"Economists say the average dollar earned by blacks stays in our community for 6 hours. Compare that to the white community. Dollars circulate in the white community for 17 days!
 
Some laugh at our spending habits -- then they harvest our dollars like locusts in a field of corn. They don’t care that strong black businesses are good for the ENTIRE community. Considering the potential to lower crime and violence, ALL people should make a point of supporting black businesses
