I had this discussion with a friend recently.  Black people in positions of power aren't "looking out" the same way they did back in the day.  My mother worked for the Fed. Government.  She was the first black female supervisor in her region back in the 70's, and she said she made sure every time there was a position open, if a black person applied, she hired them.  She got her position because the old black guy in the mail room showed her a job announcement that she wasn't even supposed to see.  Seems like these days, people have forgotten how they got to where they are in the first place.  You may have worked hard and pulled yourself by your own bootstraps, but you still have to acknowledge that to these white folks, you're just another n* --so why not help out the next person?  Upper class black people seem to segregate themselves from lower class blacks as if white America really shares in that distinction.  It's really sad.  We love to talk about helping our brothers and sisters, but let them put some subsidized housing up in Buckhead...they would burn that place down before that was allowed to happen.

truth.  not to say everything was perfect then but from what my gramma says we were a more cohesive community then.  Didn't matter if u were new to the neighborhood or not.  We were like 1st generation, non papers having Messican's (yes she said Messican's with a capital M) back then.   We were more likely to watch out for each other.

No disrespect to y'alls people and my mom says the same thing but this is exactly what I meant by yt ppl using us and telling us we're not talking about you, we're talking about the nig.gers.  That entire generation bought that sh*t hook line and sinker while the man kept his foot firmly on their necks just like they did the nig.gers.
