Is there really a need for a white folks expo? The Black Expo is not to keep whites out. It's to allow people to find black owned businesses in the state and area easily. It's not hard to find white owned businesses becuase they majority of bsuinesses are white owned. If it were hard to find white owned businesses then there would probably be a white expo too.

Please learn to spell. You should have written, "There has always been a white expo. It's called the government."

There is nothing to worry about, the Black Expo will never make up for the days when Blacks couldn't have businesses, or were locked out of local government contracts, and funding resourses.

In the good old days when the local government collected their taxes and spent the funds with White contractors pretty much gave an edge to White Contractors, now there are no more no bid contracts, except for Iraq. Ahhhhh the good ole days

APPLAUSE!!! A serious good point. An intelligent person with an ounce of sense can see that you've raised a good point even through your SPELLING and TYPING errors...

They don't need one. They have motivation and can do things on their own.

Poor ole "darkie" ... "Nobody knows the troubles I've seen". Will you people ever stop crying? Look how many generations of you have been on welfare. Look at the other people that come to the USA and work hard and become good self supporting people. Stop your bellyaching and do something to help yourself instead of waiting for a free handout.

Justice I am not sure if Don is white or black. If white he sympathizes with the black culture. He lives in a shrink wrapped neighborhood apparently safe from all news and happenings in the surrounding areas. A white person speaking up is an evil to him which cannot be tolerated.

What's the matter? Are you struggling financially? Therefore it makes you feel better to enter an African-American forum and hurl insults at our race? I've got a bit of news for you. You can't blame the black race for your failures. If you're a LOSER and haven't amounted to anything in life, blame yourself. NOT BLACK PEOPLE...

For your information the article was in the Daily Press. So anyone can post a thought. Because someone insults your race doesn't mean they are a failure. It could mean they can't stand your culture.

Ya'll do a good enough job bringing your own race down. You don't need others to do it.

Never allow closed minded individuals the opportunity to make you mad. People that are limited in their thinking often times point out negative and divided aspects of others. Ignorance is contagious and it is obvious that some people are carriers of that virus posting comments that are designed to create rage and negative emotions.

The best solution is to not get injected with their same virus, by expressing the postive. We are all of the human race, the color is extra. No one race is better than the others. We should be judged based on our own character.
