I would love it if these types of initiatives corresponded with some financial planning education that would increase our financial empowerment as a community.

We need address the issue that a lot of what we buy is not contributing positively to our financial health as a community. So instead of just "don't buy from others" or "buy black only" it should be that AND "spend 30 minutes writing a budget" or "here's how to not waste money on cable/cell phone/other contract items" or "the economics of putting money on your people's books".

I see. It's unfortunate because I think it's alienating a lot of people who have no choice. If we stopped doing particular things all at once for at least one day, people could literally see how much money is lost when blacks r unhappy.

It has to have a number that's easy to compare the loss to. It's too random to boycott everything and it's asking a lot considering there r barely any black businesses where a lot of us live. The impact will b shown if we concentrate our efforts. Plus it holds individual companies to be held accountable and make changes where they can before we lift the heat from them personally.
