Jackson: GM Needs Black Customers



          WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) -- The Rev. Jesse Jackson says General
          Motors Corp. would improve its business if it had more black
     customers
          and executives.

          ``Inclusion leads to growth,'' Jackson told investors Tuesday at
GM's
          annual meeting for shareholders. ``There are simply underserved
        markets
          in America.''

          Jackson, whose Rainbow/PUSH coalition owns shares of GM, said
          there were strong business arguments for GM to become more
inclusive.
          He said that GM could add sales if it did a better job of selling
in           urban
          areas, noting that Washington, D.C. had about 600,000 residents
but           no
          GM dealerships.
