How many times have you been to a black owned business and either was displeased with the service or a lack thereof? How many times have you went to yelp or the white pages and took the time to right a good review of a black owned business? If you can count on one hand then that's a reality check. Is it the fault of our own or the business owner that we didn't have a pleasant experience at their business? Did that one bad experience turn us off to any future dealings with black establishments? Do we think that other races, white, chinese, jews, have a better quality service or product? It is something to think about. Maintaining or starting a business is a challenge in itself but when you add the race card on top of that, it then becomes a double challenge. We then, just like everything else, have to work extra hard to avoid or put an end to that stigma that black business just don't offer the same quality service as their competitors. Hopefully this show will shed light on how we can make the black business support / experience much more enjoyable. Other races have support from their races, how great would it be to get that same love and support for our own. Call in at (347) 855-8637 to share an experience as a patron, business owner or share a positive review with a black business that you just recently visited. Let's start a riot!
