The following is our list of the most powerful African American business leaders running mammoth enterprises that gross more than $10 billion.

    BLACK AMERICA, READ FOR DISCERNMENT AND COMPREHENSION:

    “it will reduce the ranks of African American CEOs who run the nation’s largest publicly traded companies. The following is our list of the most powerful African American business leaders running mammoth enterprises that gross more than $10 billion.”

    TRANSLATED:
    The blacks they refer to as “powerful” are considered such by white America only because the blacks run the company in the interest of white America however whites own the company that runs the blacks that they let appear to run their company therefore the blacks are only deemed to be powerful because of the whites that are in the background pulling the strings on the black guy they have fronting as the CEO of their company.

    Seriously BE? The article consist of only seven images. Why are you paginating? You tell me this article could not fit on one page, 2 for the most? This is a bad practice. Instead of trying to boost numbers (hits, advertising, etc.) via clicks how about improving user experience?
