I don't think whites hate blacks because they're black, I think they are cautious around them, because their community as a whole is poor, and the high crime rate per capita is a by-product of poverty, in fact whites treat blacks better than poor whites, but a middle class black person in America is equal to a poor white person in most metrics

I think the long standing elite communities in older cities (NYC, Boston, Philly, Chicago) tend to be a little less welcoming than LA, San Fran, Atlanta. DC is a mixed bag since the political spectrum reaches far and wide.
The story of Donald Trumpís life, prior to the year 2000, is trying to break into NYCís elite society, and failing.

Denver. With a black population under 10%, they've had two black mayors. There is little overt racism here, though I'm not naive enough to say there's none.

Trying to understand why upperly-mobile blacks would want to rub shoulders with "elite" whites. Surely such blacks have more sense, taste, and class than that. Maybe they want to renounce their race and heritage? Very weird.

My understanding elite wealthy blacks have always been around rich whites, also there's a class of black people with lighter skin who believe they're better than darker skin black people, because they have more European ancestry, they have an organization called the Boule that grooms black men, which means Councillor to the king

they have a group called Jack and Jill , which was created to train rich black kids how to conduct themselves around rich whites, also grooms black kids to often only marry light skin blacks with money, or marry whites with money

Your judgmental statement is no different than white people thinking the reverse. Very sad that this attitude still lingers on both sides.

That being said there is certainly an elite white and black population (not sure why you wrote "elite"), but the fact of the matter is that many of this countries wealthiest politicians, business people, philanthropists, etc. are white, so those are the people you have to rub shoulders with if you want to a part of that society.

He seems to believe integration = self hate

He seems to believe segregation = self love

On the contrary. As a white person, I enjoy interfacing with blacks of all status.

It's the damnable and typically powerful whites who can't stop causing trouble, hence the desire to stay away from their type. The idea that blacks would sell their souls as such is unfathomable. I've thankfully never seen that.

I disagree, rich whites are good people, we live in a capitalist society, the only race that matters is green

Green is all that matters huh? What's that green going to mean to you at the end of your life? Aiming for the "Richest Corpse in the Cemetery" award?
