Before a national chain or retailer decides to move into a community a lot of research and homework about that particular community goes into work in order for them to make their final decision to move in or not. Speedy Cash a title loan company has decided to move into the community of Chatham, in Chicago, Illinois on the corner of 87th and Cottage Grove. Speedy Cash did a very thorough analysis before moving in based on their marketing research. The research team considered the demographics, race, age, annual household income and level of education within the community. Speedy Cash decided that there was a great need for blacks in our community to have access and availability to “Speedy Cash” whenever desired. The underline assumption may have been the blacks don’t managed their money well, speed money on impulse, live beyond their means, don’t invest and plan properly, and don’t use banks in order to secure safe low interest loans. And as a result, these title loan companies, like Speedy Cash, feed and prey on the desperation of individuals who lack financial and economic resources to make wise financial decisions. It is quite interesting that Speedy Cash has decided to move in our community once they started see how the community has changed based on the census report. Please consider the facts; companies like Speedy Cash don’t come into black communities to help stabilize, uplift and empower people. Title Loan companies main objective is to make MONEY at the expense of black people. These title companies trap most blacks with the illusion that it’s more important to maintain their image rather than face their reality. The Speedy Cash research and marketing team know about the many problems blacks face today like, material poverty, illiteracy and dysfunctional families.

“They were stolen from their homes, locked in chains and taken across an ocean. And for more than 200 years, their blood and sweat would help to build the richest and most powerful nation the world has ever known. But when slavery ended, their welcome was over. America’s wealthy elite had decided it was time for them to disappear and they were not particular about how it might be done. What you are about to see is that the plan these people set in motion 150 years ago is being carried out today. So don’t think that this is history. It is not.
