Blacks are identified as "outsiders" because of their accents and because of the color of their skin. This group of "outsiders" forms a group... "congregation by segregation." By coming together in this way, the outsiders have a support system and an identity. Although they seem invisible to others, within the group dynamic they can share complex feelings and feel a sense of unity.
