200 Black-owned businesses to support in 2021

Andrew M. Santos

And Covid-19 isn’t helping anything: More than 40 percent of Black-owned businesses shut down by April of last year, compared with a 17 percent decline among white-owned businesses. And while around 75 percent of Black-owned small businesses saw upticks in the two months after George Floyd’s death and subsequent national attention to issues around discrimination and police brutality, sales at many Black-owned businesses soon after plummeted back to their pre-Covid-19 rates, according to a survey by the Black Chamber of Commerce. Even if you shelf the pandemic’s effect on Black-owned businesses, eight out of 10 fail within the first 18 months.

I believe in science. Just like Hillary Clinton, Ben Franklin and a billion other Americans. I don’t care whether it’s science fact or science fiction. I don’t care whether it’s Dr. Fauci or Dr. Frankenstein, Dr. Strange or Dr. Strangelove. I believe it all.

In these troubled times, it’s important to “follow the science,” even if we don’t know where it’s leading us. Should we be wearing one mask or two? Heck, I’ll wear 22. Is red meat good for us or bad? Science isn’t sure, so pass the hot wings.
