I agree OSA.  Alci, from what I know (based on those I know who have done it) about J&J and those other social groups, it's just a way for these blacks to believe they're in touch with the black community when they're only in touch with the blacks they rub shoulders with.  It is also a way to keep their kids mingling with the "right" black people.  I'm sure that mom would have the same concern if her son brought home a "'round da way" girl, and would still be running to put her child in J&J.

could we start a new group or are such groups doomed to be mired in petty politics/elitism?

Lol, of course.  But lots of well-to-do parents do that.  In some respects, it's just looking out for their best interest.  I wouldn't want my daughter to date a thug.

If your group is to "help" rich black kids, it's going to be viewed as elitist.

I think the problem is a disconnect between rich and "regular" black kids.  Rich does not always equal talented.

OK.  The point is, it wouldn't solve the problem.
