Couple's "Buy Black" Experiment Becomes Movement | NewsOne
i think this type of movement divides us, along racial lines, rather than uniting us as a people
now, other things being equal, if given the choice between a minority owned business and a majority owned company, i will go with the minority owned establishment ... but then i tend to support the (presumed) underdog
i remember the days of seperate but equal. where the black businesses - serving the black community - thrived
but i also remember that was a time when the black public was not welcome shopping in the white establishments
i think this takes us backwards, where some of us have once been
i don't want to go back to that place
400 years and no Walgreens might be related to 400 years and no Black Spelling Bee champ. American Blacks hate education and smart people (Jews, Asians)
No different than the German "Buy Caucasian" scheme back in the early days of nazi'ism.
Lord fucking knows that a 20% sample of the population doesn't REALLY want to rock a boat when it comes to commerce. Hell, how much of an economic impact can ghettos REALLY make?
Blacks are nazi's.
so instead of buying from a larger company or corporation they are buying and supporting local businesses and people who are not always thriving anymore is a bad thing?
We have a buy Local campaign here, I guess that is dividing us also.
If that larger company or corporation was owned by blacks , then blacks would buy from them.
is it dividing you along racial lines?
no they're not. But both groups have plenty of confused assholes.
We all know what we'd label someone shouting out to only buy from whites.. it's unfortunate that the OP doesn't have a broader perspective on this.
I live in a mostly white city with little amount 0f businesses owned by minorities. The people who started this movement live in a similar community and travel to poorer neighborhoods where their is more black people and less capitol to support their local businesses.
YOu guys bitch about afirmative action but when they do something to help themselves get ahead on their own you bitch also.
Immigrant populations due the same sort thing in larger cities, it is what keeps their businesses going. I would rather them buy from a black family who is stuggling to make their mortgage than a corporation that buys all their products from China.
