...look back at segregation, and how it's essentially a class issue, the ghettos resulting from rich blacks leaving their uncouth mongrel brothers behind.
Integration on Chicago's SouthSide didn't start out as a class issue. When middle class white saw their property values fall, as middle class blacks moved in, they moved to the suburbs.
That left middle class, educated blacks for a period of time.
Then, a dramatic influx of rural,mainly uneducated southern blacks, pushed into the middle class black neighborhoods. Crime increased dramatically, with drugs and prostitution flourishing.
What did the middle class blacks do? They segregated themselves from the lower class blacks and moved out to the all white suburbs.
Class has always played a major role in black integration in the City of Chicago. But, who talks about black-on-black discrimination on a forum where most of the participants from the US are white.
When Valerie Jarret ( black adviser fot Obama) lived in Chicago, she didn't live in the Robert Taylor Homes, nor did she live in the Cabrini projects.
She segregrated herself from poor , lower class blacks.
Was she racist towards her own people? No! But she did discriminate, as was her right as a US citizen.
And on it goes...
