And it makes me think when I'm successful how will I change things or try to actually uplift the black community as well as the world. The part about black people thinking working for black people is inferior then the foreigners come in a make mad money off us is SOOOO true ei Korean hairstores.


this passage stood out for me as well. 

i have sooo many quotables from this book. it's amazing how timeless it is, the only thing that makes me remember it's an old book is "negro", everything else is 100% spot on.

my favorite part so far, is when he spoke about the HBCUs having white presidents, I had no idea. And how the white presidents didn't allow the black faculty in their homes. and he was asking why in 3 generations they hadn't educated a black person well enough to take on the role as president. i was all on the elliptical in the gym like PREACH!LOL.. i know i got a few stares. 


the other part that struck me was the PhD thing and how a lot of them lose touch with real issues. i think this is the main culprit affecting our black intellectual population to this day. kids would rather listen to rap than read sometimes because black intellectuals aren't writing books they can relate to.
