Reply to "Should Affluent Blacks Stay or Flee Blighted Communities."

quote:
What upsets me is when Black people leave predominately Black communities, and then after living among Whites for a period of time, begin to adopt the same nauseating attitudes as Whites. After awhile, these Blacks, who are obviously suffering from a severe case of amnesia, can't go anywhere where "those kind of people" are around, they can't eat in "those kind of restaurants" or travel in "those parts of town." Please. You used to be one of "those kind of people," and you need to remember that. Besides, if it weren't for "those kind of people," America would not be where it is today. Many of America's highly-esteemed past and present talent comes from "those kind of neighborhoods." So loose the snooty attitude. That's all I have to say.


I think I understand what you are saying, Rowe, but I suppose some of that is just a matter of exposure. Once you've seen better, tasted better, experienced better, etc, you really can't go back to whatever you were used to before and be satisfied. I think that's only natural and not really indicative of morphing into White people.
