AND many Black folk who the TS is referring to grew up in big cities. He might as well have targeted the ones growing up in the Projects.
But that goes back to the class war.
Your are absolutely correct Run. It is more so a war of classes, but something that the TS is not taking into consideration is the fact he is talking about a group of people who have had to COMPLETELY construct their identity in a extremely hostile enviornment for hundreds of years. Not jumping on the "slavery" wagon, but it does contribute deep down in some ways and actions of the generations left from the ashes of it. But that is another discussion altogether.
