It must have helped a lot to have an alternative.

Interesting point in the article brings up the fact that folks were trying to have the catalog business lose sales by claiming that black men owned the companies.

Only a retard could believe black men owned such a large and sophisticated business.

Reading is fundamental so they say.

A white owner took out an ad to prove he wasn't black, based on rumors, so someone must have thought it was true.

I bet some folks find it incredulous that there are black billionaires like Robert Johnson in the world. When you spend your entire day lobbing jokes about food stamps and EBT Cards, you probably would think it's not possible for some black people to amass great wealth.
