25 Black Owned Online Stores For #BlackonBlackFriday

blackonblackfriday

Given the recent controversy and outrage over the events in Ferguson, there are many people of color who have opted out of supporting bIg businesses on this Black Friday. I have been asked numerous times over the past days what my stance on this issue is. I’m honestly just as angry/sad/surprised/concerned/hurt/(insert extreme emotion here) as everyone else is over the lack of justice for people of color. The Mike Brown incident was just a very small drop in the sea of discrepancies people of color face each and every day. And though I wish there was something tangible we could do on a united front, I don’t honestly believe the issues at hand can be solved in one fell swoop or with one retail boycott.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, and mine personally, is that we have SO much more work to do. More than a Black Friday boycott will solve. I also have to think about many of the minority (and non-minority) employees who may find themselves out of a job and unable to provide for their own families if something like a massive retail strike were to occur. With that said, I am now and have ALWAYS been a huge supporter of minority-owned businesses. Rather than focusing our efforts on trying to “hit” anyone where it hurts, I will be supporting some of my favorite black-owned retailers as part of the #BlackonBlackFriday movement. It doesn’t solve our post-racial society’s issues, but it makes me feel good knowing that I’m helping and supporting another entrepreneur of color.
