5. I used to think the same, and there's some truth to the matter

But the other part of the truth is that race is STILL very much a factor in our society. You can't whitewash it - and no, that's not an unintentional metaphor - and dismiss this country's race issues as just issues of class.

The only way to handle the solution is to take on both racism and classism, rather than trying to trade one for the other.
