USA: HUD Secretary Attacks Black Victimhood

“They [black leaders] have created an industry,” (Alphonso) Jackson, who is black, told NewsMax. 'If we don’t become victims, they have no income. They have no podium.'”

"'They [black leaders] have created an industry,' Jackson, who is black, told NewsMax. 'If we don’t become victims, they have no income. They have no podium.' Rather than confronting real issues that face blacks, African-American leaders suggest that 'it’s racism that’s stopping everything that we’re doing,' Jackson said.

"'They are in the business of making excuses,' he said. 'White folks have nothing to do with the fact that seven out of every 10 black children born in this country are born out of wedlock,' Jackson said. Nor do they have anything to do 'with that fact that we have more black males in prison than we do in college.'

"While racism still exists, 'Young black kids are getting every opportunity that they need, just like every other kid,' Jackson said. 'I think in 2006 to say that everything is the fault of our brothers and sisters of the lighter hue is ridiculous.'

"Until blacks 'begin to focus in on the serious problems that we have in our communities, and begin to try to solve those problems in the most positive manner that we can, we’re not helping ourselves,' Jackson said."

Booker T. Washington said:

"There is another 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 do not 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."
