These aspects of the black "subculture," together with the reality of continued racial oppression, powerlessness, and economic deprivation, give rise to a series of characteristics identified by Holden (1973) as creating a culture adverse to effective leadership, because it results in very high demands on the leadership but relatively low support. These cultural characteristics take the form of class tensions, manifested in the ritualistic condemnation of black leaders as "Uncle Toms" or "sell-outs" who have lost touch with the masses.

Fundamental to these concepts is an understanding of two basic characteristics of human nature: the rational tendency and the emotional need. Individuals and social groups require structure and a sense of order for the achievement of goals, and also demand to be treated with concern and respect. These two factors are critical to an understanding of why some leaders are effective while others make the effort but fail. A leader must balance attention to personal feelings against the need for achievement of individual and group tasks.
