Green Isn't the Only Color That Matters: Racism and the Black Middle & Upper Class
Yet, not only is racism a problem for those who haven't "made it," in the common parlance; indeed, it remains a problem, even for those who have: an important point to understand, given the tendency for even well-meaning people to insist that in the U.S., "the only color that matters is green." As it turns out, nothing could be further from the truth.
Though it may seem counterintuitive, racism might actually be more of a unique burden for the black middle class and affluent, than for the black poor.
