There is a new Facebook page  called The Black Business List, which lists black owned companies.
https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-BLACK-Business-LIST/771597732879039  like them to show your support.

Not sure how many of you are on FB, but I first heard about this on the buy black economics page. They had an event on the 8th, and for every Friday after. I found a lot of B.O.B's on there. The only place I went to was a black owned grocery store.

I am going to try to do this next weekend. Not Friday but saturday/sunday.

I feel weird though because a part of me wants to tell the black owners why, but I don't want to make them feel uncomfortable.

I found a a black owned grocery store, but it s a franchise and the store sucks.

Jesus, why couldn't wholefoods be black owned? :(

I don't know what I am going to do long-term about gas.

I just read their story. Never thought about buying gas cards from black owned gas stations and using them elsewhere. That was smart.

Every black restaurant I know (3)in my city is closed on Mondays. Sleepy I was ripping and runnin and so hungry. I had this same problem on Labor Day. This is a mess.

I'm going to look for more black owned business. I bought about $50 worth of product at the black owned beauty supply and I was definitely remindin folk that I own a Mary Kay business... and I'm black LOL

All in all, a good day.

Thanks for that link Ice!!!!

I am so happy, I felt the same way the people from article did. And thanks to that site, I just found a black bank.

I am still having troubles finding black owned gas stations :(
