Blackout Day

Post by Nicholas »

But why confine this to one day a year, just boycott all non-black owned businesses always?

Sure to produce more harmony and brotherhood in USA. :(

Desperate time requires desperate measures.
The boycott started in India against British control of Indian salt supply and to protect the Indian cotton Industry.
I am not sure this will work in the US.
How many blacks own businesses? Many black people are working for white-owned businesses.
It is not possible to say whether goods are produced by black or white.
I think this is more of a token gesture.

Greetings,

I remember this one... it's called apartheid.
