Celebrating Racism

It’s okay if it’s “politically correct” racism.    I simply cannot fathom making buying decisions on the basis of race, much less being celebrated for doing so.

The story I link to above has a blatant lie:

There are one million black businesses in the United States accounting for more than $100 billion in annual sales, according to the National Black Chamber of Commerce. The latest U.S. Census numbers report that blacks have more than $800 billion in expendable income each year.

There are no black businesses.  There are black-owned businesses.  There are businesses catering to black clientele.  There are products targeted to black buyers.  Businesses are not black, or white.
