There are many dynamics on why Blacks should own their own businesses.
why should you get a means of income after you rent an apt? why should you or anybody grow food? The reasons are simple. To live in a group, some things are required for the functionality of the group at the expense of the individual. If I was the only person on the planet, I would take what I needed since whatever I took could not belong to anyone else. But since I live among people, I have to modify my conduct. I should do some things and not do other things. It is said that one of the wonders of human intelligence is our ability to be aware of self and to be aware of "us. And, to be able to (thru considerable cerebral effort) juxtapose the two. Some don't or won't.
Some people care not for the "entity" that they are a part of. Those people simple want to live for today. Unwilling to commit to any "hi-level" thinking about things. For other people, like the Irish, the Germans, the Italians, the Jew, the idea of self and the self's role in shaping the "Us" is integrated into their being. Too Black folks do not have a sense of "Us". Only of "Me".
I would challenge you to read this
Somehow I doubt you will though

Well I am not young, and I don't know if you consider Guilford "urban"...but an investment firm downtown.
