Sounds like it would be wise to invest in companies that make 22" wheels and malt liquor in 2015.

AA Buying Power has been on the rise since the late 60's, early 70's. It's too bad that so many (AA's) have chosen not to recognize and/or to ignore the potential state of liberalism it could bring...

If only you guys were united which I don't suggest because that will be racial segregation again it would matter. Untill then why can't you just settle for the fact that the USA has $14.6 trillion!(Number 1.)?

Poor little UK as well as France only have $2.1 trillion each..... You guys need to thank the UK and France for selling out in WW2 and post WW2 decolonization.

Hi.

http://www.terry.uga.edu/news/releases/2010/m...

The Selig Center report projects that over the past decade, the nation’s total buying power rose from $7.3 trillion to $11.1 trillion, a 52 percent increase that far outstrips inflation.

So, you're finally up to 10%. Just imagine how excited you'll be when it finally comes close to your percentage of the population.

No haters here...Just unrecognized and untapped potential (by AA's)

Why continue to let others prosper?...

Yup if African Americans was a country, we'd be ranked #16 as the wealthiest. Pretty amazing considering AA History. Ironically tho the AA community are not really reapin' all the benefits due to so many broken communities. It's the same way in Africa, they have a abundance of resources but many are not reapin' the benefits. This is a case of BP not knowing their worth or only seeing worth in everyone else.
