"We don't have to argue with anybody. We don't have to curse and go around acting bad with our words. We don't need any bricks and bottles. We don't need any Molotov cocktails. We just need to go around to these stores, and to these massive industries in our country, and say, 'God sent us by here, to say to you that you're not treating his children right. And we've come by here to ask you to make the first item on your agenda fair treatment, where God's children are concerned. Now, if you are not prepared to do that, we do have an agenda that we must follow. And our agenda calls for withdrawing economic support from you.'"

-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

It's important to economically support companies that support us. This is an incomplete list of companies that are Black-Owned (B), Black Allies (b), and/or LGBT+ (+) Allies. I do not receive compensation for listing or referrals. I choose not to support bigot chicken sandwiches, bigot wedding cakes, bigot gasoline for the car,  bigot electricity for the house, bigot bread, bigot banks, or any other bigot businesses. I work hard for my money, and I won't allow my dollars to be used by a bigot company to support hate. For an updated list of LGBT+ Ally businesses, Google "The Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index." It updates frequently, so I won't link it here.
