How many grocery chains are owned by blacks?
It's a simple question....I don't see why you're getting so confused.
Don't try to change it up. You said "store" not "chain", and off the bat, I don't know how many of them there are out here, but I know for certain that there are some Ethiopian and Eritrean groceries, as well as some Jamaican ones, just from perusing around.

And in any case, this is off topic. You said that I would starve waiting for someone to open up a "Negro Store".

To which I asked, how is that when Black businesses are one of the fastest growing in the country. You have not answered that question.

And this, folks, is how what happens when you systematically break down an intellectually inferior white racist point by point, blow by blow.

It's quite amusing just how fast they lose their marbles. It doesn't take much. lol....

Well given the fact that you live in the city with the largest gay/shemale population in the country, the fact that you seem to have a strange adulation for homosexuality, and all terms associated with such activity, and the fact that you're a pansy, what are we to make of your orientation there, chief?

What is it that you **really** do when you're not obsessing over Black people?

Another fool expressing limitless stupidity...how is that when Black businesses are the fastest growing in the country?
Census Bureau Reports the Number of Black-Owned Businesses Increased at Triple the National Rate
From 2002 to 2007, the number of black-owned businesses increased by 60.5 percent to 1.9 million, more than triple the national rate of 18.0 percent, according to the U.S. Census Bureau's Survey of Business Owners. Over the same period, receipts generated by black-owned businesses increased 55.1 percent to $137.5 billion.
“Black-owned businesses continued to be one of the fastest growing segments of our economy, showing rapid growth in both the number of businesses and total sales during this time period,” said Census Bureau Deputy Director Thomas Mesenbourg.

Does it hurt being as intellectually inferior as you?
New Black owned businesses led only percentage wise. Not in raw numbers. Smaller numbers always have a larger 'percentage' gain than larger numbers.

Not sure why you felt the need to post that. Are you inferring that the growth of new black owned businesses outpaced the growth of new white owned businesses???

Or else, your money will fly out to foreign-countries.

I'm thinking it did since it is three times the national rate. I don't know what the rate for white folks is, but if the national rate is an indication, I would say, given that they are the majority.

But that isn't the point. I'm not concerned about raw numbers. I'm concerning growth rate.

That other fool tried to argue that I would "starve" waiting for Black people to open a store, to which I asked how so considering that Black businesses are some of the fastest growing in the country.

Actually from 2002 to 2007, new white owned businesses increased from 19.5 million to 22.6 million. An increase of 3.1 million.
During the same time period new black owned businesses increased from 1.15 million to 1.9 million an increase of 750,000. A 400% increase of new white owned businesses over new black owned businesses.

In part he is correct. Mom and pop food stores only offer basic nutrition at a premium price and are typically owned and operated by the Asians. I'm sure that is something the black community wants to get away from. Major Supermarket chains refuse to move into black communities due to the shoplifting/robbery problems. Blacks as a whole have not yet reached the point where they own any supermarket chains that can offer nutritional food at a competitive price. Even if they did, they would be purchasing all the goods from white owned distributors.

You don't seem to understand how this works.

You are comparing the number of new white businesses to the number of new Black ones. I already told you that we aren't talking about **raw numbers**.

We are talking about GROWTH RATE.

Get that through your head.

White = 13.6 percent growth rate.

Black = 60.5 percent growth rate.

Again, you don't seem to know what you're talking about.

The African Caribbean Food Market down here in Oakland is Black owned and sells fresh produce for much the same prices as anyone else.

I don't know where AA's get their supplies from, but the Ethiopians and Jamaicans who own restaurants and stuff here get a lot of their products from Ethiopian and Jamaican suppliers respectively, whether here or in their native countries.

Exactly. So, in the efforts of forgoing all that, it simply be in everybody's best interest for Blacks to just spend money among themselves and be our own product/service suppliers.
Bakari, I read the article and it seems to me that the title is misleading. "Buy Local" would have made more sense.

My 2 cents.

Thank you. You're the only person that made sense. You supported what you said with empirical data and all these clowns could do was throw asinine, vitriolic insults that were of no pertinence to the discussion.

I appreciate them though. They fuel something in me to strive to unify the black community. They think they're breaking us down when what they're doing is bringing us together. There's nothing more satisfying than proving people wrong and turning their whole world upside down.
