This Article concentrates on problems of black businessmen rather than those of all minority businessmen for 3 reasons: first, there are more statistics on the business and other aspects of black economic life than on other nonwhite minorities; secondly, the available statistics suggest that black Americans rank lowest on the totem pole of business activity in this country--lower than any other nonwhite minority except perhaps for American Indians; thirdly, many of the solutions suggested for remedying the problems of black business enterprise would apply to the similar problems that other minority groups have encountered.
