I'm sorry but this seems extremely racist. If it was a white family on television advocating buying from only white businesses, everyone would be enraged. How is this any different? This does nothing but further the divide between races. I feel sorry for your children that you are providing such a poor example.
It is a deeper and more important issue than racism. This is about empowerment. The figures have been posted for the highest unemployment rate among the races - African Americans lead - 13.4%.
Commendations and Advocations to this exemplary family. Thank you for your marvelous effort of love and support for our own community, love, promotion and very existence. This is the example the world needs that not only blesses yourself and others, but is the mirror by which your fellowman can hold up to compare itself. This is reminiscent of the long-held practice of the Jewish people everywhere, as well as other European communities that thrive and maintain the continuity and advantage of their own history and culture. It is the "water" that raises all "boats". I pray that you can overlook all the ignorance that views your objectives as otherwise. Continue to lead your family and others in the right direction. I have chosen to keep those principles selectively since the sixties myself even if I thought I was only a party of one maintaining the objective. It made a difference to me at least. May God, our Heavenly Father continue to bless, guide and love you for all you do.
This is racism, plain and simple. As AmericanTusk said above, if a white family were to do this exact same thing there would be a massive outcry. There is such a double standard in this country that it makes me sick sometimes. Your children are being raised under the same bigoted mentality as a KKK family back in the 50s.
