Radio host rallies blacks for Friday boycott

http://www.cnn.com/2007/US/11/01/nat...out/index.html

Quote:
A nationally syndicated radio host is urging black Americans to refrain from spending money Friday, and his efforts are garnering support from some of the civil rights movement's heaviest hitters.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, testifying before a House committee on the Jena 6 last month, backs the boycott.

Radio host and organizer Warren Ballentine hopes a "national blackout" of businesses will send Washington a message that blacks are fed up with racism and injustice, and he rejects criticism that his campaign is un-American.
Well I think us white folks should have a National Whiteout Monday to say we is tired of being discriminated against.
