FUBU | Black Owned | 2019
Businesses created by Black and Brown people stem from the deep roots of our passions. It may have take years to be realized; years to take the leap; the next step to completion; yet we do it.
The service or the product established is because we see a need to be addressed. We conquer our fear(s) and ignore the naysayers. We look past the doubts of close family and friends. We go against the grain and take the road less traveled.
For most of us growing up, our path was already paved. College was the route we had to choose. Graduate and obtain the corporate job (or now days non-profits or schools functioning like corporate companies). The American Dream is our goal. Yet we knew the American Dream was not set up with ‘Us” in mind.
Now that we’re creating our own streams of income, it exposes our resilience. It exposes our purpose. We did it for the money, yes. However, more importantly we did it to share the gift God gave us with the world.
If you are for Us, Buy From Us.
If you believe in Us, promote Us.
There is a product or service out there created with you in mind. We challenge you to buy Black this month and beyond.

I am going to post your website link to an event I created on Facebook and Twitter called #BlackUpDay on June 19th. It is a day to show support for the black community financially. Feel free to promote the event using the hashtag #BlackUpDay to add to an ongoing list of black-owned businesses or organizations. I am not black, so I am not including my website in the info template below. This isn’t about me. It’s about doing something positive to enhance others’ lives with as much nationwide support as I can find.
