DEAR BLACK AMERICA 2012 AND BEYOND
It is a shame and an embarrassment to be a black person because every time you look around black people are crying, and whining because someone hurt their feelings or insulted our infantile intellect:
"Toyota insulted us by putting those "thank you ads" in White newspapers and refusing to address Black consumers in Black newspapers,"
Publisher of the New York Beacon
You did not thank me", "you put the word "negro" on the census form", you said, "those folks" or you "insulted us"
According to The Sentinel Online Newspaper they represent "a network of 200 Black publishers that represents over 19.8 million weekly readers, approximately half of America’s Black population" while in the same breath professing to be:"
We are "tried, true, and trusted when it comes to Black people in America," "We are the gatekeepers for reaching Black people.
We just can't stand by and let Toyota disrespect our people that way." I don't think that our publishers will break rank with me; after all we're smarter than that.

Now here is where it really undermines the assertion that African Americans are "smarter than that."
The Sentinel Online Newspaper proclaim with justification that "Black Consumers Spent $2.2 Billion with Toyota, last year" but how smart was that when you consider that:
Get smart for real black America because if we have spent 2.2 billion dollars last year with the Japanese then be smart enough to spend that same money to build your own car lots, canneries, manufacturing plants, industries, infrastructures, schools and technologies.
The title to this Toyota story should be: A fool and their money will soon part ways.
