New Orleans Pelicans point guard/shooting guard, Jrue Holiday, shares the importance of supporting Black businesses in a tweet shared today by the Milwaukee Bucks.
Supporting Black businesses is extremely important within the Urban community.
Historically, Black businesses were often alienated by the masses. They were burned down, damaged in riots, and looted.
Even Black people, to this day, hold Black businesses to a higher standard than businesses owned by other races. And expect or request discounts they wouldn’t typically receive from business owners of other races.
