Agree. Why is it that as black folks, why do we think we have "arrived" when we acquire alot of the material shit that white folks own ??? Don't get me wrong, i want to see us all doing well but a lot of times when black folks get money they simply are brown versions of their white counterparts. You can be black, affluent and not be "crackerized" so to speak. The reality factor slaps alot of them in the face when they drive their paid for, expensive car and still get pulled over simply for being black, that right there is the reality check for their ass.
