A study commissioned by Groupon and the National Black Chamber of Commerce found that 59 percent of Black business owners reported being victims of racism or bias when starting their business. The disparity continued during the COVID-19 pandemic. The New York Times reported that Black business owners had a harder time finding lenders who would work with them for the Paycheck Protection Program than white business owners. And then there’s the racial wealth gap. A 2021 Duke research paper found the typical Black household holds about 12 cents for every dollar of wealth that the typical white family holds. For these reasons, you may be motivated to take action and support Black-owed businesses. Not only will you be a force for economic good, but it can be a way to celebrate and continue Black culture. Bolstering sales can help prove to lenders that the company has intrinsic worth. And by becoming a regular shopper, you increase the company’s visibility and representation.

MerchantMaverick.com’s “Top States for Black-Owned Businesses in 2022” report found the pandemic had created opportunities for Black entrepreneurs, particularly in Mid-Atlantic and Southern states: Virginia, Maryland and Delaware ranking in the top five states for Black entrepreneurs. All have a sizable Black populations, and local government and private initiatives to foster Black-owned businesses. Southern states also dominated the top 10.
