How often do you support black businesses? Black people often choose convenience over seeking out African-American businesses. That isn’t really a bad thing but for black people sometimes the most convenient thing isn’t the best thing for our hair, skin or even our personal style.
As a person of color we have to sometimes shop differently. And who knows better about the things a person of color needs than a person of color? In order to start making effective changes within the African-American economy we have to start by supporting black businesses.
Webuyblack.com has over 1500 products to choose from including, clothing, shoes, accessories, natural hair products, natural hygiene products, books, restaurants and much, much more.
This site has everything a man or women of color could possibly need. A percentage of every dollar spent on the site will go to a black nonprofit. Support a business that is supporting you and everyone wins in the end.
As black people if we want to see a change we have to start doing things on our own. I’m not saying you have to stop eating at your favorite restaurant or stop shopping at your favorite store because it isn’t black owned. But you can support black owned businesses a little more each day and webuyblack.com is your guide and source for black owned businesses and products. Besides who wouldn’t want to shop at a place that has the exact kind of shampoo you need for your natural hair? Or a place that knows exactly what kind of soap will bring out the radiance of your brown skin?
