Blacks who want to do business with blacks only are just great

We read:
"Consumers worldwide might be tightening their belts, but Maggie Anderson's mind is black with plots to spend. Her Oak Park family is publicly committing to a year of buying from black-owned business and supporting black professionals exclusively, starting Jan. 1. These days, she's searching frantically for black-owned firms for staple items and services, until she and her husband, John, can broaden their awareness of businesses and professionals. That means she's got to find a new dry cleaner. She's looking for a place to gas up the family's two cars. And locating black McDonald's franchises is a must. "My girls love the fries," she said of her two daughters. Her family's efforts will be followed by a team of college researchers as part of a project called the Ebony Experiment to determine the impact of the Andersons' spending if extrapolated to a larger portion of black America.

So I guess it is also great for whites to decide that they will only do business with whites? Any white who said so would be in big trouble.

These days, she's searching frantically for white-owned firms for staple items and services, until she and her husband, Todd, can broaden their awareness of businesses and professionals."

If that was printed, a hail-storm of fury would be unleashed.

I wish her luck in her endeavor. Of course I have no idea who owns the gas stations I frequent or the fast food restuarants. I assume they are members of some ethnic minority such as Hindu as so many of them seem to be owned by them in our area.

I try to stay away from black businesses. Around here they are usually (very, very few exceptions) filthy, poor service and dangerous to be around.

Sure it, even if saying so would get you in big trouble. As for me, I care little, if at all, who owns a business. Being able to get what I want with courteous service matters MUCH more. To each his own.
