The New Black Wall Street

To all my fellow African American brothers and sisters, 

With all that's going on in this country, it's quite evident that WE need our own.  In 1921, Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Greenwood District, known as Black Wall Street, was one of the most prosperous African-American communities in the United States. But on May 31 of that year,  whites bombed the very affluent community which included 600 businesses, 21 churches, 21 restaurants,  30 grocery stores, 2 movie theaters, 6 private airplanes, 1 hospital, 1 bank and its own school system. Thirty-five city blocks went up in flames, 300 people died, and 800 were injured. 

There is a WHOLE TOWN in Georgia that is currently up for sale for $2.3 million. The goal is $2.6 million to offset the fees GoFundMe charges ($.30 per donation plus 2.9%).  The town includes 36 properties, an opera house, and a bank.  This is the same price of a luxury New York City apartment, just to put it into perspective.  For more info you can go to toomsboroforsale.com. 

There will be a mass showing of the property on 6/15/2020. We need to do this in 5 days and bring a cash offer that will supersede any financed offer. WE CAN DO THIS!

It's time we get back to circulating the black dollar in our communities, creating jobs for our own. That way, we could hire our brothers and sisters that have so much trouble getting jobs. As of 2018, WE spend $1.8 trillion a year ***EYES WIDE OPEN*** $1.8 TRILLION PER YEAR.  Do you know what we could do with that money if we kept it in our own communities?

If you contribute, please share on all of your social media platforms so we can try to reach this goal and start the NEW BLACK WALL ST.
