A Black History Month Rally to Hold McDonald’s Accountable for Decades of Systemic Racism (Chicago, IL) – “The McDonald’s Corporation is being sued by Black current and former franchisees, employees and executives for decades of racial discrimination. McDonald’s has denied the Black franchisees the same opportunities as White operators and continually steered them to economically depressed and dangerous areas where low-volume sales, high rent and operating costs guaranteed failure.

McDonald’s pretends it is a recruiter and developer of Black talent, but it profits from its Black consumer base and maintains a two-tier system that sent unsuspecting Black owners on “financial suicide missions” from which there was little chance of success. 

Legendary Chicago organizer, Wallace “Gator” Bradley “The Urban Translator,” is calling on McDonald’s to use Black History Month 2021 as a time to make things right, end the systematic racism that has denied Black franchisees equal opportunities and change the way it treats its Black employees. “

The rally will be held on Feb. 22, 2021 at the McDonald’s Corporate Headquarters 110 North Carpenter Street Chicago, Illinois 60607. It will begin at 11:00 am.

Let me tell you how we got to this point and draw the Really Black conclusion. In the fall of 2014, I met the Byrd Brothers, Darrell and James F. Byrd Jr., Black McDonald’s franchisees at a Memphis Grizzlies basketball game. They told me that they had eight (8) McDonald’s stores, four (4) each, and McDonald’s was forcing them to sell four (4) stores, two (2) each, to Fred Tillman, who’s White and at that time was the largest McDonald’s USA franchisee.
