“Was Washington’s program for gaining social acceptance for blacks an elitist program?”
Blacks and whites are equal, same with all of the other races out in the world. Booker was for all races to be equal, but the whites always thought of themselves higher than the blacks, well Booker also thought that blacks should have the same rights as the whites to voting. Nothing in the constitution for America said that blacks were not allowed to vote. They are human to, so they also had the right to vote if they were citizens of America. But was Washington’s program for gaining social acceptance for blacks an elitist program? YES.
