Sweet. I was looking for cards with black themes, and I found this site, which is black owned and operated. It's always good to be able to support your community. If a woman or a man is able to create wealth through their business, not only may they actually hire a young person from the neighborhood, they also serve as a good role model for kids. Hallmark is good and all, but is Hallmark going to care about pulling up roots and leaving people's jobless or whether our neighborhoods are presentable?

Another good point of buying from small businesses is that many of the business owners may be women trying to be able to stay at home with their kids. Support them, and their kids get more quality time. I'm merely a poor college student, but the extra money from my business is pretty helpful for school expenses.

Also, a forum for blacks in business. In addition, here is a mailing list for minority entrepreneurs.
