Race is the reason we were brought here. The class issues that we face today has not always been the same, in fact during the 18th century many members of the "privi" class were the most revolutionary. Martin Delaney was born free, had an M.D. and he despised slavery as much as anyone enslaved and was willing to die for the cause. David Walker who was educated, free, and owned land and his own business died for the cause. The names can go on and on, the class issue was face today are apart of our conditioning which i think is sloppily treated by simple labor/class theories.

This only speaks to the treachery of the elite class at the expense of the masses.

There were not "many", yes there were blacks that owned slaves, especially in Louisiana but to say many is a stretch. But Blacks have been implicit in our own destruction since you can point to a beginning so this is actually common sense, but I would say the Black slaver had alot more than class issues.
