Booker T. Washington

Booker_T__Washington
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.

  1. Smart and handsome, I like that. There is nothing like a intelligent and handsome man. Now, i don’t like peanut butter like that, but a man on an intellectual level is attractive. Go Booker.

  2. I am a huge fan of of Mr. Washington. He was an excellent educator and his legacy will definately live on. However, in response to Joseph A. Perez Mr. Washington had nothing to do with the 99 uses of the peanut plant. George Wasghinton Carver on the other hand does. You mixed the to up.

  3. Booker T washington i know by discovering the 99 uses for the peanut plant , however didnt invent the most used substance peanut butter. This Article goes in more depth on explaining Washinton’s personal demanor and attitude. From this short essay i can agree and see the truth in it as an individual can be settled in advertising wrongs to formulate a soultuion.

  4. that was true yesterday and it is still true today.
