Don't Shop Where You're Not Respected!

Use Economic Sanctions To Fight New Yort City Racism

We can make a change in this city by
keeping our change on these days.

Frederick Douglass was right when he said:
" Who you give your money to,
is who you give your power to."

Who are we giving our power to?
Black consumers continue to out spend all other consumers. Last year Blacks spent $1.5 Billion more on shoes than we did the year before. $206 Million more on coffee. $691 Million in the super market. Last year Black youth, who are regularly accused of theft, actually spent $19 Billion dollars. In New York City, Black consumers spend over $60 Billion annually. Most of that money is being spent with people who seem to hold the Black community in contempt.
