Conscious- Buying Black

It’s crazy how much buying power blacks have.. And the same companies that we spend our money on never give back to the community.. This year I will try my best to buy black.. my money is valuable.. I will not continue to give my money to corporations where I don’t see some one that looks like me in higher management or on the board. I will not buy from clothing stores that will except my money but follow me around and think I’m stealing because my skin is dark.. It’s time to wake up.. My black is beautiful.. My Black is powerful.. My Black wealthy.  Lets see how this goes.. I will document along the way..
I will make no apologies either..



Does it take money to date?

So I’ve been dating for the pass few months, most of them have been hits, some are total miss. Most of the time I attract guys who are the old school type, that like to pay for everything, which I’m cool with, but I also like to pay to give it some balance.

I’ve notice that once you are interested in that person you want to spend more time with them, and that can become costly. Lets take a look at it. If we go out three times a week, rather is just dinner, movies or a concert, that can be a small car note.

My question is does it take money to date? I personally think it doesn’t take a bunch.. but it take some.. even if it covers gas.. But other than that no. If you have an imagination and resourceful You can pocket that cash and save it for a trip.

Here are a few date that don’t cost any money and could actually help you get to know that person better:

  1. Trip to the library: A trip to the library will help you find out what type of literature your date is into. I love reading, and if my date is an avid reader like I am, his reading interest may be a great conversation starter.
  2. Check out the local Saturday market: This is one of my faves. On Saturday morning there is a community market that has an array of activities available, that’s all free. You can check out the locally grown fruit and veggie, while getting to know what your date like and dislike(you may get hints on favorite meals etc). You can also try bake goods while walking and talking.
  3. late night walk on the beach: this by far is my favorite. Usually the beach houses novelty stores, bars and cool little activities that are mostly free.  Water puts me at ease and makes me totally relaxed, so that will make the conversation flow.
  4.  Check out this video where  Male Translation podcast talks about dating with out using money, and let me know your thoughts.
