I feel conflicted on this issue. For those who want to support Black Businesses, it may be effective to see these businesses listed. This could be helpful for Black people, like myself, who are new to a town and want to support Black owned businesses.

However, I also understand your point that this system can be abused to actually perpetuate the racism it aims to diminish. I do think it is important to address the potential abuses. Thanks for writing this.
