I refuse to spend my money in businesses where the owners treat me like a 2nd class citizen because of my race.

I refuse to patronize businesses that make an diligent effort to prevent another race (ie Blacks...the race they make their money off of) from establishing businesses by discouraging vendors from doing business with them or threatening to boycott if they do.

Standing on principles is NOT racism.

Good for you, I did the same thing over a year ago and now wear locs. What we are discussing about Koreans having a monopoly on the black hair care business is one of the reasons that I gave up relaxing my hair.

This fascination we have with relaxing, weaving and altering our natural hair has led to depending on Koreans who have no respect for us or the dollars that we spend in their stores. This is about empowerment not race!

Why should we spend billions of dollars on these products and then when we decide we want to open a beauty supply or other business related to black hair care we have the races that we give our money to using underhanded tricks to stop our prosperity
