    Can making an significant amount of money change the way you view the Black struggle in America?

    In essence, do you think you could still view the struggle from the exactly same lenses if your economic situation worsen or improved?

    How many homeless, post here?

    How many who are working 2 jobs husband and wife, who do not have the luxury to sit at home and bang keys during working day hours?

    And What of the Black Underclass
    By Larry Pinkney

    With more and more banks failing, joblessness steadily rising, and housing foreclosures continuing to reach an all time high in the United States, the massive black underclass, which is generally ignored, hidden, and unnoticed; reels with indescribable economic and social pain and deprivation.

    Having been ruthlessly betrayed by the black elite and much of black intelligentsia in the 21st century, the plight of the black underclass in the U.S. is, in some ways, similar to the horrific existence suffered by the Dalit people (“untouchables”) within India’s notorious and ongoing de facto caste system. Indeed, the black underclass in this nation can be accurately described as the economic and social Dalits of 21st century ‘America.’

    Worsening a person's economic situation will usually always force her/him to look at the struggle. Personally, at this stage in my life, any improvement will force me to wonder if what I'm doing to acquire that improvement is in any way ultimately devastating to my well being and that of other people (especially African/Black people).
