A family's year of 'buying black' - Los Angeles Times
Reporting from Chicago -- Maggie Anderson drives 14 miles to buy groceries, which might seem curious given that she lives in bustling Oak Park, Ill. She and her husband, John, travel 18 miles to a health food store in Chicago for vitamins, supplements and personal care products. They drive some distance for gasoline too.
The reason? They want to help solve what they call "the crisis in the black community." They want to buy black."Supporting your own isn't necessarily exclusive," said John Anderson, a financial advisor who grew up in Detroit and has a Harvard degree in economics and an MBA from Northwestern, "and you're not going to convince everybody of that."I think these people are complete morons."We, as African Americans, support everyone," he said. "The ebony experiment is saying, 'Listen, let's pay attention to us. Let's give some support.' Ebony experiment can bring awareness, and in that awareness comes better profits and better services and better opportunities. It just grows from there."
It's always pointed out when "whites" are being racially discriminatory but it is more rampant in ethnic communities in my opinion.
So when will black people and other ethnic groups stop being so racially discriminating?
