A Powerful Forewarning that Was Tragically Ignored and Just Look at the Results of it (a Huge Out of Wedlock Birth-Rate, Mass Incarceration, an Epidemic of Black Youth Unemployment, etc.)

“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.”  Booker T. Washington
