Attention my black brother sand sisters! This is our fault for spending money at the businesses that drag our folks down, just like the corner liquor store, the pimp, the dealer, those ripoff corner grocers that sell us outdated goods etc.
Now as for the major chains that serve the rest of the human community, they avoid us, why, because we steal so bad. I have for the last 30 years worked in the retail industry.. Only we can change this and stop going to Micky Ds,Church's,'s, KY fry and Booger King.
