Solange, singer/songwriter, and rapper Killer Mike are just two celebrity names influencing the country to transfer their funds to black owned banks. Specifically Citizens Trust Bank in Atlanta ,winning over 8,000 customers in a week with the help of Killer Mike. He was thanked by Citizens Trust CEO for the movement that he started with an interview on Atlanta hiphop station Hot 107.9. There, is where Killer Mike began to elaborate on the way large corporations choose not to speak out in support of the black community so he feels the community shouldn’t give their money until that support exists.

Look at Detroit, where a group of friends linked up via social media,now calling themselves “Operation Peace” (Promoting Equality And Change Everywhere), to create a Black Friday movement that peacefully supports the community. Operation Peace, started in lieu of recent murders of innocent black men in the USA, now influencing their town to bank black as well. This past Friday the group took to social media once again to encourage the citizens of Detroit to bank with Liberty Bank. Are you banking black or nah? Offer your opinion on Twitter and Instagram @skaii_boxx
