Well how do you measure "success"? Unlike you, I am not so naive as to be aware of both race and class prejudices. And it's not a coincidence as most Black reactionaries come from the Negro bourgeoisie.<quoted text>
You mean sucessful Blacks. Uh huh. Shame on them right?
On the other hand, we're not as backward as is white America. At least our poor and working class have better sense than to be conservative and to vote against themselves.
In fact, even our bourgeois and petty bourgeois are not as backward. Far fewer even of our elite are dumb enough to be reactionaries. Cornel West, Angela Davism MIchelle Alexander, Paul Robeson, Martin Luther King are just a few of the historim members of our privileged classes who are/were progressive and on the case for social justice.
But it is not a coincidence that a Condie Rice or a buffoon like Herman Cain ar emore likely to come from our elite than from the Black working class.
Unfortunately, the political culture of white America is so BACKWARD (largely thanks to racism) that even millions of your poor, working class and lower middle classes are backward enough to be rightwingers
