The Battle Of The Black Race: Is There A Division In The Black Race Between the Bourgeois Blacks And Urban Blacks?

Today on Powertalk with Lorraine Jacques-White, we took a closer look at the division of the black race.  Earlier this week we spoke with nationally recognized MSNBC Journalist Toure` about his new book “Are You Afraid of Post Blackness?”.  His book prompted our discussion today about the black race being divided into two different classes.

Some people feel there is a great divide between the Educated Black People and Under Privileged Black People.  Our listener Hasan called in and stated “Black people have forgotten their roots”.  Many people agree with Hasan, and feel like the black race is divided.

Do you feel that there is a division in the Black Community amongst the Bourgeois Black People vs Urban (Less Fortunate) Blacks?
