Reply to "Does MLK Get A Bad Rap?"

I am a bit short on time here but later tonight if I have the time and will power to go deeper into this two schism and their relevance to today I will but for now I will say the crutch of Malcolm and MLK debate is rooted in religion and upward mobility of the black man and woman from those perspective. W.E.B. Dubois and Booker T. Washington schism is more rooted in the action of Black men and women outside the realm of religion and doing things for ourselves based on that. Dubois espoused his philosophy of the talented tenth which I made a post about some time ago and Booker T. Washington while not necessarily opposing that philosophy leaned more towards working with white folks.

This is what we have today, Black men and women are more divided alone the lines of Washington and Dubois than we are MLK and Malcolm and this is what make the schism between those two men more relevant today. This of course is short and sweet and hopefully I will have the time and will to go deeper later. Lastly, the focus on Malcolm and MLK is so great because very few know anything about Dubois and Washington
