the new Obama era racism is alive

Chicago Family's 'Buy Black' Experiment Becoming a Nationwide Movement

Maggie and John Anderson of Chicago vowed four months ago that for one year, they would try to patronize only black-owned businesses. The "Empowerment Experiment" is the reason John had to suffer for hours with a stomach ache and Maggie no longer gets that brand-name lather when she washes her hair. A grocery trip is a 14-mile odyssey.

"We kind of enjoy the sacrifice because we get to make the point ... but I am going without stuff and I am frustrated on a daily basis," Maggie Anderson said. "It's like, my people have been here 400 years and we don't even have a Walgreens to show for it."

So far, the Andersons have spent hundreds of dollars with black businesses from grocery stores to dry cleaners. But the couple still hasn't found a mortgage lender, home security system vendor or toy store. Nonetheless, they're hoping to expand the endeavor beyond their Chicago home.

Wow .... I wonder if they think they are really helping the country with shit like this. Or do they not care about our country and only want to further there "brothas and sistas". This kind of shit is just downright anti-American.

I agree. If we did the same thing to them, they would be out of business in 3 months.

Wrong ... if whites did the same thing to them we would be shunned by the black community taking more revanue away form regular buisnesses. If whites continued on a "buy white" campain we would be sued for some gay shit and charged with a hate crime.

Welcome to the cesspool that America has become.

Man I love it when DFWS folks talk like this...

...I find it dumb that they are trying to do what they are doing. On the other hand, if they tried to only buy American I'd respect that.

I love this one..

""It's like, my people have been here 400 years and we don't even have a Walgreens to show for it."

That shits expensive, I don't even have a Taco Bell or Subway. Why the hell would anyone think they are handing out Walgreens?

...and who are "my people?"

Does this mean as a white person, I won't be subject to the blacks bagging my groceries? If they would take the elderly with them, I'd be thrilled! Shopping will be so much more efficient!!

I believe I said that with his election racism will come roaring back like never before, because the blacks want it.

Typical media product.

In this era black people are more responsible than whites for keeping racism alive. They hide these actions behind a veil of "black empowerment". They got their black president in office, what more do they want?

I hope so. I truly hope they are the minority in thinking that this is a good idea.

This is effectively the same as white people not allowing blacks in their stores. It is coming from the opposite direction but it all ends up the same, creating separation between people because of color. I am all for not going to a business if you don't like the service, even if you don't like the owner, but come on!

This kind of crap amazes me, and I have yet to get my head around it. I am 22, racism has never been a big factor in my life. I know it exists and I will admit I make a joke every once in a while, but it just isn't real to me. It is a story in a book or a movie. I wasn't taught, nor have i ever understood, hating people solely based on their color. As a joke I get it, but to actually live your life like that, and believe that every "insert race here" is a "insert stereotype here" just doesn't make sense to me.

Am I the only one who doesn't get it?

Yes, you get it. There is a lot that can be said about all of this, but the prevailing attitude comes from a belief that someone/something is holding someone back. The thought of personal responsibility and personal initiative never occurs.

I wonder what they would call it if white people had a white empowerment movement, and did it publicly with out shame.

This is great news to me!! Let those dumb fucks only buy from black people. Less I'll have to deal with their racist, entitlement bullshit. Hopefully it becomes a trend but I know it will not because the majority of them are to lazy to put forth that kind of effort. I'm tired of the bullshit, fuck 'em all.

Now this is just fucking retarded. I had typed out the fucked up ways of their logic, but it would be wasted because only a moron wouldn't get it on their own.

I fucking swear, after reading that whole article, what a bunch of fucking morons!
