For the first time I'm not sure what to say here. Of, course I WANT to say something I don't know what.
The issue of poorer blacks being abandoned by those who moved out to the suburbs is always brought up in disscusions around me, but this phenomenon never applied to MY family history. They never were part of that "black flight". My mother grew up in N.Carolina and my father in Salisbury, Conn. and D.C, and I've lived in the suburbs of MD and VA since infancy.

Am I the "enemy From without" for not being able to relate?
