Is It Time to Assimilate?

Is It Time to Assimilate?

Should full assimilation into American society be a greater priority for Black Americans than the overzealous pursuit of cultural acceptance?

Key Points:

  • Are upper and middle-class Black Americans afraid of their own people, the large black underclass? 

  • Before we can achieve any major improvement in the social and educational status of Blacks, they must develop a frank process of self-examination to replace the current unwillingness to look objectively at destructive behavioral norms.  

  • Values count more than race in today’s economic picture
