In the Frederick Douglass Black Fist Blm Shirt and by the same token and past two weeks, since the George Floyd killing and the ensuing protests, Santos said she had made roughly $800,000 in sales. Why the spike in sales, which she says is coming from both Black and white customers, many of them new to the store? “People want to learn about racism and anti-racism,” she said. “They want to uplift the Black economy. There’s a new awareness of systemic racism. And there’s white guilt.” Added Santos, “Awareness and guilt. These issues have been facing us for so long. Now white people have to be aware and sit in their discomfort watching what is happening.”
