OK, so you didn't really address my point though.I have NEVER sought out the race of a business I was involved with.You're right it's not fair. But I prefer this over government handouts to blacks. They still have to compete for your business.The GOVERNMENT here in KC is literally promoting apps that will direct you to ONLY black owned businesses. Now we have BOB, Black Owned Businesses.
When did this shit become acceptable again?
Can you imagine an app exclusively for white people and promoted by your local government?
Maybe I can promote my remodeling business based on my SKIN COLOR??? Nothing says qualification and quality like SKIN COLOR right?
I do agree with you on the part that government should not be promoting discrimination like this though. And I think you should be perfectly free to start a similar app for white businesses. Though I wouldn't use it personally.
What's wrong with the concept though is that black businesses in white areas are not disadvantaged, black businesses in poor black neighborhoods are because their customer base is disadvantaged. When you go to a black owned business in a suburban strip mall, they are no different than white owned businesses in the same location
The thought of seeking to do business solely based on skin color is a slap in the face to race relations and all the progress we've made over the years. We are only further dividing our population with this kind of bullshit.
We agreed government should not be allowed to discriminate at all.
I said I think apps by private companies for private citizens should of course be allowed. Government has no right to regulate that. They do, but it's not legitimate. I also said I'm with you that I'm not personally interested in discriminating either way.
So I agree government should not be involved in the discrimination, but is it your position that private citizens should not be allowed to do so?
