The Negro Problem
As the nation continues to divert attention away from health care, job creation and global warming to focus on the use of the word “Negro” on the census and by a current sitting United States Senator, it is a prime opportunity to also look back on the classic work, The Negro Problem. The book had such contributors as Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois. One could further explore the Negro Problem by digging into An American Dilemma: The Negro Problem and Modern Democracy, a report funded by the Carnegie Foundation and later credited as a framework for how Americans viewed race relations and reconciliation.
