Former Mississippi Governor Theodore Bilbo referred to “dirty” Negro-owned businesses after winning the state’s Senate primary, demanding that “they ought to go,” according to a report.

“We got to do something about these Negroes coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops,” Bilbo said on Tuesday night, according to an audio recording played by NBC radio. “They ought to go. I’m going to say that right now. But we need White businessmen to be able to take their places, too.”

oops, sorry, it's actually

Former District of Columbia mayor Marion Barry referred to “dirty” Asian-owned businesses after winning the city’s Council Ward 8 primary, demanding that “they ought to go,” according to a report.

“We got to do something about these Asians coming in and opening up businesses and dirty shops,” Barry said on Tuesday night, according to video posted by WRC-TV/NBC4. “They ought to go. I’m going to say that right now. But we need African-American businesspeople to be able to take their places, too.”

By the way, Senator Bilbo was chairman of the Senate Committee on the District of Columbia from 1945 to 1947, so he was effectively the de facto co-mayor of the district with his House counterpart for a couple of years,

Can't speak for DC, but here in my hometown, Asians (Middle Eastern, South Asians, and East Asians) run a lot of the dirty little convenience stores in a lot of very dirty Black neighborhoods. It's pretty gutsy. I'd be terrified to work in a lot of those areas. They're pretty much the only legit businesses. I wouldn't be so eager to see them go.

In many African American communities, people who live outside of their community set up shop in black communities and take money out of the community back to wherever they live, which is assumed not to be down the block.

It's viewed as a long-standing part of African American impoverishment, that outsiders control the commerce of African American communities and suck them dry by taking all the proceeds elsewhere.

The idea is that, if black people who lived in the communities owned these shops, they would profit off of their community but that profit would stay in the community, enriching it and building a less exploitative economy.

White people never had this problem, so it's not at all comparable to if a white person advocated kicking out black shop owners.

Why do so many people here cheer on war crimes?
Israel and the United States "killing dozens of civilians with explosives", as you phrase it, has, throughout history, almost always been a good thing.

I really haven't anything to post here aside from that I consider Marion's statement quite disturbing.

This would be a pretty mild statement from Bilbo, I think, compared to what else he's said.

Yeah, those damn asians need to stop forcing black shops to close with their karate, kung fu and two parent households.  Perhaps Affirmative Action can be put to work here?

Seriously though, I don't know why black entrepreneurs don't open shops in black communities.  I could speculate, but that could come across a little racist.  Black entrepreneurs certainly exist.  I'm sure they have good reasons.  I'm guessing that if a lot of these Korean (or whatever) owned shops didn't exist, no shop at all would exist.

Which reminds of the backlash Wal Mart often gets when they try to move into a city (like Chicago a decade or so ago), denying poor people the opportunity to buy sh**t cheaper seems like a dick move, but whatever.  Yeah, Wal Mart sucks, but it's better than nothing or insanely overpriced small shops or having to travel dozens of miles for the poor consumer.

Going on what I've seen, it exists entirely for Wormy to troll dem nazi communist libs, because they are so very clearly the only party that deserves to be attacked.

He wanted to see if anyone would defend racism from a Black Democrat and a couple of resident hacks did not disappoint, but did indeed do so.

Whether that was worthwhile or not is a value judgment I guess.
