Black Ideas Matter When Blacks Make Them Matter
Real talk: Not until Black business owners, Black investors, Black government officials, the Black chambers of commerce, Black entrepreneurs, Black activists, Black affluent [at large], Black advocacy groups, and the Black consumer all come together on socioeconomic fronts, and drive the message with ACTION that Black ideas matter — will the United States of America’s historical business community of White men unequivocally accept the idea that Black ideas matter.
Smart elementary view: Money talks, and so action means taking an enormous accumulation of funds and pairing it with the right types of human capital, and then redirecting those resources to Black-owned businesses, start-ups, and new ideas, in the face of White corporate America. As African Americans have suffered enough concerning the lack of business-ownership, and any accompanied prosperity thereof, it’s time for America to build a level playing field for its broader business community.
Let’s be truthful: Although acquiring access to capital has been extremely difficult for Black-owned businesses in the U.S. [as this article appropriately reveals], historically, Blacks not supporting Black-owned companies has significantly contributed to the failures of Black-owned businesses, Black start-up companies, and Black conceived ideas, as well.
