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.
My point was that in that hotel (and in numerous other establishments in my experience) African Americans tend to patronize their own. They are not unique seen it with Vietnamese and other groups.
However, it does not seem to be a factor with whites.
