I just got done reading a fairly
new article on Black OWNED business.
Every time my black people purchase
at black businesses they are helping
the black race. I call it investment.
The more you invest in black business
community the more you help our black
race and the more you help yourself.
The man writing the article
discusses how he had a discussion with
SC house of Representative DIST 111 REP
FLoyd. Mr. Floyd is a cadet at the
Citadel, a leader, an Army officer
who served in IRaq,fied organizer for the
state Democratic Pary, and an assistant
to Rep Jim Clyburn.
So this conversation this man
had with Rep Floyd involved the state
of Black America. Also they talked about
how to bring more resources to Dist 111.
THis led to a discussion on the disparities
in the black community.
Middleton says there are some of our Black
people who belive they should not keep
on with the quest for equal rights and
opportunities. But we really do need
to continue with that journey.
Socially there is a progress,
but money wise this process is slow.
Another person in the discussion says that
integration has caused the DOWNFALL of
economic progress in the BLACK community.
Before integration, Black businesses
grew. This is what
the guy said in the discussion.
My black people can do anything,
My black people built this world
and we can sure as ever keep
succeeding by ourselves. It does
not require an outside force. All
my black people coming together is
a FORCE in itself.
The guy in the discussion
says the perfect example of how
integration led to the decline of
some black owned businesses is the
Former dee Dex Snack Bar. Around
the 1960s and 1970s, integration
got fast food restaurants like Piggy
Park and the Patio opened. Until then,
Dee Dex Snack Bar used to be the premier
fast food restaurants for black people
The more our black race sticks
together, the more we have. The more
we stick together and help each other
the less problems. Our black people
should hold hands, come together,
think on the world’s issues and formulate
a success plan. Now that would be beautiful
the biggest African American gathering.
Power to the People!
