Why aren't there any black businesses? I just got back from my barber shop and he's an Asian guy (he speaks Arabic) Everywhere i look all i see are Chinese, Indian,Thai, Asian e.t.c owned and run businesses. They get really rich because of it. Today i walked past their businesses and saw an E55 AMG, SL55 AMG and an Aston Martin DBS all parked outside. All races that i know of stick and help each other. E.g Chinese help Chinese, Indian help Indians e.t.c
Why can't black people do this and get their act together. There have been Caribbeans livivng her since the 50's and they've achieved NOTHING!
In the US it's slightly better as many rappers beciome rich but there still isn't any black solidarity whatsoever despite being there for the best part of 500 years.
WTF IS GOING ON??
Don't even dare call me a racist because i'm black and i'm in disbelief at what i see.

Have a look at this. It's a little bit long bt it's really clever and just absolutely BONE CHILLING!

Hmm, doing well financially and having solidarity are two different things.

I understand what you're saying to an extent,but to be fair,you live in Swansea. Your perception may be slightly bias.

In London,Luton,Bedford (all places I have lived) I have never seen or heard of a black barbers which wasn't owned by a black person :confused: There are also many African Caribbean restaurants owned by black people when you go to more urban areas.

Both my parents own their own successful businesses. My Dad also volunteers helping other black businesses push through as it a known fact that black businesses seem to have some sort of trouble when it comes to establishing themselves for many different reasons.

I think your perception is slightly warped though,perhaps this is because where you live? You're really making things sound much worse then they actually are. Black people have come a long way in Britain and I think its quite disgraceful that you're saying that your Grandparents,and other peoples Grandparents have achieved nothing. You really need to learn your history.

I live in South London and there are plenty of businesses owned by black people although it tends to just be a numerous barbers and hairdressers, but I'm sure that they are still profiting. And I don't live in Swansea, but I'm assuming there is a small black population, therefore it is less likely you'll see black people with businesses there right?

Because you live in Swansea. A city with barely any black people.

Okay,well there are many Caribbeans that came to England on The Windrush who have done great things for Britain. I know the majority of the older generation chose to invest their money back in the Caribbean. For example,my Grandparents worked over here,but invested in lots of land in Jamaica and are profiting in that way.
So where did you originally move from?

Erm okay :confused:

Well I don't know much about when/how/why Africans came to Britain,but there are many black businesses around,especially African owned. You definitely need to open your eyes more and travel around.

To a certain extent I agree OP, but, in East London we have a fair amount of black barbers and Caribbean/African restaurants. I do agree though that there are very few black businesses compared to Asian ones.

What I've always wondered is why are the owners of Afro/Caribbean hair shops always Asian?? It's always confused me. I'm not complaining though!

There's a Caribbean bloke who owns a shop near to where I live. I bought some Bigga off of him the other day, proper tasty drink. We've started going in there to get our munch instead of going to Co-op :ahee:

I really don't see how them helping each other means they're going to get rich... surely it just means more competition?

Apparently that was what was really behind the race riots between blacks and asians in Birmingham 2005 in lozells.

I guess if black people aren't willing to utilise the market then someone else will.

We can't really complain!
