You know, it's not the world that was my oppressor, because what the world does to you, if the world does it to you long enough and effectively enough, you begin to do to yourself. — James Baldwin

Remember how blatant racism used to be back in the day?

Nowadays, it's much more covert--just as pervasive, but strategically surreptitious.

And remember how whites used to caricature blacks?  These days, they do it in subtle ways.  But they really don't have to.  Thanks to people like Tyler Perry, Lee Daniels, and 50 Cent, we get along just fine doing it to ourselves.
