What Happens When a Nation goes 365Black: One Million People Apply for 50,000 Jobs at McDonald’s

The United States of America has officially adopted the marketing strategy of McDonald’s. We are a 365Black nation.

We are a nation that worries about the effect shutting down Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac might have on the 50 percent of its employees who are minority (what about the 50 percent who aren’t?). We are a nation that worries about shutting down government services because Black people receive a disproportionate share of them. 

We are a nation that worries about shutting down government agencies, because Black people are disproportionately employed there (the private sector is finding it increasingly difficult to employ Black people):

Opening up the housing market evolved from anti-discrimination laws to the right to government-supplied decent housing, and if that option was unobtainable, government would subsidize private housing or mandate (and guarantee) below-market home mortgages.  Laws banning racial discrimination in employment were similarly supplanted by government jobs to soak up black unemployment (blacks now comprise one out of every five non-postal federal employees).  Head Start replaced the local babysitter and mandated integration became oversize bureaucracies to assure equal outcomes.  In cities with sizable black populations, e.g., Detroit or Newark, municipal jobs became life-savers.  Washington has also repeatedly extended unemployment benefits, a benefit that disproportionately helps blacks given their higher levels of joblessness. In a nutshell, for many African Americans “civil rights” has come to mean government generosity, a generosity increasingly financed by borrowing. 

McDonald’s coined the term 365Black as part of a new marketing strategy in a bid to appeal to 13 percent of population that is Black. Bragging that 20 percent of their workforce is Black (50 percent is minority or women), McDonald’s represents the goals of what a Black-Run America (BRA) nation would look like. Here is a PDF Fact Sheet of McDonald’s commitment to achieving 365Black in owner/operator, employees, and agenda.

Judging by the demographic of the public workforce, the government mirrors McDonald’s commitment to 365Black.

Named Fortune’s Best Company for Minorities in 2003 and 2004, McDonald’s was once a great first job for high school students trying to learn about responsibility, saving, professionalism, and time management (study to enter college, while working). Now McDonald’s jobs are for those Black people that don’t graduate high school or value any of the aforementioned qualities such a fast food first-job should instill.

Did they apply for a job at McDonald’s?

Instead, McDonald’s is a career for these largely unemployable Black people (hey, the government can’t shoulder all the work in employing Black people). We have asked before why Black people think the future is going to better, when the majority of Black people aren’t qualified to be greeter at Wal-Mart.

You recall last week the violence that occurred at the Cleveland McDonald’s, where a Black person ran over three Black people trying to fill out a job application. Well, Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge.com reports that more than 1 million applications were submitted for the 50,000 part-time jobs McDonald was offering nationwide:

This is what the US economy has been reduced to: McDonalds reports that as part of its employment event to hire 50,000 minimum wage, part-time (mostly) workers, subsequently raised to 62,000 it received a whopping 1 million applications, or a Tim Geithner jealousy inducing 6.2% hit rate (h/t X. Kurt. OSis). Alas, the US economy is now so pathetic that the bulk of the population will settle for anything. Literally anything. And the saddest part: over 938,000 applicants were turned away. Here’s hoping to Burger King needs a few million janitors in the immediate future too. And yes, aside from reality, things in America are really recovering quite nicely.
From Bloomberg:

McDonald’s and its franchisees hired 62,000 people in the U.S. after receiving more than one million applications, the Oak Brook, Illinois-based company said today in an e-mailed statement. Previously, it said it planned to hire 50,000.

The April 19 national hiring day was the company’s first, said Danya Proud, a McDonald’s spokeswoman. She declined to disclose how many of the jobs were full- versus part-time. McDonald’s employed 400,000 workers worldwide at company-owned stores at the end of 2010, according to a company filing.

Earlier this month, McDonald’s said sales at stores open at least 13 months climbed 2.9 percent in the U.S. after it attracted more diners with items such as beverages and the Chipotle BBQ Bacon Angus burger. The fast-food chain has about 14,000 stores in the U.S. and more than 18,000 abroad. About 80 percent of all McDonald’s stores are franchised.

Knowing McDonald’s commitment to diversity and Black hiring (just consult this PDF), do we even need to guess what percentage of the 62,000 new hires are Black? How about what percentage of the 1 million applicants were Black?

The United States of America is done unless people in positions of power admit the massive problem we have in our midst. Knowing that no such people exist and knowing that attaining positions of power in America means a total commitment to Black-Run America (BRA), it’s time to point out the obvious that can be discerned from this story of 1 million people applying for work at McDonald’s:

Protect yourself and your family over the summer of 2011. 

Rising gas prices means people with fixed incomes (think those 18 percent of Americans who subsist on government entitlements) will have less money to pay for food. Wal-Mart is already saying consumers are running out of money and they have stated inflation is coming.

We are approaching our two-year anniversary of being online here at Stuff Black People Don’t Like. Going from a blog that was an obvious – an inferior – spoof of Stuff White People Like, we’ve built up a loyal following, published a book and are preparing to publish yet another book that coincides with the release of Thor.

If you enjoy this Web site, we ask that you do two things: post links to us at other Web sites and in forums and send our site to your friends via Twitter, FaceBook and E-mail. It’s too late wake up most people for what is coming.

When you read stories of the Black middle-class fleeing large, majority Black urban areas (like Detroit, Atlanta, Birmingham,and Philadelphia) everything you need to know about the Black Undertow is available in their actions.

Over the next week, this Web site will sporadically post old stories from the past two years (maybe a few new ones). We have to finish Hollywood in Blackface, a book that is near and dear to our hearts. Film and television have been one of the primary mechanism for manufacturing false images of Black people to the American consumer, and in this book you’ll learn exactly when that moment started.

So, if you enjoy the site, post links to us everywhere on the Internet. Send an E-mail with our stories to your favorite pundit (or least favorite). Hey, you can even buy SBPDL Year on Amazon and write a customer review. It’s available on Kindle now too.

We’ve developed a brand at SBPDL. Some might like it; some might hate us.

Just know that Black-Run America is collapsing all around us, and that an opportunist like Donald Trump has shown that courage is the only ally needed in bringing it down.

The United States has become a 365Black. Like McDonald’s, this is unhealthy. As Morgan Spurlock showed in Supersize Me, going 365Black is incredibly bad for ones health.

Let this be a metaphor for what going 365Black means for a nation.
