For the bonehead who said about that new coffeeshop on Troost: "But if you don't see people who look like you, working somewhere, that's the first signal that like, is this a place for you?" I wonder the same thing the one time I went to Gates BBQ.

IMMIGRANTS ARE ESSENTIAL

No they’re not. 100 years ago you could say they were, but today immigration has become a way for corporations to keep from paying Americans a decent standard wage
The irony is, democrats are going to pass a 15 dollar minimum wage law, and at the same time flood the country with people who will paid less than that
You want a higher wage? Stop immigration
Even Caesar Chavez understood that

H&R Block giving free help to Black-owned businesses.

STFU about reparations and victim hood.

H&R Block has been overcharging most of their customers for their services for years. That's why customers have been fleeing to alternatives.

Someone should sue H&R Block that's racist discrimination at it's worst. This BS that a certain type of people were hit harder is a bunch of crap. This is not going to fare well at all with people Wait until the word spreads about this. How about we all put up a sign NO BLACKS ALLOWED!!!!!! This is the last straw. Black people have shown their true color of hatred and racism with this racist movement of BLM. You people are EVIL.
