New Blogger Upon applying for the Blogger position with We Buy Black, I was elated to hear from our Editor shortly after. After a short phone interview, our editor offered me a Blogger position. You can imagine how excited I was to be Blogging for such a prominent company. I just had to tell somebody. I spoke with someone recently and this person asked me what had I been up to. With a sense of pride, I told them that they were looking at We Buy Black’s newest Blogger. They had never heard of this company, so I explained to them what the company’s mission is. But once I told them, this person asked me why would I want to work for a company like this. I didn’t understand their question. They elaborated. They asked me why would I want to work for a company that promotes division between the Black community and the rest of the world. “It just seems militant,” they said. I laughed at their statement for a couple of reasons: 1.) I had found myself in a similar conversation some time prior — before I was even Blogging — in regards to We Buy Black’s mission, and because 2.) this person didn’t know what they were talking about. There is an entire history of Black wealth that some Black people don’t even know about, so naturally, most non-Black people aren’t going to know about our history either. The history of our wealth is so expansive that it would take some time to cover. But this is the gist; We Buy Black aims to reclaim a portion of the wealth that was stolen from our people centuries ago.
