  1. This analysis of the Black middle classes from 1952 continues to offer fresh insights One cannot be familiar with the cultures of Historically Black Colleges in the South or the perspectives of Black media without having perennial eye opening moments from reading this book Often providing a scathing analysis, HBCUs are presented as inventing a false elite, and the Black media as inventing notions of political economy for the entire community which elevate the petty projects of Black Businesses a [...]


  2. i was always on my guard the whole time i was reading this perhaps frazier might not be interrogating his fundamental internalized racism as much as i imagine myself to be, but his bigger point in the grand scheme come incredibly close to my own maybe his writing is just an example of how critical black study in public discourse invokes an awkward interiority that unseemly blurs subject object just go with it the alternative ain t appealing, and is the primary a social problem but he doesn t see [...]


  3. This book certainly lives up to the shocking revelation part and sadly not much has changed since its publication in 1957, yea very deep Its alot of stuff that I already knew, but its roots are so disturbingly clownish that often when I was reading this on the El coming home my face was twisted as if I was sucking lemons


  4. A classic by famed Black sociologist E Franklin Frazier that provides a searing and honest assessment of the Black upper middle class The analysis is often blunt and hard hitting but intellectually honest.


  5. Extremely important, a must read Especially for Black Americans.Please read The World of Make Believe very carefully Though this book was written in 1955 virtually nothing has changed in regards to our middle class in 62 years This is not hyperbole Virtually nothing has changed Every sickness and neurosis that Dr Frazier outlined in this section is on full display in our every day reality as well as reality TV and YouTube, where black middle class women whine endlessly about white women stealing [...]




  6. Published in 1957, E Franklin Frazier s study analyzed the history and social an economic standing of black Americans of the middle class up to that point He at times he is scathing in his rebuke of the frivolous and delusional lifestyle of the deemed Black Bourgeoisie and explains how they separate themselves from others in the black community yet still are frustrated with their less than status to white Americans It s fascinating to read about important court cases, personalities and publicati [...]


  7. This book is very informative and opens your eyes to middle class black people I highlighted a lot of things to use later.


  8. To think this started off as me being curious what it really means to be bougie Frazier s study, originally published in 1957, still rings true today in some ways I think the line between the masses and the middle class has all but dwindled to a mere couple of dollars The values of the middle class are supposed to reflect the majority, soif one doesn t agree, is that a bad or good thing I think moral beliefs shouldn t be separated into black and white, it should simply be right and wrong I agree [...]


  9. Interesting book Good historical data and references, although I found Frazier s critique of the Black elite to be, well, outright disparaging and contentious I don t know much about his personal life other than the fact he was one of five children brought up in what may have been a middle class household, by his bank messenger father and housewife mother I wonder if such a harsh critique is the result of his personal knowledge of this particular group or superficial research However Frazier cam [...]


  10. This book is quite the read and worth the time for all individuals regardless of color or race Through the reading of this book one can learn a lot, widen their horizon and relate upon the issue of racism.




  11. The very best book on uncovering black life from an economic standpoint during the post antibellum period Excellent sociological framework.
