dallast313 comments on Charles Barkley: ‘Unintelligent’ Blacks ‘Brainwashed’ To Keep Successful Black Men Down: Attempts to force conformity amongst those leaving "the group" to ascend (or descend) the class ladder is a universal condition of humanity. There isn't a poor or ethnically isolated community in the world that doesn't give someone the business for leaving it and adopting mainstream norms. Just as a well-to-do daughter/son is pilloried for dating "the help". This is magnified if the mainstream community is of a different ethnicity and/or with a checkered relationship to the poorer community. This happens all over the world. The only difference is, there isn't a socially reinforced, "[Insert ethnic group] is inherently bad because... [insert universal human condition]" due to the suppression of culture.
