Couple's 'buy black' experiment becomes a movement

It's been two months since 2-year-old Cori pulled the gold stud from her left earlobe, and the piercing is threatening to close as her mother, Maggie Anderson, hunts for a replacement.

This movement has been around for about a hundred years in one form or another.
Other organized black movements have concentrated their spending on WHITE businesses that support black interests.
If this new buy black movement gets much publicity it will certainly spawn a backlash of BUY WHITE that will overpower the buy black crowd.

As broke as black people have become under obama's recession it's hard to imagine them buying anything!

Obama's recession? Are you f-ing retarded? Obama has barely been in office 100 days, and you want to blame the recession that was going on before he was even sworn in on HIM?? You listen to Sean Hannity too much. When Bush Jr. took over, the economy was doing great! It wasn't until much later in his term that things went bad. Of course, the Repubs tried to blame that all on Clinton. Would you dumbasses at leat try to be consistent??

It amazes me how people want to judge Obama on his first 100 days. That should've been done with the first Bush, we would'nt be in this F'd situation now!! Obama will need at leat 8 years to get this country back together. White people have Obama under the microscope when they're the ones that caused this mess.

Yes 911 was Bush's fault!!! He tried to finish what his daddy started years ago. Look how many casualties we suffered at war and because of what?!

At least when Clinton was in office things were cool... I guess it's time to pick on the real Black man now... OBAMA!!!!! FOREVER!!!!!!!!!

For one, Obama is not my Messiah... Jesus is. Two.. Bush was never under a microspcope..Three.. Before you comment... please get the factes together. No wonder Al Queida hates the US... the ignorance of its people... like... Bush...

obama came to office promising to turn things around and, so far, he's failed. The public is already getting tired of obama's lies and his record government debt.

You lie when you say that George Bush took over a good economy. A recession had just started when Clinton was leaving office. George Bush turned it around and gave us the absolute best economy in American history with record stock market, record home ownership, and only 5% unemployment.
The current recession didn't begin until the Democratic Congress took over in January of 2007 and mismanaged the economy into the sewer. obama was part of that very Congress.

You tell another lie when you accuse me of listening to Sean Hannity. I don't even subscribe to cable or dish.
All you can do is make up tales, flatfoot!

Another liar exposed. Osama bin Laden himself claimed that he planned the 9-11 attacks after Clinton ordered Sudan to kick bin Laden out of his safe haven in their country.

All I know is if me and my family get in dire economical straiths, we won't be able to borrow our way out of debt. It has NEVER worked, and it woun't start with "O" as prez. Yet he has indebted this nation more than any of the previous presidents. Someone explain to me how you can borrow you way out of debt in a way I can understand.

Let's see:

We are in a bad financial way and we owe $1000.00

Let's borrow money to pay bills.

Now we are again in a bad financial way and we owe $2000.00.

How does this work out? How is "O"'s plan gonna work out? Seems the same to me......

This went from black businesses to government. There should be no "black and white" businesses in the US. There should be "American businesses".
Black, White, Green, Yellow, Blue, What difference does it make. We're all in the same recession.

Isn't it wonderful to know this kind of economic reverse racism is allowed to go on in today's United States. Something needs to be done to correct this type of "evil experiment".

Obama has'nt been in office long enough to be able to turn anything around. It took years to put us where we're at now and it's definitely going to take years to get us out of this mess and that's no matter who is president.

It took less than one year for the Democratic Congress to get us into an economic slump. They deliberately failed to pass legislation for the economic stimulus checks until President Bush went public and demanded that they do something. The $600 checks finally went out but then the Democrats AGAIN deliberately waited to pass the much bigger economic stimulus package until AFTER the presidential election. By waiting so late the Democratic Congress allowed the economy to slip past the non recovery point.
Their policies are not creating jobs or stimulating the economy but are designed to use stimulus money to reward political supporters and fund wasteful vote buying social programs. Unemployment is worse every month under obama and home foreclosures are up as well.
Foreign leaders who have met with obama were formerly supporters of him but are now dismayed that obama has no substance to his foreign policies and is being backed down by hostile foreign leaders like Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro.
Red China and Russia and North Korea are all growing their militaries while obama does nothing to counter these threats to world peace.

