This is racism. Imagine the outrage if a group formed to buy only from white-owned businesses.

So they limited themselves to stores owned by a group that makes up less than 1/5 of the US population, and they're surprised it's hard?

Great points.

I guess I find it sad that people are so obsessed with skin color rather than competence. The only thing I care about is whether or not you are an idiot.

Being that the unemployment rates among blacks are almost doubled the rates of whites, I believe it is important that blacks promote and support black own businesses. It is a matter of survival.

Reverse racism. For all this kind of stuff, just substitute the words white/black.

There is no doubt that African Americans have been dealt a weak hand in America, but those days are long gone (thankfully).

The only "racism" in my mind now is like Ian Random said -- competence. And, I won't stand for reverse racism.

This is little different than those who advocate buy USA. Just as we shouldn't buy from those based on shared skin color neither should we because of a common passport.
