With all the recent shootings going on, many artists and activists have spoken on ways African American's can fight back in a non violent manner. Rapper Killer Mike spoke at a MTV town hall meeting and encouraged African American's to switch over to black owned banks only, calling it "Bank Black". Five days after the meeting Atlanta based Citizens Trust Bank gained over 8,000 new customers who opened up accounts with them. The idea of "Bank Black" is to invest in black owned banks which will give more opportunities to African Americans. Killer Mike wants 1 million people to open up accounts with $100+ in black owned banks.
