It really upsets me when I read stories like this where we as Black consumers are treated like second-class citizens. Usually, our money is wanted, just not our actual PRESENCE!
Well apparently, in Miami, our money isn't good enough either! From hotels, to restaurants to parking garages and retail stores, Black patrons are finding themselves feeling like they stepped into the "Twilight Zone", or perhaps, the "Jim Crow" zone.
While we can all agree that this treatment is not only unacceptable in 2017 and quite infuriating, the question remains: When will we get tired of spending where we are not respected?
Listen, I get it, Miami is beautiful. It's a paradise. But how much fun can you actually have vacationing somewhere that you're completely uncomfortable in? How can you spend your hard earned money in venues and stores where you are thought of as "not worthy?"
The truth is, we do it daily! There are businesses out here who take money from Black consumers and could care LESS about US. I long for the day when we as an intelligent, power-holding people can put our internal differences aside, come together and began building up our communities, incorporating our own banks and businesses on a larger scale and put our money where it belongs and will actually work for US!
