    One of our Beloved Brothas in the Afrikan Diaspora sent me this - I felt I should share it with the Family.

    yes i have and i'll watch that from now on

    but the economic violence will lead to infighting

    or war

    because

    change doesn't come easy

    but change is ever-present

    the onslaught is approaching

    see white people we're not mad at you

    we're justing trying to live and live healthy

    thank you

    i just hope you ARE aware

    My thing with this is - if Black folks are going to begin to build a solid Economy, then Our People in Business seriously need to look at and around the Communities. Furthermore, we need to COMMUNICATE! I do better when I am in Business with someone I know than someone I do not know, especially when we are in the same neighborhood!

    We need to hold classes teaching Black Business Owners how to reach our People, and attract Our People.

    Lastly - about the Asian folk - to be honest, if I was a 'Conscious' Businessman, and I was REALLY sick and tired of Chinese folks taking our Dollars via 'Economic Violence,' then I would build a consensus in the Community, and focus on having ALL NON-AFRIKAN-OWNED ESTABLISHMENTS removed from my Neighborhood.

    I agree completely.
    I'm not going to lie I buy non- black because black business is not plenty here.
    However when I see a brother on the street selling cd's towels,shirt,socks I buy at least half of what he has.
    Also in the mall there is this AFRICAN booth and I try to buy there as much as possible.
    I know black businesses is more expensive but we have to be!
    What I would like to find now is a black owned nail salon.
    There are plenty of barbeshops and beauty shops owned by us but all of the nail shops are asian owned.
    I luv to get my nails,feet done so where do I go that's black owned?:?:
    I have read some parts of this article before.
    It's so very true about the foods we eat.
    My question is how do we change our taste buds?
    Great article sistah
