Fascinating take on what the author calls Elite Blacks; that is, African-Americans who have attended Ivy League Schools, have attained positions of power and responsibility, and live in tony suburbs.

I say this: both your President-Elect, and his loudmouth wife, fall into this category.
As an interesting aside, yesterday at President-Elect Obama's Press conference he was surrounded by his flock of economic/financial advisers who will, supposedly, give him excellent advice on how to correct the nation's troubled economy. I noticed that not one of them was African-American, and when I read this article, I could see why.
