Default Anyone care to guess who made this quote and when?

There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the n3gro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs – partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the n3gro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.

Later started an R&B group with the MG's.

Wow, you're good!

The year was 1911! He had Jesse and Al figured out long before they were even born!

As for the R&B group, I don't think that was the same Booker T.!
