Wells Fargo to Buy Homes For Black People
Leo A. Williams | 6/15/2018, 6 a.m.
It is amazing how many educated black people of today are so willing to accept handouts from white institutions.
In 1900, Booker T. Washington launched the National Negro Business League meeting for the first time in Boston, Massachusetts. One hundred and fifteen Delegates attended from 20 states in the South to promote black-owned businesses, to do the same thing that Wells Fargo, a white-owned institution wants to do for black people of today.
Washington believed that black people would succeed through industrial education, self help, and business ownership in our community— and it worked. However, the Urban League and the NAACP diverted the thinking of the black community to that of how white America thinks (brainwashing), which is a method to systematically change attitudes or altering beliefs from what Booker T. Washington had for Black America.
