Alright People I got 2 contestants coming up... you can consider them the originators of BEEF
But these two respectable men weren't arguing over street cred and other superficial attributes that we have begun to believe personifies who we are
these elite dudes were beefing over higher education regarding the black community...
CAN YOU DIG THAT?!!
Jim Crow was a household name in America
Plessy vs Ferguson informed African Americans that they were Separate BUT Equal
both advocated for it
but disagreed over how it should be conducted and what forms of study would greatly benefit the scholars in the long run
this beef over how and what college-bound African Americans should pursue that would later benefit them professionally in the real world resulted in the 2 brothas attacking each other's ideologies, dignity, and credibilty in the Black community
so i present to you
our 1st industrial fighter hailing from Hale's Ford Virginia
and our 2nd liberal arts fighter hailing Great Barrington Massachusetts
Booker T. VS W.E.B.
Both had strongpoints and weaknesses concerning HIGHER LEARNING
...But who would you choose?
(Just a thought but think about it)
By the Way...
HAPPY BLACK HISTORY MONTH!!!!
