Booker T. Washington basically predicted Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson in 1911 when he said,
"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."
since Feb 16th 2012 18 17 year old black males have been killed in Chicago alone. why haven't we heard any outrage about that? simple, nothing to gain politically.
