Race Pimpin' Ain't Easy (But It Pays)

There's an important quote from Booker T. Washington that should be taken into consideration by the Jesse Jacksons, Al Sharptons, Louis Farrakhans, and yes, the Jeremiah Wrights of America:

"There is another 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."
-Booker T. Washington, 1911


The race-baiters must perpetuate the vision of institutionalized American racism (the very demon they claim to be battling) or they would serve no role in our society. Why do you think they flock to otherwise insignificant communities (ahem, Jena) whenever there is a chance to exploit the issue of race in the most opportunistic fashion?

Washington, not Wright, should be called Jeremiah, because his words are as foretelling as anything Jerusalem's broken-hearted prophet ever said.
