In Memphis Tennesee, local African American leaders, in opposition to pending white flight and possible erosion of a viable tax base, boycotted all Caucasian owned businesses in the Shelby County area this weekend as a demonstration of their economic impact on the community. The boycott was declared a success in the African American community, noting that revenue in Caucasian owned businesses was down 19%. Caucasian business owners declared the boycott a success as well, pointing out that shoplifting was reduced by 77% and hold-ups were down about 60%.
