What year did he say we'd become a permanent underclass?? 2013.. what's going on this year. Sequestration is in effect this year affecting the governmental sector which hires more Blacks than the private sector... this is just another death knell in all of the things he's talked about in the lecture posted here.
The "backdoor" tactic, [something you can't get Black people to understand for nothing in the world], although other groups in America may only have to concern themselves with who or what is trying to get in the front door, WE need tp make sure we know who or what is trying kick our front door down AND who or what is trying invade us from the backdoor as well.
African Americans have become waaaaay too complacent, and it leads most of us to live the fantasy world that things are so different now than the used to be, when in reality, things are not all that different than they used to be, just the way in which those that want to break us as a people go about it has changed and the tactics that are being used to achieve that goal.
