I dunno, maybe since I have been immersed in their culture, I get along with them well.

    Of all the Asian ethnicities, I find the Koreans to be the friendliest, most fun, and open to other races.

    But not the Japanese. Oh never the Japanese.
    In my limited experience I've found Korean people to not like black people.

    To be more than just bigoted but outright racist. I'm talking about the term as the definition states not what people usually say in emotional rants.

    My former boss usually ranked races as korean>white>spanish>black=chinese.

    I said generally. Of course there are extremists as there are in everything. But a much greater proportion of white pride organizations than ethnic pride organizations preach hate.

    That's not the same argument at all

    At this point I think anyone doing anything in a way that over emphasis skin color is a bigot whether their intentions are good are not.
    I don't agree with that. There are several black pride organizations at my school, and they are all positive. The people in those clubs celebrate their heritage in the same way that I celebrate the fact that I'm an American. Neither makes us bigots until. If those organizations started railing against whites they would be as bigoted as I would be if I began railing against Mexicans, but the fact that they celebrate their heritage does not automatically qualify them as bigots

    It's like Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing movie. I never understood that movie. I understand looking after your own as long as your own is really your own and not just a skin color affiliation. Driving miles and miles to patronize a black shop solely because you prefer to do business with dark skinned peoples is bigotry. It's nothing to be proud of no matter how you attempt to justify your actions.
    Can't say I've ever seen that movie

    If the folks in the OP said they go out of their way to try to uplift the black community by making sure to spend some money within it -fine. But to go so far as to say you will only do business with blacks....indefensible.
    If you avoid all non-black businesses chances are you are a racist, but preferring to buy black makes one no more of a bigot than preferring to buy American

    There is a difference between pride and prejudice.

    Pride is a cultural fair, a festival, a parade even.

    Prejudice is choosing to deliberately only do business with dark skinned folks.

    Re: A family's year of 'buying black'

    I do not see anything wrong with people looking after each other from a cultural aspect and maybe if the WHITE man had not did what they did? Maybe black folks would not see the need to "buy black"..

    Keep in mind it was not long ago that white men could buy black and it did not mean produce! White men could go sell and BUY Black people on a block. And you wanna get all mad cause black folks wish to support black biz? Give me a break!

    It's bigotry. If a white man told me he only wants to patronize white shops I'd think he was a major racist tard. When the black folks do it I think the same damn thing no matter how they attempt to pretty up their ultimate intent.

    TOTALLY ANALOGOUS.

    That is the dumbest thing I've read in a while.

    I think we have all just lost IQ points actually reading this.

    It's called racial bigotry and I'm glad to know you support it.

    Do you support business owners choosing who can and can not shop in their stores based on race?

    If you really think this, why haven't you found a black-owned politics discussion board and empowered them? I mean, it's about Damn time!

    Yep.

    Nothing racist in this post.

    Just the usual it's okay to be racist against white people alive today because white people five hundred years ago didn't meet the morality standards of today's reverse racists.

    So if a whole bunch of white people decide to shop at only white-owned businesses, you'll agree that it's empowerment and about damn time, right?
