The Business of Keeping the Trouble
July 25, 2010Posted by on
This morning, the Reverend Jesse Jackson appeared on Fox News Sunday. Why he was on the show, I’m not sure. Well, that’s not really true. We all know why he appeared. He is one of several “go to” people when there is a story about race relations in America. You know. A poverty pimp. But I would offer you this.
“There is (a) class of colored 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.”
This quote is not from some fringed partisan of today, but a prophetic and dominant figure in the African American community at the turn of the 20th century – Booker T. Washington.
You know what they say. If it walks like a duck and it talks like a duck — AFLAC!
