I want to be sure Americans know why unemployment remains too high these days. I want to be sure Americans know it is in our hands, we the people, to bring down the unemployment figures. Unemployment is high and more than one group is at fault, for different reasons. There's enough blame to go around. It's mostly about greed and some of it the greed is because of need.

Black Entertainment Television founder Bob Johnson, speaking at The National Press Club, on 4/8/2013 said the nation “would never tolerate white unemployment at 14 and 15 percent.” Black unemployment has been double that of white Americans for more than 50 years.

They give poor customer service
They are only trying to make a quick buck and don’t care about their customers
They sell cheap products / below average services at exponentially high prices
They don’t guarantee their products / services
They are very unprofessional / ghetto
The #1 reason given by blacks for not supporting black owned business is that black businesses are ghetto & unprofessional. Sadly in some cases this is true but when it’s not and those businesses that .
