    The point is that people of our culture have been unaware of businesses that other people from our culture have started or maybe were in business for awhile,primarily because your culture only allows us to see or hear what is being produced by your culture

    Ephesha Luvmeorhateme Figueroa is that American culture? My point is that if someone of my culture(as you put it) printed or posted this there would be an uproar. It is a double standard. I stand by my point that it is divisive.

      I think its strange how other cultures,asians,muslim communities,jewish communities can stand unified together with no problem. But as soon as Black folks start coming together in unity, coming together supporting each other,, were called racist. We cant be racist. Racist equals power. Usually one group holding another group of individuals back based on color, sex, etc. So you see, weve never had this power.Whites are not hurt by the everyday flow of society, as other cultures are. Not to mention the hundreds of stores I walk into and cant find my hair products. Why?? Because they do not cater to me. So to have a directory of stores where I can find what I need. Is not racist. Putting money back into our communities are not racist, choosing to spend money at a small business instead of going to walmart is not racist. Sorry about the rant. But not sorry, I just find it funny.. Its called unity, its called supporting each other. Not racism.

    Kimberly Daly . Im confused.. If a white person tried to start a group like what? Im not sure where your getting at. Is it because it says this site is a voice for the black community??

    Kimberly Daly It is so NOT divisive.. but needed! How is it that people can complain all day about "black on black" crime, and blacks being behind economically and that our communities and families are dyfunctional etc. People say that we dont help each other and we do nothing to help ourselves but wait on handouts or wait for white folks to be good enough to save us. Folks always got something negative to say about black folks. Well you cant complain about us not helping each other and how we dont do things that foster economic growth for our communities, and then in the same breath call us racist for when we DO try to help each other. You cant tell us to "do something about your own people" and then call us racist when we have initiatives aimed at and for black people to help solve the very problems everyone complains about. You can have it both ways. No one is saying that we shouldnt spend money with folks of other races, but we are saying we SHOULD spend SOME of our dollars with other blacks because in the end it helps us all economically. Why wouldnt we as blacks want to do that? Why wouldnt we want to purposefully help each other? Everyone knows that our businesses sometimes dont have the exposure or support as some others. We are the only group of people who get criticized for trying to help each other. Jewish people spend their money amoungst themselves for generations and dont apologize for it and nobody bats an eye. Everyone else can form their own communities and their money changes hands INSIDE that community many times before it leaves. But as soon as black folk talk about doing it, we are called racist. ITS NOT RACISM. It takes the hood to save the hood. No one is saying you cant ever buy things from other races. Black people have extreme amounts of buying power. Lets focus some of that energy on our own so we can help each other out

    Monique Caston EXACTLY! Furthermore no one is telling whites or other races that they cant buy from these black owned businesses. As a matter of fact instead of complaining, whites like Kimberly Daly can buy from black businesses as well. Lord knows weve been buying from white businesses all of our lives for just about everything. Thats what some of them dont understand. They are on the inside looking out. They have not been marginalized as a race so they dont understand the perspective we have. Segregation may have ended legally, but most everything was/is still owned by white people. Everything from major chain stores to the media. So there was no need to label things "White Entertainment TV" or "whitelivesmatter" or 'Whitegirlsrock" or "White history month" because everything already is/was 'white" and advertised or told from the perspective of white america. Blacks and POC were largely left out. Everytime I see a white person complaining about a supposed double standard about how we would feel if there was a call to support white businessness, i want to laugh. Because we already support whtie businesses daily. But it kills me the way white folks come on forums related to issue that affect us and try to tell us how we should help each other. Even today black folks are given business loans less often than other races. If we know that was struggle economically has a race, spending some of our dollars with other blacks as a means to help close that economic gap is anything but racist. We stand ready to help ourselves in everyway and that includes economically as well

    @kimberlydaly Why are u even on this page?? U can support who u want. There was a Black Wall Street where my ppl had n still regain our economics and not have to depend on whites controlling every damn thing..usually when white ppl do things like this it most of the time pertains to ignorance n race….black ppl want to have the utmost right to support our ppl like others can come into this country and build their businesses n communities up. Get off the page w ur dumb thinking cuz u white ppl make me sick with your lack of understanding another's experience or culture….

    Monique Caston we should NEVER apologize for wanting and choosing to help OUR ppl. Always some bs coming from another's mouth or comments from ppl that no nthn abt trying to understand us yet try to be us in other ways….support ur local black owned bank as well…There were 54 in 1994, yet now are 21smh…this is an accomplishment for us everyday. Enemies will never want to seeus succeed. They need a scapegoat while they look like the heroes

    Every town needs several types of directories, Maryland alone has MORE THAN 20,000 Black Owned Businesses in the state. They are in several industries represented.

  35. William Charles Wilkins
    Dec 20, 2015 - 02:30 PM

    These 20,000 Black Owned Companies in MARYLAND account for less than 20% of the business in the state. There is a dramatic need for more entrepreneurs to work together, and for people to support these companies. The issue is that historically white owned companies have the dominant marketshare, and do not employ or support others in proportion to the way that we support them with our investment. The truth is that there are lots of companies, but they are just like any other company. Just as Whites choose to "stick together" and drive the majority of spending, it's very healthy for minorities to support eachother in business, because they are not anywhere near the earnings and marketshare of the majority business class. #balance

  36. William Charles Wilkins
    Dec 20, 2015 - 02:42 PM

    Most black owned companies, tend to service mostly minorities, and serve as a viable option for consumers. In my personal experience as an entrepreneur and speaking with other black entrepreneurs, we all have RARELY EVER been supported by Whites, and recognize that every consumer has a preference for business environment. One friend who has operated a deli kiosk in a predominantly upscale location for over 5 years reports to me that Whites often come in, see him and walk out maybe about 60%, and the others have enjoyed his product. He acknowledges that Blacks have done the same thing to a lesser degree, around 20%. Usually he says if they ask whether or not he OWNS THE STORE, AND IF HE SAYS YES, 1/2 WILL WALK OUT. We must make it NORMAL TO OWN THINGS, not just work for others. Undoing stigma of jealousy, can help us to build relationships in the community. Black Companies can help Whites, and vice versa. Business is there for the community. I have no data on any comparable situation first hand.

    Kimberly Daly You just said you are going to boycott them simply because someone put their business on a catalogue to help people find black owned business's? Okay and you are fussing that there is even a catalogue for them in the first place. You literally came on here to start crap. THIS ISN'T ABOUT YOU. This is about none of these black owned business are known or have commercials. Get the hell out of herr you stupid idiot.

  38. Amber Yates
    Jul 12, 2016 - 01:18 PM

    Kimberly Daly of course you didn't! We don't even have to ask about that. Its just the fact that you are here spreading hate and racist crap. Why not look at the article and think "Hey, let me help too!" instead of "oh my gosh my white feelings are hurt." get out of here. Stupid.
