Oops!! You know ... as people get older, they just tend to just spit out what they're thinking off the top of their heads at the moment!! Marion's telling it like it is. But also, he needs to stress how important it is that there be Black business owners ready to take their place. It's not just about buying a shop and opening up the door. You have to have the business skills to be able to make it successful.

“We are tired of sub-standard treatment, tired of being kept [at] arms length distance, tired of the lack of community engagement.” Hmmmmm…well….actually, I agree with him. Unfortunately, Asians believe Negroes are lazy, inept, lack the necessary intellectual skills to compete and have no family structure that is standard for other races and ethnicities. But whose fault is this? Whether you agree with it or not – perception is reality to most people. Since American Negroes openly and...

Re: Corporations Boycotted North Carolina over the Bathroom Bill, When Will They Stand Against Racial Injustice?

People can pee before they leave the house and pee again when they return home. Wear diapers. Stay home. You've NEVER known what could be lurking in Department Store bathrooms. Some of them are loaded with urine on the floor; you forget you had to go to the bathroom as soon as you opened the door. How can anyone expect JUSTICE from 'PEOPLE' that hate the ground you walk on and make all the damn rules and regulations you're to follow? There's no rock nor hard place in situations like that.

Why are they making this difficult? Just give them their OWN bathrooms. Women and children have RIGHTS too. No woman WANTS to use the bathroom with a MAN...with lipstick on or not. And no woman wants her children to be in the bathroom with MEN....lipstick, high heel shoes...whatever. Just reconstruct the women's bathroom where there is partition that separates real women and children and transgender. Problem solved. But!

Michael, listen, by really giving more, $$,$$$,$$$, you will exemplify a spirit of generosity in how we help one another and connect with one another. You want that?! Meet the challenge like a great man. By giving greatly, you will emanate real care to all. You still get to keep your millions and millions, but now you exemplify fatherly care to your people by creating institutions, for example, that economically lift up the youth. Will you do all that? If not, you should be bitch-slapped!

Hell, how about including Blacks in your business, creating jobs for Blacks, underwriting businesses that serve the Black community. Doing such will do more than just a shot in the arm but will create economic institutions Blacks can thrive on and he still makes a profit.
