Back to the Future?

I myself don't want our society to return to the days of Negro ball leagues and/or a Negro press, but basketball great Larry Johnson seems to want to:
Knicks executive and former player Larry Johnson had a decidedly different but still strong reaction to the racially insensitive remarks Clippers owner Donald Sterling is alleged to have made.

On Saturday night, Johnson tweeted: “Black people your Focusing on the wrong thing. We should be focusing on having our own, Own team own League! To For Self!!’’

The initial indication was Johnson was calling for an all-African-American league complete with black ownership. It wasn’t the first time Johnson, who is black, concerned himself with the fact the NBA’s ownership is mostly white while its players are mostly black.
Maybe we could have our own little bifurcated society, hmm, Larry?  I know what we could call it.  It's a great little word that doesn't get much use anymore.  We could call it...
