Family to advocate racial separatism

Maggie Anderson asks:
What if our community truly united to Buy Black? Now, we’ll see.
She and her family plan to "buy Black" starting January 1. The Chicago Sun-Times writes on Ms. Anderson's plan to buy Black:
That means she's got to find a new dry cleaner. She's looking for a place to gas up the family's two cars. And locating black McDonald's franchises is a must. "My girls love the fries," she said of her two daughters.
There is no word yet on the genetic purity that she will require. How many generations back must a McDonald's franchise owner provide their his genealogy in order to establish an acceptable racial background so that Ms. Anderson's daughters may enjoy their French fries? Would a 1/8th non-Black background disqualify the franchisee? Or, would a 1/8th Black background be sufficient for her to purchase the fries? Racial separatism is more complicated than it sounds.

PREVIOUSLY, on the subject of racism: "He's not black and he can't represent me, that's just the bottom line" and "NAACP defends racism."
