We wonder why black businesses have a hard time keeping their doors open. We tend to blame every other race, the government and the list goes on, but there is a separation happening amongst us. If we were to commit to supporting one another then maybe we can keep those trillions of dollars cycling within our families and communities. But that would mean we would have to stop viewing each other as competition and rid ourselves of jealousy. Our own jealousies, competitiveness, unwillingness to support one another and pettiness with other black people is what’s keeping us from moving forward.
