With just $0.05 a day, this Blueprint will make us strong, firm warriors in the battle to end poverty-->

Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Black Small Business Owners Get Left Out Of Loans

Before the recession, black-owned small businesses received 8.2
percent of all loan money through the Small Business  Administration (SBA). That figure is now down to 1.7 percent,
according to an analysis by the Wall Street Journal. The total volume of loans they are currently getting is similarly low: 2.3 percent of the roughly 54,000 doled out through the agency, down from 11 percent in 2008.

Other groups have fared better. Hispanic business owners are  getting 4.7 percent of total loan volume, similar to the 4.5 percent rate they saw in 2009. About 7 percent of American business owners are black, compared to 10 percent that are Hispanic.   | ThinkProgress
