For you Attorney General Eric Holder

Quote from a biography of Booker T. Washington, "My Larger Education, Being Chapters from My Experience" in Chapter V:

"In 1911, former slave Booker T. Washington prophetically wrote about "black leaders" like Cleaver, Jackson and Sharpton: "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.… There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well, because as long as the disease holds out they have not only an easy means of making a living, but also an easy medium through which to make themselves prominent before the public..."

I just found out that with three children and making less that 40K a year the govt' will subsidize my income and buy my food. Wow! Nice to know that the teachers are finally taken care of. I would rather gouge my eyes out than have a hand out like that from the American Idol President. I don't want to get trapped in the fucking system!
