everything he talked about was on point...mostly about businesses...Asians, spanish, arabs owning their own businesses and helping their own communities...so true..so true...
also the trust issue amongst us blacks when it comes to businesses...that is a major problem also..i go to these asian stores and they employ blacks, but not one black is on the register and if they r on the register there is an asian right there next to them while they ring up customers..
blacks don;t want to pay for the price of the item, always want to bargain with the owners to pay a cheaper price. So being a black business owner isn;t always a great thing also..
but i love everything he talked about and too bad if he hurt some feelings....
yesterday a friend of mine tole me a story about a friend of hers that is always tryna help the brothers. He owns a contracting business. He always tries to get bruhs that he knows needs a little change to handle some jobs. Painting etc.
She said that she had to hear from a female friend of hers (who utilized her male friends contracting services) about one of these dudes tryna hit on her while he was over painting her rooms. She was very uncomfortable because he kept asking her if she had a man and wouldn't drop it. Not to say that this is all folks but what i'm getting at is professionalism. Why is it such a prollem for ...some black businesses? The man had keys to her house so he could work while she was not there. She ended up leaving and once the job was done she changed the locks.
We need to support our own but we also need professionalism a part of this. I don't mind paying more for a product if it's from a black owned business but do me right. Treat me like you would treat a white person coming into your shop.
