lot of money to us as individuals but in the context of all the people we are talking about all the people designated black by the people who came up with these statistics that’s not as much as you think. In addition it we don’t know if it was cash or credit person or how that money is distributed across the black population. We don’t know how much of this spending was done with black businesses. I imagine that wouldn’t be considered misspending.
Without a basis for comparison and without a disambiguation of these statistics all we have is the ‘what’ without ‘the how’, ‘the why’, or ‘the who’. That’s not enough to draw any sort of meaningful conclusion about black spending.
Secondly these statistics (and most statistics for that matter) don’t give context. Who in 2014 can afford not to have a cell phone? The way our society currently operates one is at a serious disadvantage not having a cell phone to be contacted at. You miss opportunities that way. Furthermore for many people a smartphone is the only access to the internet that many folk can afford. With so much of our lives and interaction (not to mention job applications) being available online sometimes only available online. A cell phone with internet service becomes essential. For heavens sake Business attire and work clothes are tax deductible. Our hair as it naturally exists is understood as unprofessional and there is significant social stigma from all segments of society to perm or have it styled in a particular way.
The biggest contextual issue was exactly as bitteroreo stated
And apparently niggas ain’t never heard of how anti-blackness, gentrification, redlining, prison industrial complex all play a part in Black people not having the resources to control their own money. Apparently niggas out here thinking Black folks are choosing to be oppressed,
there has been a concerted effort by public and private citizens and organizations to make black people into a permanent underclass who must consume as we all do in order to survive but never own. Take Black Wallstreet as example of that.
Ultimately, separating black buying habits from their contexts contributes to the attitude that the condition of black people is self inflicted and it is sloppy analysis and a lie.
While it is important that we as individuals and as a collective structure our spending around what is good for our community, it must be remembered that the racism and oppression of our society has given us no other choice.
