One Family’s Effort to Buy Black for a Year | PBS NewsHour | June 19, 2012 | PBS

Some whites love to talk about how blacks are lazy, will not work hard and prefer welfare, yet when the Anderson’s attempt to reverse the economic conditions in black communities they are called racists. Spending money at businesses that will not build, provide work in black communities is the American way? Using black income in a way that only enriches whites is a good thing?
Chinatown, Little Italy and other racial/ethnic communities have shoppers who patronize them exclusively, but when hard working middle class blacks attempt to revitalize the economy of black businesses that are racists? It seems that anytime that a significant portion of whites have to face the fact of racial inequality they loose the ability to think rationally and scream that’s racist along with a meager repertoire of constantly repeated tropes that demean any effort to change this differential.

    They call him racist, yet the people who avoid buying from blacks or voting for a person who is half-black are considered normal and loving people.
