If yaw been reading this blog and following me for a while you know every now and again I'll share some of "𝗠𝘆 𝗠𝗼𝗺𝗺𝗮'𝘀 𝗪𝗶𝘀𝗱𝗼𝗺" quotes which includes sayings that I did not understand as a child but have a greater appreciation for now that I've matured💯
One of these sayings was...
"𝗬𝗢𝗨 𝗚𝗘𝗧 𝗜𝗧 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗪𝗔𝗬 𝗬𝗢𝗨 𝗨𝗡𝗗𝗘𝗥𝗦𝗧𝗔𝗡𝗗 𝗜𝗧"
Now yaw know that when a black mom gives you a morsel like that to chew on...it may not be too savory to the one doing the chewing if you know what I mean😝😭 lol. What does this have to do with another "We're On Your Side Letter"..?
IMO Companies Corporate America understands one thing PROFITS -- and that is as it should be. I mean after all I should understand because I'm a small 100% black owned micro business owner and proud of it! Small companies are the back bone of this country and micro 100% minority owned businesses are suffering not because of the riots, because our leading businesses has been shut down -- BEAUTY AND BARBER SALONS!!--aannnnd now they closed the doors for us to congregate and worship God 😭. What's going on folks?!
Yaw, Corporate America holds the political power and they understand the economic power of the black dollar 💵 and that's The Only -- let me repeat - THE ONLY THING THEY UNDERSTAND 💯 Periodt! This is why NOW you're gonna see a switch in gears from COVID (another topic from another time folks) "we're all in this together" "you're a hero" letters and ads from companies and businesses that you patronize sending out letters and commercials with the theme "we don't condone what's happening" "we are just as horrified"...you know the rhetoric. We all should be horrified and haunted by the monstrosities of racism and brutality that we saw which is just a glimpse of what is in the heart of another human being inflicted upon another
LISTEN 🗣️ HEAR ME: The system of a racism WAS CREATED and exists for economic power and gain PERIODT!! 𝙄𝙩 was not designed to be 𝙖 𝙨𝙪𝙨𝙩𝙖𝙞𝙣𝙖𝙗𝙡𝙚 𝙨𝙮𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙢 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙈𝘼𝙉𝙔 𝙗𝙪𝙩 𝙞𝙨 𝙙𝙚𝙨𝙞𝙜𝙣𝙚𝙙 to benefit the 𝙁𝙀𝙒!
THERE ARE NO RACES
WE ALL BELONG TO THE HUMAN RACE
YOU ARE MY BROTHER, MY SISTER, MY MOTHER, MY FATHER
Ok ok I'm Closing Because I Could Go On and On....
Yaw, we need to get some of my momma's wisdom in us...WE NEED TO LITERALLY MIND OUR BUSINESS & WORK ON OUR BUSINESS PLANS FOLKS!! Stop being lured by Tell-a-Vision and Social Media 👀that TELLS you what your VISION should be, what to wear, how to dress, what to follow and who to buy from!! Turn off that 📺 and get to work on your own God given gifts and talents!
WE NEED TO BUILD OUR OWN COMMUNITIES ECONOMICALLY WITH SMALL MICRO BUSINESSES that are run responsibly AND SHOP WITH THEM! Sure, not everyone owns a grocery store and we all need food, but maybe you can start a community garden or even pay someone for those home grown container tomatoes they bring you every year! (No false humility -- take that money chile and circulate it in your community)
Yaw remember the BUS BOYCOTTS?! This works!! 🛑🚌 Dr. King's I Have A Dream Speech WAS ABOUT THE POWER OF ECONOMICS (read it HERE) for yourself to EDUCATE YOURSELF to understand that we've been mis-educated into believing it was all about race -again-and look how WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES CAN FORM A MORE PERFECT UNION by using our dollars to break an evil system of segregation then and now. I think the good Dr. King knew they would "get it the way they understand it'.
We need to be ever vigilant. We need to pickup these tools and begin repairing the breach caused by the "well I made it, so can they" tribal mentality - WE ARE OUR BROTHERS KEEPER!!
🔥Keep Posted For More On The Subject of Our Relationship in My New Book: "The Behaviour of Royalty". I've been working on and off on this book since last year waiting to release it. I believe that NOW is the right time and I will be doing a rough copy self published release in a couple of weeks!🔥
We need to shop responsibly by knowing -- and I do mean KNOWING -- who we're buying from. This is easier to do when you 𝗦𝗵𝗼𝗽 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵 𝗦𝗠𝗔𝗟𝗟 𝗠𝗜𝗖𝗥𝗢 𝗕𝗨𝗦𝗜𝗡𝗘𝗦𝗦𝗘𝗦 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝟭𝟬𝟬% 𝗕𝗟𝗔𝗖𝗞 𝗢𝗪𝗡𝗘𝗗! Please STOP RUNNING TO THOSE "BLACK FACE" STORES AND WEBSITE buying those black face PRODUCTS WITH YOUR CHECK AS SOON AS YOU GET IT!! and just know this...that stimulus check, that extra unemployment ain't gonna last so don't get comfortable...it's an opportunity to create something for others. Start a beauty business HERE with a 100% black owned and operated beauty supply company that will help and guide you so you can teach and employ your kids, kids in the community, give that older woman down the street a job she can do from home. Come on yaw -- let's get back to basics with loving and caring for our neighbors.
GIVE A Man A FISH- He Eats For A Day🐟..TEACH A Man To Fish He Eats For LIFE🙌🏽 (Chinese proverb paraphrased)
While this is a re-awakening of America and it's a good thing that business and organizations are talking about the evil that exists in the hearts and minds it is ACTION that speaks louder - yours mine and theirs...SHOP RESPONSIBLY. STARTING TODAY, THIS WEEK, EACH FRIDAY, and EVERY DAY!!
