The Difference between a Black business and a "Negro" business

There are 49 comments on the www.finalcall.com story from Nov 28, 2008, titled The Difference between a Black business and a "Negro" business. In it, www.finalcall.com reports that:

In order to do business, we must show character. We must open and close when we say we will open and close. We must treat the Black customer with the same regard that we would treat a dignitary. It does not matter whether the brother or sister is spending $5 or $5,000. If you treat us like kings and queens, we will return to do business with you once again. We need Black business bureaus and Black chambers of commerce in every one of our communities. We must be honest and trustworthy in our dealings with one another and when we make errors, we must quickly correct ourselves and move on. These are a few keys to the survival of Black business in America.

Believe it or not , when I go into a Black OWNED establishment I usually get good service (I am white).

It's when I go into a chain store staffed with Blacks is when the service is lousy. KFC, McD's or even a Red Lobster

I think the reason I get such good service is because is that whites "generally: will be more polite , do not cause a ruckus , scream and holler , will be patient and wait in line for their turn , and most of all show some respect .... and say thank you.Oler Blacks have the same behavior and respect but not in the younger crowd.

Good service is not a Black, white or "negro" thing Good service is good service and will always overcome and attract customers

Too bad you have to point this out as a NEWS story

Did you see footage of all those blacks stampeding a Wal-Mart in New York? They demanded the store open early. As workers were about to open the doors the mob destroyed the entrance and pinned a Wal-Mart worker to the ground. The worker was trambled to death. A pregnant woman and police (who were trying to rescue the worker) were also trambled on by the mob of black shoppers.

Here are photos of the carnage:

It was just disgraceful...

What on earth could Wal-Mart have that could cause people to behave like this?

One man is dead, and a woman has lost her baby. For what? A TV that was marked down? A toy that was half-price? A pair of shoes?

I don't go out for these "sales"; the way I see it, my physical safety and stress level is worth way more than any discount offered in any store.

This is pure insanity, and it's the main reason I hate the holidays. This time of year is nothing more than a spending blitz, and it's all about gifts, gifts and more gifts. It makes me sick to see all the Christmas displays in stores before the end of September every year. Geez, I'm not even thinking about Thanksgiving in September!

Black businesses fail at a rate 5 times faster than White Businesses.
It's not a racist thing as suggested, it's a matter of being unprepared, undereducated, and undercapitalized. New lending regulations and standards should close this gap, as fewer Blacks now qualify for Small Business loans.

Because if blacks owned Topix, it would have been history a long time ago, plus blacks know very little about computers, they just tap on them w/ their greasy ape paws.
Oh really? Then how do you explain the success of EBONY magazine? Which was founded over 60 years ago? The first issue was published way back in 1945.

Then you don't know what you might be missing.

There's a place called the Wishbone Cafe in Montgomery, AL. Talk about some good food...OMG!
They are the nicest people, the service is great, and the food is absolutely wonderful!

Don't judge a business by the appearance of the owner(s). I've eaten at many restaurants; I don't care about the owner's ethnic background. I care only about the quality of the food, the prices, the service, and the cleanliness of the place and the staff.

It's the same with a store- if you can give me equal or better quality and service, for the same or better prices, you've earned my patronage.

plesse don't talk to me about the SBA, especially the "MSBA".. it's an over regulated bureauaracy in general and the MSBA is mostly a symbol and I believe they are focused on women owned and in particular white women.

Im not surprised at all, the whole black culture seems to have a "me me me" attitude and a lack of respect for anyone else. They dont care that some woman died, they just care about the new basketball shoes or video game or whatever was on sale. Like a bunch of little kids with no parents around...
I have seen plenty white people stampede stores during Christmas sales,acting like fools! Sorry it's not just blacks.

I cant remember if they trampled the people to death,but a few years ago in Indiana some whites on the news trampled some folks.It was during Christmas.All I'm saying is when people get greedy they act like idiots.And they come in all colors!Fact!
