The return of separate but equal.

Maybe you already heard or maybe you don’t care, but Calypso Louie was in town urging African-Americans to separate themselves from mainstream culture:

High-profile examples of success like Oprah Winfrey, Sen. Barack Obama, Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice give blacks a false impression of success, Farrakhan said.

As a result, middle class black America has gotten too comfortable with the trappings of the American dream, he told the approving audience.

“A life of ease sometimes makes you forget the struggle,” he warned. “It’s becoming a plantation again, but you can’t fight that because you want to keep your little job.”

    Reverend Farrakhan only wants black people to be less redneck.

    Good idea.

    Let’s face it – even rednecks should act less redneck.
