This is the African American forums on a website called topix.com

I was browsing through the forums and have never seen so much white bashing, ever.
Everything was blamed on Whites, past and present.

It is really what I expected, however.

I couldn't imagine a website for white people where there were so many posts bashing the black people. What would that be called? Racism

What does this have to do with the Ebony Experiment?
I was reading an article about the experiment on the topix site. Here is the direct link. http://www.topix.com/afam/2009/03/womanist-musings-the-ebony-experiment-is-it-racist You should really read through the comments.

Bringing back Pre-Segregation?

If the Andersons want black people to buy from black owned stores, maybe she also wants whites to buy from white owned stores, and Asians from Asian etc. etc.

Then we can make signs that say Black Only and White Only. Maybe we should separate the schools and everything else too.

WAIT! We already did that before. Martin Luther King Jr. would be rolling over in his grave.

With all of the possible change in the air, and history in the making with the first African American President, why would anyone want to throw a wrench in all of it buy doing one of the most racist things I have seen in many years.

Rediculously Equal

I did a search and limited it to black and white for now.
The search consisted of many things. For one, I wanted to find out if there was a caucasian magazine or really a caucasian anything.

There was not a single entity that was designed for white people. Not one single thing.

If there were, then there really would be people in the streets shouting racism!
Now, if you search for African American magazine, there are dozens, and that is just magazines.



Project: Just for giggles, type caucasian into google. You will get a definition and some other foreign things.

Now type in African American. Enough said.

The reason this is, is because every time a white person says or does anything that has to do with one race, there really is a mob. It is in the news, naacp is called into action, etc. etc.

It seems to me that everyone has tried too hard to make things equal to the point where it has become unequal. Blacks actually do have more rights than whites.
White people aren't allowed to have white only anything.

On a side note:
Remember a couple of years ago when David Howard, an aide to a politician said the word 'niggardly'? Which means reluctant to give or spend; stingy; miserly.
He was forced to resign, because listeners didn't know what the word meant.
Fortunately he got his job back.

Listen to a rap songs all day. How many times do you hear the 'n' word?
If the black community doesn't want anyone else saying the word, why say it themselves? Don't promote it.


Anyway, the point I am getting at:

What if a white couple decided to buy only from white owned businesses? That would be their personal choice.
What if they went on TV and made websites about it, and tried to promote it? That would be racist. They would be publicly humiliated, and probably lose jobs etc.

Black Enterprise article

Black Enterprise has an article about this experiment. www.blackenterprise.com/wealth-for-life/2009/03/20/empowerment-experiment-shines-light-on-black-business-blight

I had to leave my comment near the end.
"Does this promote racism? America is ready for a change. Example: President Obama. Ideas like this help keep racism alive and strong.

Check out this site: http://empowermentexperiment.blogspot.com

During these hard economic times, Americans should be buying American goods. Not Blacks from Blacks."

I think the website itself is racist. Black Enterprise. I repeat, companies like this prevent racism from ever going away. Anything that promotes one color, defends one color, fights against other races just keeps racism alive.

How can we say America is not equal? Our President is an African American. I voted for him!

Everyone has equal opportunity if they go after it. Try to find a way to end gangs and promote education. These low income areas are where the majority of the problem lies, where the majority of the personal racism lies. End the quest for promoting one race. Big business supporting racism does not help the situation.

What is The Empowerment Experiment?


Well, initially it was named "The Ebony Experiment" as shown in the image to the left (found on 'thatblackgirlsite.com'). Renamed so it wouldn't be so racist sounding. As found here "http://theebonyexperiment.blogspot.com/ , and here http://www.ebonyexperiment.com/purpose.html ". Those sites will probably be removed soon as to not show the racism, to be replaced by the new sites they have made. You can also find mention on www.playahata.com ,
thesavvy-sista.com , www.blackweb20.com , www.blackinformant.com , www.blackplanet.com , globalgrind.com , iamcolourful.com , whatitbe.com , essence.com and more!

That by the way is NOT a joke. All of those websites are correct. I didn't realize there were so many sites dedicated to a particular race. That was only a few of them.

Just for comparison, I searched for sites dedicated toward white people. I did find one ' stuffwhitepeoplelike.com'. I went to the site and it was just a site named after a book.




Back to The Ebony or Empowerment Experiment:
It is another form of racism where blacks only buy from black owned stores. Forget the economic problems of America where everyone needs to start buying products made in the USA!



I think ideas like this will keep racism alive and strong.

America is ready for a change. Example: Obama making President. That wasn't an accident. People actually want change!


Imagine if a white couple went on the news with The Ivory Experiment. There would be marches and revolts. It happens all of the time. Any hint of racism gets publicized and criticized if made by a white person.


Ebony and Jet magazine. BET (Black Entertainment Television), National Negro College Fund,NAACP | National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Black Colleges. This is just a start.

What if there were Ivory Magazines, White Entertainment Television, Caucasian College Funds, and White Colleges?

There will always be racism as long as there are companies and ideas like this. End the Black Only and be the America Only!

I have traveled the country and found that most racism actually stems from the lower-class black and white areas. Mostly from the lower-class black areas. But to see companies actually shout out "black first", you can see why that is.

The country is ready to end racism. If Companies and ideas like this would jump on board, then racism would dramatically decrease. But we have to see it from their point of view. The companies only have one audience, they cannot afford to help end racism by not singling out a specific race.

Comments welcome.
