We've all discussed how we want to live in our very own communities and have the streets lined with Black-owned businesses. Life would be great if we could recreate Black Wall Street(s) all over the country and around the world, right?

While we've got a long road ahead of us to achieve that kind of self-sufficiency, these folks have gotten a really good start on showing us how to "do-for-self and kind."

The Chinese have Chinatown. Italians have Little Italy. Cubans have Little Havana. Why shouldn't we have an AfricaTown or Little Africa?

I have no problem with us having our own; I hold no such "colorblind" notions. However, I am concerned with the look of that group though. If they have a good working model, maybe it deserves a look, but the whole god incarnate thing is urksome. Allah is he?...smh.

I disagree with all of that
I may not disagree with the notion as long as it is not about the "They have it why not us?" argument. If it is done for reasons of actionary and not reactionary then cool. Niches are cool for what they are, and if that is what you are cool with as a business owner then more power to you.

I feel that all of these opinions are true, I am also self employed. As life teaches us that we are separate but equal, it leaves a heavy burden on ur youth. In my line of work cuacasion are more receptive to me than my own afro-american culture. My opinion in this topic is, we as the human race must learn how to coincide to rise above poverty! We must remember, progression can happen better if we stop feeding racism and classism.

I love self-sufficiency in all its forms and from whomever.
Adopt and adapt it to make it your own.

1619+400=2019 Jamestown Virginia...end of slavery. (Yes modern miseducation and injustices count as slavery) But no proper reparations will be given since the amount of contributions beyond humanity transcends generations. Our people have history that is equal to trillions of dollars including Melanin research and its supernatural power.
I want my people to be aware of this dilemma regarding the upcoming election... I know politics. Yes Trump is admitting the truth about Black People building this so called country corporation (The United States). But you must understand that what they're planning on doing is to divide and conquer. This is all just for him to get re-elected. He's going to promise reparations and reneg at the last minute.
