Call in to speak with the host

We have all heard the concept of crabs in a barrel.  Many say that this is the mentality of blacks and we can’t support each other in success and even at times will pull one another down to prevent it.  Is it because we have a “save our self-mentality” or is it “self-hate?”   Either way, why do we have such a hard time getting out the “barrel.”  Is this behavior a learned condition or genetic?  The bottom line is that blacks cannot work together for a greater cause without pulling each other down.  If things do not change, this will be the demise of us all.
