Looks like a bad time for immigration reform, and legalizing 11 million more people eager for good jobs.

the only thing that will help Blamerican people is if they pull their resources together and be determined support each other in every economic endeavor: this means they need to go to each other to get their toes and nails done, go to each other to get their hair braided, only ride blk american cab drivers, mainly eat at blk owned restuarants, etc.. etc..

ain't no use in expecting bamby ears to act like he gives a dorn.

My question is that how can you support black business when they're so mean and rude to customers, hardly taking care of their
Establishments.

I try to patronize as much as possible, and have Black workers do construction on my house. My husband is doing the gardening himself now, instead of the company that used to have non-English speaking employees half-azz cutting the grass. The yard looks better, and we save 100 bucks a month.

It is also important to support businesses where you see Blacks working. I hate to walk in some place and notice that I am the only Black person there, including the help.
