There are 2 comments on the story from Feb 26, 2009, titled The Difference Between A Black Business And A "Negro" Business. In it, reports that:

Our businesses thrived in this country when we understood the urgency of moments in time like Reconstruction, the Great Depression and Jim Crow. We knew that if we did not support one another we could not survive. Prior to integration, Whites refused to do business with us.

These days it is difficult to keep a Black business open. According to statistics, Black-owned businesses open and close faster than businesses owned by any other ethnic group in America.
