I recall the time when they announced the start of Noirbnb. It was after more than several incidents of Blacks being turned away from white hosts. Nice to hear about the origins of the biz.

@ihateyoutube: Absolutely! I did a research paper on racism in travel and hospitality and it's just like he said and much deeper. Not only do we spend millions of dollars on international travel but we spend most of our cash in the following top 5 states to the tune of $50B annually: CA, TX, GA, FL & TN. I recall (as of 2013) only one Black-owned hotel by a young man in S.F. I'm not sure if the Johnson's count though.

Since the Hispanic population in America is larger than the Black population, and their average income is higher than Blacks, where would Hispanic income rank in the top 10 nations (if you know). At the end of the day 99% of Black spending power is based on paychecks Black people get from Whites!! Just imagine how much spending power they have if they are the ones signing our checks. A paycheck is not wealth!! Ownership and control of the means of production (including land) is the source of wealth. On that note Black America owns about 0.5% (that is less than 1%) of the wealth in America. That is what we should be concerned about. Why has that number not budged since the end of slavery in 1865. We should be worried about the coming demographic onslaught where we will be relegated to the bottom of America's demographics where we will be neo-slaves to Asians, Hispanics and Whites . That is what our major concern should be.

and we should be using our own Airbnb which is Airbnb. Stop putting money into white owned Airbnb! Do you see Chinese putting money into eBay, no, they got their own Alibaba! So we should do the same with Noirbnb, BlackJunction and other black owned tech services!
