The myth of black women profiting at the expense of black men is the oldest rap around.
(Johnnetta Betsch Cole (b. 1936), African American educator. As quoted in I Dream a World, by Brian Lanker (1989).
At this time, Cole was the President of Spelman College, a historically African American women's institution.)
In the United States the whites speak well of the Blacks but think bad about them, whereas the Blacks talk bad and think bad about the whites. Whites fear Blacks, because they have a bad conscience, and Blacks hate whites because they need not have a bad conscience.
