Juniques Destroys the Myth, Black People Do Not Support Each Other!!!!

No alt text provided for this image

For far too long, a narrative has persisted that Black people do not support each other intentionally. This harmful stereotype suggests that Black people are somehow inherently unsupportive of one another, and that this lack of support is a major factor in the economic struggles faced by the Black community.

However, this narrative is not only untrue, but it also ignores the very real economic challenges faced by many Black people in the US. The reality is that Black people have less to spend on discretionary items, and as a result, their consumer dollars often leave the community quickly and do not recirculate.

To understand why this is the case, it is important to first acknowledge the economic disparities that exist within the Black community. Black people in the US face systemic barriers to economic opportunity, including a wage gap, discrimination in hiring and promotion, and limited access to capital and financing. These barriers have led to a significant wealth gap between Black and white households, with the median Black household earning less than 60% of the median white household.


As a result of these economic challenges, many Black people are forced to prioritize spending on basic necessities such as housing, food, and healthcare. This means that they have less money available for discretionary spending on non-essential items such as entertainment, luxury goods, and services.

Additionally, many Black people live in neighborhoods with limited access to Black-owned businesses. This can make it difficult for them to support Black-owned businesses even if they want to, as they may have to travel significant distances or pay higher prices for goods and services.

Contrary to the harmful stereotype, Black people do in fact support each other when they are able to do so. In fact, a recent study found that Black consumers are more likely to support Black-owned businesses than any other racial or ethnic group. However, the reality is that Black consumers often have limited options when it comes to where they can spend their money.

To address this issue, it is important to invest in economic development within Black communities, including supporting Black-owned businesses and creating opportunities for wealth-building and job creation. This can include initiatives such as community-led economic development projects, access to capital and financing, and targeted job training programs.

In addition, it is important to shift the narrative around Black economic behavior. Rather than blaming Black people for not supporting each other, we must acknowledge the systemic barriers and economic challenges that make it difficult for them to do so. By working to address these challenges and creating new opportunities for economic growth and development, we can build a more equitable and just society for all.
