    TRANSLATED:
    51% is not black owed. 100% is black owned. 51% is controlling interest and is 49% away from being black owned.

  6. Marc King says:

    Paul Machira Think about it. 100% is MUCH better for us. I would accept 75% and above. We have been conditioned to lower our expectations. Think about it.
