I feel like a lot of black people feel that successful blacks owe them something, or need to always remind them how real they are. And I think it pressures successful blacks to do stupid shit that's unnecessary out of fear that they'll look like an Uncle Tom or some shit. For example, look how many N.O. people will say shit like "Wayne can't come back to the hood" or whatever rapper and their hometown. Why are these rappers over 30, millionaires, and still yellin what gang they represent? Why do rappers and athletes go to places where poor people go KNOWING they're targets, when common sense tells them not to?
Do you think the black community's pressure and requirements of other blacks hurts them to an extent?
