I stay in a “black hotel” regularly. Its a Springhill Suites franchisee. Its new, well run, and like every other Springhill Suites I stay in. It has many more black guests than other hotels in the local area. Its clearly owned and run by African-Americans (vice African or Caribbean natives). I can always get a room within per diem there and I recommend it highly.

All that is nice, but I don’t like the idea of classifying businesses as “black” or “white.” What is the point of that? Why do blacks get away with this, but scream if its the other way around? Why would blacks want to segregate themselves this way?

If Springhill Suites is a great chain, it’s a great chain and whoever owns it-—whether they are black, white, green or blue-—are doing a great job and are to be commended.
