I would probably blame the 50-40 years olds for dropping the damn torch.
Let me make sure I have the right age group but its probably about spot on
 
as someone in this age group i tend to agree...we bought into the hype a lil too hard since we were able to actually get into the door...


I remember in our 20s, we said our parent's generation dropped the torch . Our guess was that things were still too fresh and painful for them to be able to talk about and teach our generation about the history. I wonder what the next generation of 20-somethings will say about this one.

eta: grateful that my parents were willing to share painful history with us.

i was gonna say they (our parents) dropped the torch and they did on a certain level, imo because they bought into integration and segregation from blacks of lower classes than them.  but i think our generation was the first to actually not experience/live thru the more blatant physical forms of racism and we collectively put our gaurds down a lil too much, imo.  i can admit that.

we were always protesting and marching for/against something. I guess that's what all college kids do though. But we thought we were making a difference.

This.  We were very active back in the 80's and 90s.  And I think our generation is filled with many less "new blacks" if you will.  We didn't personally mix with them like these kids do these days.  We still were together with us.
