    I have a real question tho...

    back in the day it was easy to boycott businesses that don't have your peoples best interests in mind and let them feel the burn of not getting black dollars... my question is... how do we adapt that strategy???

    I watched yesterday and I saw commercials for T-Mobile, headache medicine, insurance companies, beers... how the fuck do we navigate the terrain where you boycott one company thats owned by another company that supports the very same fuckery.

    Hate to say it but I don't see muhfuckas on some "yeah... t-mobile is one of the NFL's biggest sponsors.. fuck them ima switch carriers!... I aint buying Excedrin no more... and fuck this noise... I'm switching my car insurance... and while i'm at it... I aint drinking this shitty beer anymore either!"

    Seems like there's something else you'd like to say. Cut to the chase. What's your point?

    As far as certain main utilities are concerned, phones, gas, electricity etc it's difficult to boycott as many of these are necessities. However, alcohol clothing, even certain brands of cars can be boycotted. I simply say research the company you are doing business with and make sure that their public stance aligns with yours.

    Not really....I was just trying to figure out how folks could adapt accordingly on the boycott tip...

    Ur absolutely right about main utilities being difficult... I was just looking for realistic solutions on how to effectively boycott while navigating companies owned by companies owned by companies.. It's so convoluted some folks might actively be boycotting while still patronizing the parent company without knowing it.

    The "making a statement" is all well and good... Taking a stance is good.. but like it's been said in this thread countless times....the only language these folks understand is when you hit they pockets... I'm just trying to see what's the best way to do so

    I don't think they understand that either. There are many business that do not value the Black dollar. That's why advertisement and marketing is still overwhelming geared to toward whites.

    It doesn't matter what they understand. Blacks need to understand that whites as a whole are not our friends, adopting their culture and mores is toxic. We need to stand on our own, have some morals and pride in our own. We can stand in solidarity with whites who are willing to tell the truth about white supremacy and make an effort to show they genuinely support Black interests\issues.

    You and I are in agreement for the most part.. which is why I was trying to get a better understanding of these businesses we all patronize.

    A brotha/sista could be on some.. Yeah we boycotting all this surface shit.. not watching a football game or buying their shit is cool... but not realizing the advil we buy... the liquor we buy.. the cell phone bill we pay... the clothes we buy.. fuck... the toilet paper we buy is made by folks that are actively plotting against our best interests..

    I was just trying to open a dialogue about how to appropriately navigate these waters is all.. Not a simple thing I know.. but I think it warrants discussion

    You have to realize most people not willing to sacrifice for the change that they will tell you they are seeking.

    I realize this.. I'm just trying to adapt a strategy for those that are willing....
