Social Thinking

“The Negro in America is a social and not a personal or human problem. To think of him is to think of statistics, slums, rapes, injustices, remote violence.” James Baldwin

Baldwin reflecting on the indictment and predicament of Jim Crow, another consequence of W.E.B. Du Bois’s color line thesis. I think about all the brothers and sisters who are in jail due to societal ills, vice, and poverty. Education is the greatest savior for the Negro; however, he has been given lie for years. It is not the Negro church that will save him, but the Negro mind.
