Booker T. Washington...

From David P. in W.V. ...

"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." --former slave, educator, author and orator Booker T. Washington (1856-1915)

Stay safe.
