A Teachable Racial Moment: Why Do Black Folks Stick Together?

A Teachable Racial Moment: Why Do Black Folks Stick Together? | Identity (Self-in-world) | Scoop.it

"...the common heritage that most Black folks in this country share leads to what is called
“linked fate” among African Americans, a term explored in Michael C. Dawson’s book, Behind
the Mule: Race and Class in African American Politics. Linked fate means that, for many
African Americans, what happens to a Black individual is felt by many in the “racial” group,
whether that event is joyous or tragic.

 

This does not mean that others individuals who aren’t Black can’t feel joy or sorrow at
these events, but it does mean that Black folks feel particular emotions, as if the event
impacted our own families. Linked fate means that I consider forty million people to be
literal brothers and sisters."
