BlackEnterprise.com Editor-in-Chief Alfred A. Edmond, Jr. delivers hard-hitting commentary on the practice of many blacks who want black businesses and professionals to provide free goods and services in Why I Hate The Hook-Up. Please read it in its entirety. Here's an excerpt:
"...No, they can't wash your car, pull your teeth, do your hair, fix your computer, edit your manuscript, paint your house, build your web site, etc. for free! Discount? Maybe. Complimentary services for referring new—paying—customers? Okay. An occasional freebie for long-time, loyal customers who always pay? Sure. Barter my goods or services for yours? We might be able to work something out. But, FREE? NO!"
