I am writing at this time to share something with you that may sound a bit strange, and that is, how to deal with black on black prejudice. It is amazing how that many of us get so upset at the prejudice of Whites, but hardly ever say anything about the prejudice that we often have toward one another in our own race.

What is this black on black prejudice anyway? This phenomenon raised its ugly head during the Barack Obama's campaign for president. It is when you, as a Black man, have any disdain for anything that is run, controlled, operated, or serviced by Black people. It is when you have this stupid something in your head that says "White is right," or at least better than Black, and you count everything that Blacks do as second best or second rate simply because it is done by Blacks. This reminds me of a story an old saint shared with me. He said that back in his day they would joke about this phenomenon by saying the White man's ice was colder than the Black man's ice.
