I've noticed that many of us have to put on a different mask in our white dominated work place to sort of be able to "fit in" well, if you will, with our counterparts. I don't think that it's "turning white" or assimilating, but merely playing the game with them.

I will say that in speaking with persons of older generations, that it seems that the unity and black pride is not what it used to be. You'll find that many ederly people whom lived in an age that was segregated, actually prefer those times over nowadays simply because blacks seemed to have a better hand in controlling their own; there were more black havens and buisnesses, and despite the obvious hardships, the all black atmosphere was marvelous.
