Marcus Garvey


Mr. Garvey said: "The present-day Negro, or 'colored' intellectual is
no less a liar and a cunning thief than his illustrious teacher. His occidental
[meaning Western] collegiate training only fi ts him to be a rogue and a
vagabond, and a seeker after the easiest and best by following the line of least
resistance. He's lazy, dull, and un-creative. His purpose is to deceive the less
fortunate of his race, and, by his wiles ride easily into position and wealth at
their expense, and thereafter agitate for and seek [social] equality with the
creative and industrious Whites. To every rule, however, there is the exception,
and in this case it must be applied."
