Why the World Never Likes Proud Black Men

"A word to the Black Man. … Do not point your nose too high. Do not swell your chest too much. Do not boast too loudly.  Do not be puffed up. … You are on no higher plane, deserve no new consideration, and will get none. …  No man will think a bit higher of you because your complexion is the same as that of the victor at Reno."The LA Times, Shortly after Jack Johnson became the heavyweight champion of the world.
