Seattle, WA, February 09, 2021 --(PR.com
)-- Black Americans earn only 61 percent of white American incomes. Their salaries are significantly less to whites performing same jobs, yet we prefer to maintain our "good jobs" rather than own and operate our own business. There is a considerable disparity between opportunities and wealth for Black families and White families. According to the Federal Reserve, in "2019, White families had the highest median household wealth of any racial group at $188,200; Black Americans had the lowest median household wealth at $24,100," (Lewis, 2021). What gives?
Black Americans must strive for "Ujamaa" and social entrepreneurship to create businesses oriented around providing services and goods that benefit the Black community. They are one of the U.S.' biggest consumers, but only spend a mere “3 percent of our $600 billion on Black-Owned businesses” (Tucker, 2017). This must change.
For University of Washington Graduate student and NoirePack Inc. founder Edward McFields, "Ujamaa" was his calling in the coffee marketplace. Coffee presented an excellent opportunity for his business startup NoirePack Inc.
With “32 percent of African Americans in the United States drinking gourmet coffee beverages during the past day” (Conway, 2020) why not create businesses that revolves around this popular commodity?
Whether it be gourmet or non-gourmet, traditional coffee is the most popular option among Americans for their past-day consumption.
