If you want more black business then get the road block out of their way. Reduce regulation and taxes on businesses. We have never been a country of the collective but of the individual. Race is only 0.05% of the genetic makeup in our dna. It is a free country you can spend your money where you want. I was just saying I have a colorblind approach when looking to put my money in.
Perhaps this is the problem, not the solution.
Personally, i do not bank. period. Cash only and pool resurces with family.
It seems that every community except the black community uses the household as a model for organization, pooling resources together, while black folks (not all) talk about being colorblind and diffusing economic power.
If you go to a korean bank who do you think most of their clients are?
If you go to a japanese owned bank who do you think most of their clients are?
If you go to most white-owned corporate banks who do you think most of their clients are?
If you ask most black people, where do we do most of our banking?
race and class in this society are stil inextricably linked and the only ones who seem to be blind are black folks who think we are "free".
