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.
Please explain why a "rich and successful" white person would care about a Black Expo that'll be held in Hampton, VA? Then, to top it off, they write negative comments at that. The blacks that will attend this expo are doing positive things with their lives. These aren't people who plan to sit around and whine, "Oh the white man is holding me down."

It's hard to find black owned businesses cause ya'll are lazy. That ain't my fault. How many people want to shop at a smoke shop, furniture rental shop, pawn shop or urban outfitter anyway.

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.

Hate to burst your bubble, but check your stats, the majority of people on welfare are caucasian. The myth of the "Black welfare queen" was just that, a myth. Next time, back it up with facts other than what you are being fed by the media whores. By the by, the Black expo is just that, a exposition displaying business ventures for investors of any color, not just Black people. One last thing, Blacks will stop crying right about the same time Whites stop whining.

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.

The idea that the white man would be called a racist for a gathering called the White Expo. Understand? Why is not just a Business Expo? Because the blacks want it to be just blacks. Could it possibly be that you are racist and that is why you do not understand why whites are offended? Or has it become a norm to offend whites without fear of legal proceedings?

No. You're the one who's a racist. I've read your hate-filled posts that you've posted in the WBIR/Knoxville Forum.

Some please show me a business, school or website that says "Blacks Only". Noone is stopping white from attending the Expo. I've seen people from all races attend these expos. So the only color that really matter is green.

The welfare numbers are about equal but since there are 8 times as many whites living here, the welfare rate for blacks is 8 times the white rate.

Rates can be skewed anyway you want. Numbers tell the story.

So you think that if a White businessman offered to invest, he would be turned away? What color is the sky in your world? If you want an example of wholesale white investment in Black business, check out the r&b, rap, jazz, and blues industry. The main color here is green.

All of this hostility over a positive AND public event?

"Because someone insults your race doesn't mean they are a failure. It could mean they can't stand your culture."

So now race and culture are synonimous? Here is a thought: Education! Important GEAR for LIFE.

Read, analyze, discuss and try to build bridges to better understanding people who are different from what you have been taught so far in life.

Exactly. This REALLY isn't about Blacks holding an expo. Believe me, that's not the REAL issue here. This is REALLY about blacks trying to advance in life. "Some" white folks hate to see blacks financially progressing in life. Especially, when they (white) people are struggling. I'm 41-years-old. And, I learned a long time ago that:

RACISM = ECONOMICS...

I bet Donald Trump or Bill Gates could care less if Blacks are holding an expo in Hampton, VA...
