Trump’s tax plan may soun good to the one percent, but for the rest of us, it could  be catastrophic. So it’s important, now more than ever, to keep Black dollars in the Black community, as capital for those businesses is one of the hardest things to acquire.

“Nationwide there are more than 2.6 million black-owned businesses,” Black business owner Antwon Davis told NBC News. “But eight out of 10 fail within the first year and a half because of a lack of exposure, a lack of capital, and a lack of business acumen.”

If you are thinking of starting a Black-owned business in 2018, check out some important stats on Black businesses HERE.

Buying Black has also become somewhat of a rallying call for African-Americans after the polarizing campaign and election of Donald Trump widened the racial divide. “We have to keep these dollars in our community just a little bit longer,’’ Black Florida consumer Candy Lowe told USA Today. “If we can …   we’ll see an economic improvement. If we see more businesses getting support, it won’t be so frightening to be a business owner.’’

What better time than the present to start putting into practice what Lowe has proposed?

A Twitter hashtag for Black-owned businesses has gone viral, and more Black-owned deals  can be found by clicking here and here. Though some of these brands were listed as part of Cyber Monday sales, we’ll assume they’d like to make money year-round.

The Black Business News Blog lists 25 Black-owned businesses offering up their wares for sale, including everything from desserts and snacks to drinks to cosmetics to clothing and more.

The Black Girl With Long Hair website also listed more than 40 other Black companies that focus on cosmetics and fashion.

We loved this line – a custom, hand-knit scarf line by a brother from Brooklyn! This is a good time to order something warm, at least on the East Coast.

Love lingerie but don’t want to support Victoria’s Secret? Here’s a list of the ten Black-owned lingerie brands. 

Super Selected’s website provided a list of products made by 50 Black-owned companies.

  1. Black owned businesses should sell their products with Costbucket POS. It is the only black owned point of sale (POS) solution available that supports their sales, inventory and accounting process. See them at #costbucket

    Blaka Fashions has two logos, BlakaMale and BlakaFemale that are in the final approval stage through the USPTO to use in commerce in class 25 which is clothing, headgear, and foot gear. You can check my information out online Learn Earn Return BlakaMale, Learn Earn Return BlakaFemale. I am a retired army veteran served 24 years been retired 20
    years and is in the processing of retiring again from the mental health professional as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker turning 62. l don’t know a lot about business, but what I want to do is use my clothing brand to establish a scholarship fund to send a sister and brother to a HBCU free for 4 years as the company expand to support our HBCU and stop begging white people to send our children to college. We can start establishing companies that support our communities and our people. If Walt Disney can take a mouse and brand it into a multi-million industry then we should be able to brand BlakaMale and BlakaFemale because we will OWN IT.
