    I have no problem with them doing it. They're free to do so in a capitalist society.

    I think its moronic and racist for them to be doing this, be it to put "money in the black mans hands" or to "take money out of the white man's hands". Either way, they're doing the action based on nothing but the color of someones skin. Its stupid **** like this that makes me care a great deal less about the claims of wanting "equality" and that whites need to "Do more" to make us all the way and stop with the racial divide.

    Genius thought here. Want to try and stop the racial divide? How about stop RACIAL DIVIDING.

    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?
    Did you have anything to add to this or you just wanna attack me for keeping it real?

    Keeping it real I suppose is what is at the core of the issue. Which is that people of color still have a chip on their shoulder about **** that didn't even happen to them specifically.

    I don't support racial bigotry in any form so I get a bit pissed when people like your self make excuses for it.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    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.
    I do not support racism in any shape or form. But I just cannot get into feeling all bad for the white man!! Cry me a frigging river for the White Man that still run things in this country.. Waaaa.. I want my bottle! Give me a break!

    LOL... was thinking along similar lines.
    Those were long hauls.
    Doesn't quite square themselves with the Jolly Green Giant wing of their party.
    I guess the “We can’t drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times … and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK,” is... ahhh nevermind.
    “That’s not leadership. That’s not going to happen,” Obama added.

    Wouldn't a good journalist ask about the contradiction of their ways?
    It'd be amongst the first questions I'd ask.

    What happens when the ebony Americans forget milk?

    The Ebony Experiment I'd like to see would involve the ideas, influence and eventually acceptance of ideas from the likes of Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, Rev. Petersen, Larry Elder and Justice Thomas.

    if you drive 20 miles to a black owned store because they sell a item you want ... thats one thing. But if you do it because they are a black owned store its bigotry.

    Funny how bigotry is ok, as long as your not white.

    No one is disputing that local ethnic markets are fine. I find all sorts of unsual things at my local asian market that you can't find in my local store .. and thats great.
    George W. Bush is a liberal.
