The message is not just in the words.

I HIGHLY ANTICIPATE EACH MONTHLY EDITION OF BLACK ENTERPRISE, but was very disappointed with your May 2006 issue. After reading the first 25 pages, I laid the magazine down with the front cover displaying the three pastors and the back cover displaying the Patron tequila advertisement. When I awoke in the morning and looked at the whole picture, I thought, 'What an oxymoron.' What type of message are you sending to your readers? It's OK to go to church and then drink tequila? Your advertising department needs to take a better look at the statistics concerning how fast food and alcohol affect the black community. The numbers are increasing, just like the numbers of blacks in prison. Wake up!
