A dirty, dark secret

From Michelle Obama’s Mirror.

I’m sure you all heard about the “Dirty, Dark Secret” that leaked out last week without official sanction:

Wait, no; I’m just messing with you. I’m talking about this “dirty, dark secret” revealed last week by Sir Charles Barkley:

 He said WHAT?

As I tell my white friends, we as black people, we’re never going to be successful, not because of you white people, but because of other black people. When you’re black, you have to deal with so much crap in your life from other black people. It’s a—It’s a dirty, dark secret; I’m glad it’s coming out. It comes out every few years.

“Not because of you white people, but because of other black people” ??? Can he say that?

…One of the reasons we’re never going to be successful as a whole, because of other black people. And for some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not black enough. If you go to school, make good grades, speak intelligent, and don’t break the law, you’re not a good black person. And it’s a dirty, dark secret…

I said, you know, when young black kids, you know, when they do well in school, the loser kids tell them, ‘Oh, you’re acting white.’ The kids who speak intelligently— They tell them, ‘You’re acting white.’ So it’s a dirty, dark secret in the black community.

    It’s no secret. When a person identifies one’s effort to better himself as “trying to be white” then that person has a racist view of society. Charles is calling it the way it is. As much as American society and government spend billions to end racism for the benefit of blacks, we all need to fully understand: the very people that all this effort is for – are racist themselves, to their own detriment.
