I do agree that economic status is a factor but I would not ally myself with some one just because they share the same economic class as me.Money is just a one of the factors of power in the US. There other aspects like connections,political affiliation,education etc,.
But I dare not to think that whites would view us the same just because you share the same economic class as them,they surely would take you more seriously if you have more money , but when you have a higher income what kind of business are you in,Blacks in the US do not have a vast array of corporate rapport.
Would you share the same corporate field,same union ,same fraternity,
Even with local issues that arise in the white and black community you see the difference when blacks are trying to make a change.
whites go to the town hall meetings, most blacks go to the community center.
They were rich Creoles ,blacks,and mulattoes in Cuba who fought for independence but the blacks and rich blacks at that still ended up not having that much political influence.
@ViciousRidah- As always, you bring up some great points. When I speak on economics, I'm not saying that whites accept us strictly for economic reasons, but that they view us differently. I do think that it is one of the main reasons that the seperation exists. Economics is what is dividing everyone now. Even white communities won't acccept their own, if they are not in the same financial class. Something similar to the elite mindset. Even in the black community, when a black person gets paid, do they typically stay in the same neighborhoods, no most of them move into the upper scale white neighborhoods and never look back. Back in the day, when there was segregation, they couldn't do that. Wealthy black people were forced to stay in the community and their financial resources would stay in the community and help. Now we have no uppper income bracket. Desegregation was the biggest destroyer of the black community than anything else, except for crack.
There will always be those that stay divided due to race, there is no doubt about that. However, I travel often and I see more neighborhoods that are racially mixed that ever before. I don't think that people necessarily live next to one another because they want to, but that economics dictates it. White flight still exists.
