25 Black- Owned Restaurants In Queens New York

Big companies have a history of oppressing small businesses and putting a heavy burden on low-income communities. When you choose a Black-owned business over problematic companies, you vote with your dollar by divesting it from this kind of practice and holding companies accountable. And further down the road, you empower successful minority-owned businesses to implement equitable policies.

When small businesses flourish, so do their communities. But banks often hinder that prosperity by discriminating against African Americans and other entrepreneurs of color seeking small business loans. A 2017 study by the National Community Reinvestment Coalition found that banks were twice as likely to provide business loans to white applicants than Black ones and were three times more likely to have follow-up meetings with white applicants than more qualified Black ones. Many African American business owners fund their businesses due to the lack of capital mentioned earlier. What this means that most Black-owned companies are sole proprietorships that don’t make enough money to pay employees.

Now is the picture-perfect time to take on a project I’ve been thinking about for a long time. I started pinning the ongoing development of creating a list for black-owned Businesses. Black Lives Matter, Black Dollar matter Basic Human rights matter. You can educate yourself and, if you are white, talk to other white people about racial justice. One of the most immediate, sustainable ways to support the black community is to shop at black-owned businesses, many of which have also been disproportionally affected by the coronavirus pandemic.  I’ve created a list of over 25 black-owned businesses you can support below. I’m still in the lab working on providing you guys more black business you can support.
