With one easy stroll through any black community in America, you can effortlessly spot nail salons from corner to corner. It’s no surprise to many of us that most of these nail salons are owned by individuals who live outside of urban communities. These owners are predominately Korean-Americans.
And we love them, don’t we? Most Black women can’t get enough of their cheap prices for manicures, pedicures, full-sets, fill-ins and maybe even an eyebrow arch.
But not so far down the block, there is that lone nail salon owned by a Black woman. Often just a few dollars more expensive, most Black-owned nail salons offer added services like massages, hand wraps, versatile nail polish selections and swanky digs. And…. they are black! Yes, let’s be real in order to get our economic foundation together, we must seek out each other , for NO other reason than the color of our skin! Say what you want, but no one else is going to look out for US, BUT US!
Your challenge this month, during #nationalblackbusinessmonth is to patronize our/your people.
