I asked a good buddy of mine recently if she thought a movement called Black Economics Day would work. I explained that Black Friday, which has its roots in slavery, should be renamed and re-purposed to empower all Black-owned businesses worldwide.
She suggested starting the movement early on in the year so when Black Friday and the holiday shopping season finally approached, we would already be mentally prepared to spend money with our community and forsake the glamour of the White corporations.
I’m going to ask everyone who has a Facebook page, Twitter account, Reddit, LinkedIn account and all other forms of social media to pass this post onto 10 people.
I’m also going to ask those of you that read my blog to reblog this post to as many other bloggers as possible who share my sentiments about taking something that is entrenched in the pain and suffering of others and turn it into a positive economic situation.
Power is never given. You must take it for yourself.
We have all that you need this shopping season…books that cater to romance, education, children, clothing, accessories, home decor, personal products, jewelry, etc. I already ordered my book to support this movement:
And cannot wait to curl up with a nice cup of hot tea in front of the fireplace.
Let’s begin a worldwide movement.
Support Black Economics Day.
If you agree with this post, pass it on.
I love you, my Melanin Family!
