There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the ***** race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the ***** to lose his grievances, because they do do not want to lose their jobs. ----Booker T. Washington
I believe if Mr. Washington were alive today he would say this applies to a majority of the "Black Leadership" we see today. ROLE CALL!! Farrakhan, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Rev. Wright and most certainly BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA.
We need REAL LEADERSHIP regardless of RACE...but not VICTIMS!!
