Actually, the way Mormons support one another in business is admirable.

Absolutely!

They had an interesting segment on the PBS news hour a while back on how the Civil Rights movement killed black businesses. During segregation, many blacks shopped at black-owned stores. After the Jim Crow laws were abolished, they thought they were "sticking it to Whitey" by shopping at the white stores.
