Is my class or race the basis of my identity? Well, there's more to the basis of my identity, I believe that goes beyond race and class. At first, I used to think it couldn't go any deeper than my race, but as I've grown, I've learned that some things are even more personal than that, more of what makes a person who they are.

That depends on a persons focus, and on their experiences growing up. If a person has experienced racism in their youth, balanced with an education that fosters a knowedge of self, they will have a healthy view and pride of race. If they have been hated due to their class, by those within the race, then they will have a focus towards socialism rather then capitalism and a classless society. As a child I was hated by family, in the rough side of town and despised by family who lived on the hill, and sometimes class hate can be worse then racial hate! Having an educational and media and urban environment fostered by a knowledge of self, I never returned the hate with hate, but grew to have a comitment to some betterment of our people as Black, even Asian and Australian Blacks, and an end to class; and unity in the entire community!

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
