Malcolm X says that building black business protects from racism

Post By RelatedRelated Post

In this speech, Malcolm X talks about black business. Malcolm says that black children must be taught the importance of supporting black business.   He also says that black people must be taught about the importance of going into business for themselves.

By opening businesses of our own, Malcolm reminds black people that we would then have the ability to create employment for ourselves. He says that once you can create employment in the place where you live, you don’t have to spend your time begging others to give you a job.

“Any time you have to rely upon your enemy for a job, you’re in bad shape,” Malcolm says.

So, the operative question is this: Are black people hearing this message or are we falling for the temptation to think that working for a white person is the key to our economic salvation? If you go to work for a white person and that person discriminates against you, did you do everything in your power to protect yourself from discrimination?

Let’s see things for what they really are.  It’s difficult to go work for someone else and expect to be able to modify the environment within which you’re working. They make the rules, it’s their show.  So, for anyone to believe that they can obtain the same freedoms by working for another person that they can have by working for themselves might be considered delusional.

But entrepreneurship is not a strong part of black culture.  It might be time to bring that back.

It’s going to start by what we teach our children.

Malcolm has something to say about this. Watch the video below and give us your thoughts. What’s it going to take to convince black people and black youth to support black businesses?
