Booker T. Washington Vs. W.E.B Du Bois
Which strategy for African Americans was correct for the time period?
Who's ideals were superior?
Quotes from there publications should be used.
Oh god, white kids on 4chan doing cursory readings on two black leaders and their ideas for black upliftment then debating who was best.
It's like so much pomp and pretension a fedora image response is actually appropriate.
The answer is both and neither.
Washington, he wanted to create a prosperous, respectable and integrated black society within the US, while DuBois pushed WE WUZ KANGS and his separatist ideology has led to the assholery that goes on today.
DuBois was the exact opposite of WE WUZ KANGS or black separatism. He wanted total equal integration.
This is the reason he panned Marcus Garvey's actual separatism, he felt it was capitulating to white supremacy.
Booker T Washington all the way. DuBois was your typical Al-sharpton like nigger agitator whose credo was "WE DINDU NUFFIN WE WUZ KANGZ AND SHEIIT GIBS MONEY WHITEY", whereas Washington preached self-reliance.
