W.E.B. Du Bois, "The Talented Tenth" Excerpt

"And so we come to the present—a day of cowardice and vacillation, of strident wide-voiced wrong and faint hearted compromise; of double-faced dallying with Truth and Right. Who are to-day guiding the work of the Negro people? The "exceptions" of course. And yet so sure as this Talented Tenth is pointed out, the blind worshippers of the Average cry out in alarm; "These are exceptions, look here at death, disease and crime—these are the happy rule." Of course they are the rule, because a silly nation made them the rule: Because for three long centuries this people lynched Negroes who dared to be brave, raped black women who dared to be virtuous, crushed dark-hued youth who dared to be ambitious, and encouraged and made to flourish servility and lewdness and apathy. But not even this was able to crush all manhood and chastity and aspiration from black folk. A saving remnant continually survives and persists, continually aspires, continually shows itself in thrift and ability and character. Exceptional it is to be sure, but this is its chiefest promise; it shows the capability of Negro blood, the promise of black men . . . . Is it fair, is it decent, is it Christian to ignore these facts of the Negro problem, to belittle such aspiration, to nullify such leadership and seek to crush these people back into the mass out of which by toil and travail, they and their fathers have raised themselves?"

Discrimination: Forever A Problem

Discrimination: Forever A Problem | Discrimination | Scoop.it

The Progressive Era had many problems dealing with discrimination. This consisted of race, gender, and money. Many African Americans were judged because of their skin, and immigrants were judged because of their ethnicity. It was the thought that ‘everything could be separate if it was equal’. African Americans had to use different restrooms, water fountains, buses, etc.… Even the quality of was terrible. People who were immigrants to the U.S. were thought as “low class”, because they were not born native to the United States. Another big issue was the discrimination of the poor. The poor were always discriminated by the rich because they couldn’t afford the finer things in life, no money to spend, and bad living conditions. “Because for three long centuries this people lynched Negroes who dared to be brave, raped black women who dared to be virtuous, crushed dark-hued youth who dared to be ambitious, and encouraged and made to flourish servility and lewdness and apathy” (Dubois 1). The white man held the power over many. Not only does this apply then, but also it still applies now.

 

Discrimination has always been a problem. It does not matter where you’re from, where you’re at, or who you are. There will always be someone out there who judges you for you. For example, civilians are afraid of terrorists so they judge anyone who looks like one. I believe Muslims are the most judged today. “Results of a recent survey conducted by the Islamic Human Rights Commission (IHRC), soon to be published as part of “France and the Hated Society: Muslim Experiences,” show that over 80 percent of Muslims in France have heard offensive jokes being made about Islam or Muslims and have heard Islamophobic comments being made by politicians” said by Bikyr Masr Staff. Today’s society is based upon how you look. If you are poor, you get made fun of. If you are rich, you get discriminated as snobby and uptight. If you come from a third world country, you are thought as uneducated in society. The world was, is, and will always be discriminated upon no matter what the era may be. Our people need to love and respect one another to get it in return.
