Want to Find a Black-Owned Business? There’s An App for That


There are an estimated 1.9 million Black-owned businesses in the United States and now you can find them easier with a new Smartphone application.

The application, created from a partnership with the U.S. Black Chambers and Around the Way®, uses the GPS feature of your phone to find Black-owned businesses.  This is a welcome treat for those who understand the value of supporting black-owned businesses as one of the tools to reducing black unemployment in America.

Ron Busby Sr., President of the U.S. Black Chambers, said that they created this new application in part to build a database of African-American businesses around the country.

    This one doesn’t apply when conversing to a possible date on line but
    it really could be preferable to get these
    issues fixed before meeting in the flesh. We STAY in a healthy,
    compatible relationship for other reasons but the reason why we even look
    twice at someone “in the crowd” has to do with their physical characteristics and how they stack up to our preferences in
    that department. According to “Sweet Revenge,”
    Carta and Hussainy also allegedly had ongoing affairs with Cowell when he was still living with “Extra”
    correspondent Terri Seymour, whom he dated from 2002
    to 2008.

    I wonder does Woodi Holmes of Black Refer have a hand in this new app?

    Considering all the hard work that Mr. Holmes has contributed in identifying black owned businesses across America one would find it somewhat unusual that he would not at least be consulted to some degree for his expertise in the discipline.
