It is base on a race, black is a race but what he is doing isnt racism. Anyone can get the card to be used at any participating black own business. The card color is irrelevant.

How about asian owned business's that sell products that cater to the black community?

Those seem to be the most profitable.... Like the Tisun hair place on Tryon.

kind of like that recent story of a college kid having a bake sale on campus and charging different prices based on race. it's all just a cry for attention/marketing scam that is unacceptable for caucasions but socially accepted by others.

I looked for that article when I saw this thread. The people doing the bake sale said the whole point was to bring attention to racial issues.

It's simple math.... 90% vs 0%.

People have sales all the time and the point is to get you to spend your money in their store instead of somewhere else.

ok, so I watched the video supplied by the OP. basically, regardless of the reason, the guy is trying to promote people supporting black-owned businesses. all I'm saying is, if it was a white guy trying to do the same thing, he'd be called a racist.

oh, and I thought it was funny that the guy's last name who owned the barber shop in the video was 'Black'. so of course he wants more 'black-owned' businesses hahah!

Gotta agree here, I understand that its a program that can be used just like any other coupon and people do it all the time to get people in the door. But the comment above is spot on, if a white card was created then we'd have Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton protesting in the city of charlotte.
