No McDonalds in October !

      With the justice system beginning to take course in the Treyvon Martin murder case, now what. It seems unrealistic to think the level of outrage and media coverage will remain this supportive when addressing simularly controversial stories that inspire racial debates. We as a people can still use the tidal wave of energy caused by this Treyvon Martin Tragedy. He should be our Khalid Said, he was the young man who died mysteriously in the custody of Egyptian police. Mysterious until the photos were released. The outrage expressed through social media started the Egyptian revolution of 2011, it will be seen as the historic first step towards freedom in the future.
     Nobody is calling for a physical revolution, but it is time to take our power back or at least begin taking the steps. The plan remains the same, using the megaphone that is social media blacks should spread the word to not eat at McDonalds for one month, six months from now in October. Not to hurt McDonalds, (who makes 5.2 billion per yr. from blacks that's 433 million per month from our community or 18% of total profits)http://www.thegrio.com/health/how-mcdonalds-new-ceo-affects-black-community.php, but to make a statement as a people or voting block that we can remain solid and support our interests.
     We then use the Collective 433 million dollars of McDonalds money to invest in positive local entities black businesses or otherwise. If the Government dedicated 433 million dollars totally to miniority interests it wouldn't solve all problems but it would be historic none the less. Its a small price to pay. Its not sacrificing all fast food just one company. So spread the word No McDonalds in October Spread the word.
     Make no mistake, there probably won't be a way to measure the way the money changes a given community. The actual point is showing that as a group we can act collectively ,to mold our future.  This is the natural progression, to work together with sit ins and marches, to show our strength as a unit. In America the legitimacy of a group is defined by the strength of its block, voting or economic. A unified mass exodus of a given block in either of these two instances garners courtship, thus the block is taken more seriously and treated with respect. But how in the black community, arguably the most fractured block in America do we take our voice back. This isn't designed to topple McDonalds, or change the diets of black people. Its only to highlight small sacrifices we all need to make to get the wheels of change turning again. Without sacrifice change is hard to come by in any circumstance, and no McDonalds for a month would definitely be a small sacrifice in relation to the statement it sends. This might not change perception overnight, but it would mold our reality, back into the form of a people with power, and a united voice, with a realistic chance to respectfully navigate our own course, as we all effectively become the new leaders of our own community. We use Social Media for everything else, why not this.

  Here's a cool list of  blk spending habits. http://www.thechicagocitizen.com/wp-content/uploads/pdf/StateOfTheAfricanAmericanConsumer_v22-1.pdf

P.S.

  Nothing Personal McDonalds.

  1. I support this. If only for the hope that one month out of the year there will not be any garbage in the streets from all the blacks going there and when they are done eating thinking that the street is your garbage can. So yes no Mcdonalds in October, go for it.

  4. while you're at it, you should boycott county fairs, suburban malls, parks, chuck e cheese, Ihop, supermarkets, orange crush, black bike week, cruise lines, amusement parks, zoos, movie theaters... That will teach everybody a valuable lesson.

      Really stick it to Whitey and boycott all of Western Civilization!

      Withdraw completely from America and Europe and carve out a nation

      in Africa!

      Sever all ties with the West and the Whitey!

      That would sure teach us!!

      Stick it to the man, negroes!

    2. Yeah...

      it would teach us the pleasures of living in a veritable crime-free paradise...

      of the joy of not having to see or hear sulking blacks shucking and jiving about reparations...

      and, not to mention the absence of the stench of coco-butter and feces.

  6. If blacks could organize as this suggests, they wouldn't be such a helpless species. While a boycott of everything would serve everyone's best interests, you could never get more than one or two black folks to comply. They simply lack the will power to resist the fries and mayonnaise.

  8. Eric Holder is a racistMay 8, 2012 at 3:48 PM

    This blog entry is a fucking joke right?

    Blacks are unable to organize anything unless it involves looting, raping, robbery or murder. Then they upload the evidence to WorldStarHipHop.

  10. the comments on here are absolutely ridiculous. The article is stupid though Boycotting Mcdonald's. come on dude seriously? boycott mcdonald's and pool all the money together for the black community? lmao you can do better than that. If your gonna boycott something go for something that will make a blip on the radar. boycotting Mcdonalds for a month won't do a damn thing but save a few cows,chickens and potatoes. Stop the "Oh Im black and woe is me" crap. I made a fortune through hard work and no one tried to hold me back or make me feel bad about it like Im some kind of sellout for making a life for myself and my family but members of the Black community I lived in my whole life. White people weren't shooting up the neighborhood..black people were. whites weren't breaking into peoples homes and selling drugs on the corners where kids couldn't even walk to school without fear of being caught in a crossfire..black people were.
    I know they still owe that 40 acres and a mule but its never coming so get up stop feeling like a victim and go out and get it yourself because to insinuate that someone else is holding you down and stunting your growth so to speak is a sign of weakness and a cop-out.

    2. So that's what you got out of this? Pretty short sided. I love your negative attitude about getting a fractured group to work together. Its not about the money its about the statement of unity it conveys. Your plan is great... do nothing, its been working great so far. And to say out loud that a clear effort isn't currently under way to prevent the spread of multiculturalism of America shows how ill informed you are. Read a little more and get off of your high horse and work to help the least of the people. When you have a plan then you can criticize. Next time put your name on it, so people know who spouts these divisive moronic opinions.

  12. Hi Clinton, R. Your idea is right on target and obviously has substance. There was just too much hating on your idea for it not to be a good one. I know the economic collective power our people hold and its a shame we don't stand up and DO something besides keep on talking about redundant issues such as the ignorant and self defacing using the dreaded "n" word. Our power has always been in our wallets and unfortunately because we know that the will to be lies in one's mind [and God knows the savage has literally made EVERY attempt to obliterate our natural minds with their (as a whole) inhumane treatment of us (as a whole)] most of us will never say or do a thing and some of us will make it very hard for those that do take a stand. I, not being fooled or placid will definitely promote this idea amongst those around me. I personally would love to chat with you to discuss our commonalities. Perhaps we could orchestrate some change.
