It is an employer's market. Can you imagine having to look for "a job" these days? It is like looking for a needle in a hay stack and then having to sqeeze through? Until somebody has another big idea, the job rush is over with?

The "Talented Tenth" was then responsible to aid the Non-Talented Ninety Percent in achieving a better life.

Jobs become obsolete, talents do not! Talents are unlimited jobs are not.

"The Negro race, like all races, is going to be saved by its exceptional men. The problem of education, then, among Negroes must first of all deal with the Talented Tenth; it is the problem of developing the Best of this race that they may guide the Mass away from the contamination and death of the Worst, in their own and other races. Now the training of men is a difficult and intricate task. Its technique is a matter for educational experts, but its object is for the vision of seers. Now, apply that across the board.

If we make money the object of man-training, we shall develop money-makers but not necessarily men; if we make technical skill the object of education, we may possess artisans but not, in mature, men. Men we shall have only as we make manhood the object of the work of the schools intelligence, broad sympathy, knowledge of the world that was and is, and of the relation of men to it this is the curriculum of that Higher Education which must underlie true life. On this foundation we may build bread winning, skill of hand and quickness of brain, with never a fear lest the child and man mistake the means of living for the object of life. Apply that across the board.

If this be true then who can deny it? Three tasks lay before me; first to show from the past that the Talented Tenth as they have risen among American Negroes have been worthy of leadership; secondly, to show how these men may be educated and developed; and thirdly, to show their relation to the Negro problem." -- W.E.B. DuBois September 1903

Apply that across the board. We could learn a lot from each other.

Life has already been laid out, All you have to do is follow your chosen path, like it or not. Know your gifts?

Blacks Do Not Read? What good does it do when you are still denied? Blacks must become more competitive in the things we do have.
