specifically the quote
"Black isn't just a color. Black isn't just a race. It's a feeling and a place from which one feels isolated from the world of the governing elite.


Classism is the new racism"


How does the IC feel about this? Espcially in light of Pharrell's "New Black" interview and Sterling's comments

    Nope.

    Oblivious,disingenuous and comatose people run with this...

    Look at the type of laws being touted, vitriol being screamed..people being assaulted maimed and killed isnt not because people are looking at their paychecks

    the song is good but the quote at the end to me almost seems as an attack against black unity.

    White Trash always hated on the black man cause he felt there was someone lower then him by default regardless of accuracy. This is more attempts to marginalize the very specific issue of racism. The Dream eating it up cuz he thinking his money makes him more then black.

    An extremely ignorant premise. Sounds like something a pseudo-intellectual would spout. Any fool who believes that needs to take a course involving critical race theory.

    I 🤬 with The Dream but like many artists he should leave the social commentary to people who know what the hell they're talking about.

    I believe this.

    I believe that classicism is more prevalent within our community vs the world. but eeven poor white people would rather be poor and white than rich and black.

    That 🤬 sounds stupid. How can classism be the new racism when racism is still here, and lots of blacks have to deal with both racism and classism.

    What a stupid 🤬 thing to say.

    I think some celebrities thought that a few million and a couple handshakes made them think racism was behind them.

    Life is disappointing like that sometimes.

    This is seriously problematic.

    It aspires to merge disparate forms of oppression under the umbrella of the distinctive oppression that is racial oppression, with the aim of creating a broader-based solidarity against those who it supposes is the real enemy: the 1%.

    But what it will do is engulf racial oppression in a sea of other, more -- to non-blacks -- sympathy-arousing forms of oppression.
