Why Dr. W.E.B. DuBois Will Always Be The Greatest Of All Time (G.O.A.T.)

Regardless of the acclaim, entitlement and awe that the members of the Black Liberal Intellectualized Suicide Society (B.L.I.S.S.) movement receive for their sometimes deserved and sometimes overrated accomplishments and intellectual prowess, these scholars will never measure up to the sacrifices, achievements and legend of one Dr. William Edward Burghardt DuBois...Dr. DuBois is the Babe Ruth , Duke Ellington and William Shakespeare of Black Intellectuals...He set the bar for what can be done when one uses one's brain, god given talents, and passion to effect change in a world based on plantation capitalism and White supremacy...Dr. DuBois was the first Black person to receive a Ph. D from Harvard University...He is also the Father of American Sociology having established the first sociology department in Amerikkka at Black Atlanta University at the turn of the 20th Century...He was a scholar activist of the highest order, having organized the 1905 Niagara Movement in protest of Amerikkkan apartheid and some aspects of Booker T. Washington's philosophy regarding accommodation concerning the racist treatments of Blacks by Whites...He was a founding member of the N.A.A.C.P., the oldest civil rights organization in the U.S.A....He also was the editor and founder of the Crisis Magazine the official literary voice of the N.A.A.C.P. which gave him a chance to articulate the policies and philosophy of the N.A.A.C.P. as well as offer his own unique perspectives and commentaries on the pressing issues of the day and to showcase talented African Americans (for example Dr. DuBois was the first person to discover and publish a young literary giant in the making by the name of Langston Hughes...A lifelong Pan Africanist he helped to organized the very influential Pan African Congress Conferences of the first part of the 20th Century where he not only served as inspiration and moderator, but also mentored the young leaders of the Nu Independent Africa Movement including Kwame Nkrumah, Sekou Toure, and Jomo Kenyatta...In spite of the fact that Dr. DuBois did all of the above and even found time to authored 21 books, write several plays and poetry he still never received his props from White mainstream Amerikkka and was also under appreciated in many respects by Black people as well...Although he graduated with honors from Harvard University he was never hired as a full time tenured professor at any of the major Elitist White Academic Institutions like Dr. Cornell West who enjoyed and enjoys celebrated professorships at both Harvard University and Princeton University respectively...Dr. West and many other B.L.I.S.S. members also continue to enjoy numerous opportunities to do lecture tours and command huge pay days from the same Elitist White Academic Institutions that saw the multi-talented Dr. DuBois as just an uppity and agitating high yellow nigger...Dr. DuBois,who was a proud Fisk University graduate, spent his early career laboring at historically Black Wilberforce University and Atlanta University respectively basically building an academic program without much help or fanfare from scratch and limited resources...Although no one can control or determine one's own birth place or birth time, I still can not logically state or believe that Dr. West or any of the contemporary Black scholars can be considered in the same league as Dr. DuBois because Dr. DuBois still in terms of output and influence used his head better than most by a fairly wide margin (no homo)...Dr. DuBois in most of his 95 years on planet earth was considered a threat because he not only challenged both the philosophies of the Amerikkkan and World Imperial systems by writing brilliantly researched and executed academic papers and books which have for the most part stood the test of time and rightfully belong in the canon of only the most brilliant and thought provoking works of some of the greatest scholars that ever lived both outside and inside The African Diaspora, but ALSO BECAUSE HE HAD THE TESTICULAR FORTITUDE (BALLS) TO TAKE THIS SOPHISTICATED LEARNING AND TIMELESS MESSAGE OUT OF THE SAFE CONFINES OF THE CLASSROOM AND PRACTICE IT IN THE REAL WORLD BY EMPOWERING PEOPLE FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE THROUGH HIS INTELLECTUAL GIFTS AND GRASSROOTS ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS...By contrast Dr. West and many of his B.L.I.S.S. contemporaries are only considered threats when fighting or vying with each other for tenured positions in Elite White Academic Institutions or for air time with Laffy Taffy Smiley Face (Tavis Smiley), the Short Attention-Span Network (C-Span) and Bill 'I'm In Love With A Stripper/Hooker' Maher.
