To OS and all those readers who think like him, here is the truth, we as a race must help ourselves and stop looking for the gov't to save us. You want to blame Obama for a global slowdown and point to the fact that blacks were not doing well under him. However, as someone once said, if the white man gets a cold, we get the flu which relates to any economic slowdown.
We have our cure for our flu, and it is called supporting black-own businesses. Yes, how many of those people like you are putting some of their money in a black owned bank? How many of you support black owned businesses? Why don't our organizations place their money in a black bank? In fact, every black mega church should have all its money in a black bank which will cause our banks to increase in value and make some good investments.
Let face it we make over a trillion dollars a year, and if we spend 10% of that money supporting our own, that would be 100 million a year that flows through black hands. Based on what I learned in business classes, we should let it circulate at least five times before it leaves our communities. That 100 million will have the effects of half a trillion dollars. The bottom like we need to bank, buy, and build black.
