This is a cool idea, but it needs work.

How would one know the race of the owner of a particular business?

Also what if you live in an area with little diversity? Travel far to find a such business?

I'm sure some black people own shares of Amazon.

Yes they expect you to go to the next state for a trip to mom and pop instead of going to walmart

I was thinking maybe they could put a placard in the window saying 'minority owned business' or something. But then I remembered that people suck and someone would probably throw a rock threw the window.

Indeed: there's not a great history of using signs to indicate a minority owned business.

I don't think it matters anyway.  BLM protesters are willing to shoot and kill 8 year old black girls.  And they don't have any compunction about vandalizing black owned businesses.

It's not white supremacists going in and causing that damage and shooting people.

This will work as great as "Don't buy gas today", to stick it to the energy companies.

You know someone has at least two alts when they post something like that and it instantly has three "Smart" votes.

Welp, there is a few less of them since the rioting.

Blackout? Sounds racist. We're going to have to change the name. I'm not sure what this day is, but we've been told that we can't use the word black anymore.

7.62 X 35? A round with similar ballistics to the Russian 7.62 X 39 (AK 47, SKS, many more)?

Blackout day ?   WTF..  why would you shut the power down for the day ?   That means no AC.. Fark that !

That,s what blackout means to me...  If I go into a store or shop to buy something, I don't care who owns or runs the business..  It would be nice if the dividers that came up with this crap found something productive to do.  Skin color and religion are irrelevant, behavior is not.

I have zero alts.

And what I posted is absolutely true, despite you implying that it isn't.