I understand what your saying and all but if you really look at it all... The economy was messed up long before Obama came into the picture. It just appears that Obama is being used as a skapegoat for what Bush did. We live in a dysfunctional economy and everyone wants to point fingers besides where they deserve to be pointed.

Honestly if a Black man was'nt the president would there be a dicussion on his forst 100 days? Would the blame game be there? I guess most people blame Obama for the useless war that is still going on as well and he was'nt even in office. Bush must take some responsibility. What did Bush do to encounter these threats to world peace? He turned half of the world against us!

Let's be real about it... 911 could've been prevented... funny Bush was hiding out not caring about anyone else. If you want to keep blaming Obama for the worlds mishaps.. fine. Bush could never be the man Obama has been in the little time served in office anyway. Have a good day *S*

Actually, you're lying and I have data to back up my claims.

Bush did not walk into a recession. He didn't walk into budget deficits.

Bush's recession did not started in MARCH 2001! That's three months after he took office. See, you Bush loving republicans can't even stay consistent with your logic. Somehow, THAT recession, which started AFTER Bush took office, is not Bush's fault. It's the fault of the previous guy. But the CURRENT economic crisis we are in started BEFORE Obama took office, but somehow, it's Obama's fault!

Oh, here's some info about U.S. Recessions:

Nice try though! Make sure to do a fact check before you post next time, a$$.

Wrong, Flatfoot. Clinton's term ended in recession and George Bush inherited that plus a military that had been financially gutted by Clinton to make his economic figures look better than they really were. Clinton also sold off America's Strategic Oil Reserve into near depletion. President Bush spent 7 years refilling the Reserves and now we have those assets for emergency use. There was another recessionary dip caused by the 9-11 terrorist attacks. The U.S was forced to put up 80 billion dollars to guarantee exchange rates for the U.S. dollar. Business declined out of fear of a war recession but George Bush turned that around into the best economy in American history. It took a Democratic Congress to flip back into a recession in 2008, engineered to affect the presidential election. Now, the obama led Democrats have maxed out America's credit world wide and have failed to create employment or business investment. This is obama's recession and he's failing to counteract it.

Could you please show some ECONOMIC DATA that shows we were in a recession when Bush Jr. was sworn in?? I mean, it's easy to make false claims, but it's another thing to back up your claims with EVIDENCE, like I did.:-)

Dick Cheney was quoted as saying the military a President has is the one built by the previous administration. After the first Gulf War, he thanked Reagan for the military he provided to Bush Sr. Do you think Cheney and Bush Jr. thanked Bill Clinton for the military that did such a great job in Afghanistan shortly after Bush Jr. took office?? If Clinton so destroyed our military, why did they do such a quick, swift job in Afghanistan and Iraq? Yeah, things are pretty messed up in Iraq right now, but that isn't a result of the military. It's the result of Bush not having a good plan for Iraq once the military did its job.

You know what's really funny? If there is a Democratic congress and a Republican president, YOU want to blame the Democratic Congress for the recession. But if there is a Democratic President and a Republican Congress, you want to blame the Democratic President! But if there is a Republican Congress and a Republican President, you want to blame the previous Democratic whatever! You're priceless!!

We had a Republican Congress from 1994 to 2007. Bush had a Republican Congress the first 6 years of his administration. This mess we are in right now is because of THEM, not Clinton, who left office 8 years ago, and not Obama, who didn't even take office until this recession was already going.

So, how about you provide some links to EVIDENCE that Bush was sworn in during a recession?? I provided PROOF that is NOT the case, but I guess people like you can't get caught up with details like that!
