Ujamaa Deals

@ujamaadeals - Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics): To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them together.

Daily discounts from Black-owned companies

It's simple.  Black unemployment is at least 2x the national level (the official estimate is  about 16.7%, but the real rate is closer to 30%).  Black-owned businesses are 85% more likely to hire Black employees than non-Black-owned businesses.  So the most efficient use of our consumer dollars to increase Black employment and decrease the wealth gap is to support Black-owned businesses.
