I'm sure you agree with me on more than just a couple of things, fatso, but I'll give you a little credit for admitting the little that you do agree on.
I hate to break up this little romantic moment between you, LadyFinger, and you, Nmaginate, but, ummmmm, we blacks are currently the largest consumer demographic in the world. We spend over 700 billion dollars a year on on various products, not even counting cost of living expenses like electric, gas, rent, mortgage, etc.
We spend over 700 billion dollars a year on the same 'racist instititions' that say black people are broke and don't have the taste to appreciate their products--corporations like Nautica, and Tommy Hilfiger, to say the least, are the same corporations that have survived bankruptcy and going out of business due to our consumer dollars.
Of all the demographics in the United States of America, black women rate the highest in credit card debt due to impulsive spending, and that's just the tip of the iceburg. Yeah, black people have a long way to go before they can even BEGIN to collectively think about reparations.
