As some black and brown people migrate out of low income status, and into the status of the so call middle and upper class, there appears to emerge two separate people. As a consequence, the world views between low income people and middle/upper class people appear strikingly different and contentious in nature. So much so, that there seems to be a sort of class conflict emerging between the two. Yet no matter how much wealth the middle and upper class people are able to obtain, in the eyes of a Donald Sterling and the likes, they are still black and brown folks who must be treated exactly the same as the lower class.
Eric Mann of The Labor Community Strategy Center discuss with Dr. Harry Edwards the many apparent conflicts, contradictions, and confusions, among black and brown folks over the emergence of a black and brown middle and upper capitalist class.
