Reply to "How to Leverage Trillion Dollar Black Spending Power"

One of the main problems that I see with African American economic independence is the fact that so many Black minds that think alike are so far away from each other, or often do not even know the other exists.  Case-in-point, all of the members on this site, I think we are all from different states.  If we all lived in the same state or the same city, maybe we could have implemented something by now.  Another thing is, that there are so many out there telling us what needs to happen, without a plan to go about making it happen.  The Million Dollar Black Spending Power Campaign” is a good start.  


ER is right in that Black entrepreneurship within the community is greatly needed because many of us live in cities where there really are not too many Black businesses to begin with, but, we shouldn't throw in the towel just yet.  We also need those with knowledge of how to get all of the free money that the Federal Government doles out, to make this information privy to African American entrepreneurs, and those that want to establish non-profit organizations that are beneficial to the community, as well as those interested in the education and well-being of our children.  Just like Koco, I'm not ready to accept that African Americans are now or will be a permanent underclass anytime soon.  We just need find some way for enough like minds to connect in the first place, [with blueprints in hand].  


[My big idea about how to start the ball rolling, as I've said for years now, is first for a Map of African America to be created, and then start from there.]
