wait...what? Black ppl are not held back by religion. Black ppl are held up by other black ppl in a system that is not our own. Nothing to do w/ religion.
Wow and I thought I made a blanket statement. Religion in this country plays just as much a role in the brainwashing of blacks as it did when James Baldwin was writing about it. Surely, black people cannot be the entire or even half of the reason that other blacks are not able to achieve the american dream. If the system is not our own and it is structurally lacking in the ability to let minorities move further maybe it was designed that way.
