Well. Let's whisper that. Wouldn't want anyone to think we are radical… too Black.

Nearly 99 percent of all white Americans live in all-white communities, work in all-white offices, conduct business with white customers, and send their children to all-white schools, according to Dr. Claud Anderson, in the book Powernomics. In this post-integration era, the Black consumer, regardless of social class, is the target for all immigrant groups. It is common knowledge: We will buy from anyone, with few exceptions. Will Black businesses ever restore the greatness of "The Black Wall Street"? I often hear the comparison: Blacks should be more like the Jews, Mexicans, Hmong, Chinese, and Arabs. If we do start to be more like those groups, they will be putting a sign on their businesses - GOING OUT OF BUSINESS.

Say it Loud, I'm Black and I'm Proud!.
