Quote Of The Day — July 30, 2015

.
There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro 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 Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

Booker T. Washington, (April 5, 1856 – November 14, 1915)

      Indeed it has, Buck. Nothing has changed, in the last One Hundred Years. Even though there have been men and women of ability and integrity trying to do so~!
