Arlie Russell Hochschild

Rap actually took root in the Negro community, and then in the Hispanic community, long before it impacted on the larger American community as a whole.
The black community now in many ways divided itself the way the larger white community divides itself, over class issues. And that race is no longer the bond that it once was. That's one of the prices you pay for progress.
