I ate at the little burger joint in the jazz district the other day and they looked at me like I lost my damn mind, later I walked out and ran into some black lawyer who works down there and with a straight face he told me the jazz district was for blacks only, they don’t want whitey down there, I shit you not, now I know why the burger joint people treated me so poorly.

I sincerely hope that everyone in the Black community supports Black Restaurants. Don't worry about white folk showing up. The word is out....

I'm not gonna go down there, that may be looked at as "cultural appropriation". I hope they get the support they need from the black community. I won't go, when they've made it quite clear that they don't want any white people there.

^^^^^^^^ What is your evidence. Nobody ever said that. However, I think nobody will miss you lousy 2 bucks. Keep it at the 7 11.

"Nobody ever said that."
Yes they have, both in words and in actions.
It sounds like 8:02 had a similar experience.
And it's more than my $2 they won't get; they're driving away non-blacks and their money. Good luck in your future success.

The black community represents about 12% of the US population.
Why would ANY business limit its outreach and appeal to such a small percentage of potential customers?
So they get a percentage of a small percentage and then blame the failure on "racism".
It never changes.
