But, Uno, I can't beleive that's so. If you've ever read anything that I've written, you know that my philosophy is that Black folk cannot afford physical or fiscal detachment. We are joined together by our skin tone regardless of any socioeconomic status. So, with that we still gotta be about pulling the next person up. Ask Oprah.....to some folk we still "niggaz" and will treat you that way (who, by the way, understands the importance and the responsibility of pulling somebody else up - Oprah that is)
You can try and fend for yourself and actually I encourage it. But whatever success you obtain they are not void of the strengths of Black folk or without the stigma of Black folk.

What's the alternative?

>become more individual, more seperated
I cannot agree with that. (But you still my boy though)
Until we all get ovah' ain nobody goin' no where.
