Black History: Ever Growing
Although it may sound good to support corporations that claim to donate towards Black causes, especially during February, I'd like to bring more attention to how these big box stores don't really do the work needed.
I can name at least 20 Black folks right now that could use immediate financial relief in one way or another. What do this massive corps do instead? Donate extravagant amounts of money to non-profit orgs so that they can write it off during tax time. It's nothing more than empty platitudes to secure Black dollars without giving anything useful to our communities.
Be mindful of where your dollars are going. For every major corp, there's at least 5 small Black businesses making products or services in those same categories and I can almost certainly tell you that the quality is 100 times better and made with more attention and care.
