Our Society is One Big Class System

Spotted on Roundup Russy’s Blog

I do like the idea of our youth watching the stories of successful African Americans, I just hope this doesn’t end up being a 30 minute hip hop video with “Ballin’ for no reason”. It would be great if it shows the sacrifices and hardships it took to get where they are now.

Not really a fan of this new term OVERCLASS either..

What do you think?

    I liked the segments and I felt they conveyed a postive message to a certain degree. However the term 'overclass' that was used throughout kinda left a bad taste in my mouth.I can't quite put my finger on it but I kinda felt like it puts those who have made it on some type of exaggerated pedastal.Which in my opinion is not needed by any person mentioned in this piece.I am well aware that what they have accomplished is no small feat by any stretch of the imagination.These are truly some of the most intelligent and gifted people of our generation but I feel this term just further segregates the ideaology of uplifting ourselves to a different level of social awareness.
