Without question yes

The notion that if you are not like the "other" blacks, you are an exception and somehow more deserving and therefore will be shielded from the effects of racism

That is a myth

Ie blacks suffer because they don't talk, act, look "right" but that doesn't apply to me, I'm not ghetto ratchet, I know how to act, talk, dress and so racism doesn't affect me

Myth.

So despite your bootstraps, straightened hair, neutral clothes, speech and demeanor there's still a bias based on your skin color and facial features ... especially when it comes to allocating resources 

That is what racism is and every black should be concerned since it affects all of us, the exceptional black is a myth

Yes, we have to let it sink in

I'll admit I was raised in the grand tradition of assimilation, but in the same breath it was not done with the belief that blacks would somehow escape racism.  It was more like, "beat them at their own game" and show them that we were the superior ones.

I know JG, I got the twice as good speeches, but with a clear disclaimer.

I think it's harmful if a black person is deluded into believing that assimilating makes them better or superior to other blacks 

I also think it's healthy to retain afrocentricity/black cultural identity and not assimilate completely... a lot of the inferiority complexes we suffer from comes from assimilating into white culture while at the same time being excluded from white culture
