All while Black men continue wandering off to do whatever they want to do, without considering how their choices affect the so-called community. As was mentioned during the Who Else Wants An Optimal Lifestyle?

post: There won’t be any collective solution to what has been called “Black Marital Mogadishu” in the United States because 50% of the participants needed for any Black marriage—Black men—benefit from the current absence of marriage among African-Americans.

I’m concerned because I see some flawed assumptions in peoples’ business strategies.

Flawed assumptions that can unnecessarily cause you to lose every penny that you’re investing into your business.

It makes many African-Americans feel “free” to have their money accepted by non-Black others.

They don’t get any emotional satisfaction from patronizing their own people’s businesses. I firmly believe that both of these types of conversations are fundamentally dishonest. In the business context, I believe that this false premise is about denial (of how slave-minded most of us are), and wishful thinking about the true nature and motivations of African-American consumers. Black men will happily marry NON-Black women that have all the traits that they claim to find so off-putting about many Black women: obesity, difficult personalities, and so on.

Look around at the wreckage of most businesses that tried to do business in Black residential areas as Black-owned businesses. There are reasons there are few visibly Black-owned and operated businesses within the African-American collective.

You’re not the first aspiring Black business owner who daydreamed of serving Black consumers. The primary reason is that African-American consumers don’t want to see visibly Black-owned businesses succeed.Most African-American consumers don’t care about quality, customer service, or anything else.Those are just the excuses they give for not supporting Black-owned businesses. Other motivations form the backdrop of their buying decisions.Don’t be deceived by the many, many lies African-American consumers tell about their motivations. Look at African-American consumers’ collective actions. The harsh reality is that African-American consumer decisions are not motivated by considerations of quality or customer service.If African-American consumers cared about quality or service, then they would not be jam-packed in the filthy, rude Arab and Korean-owned stores that exist within Black residential areas.Masses of Black women could twist themselves into pretzels physically, emotionally, and spiritually to try to cater to African-American males, and the bulk of these males still would not marry a Black woman.
