    Why do some black people call other black people names or make fun of black people that try to get ahead?

    Dude worded it quite well. Mine is: Wealth is a state of mind.

    Really, fighting against adversity is what makes living things stronger, without the challenges you fail. Perhaps you should point the finger at those who are making it too easy instead, it's more logical.

    Some idiots get jealous of others and there are haterade drinkers in every "race," but on the bigger scheme of things black people are most certainly not against other blacks getting ahead.

    Our society and educated as defined by our society.

    Actually, it's a very good point and you have not answered in spite of thinking you did. Society isn't something that is the same for every person, nor is the definition of success or education the same.
