"Asian business owners in his ward. Barry said,“We’ve got to do something about these Asians coming in, opening up businesses, those dirty shops. They ought to go, I’ll just say that right now, you know. But we need African-American business people to be able to take their places, too.”

i see nothing wrong with what he said here, except for the fact that it wasn't the most tastefull way to put it.

its about time a blk american public figure voiced this sentiment to blk people. maybe they will listen and stop patronizing non-blk, non-american businesses and of course we need blk business owners to take their places!!!

this is about survival an self-respect; not meaning to offend decent asian people but we have to look out for own interest in our communities.

no one else will.

So, if a white or Asian politician would state that he wanted blacks to take their "dirty shops" out of their neighborhoods, you'd be just fine with that??

we don't have any shops in your neighborhoods. neither do white neighborhoods have 99% of their businesses being owned by another race of people.

we have a special case here, you dummy. mind your own and get off our forum.

Yeah, you lot are "special" all right.

You don't get it both ways. As for getting off "your" forum, you do realize Topix is white-owned, right genius?

Organizing a boycott against business on the basis of race is a violation of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Marion Barry is a jackass loser.

even black people with money don't want to set up shops in black neighborhoods.

its too dangerous. duh.

asian people with shops in the ghetto are trying to make money in a war zone. a lot has moved out, but some are still there.

the mayor should be focusing on why blacks with money don't open up shops, and why they don't buy the businesses from Asians with shops.

you wanna know why? Because no one with money wants to make money by putting their life on the line. except those asians.

Maybe he'll "accidentally" murder the next crack-ho he finds himself with.

One of two things will happen. He'll be promoted to NU where most black men reside, or...

The ghetto slugs he panders to will attempt to elect him king for "representin'" them so perfectly.

Mr Barry may have made the mistake of becoming a drug addict but i truly love and respect him because he did a lot for blk people while he was in office.

there is absolutely nothing wrong with what he said if its true.

i totally agree with Mr. Barry.

because its the Asians holding blacks down
or are asians just the easiest to target because whites are too far away?
the bottom line is that blacks are more powerful than Asians politically so all this victimization shit is bs. but if this becomes a race thing... most Koreans have mandatory military training as you saw during the LA Riots when police left Koreans to fend for themselves.
anyways. theres been a movement away from ghetto stores by Asians. theyre sick of being robbed and shot at obviously.

richer Asian as have shops in white neighborhoods.
poorer Asians are left with black neighborhoods
black people... generally dont own businesses. who knows why but thats not Asians fault historically
your logic u are used to using for white people doesnt apply to Asians.
I usually thought black people had better emotional logic than whites. this multi racial understanding is the limitation I see.

by the way this is the Asian American forum. apologies will be accepted if ur momma taught u manners

You can love Barry all you want, but if he actually does anything against Asians which crosses the line from obnoxious to violation of rights, he will be arrested or sued. In younger days I had so much sympathy for black Americans because of the way they had been treated. Now, I believe their biggest problem is their whole ATTITUDE.

Black numbers are falling due to widespread abortions and broken families. Their replacement rate is below the two kids per couple needed to keep it at least to present levels. Immigrant blacks from the Caribbean do well, and you know why? Because they bring the same values of discipline and integrity that have caused whites and Asians to rise and do well.

For once, I am actually happy to have you posting on a thread. Yes, somebody needs to tell off that worthless piece of trash, Marion Barry.

anyways

just had an idea since we are on this " my feelings arent hurt if its true" thing

Asian store owners should hire black security guards for their stores and stand at the entrance. obviously then if most of the robbers are black the security guard can follow them around and stare at them.

anything that gets stolen can be taken out of the security guards wages.

anyone have a problem with that?

no asian is holding us down. no one ever said such a thing but of course it was and is our fault for allowing so many of you to open up shop in our hoods; an im talking about all you foriegners. We are just trying to wake the people up to see what has and is happening to us economically.

please leave our cities! but of course you won't any time soon for our people have been your bread and butter for decades....despite any robberies.
