A good percentage of black men and women are way too race conscious. That all
they see is black & white. It's too bad, for if they didn't they could be as
successful as some of their black counterparts.
Charles Barkley quote:
"There are a lot of black people who are unintelligent, who don't have
success," Barkley said. "It's best to knock a successful black person
down 'cause they're intelligent, they speak well, they do well in school, and
they're successful. It's crabs in a barrel. ... We're the only ethnic group that
says, 'hey, if you go to jail, it gives you street cred.' "
The concept of "crabs in a barrel" isn't new, and it's universal. If
you've ever seen a bucket of crabs at the market, the ones at the bottom will
try to pull down the crabs that are closer to the top.
All you are accomplishing by doing what you are doing, is being that crab at the
bottom of the bucket.
