more on black responsibility

The Black Commentator - Freedom Rider: Self Hatred at Harvard - Issue 132

i read the nytimes magazine article over the weekend and was, understandably, wary. yay that fryer is one of those 'exceptional' black folk who got a phd and is teaching at an ivy. (i've always found that employers always pause when they see that phd candidate thing on my resume.) but why is it that the brown folk who tend to agree with the hegemony get props and those of us who don't, who let our anger at the status quo float upwards, don't?

just asking.
