This post will be quick and to the point. Black people, let's get it together and invest in our future. Whether it's time and money, you need to always consider how you can pay it forward.

I don't want to come down too hard on the first reviewer because they are trying to support black businesses; however, we must advance our mentality to consider that a few minutes of time could potentially help thousands of others.
