I think that Nou Ra is judging the U.S. culture based on that of Morrocco, rather than just looking at the differences.
and the difference is that America has more freedom, or individual independence, and morrocco is more orthodox and focuses more on the family.
That's why you see a larger stratification, but that is also why there are probably more people living above the poverty line in the U.S. than in Morrocco.
The Ghetto's might be a litte rougher or less family oriented, and the country might be segregated a good deal economically, but that doesn't mean deprived of a rich culture.
I think Nou Ra maybe is yearning for a little homelife after his long tour with the Roots and maybe needs a hug from his mama
