    Unfortunately, many of us are still very skeptical about “buying black”. It always amazes me how clients are shocked and sometimes one can see them hunting to find a fault, even a possible cobweb on the ceiling of my business place. Why are we still of the mindset that our own businesses are sub-standard ? Frankly, in this supposed age of enlightenment it is scary. If we do not support and encourage each other, then who would?

    @Marsha-Ann…I understand where you are coming from.  I personally look for Black Owned to support our bothers and sisters.  However, I have family members who will not only give a Black Owned Business a hard time on many occasions they don’t even give it the time of day.  It saddens me that there are still many of us out there.  Things that they would not tolerate from a Black Owned Business they will accept from elsewhere.  I also wonder if it’s generational.
