Labor Day Thoughts...

Labor Day Musings...

It never fails...

Everytime Black folks try to do something for ourselves, SOMEBODY has to talk junk about it.

Many people in town think that local Black leaders asking The Black Community to "Buy Black" is being racist.

It's not.

NOONE called for a BOYCOTT of non-Black businesses!

This is how ignorance is spread. Local leaders simply wanted Black folks to spend money "within The Black Community," FOR A CHANGE!!

Everytime someone ask me, "Why don't Blacks try to help themselves?", I tell them that "There are a great many people who spread rumors and lies and get 'in our way' to hinder this."

There are 365.24 days in a year, but people are threatened when Blacks are asked to spend ONE FREAKIN' DAY supporting Black businesses!

Hell, Wal-Mart isn't going anywhere!

To the Local Black Leaders:

I've critized y'all (rightfully, of course) for a minute now, so it's time for me to say alittle something...

While I applaud your intentions, I critize your execution of said statement.


Because you should have created a list of Black businesses where we should shop for the day.

Many of the businesses that are in Black neighborhoods ARE NOT BLACK and DON'T RESPECT THE BLACK COMMUNITY THAT THEY ARE IN!

Don't ask Blacks to support Black business without a comprehensive list of where we should go!

If you had a Black Supermarket we could go to for steaks and such on a day like this would be nice. As far as I know, there isn't one in Greensboro. The only one that comes close to being "Black-owned" is the Compare store on the corner of Summit Ave. & E. Bessemer, but the owners are Black Dominicans and consider themselves Hispanic instead of Black!

And I've stated many times before, I'm not into marching, so I'll be at the house grilling.

And for all of those people that think it's bad or racist or evil that Blacks help Blacks or for Blacks to spend money with Blacks FOR ONE FREAKIN' DAY OUT OF A 365.24 DAY YEAR...

The proper phrase is "buy black", not "by black".
