    1. One farm bought, one house built,one home sweetly and intelligently kept, one man who isthe largest tax payer or has the largest bank account, oneschool or church maintained, one factory runningsuccessfully, one truck garden protably cultivated, onepatient cured by a Negro doctor, one sermon wellpreached, one oce well lled, one life cleanly lived–these will tell more in our favor than all the abstracteloquence that can be summoned to plead our cause.

      Washington again asserts the value of the middle and upper class, of land and business owners, over the value of the working class, and yet he doesn't grasp the almost complete lack of social mobility within the capitalist system.

    2. who will prove by actual resultstheir value to the community, I cannot but believe, I say,that this will constitute a solution to many of the presentpolitical and social diculties.

      While I understand that Washington could not see the future, and was perhaps simply being optimistic, he was wrong. No matter how strong capitalism is in influencing your respectability within society, it will never be enough to overcome racism as racism does not view things rationally. Furthermore, these industrial jobs are now looked down upon and any attempt by African-Americans to move into more respected jobs has faced resistance from upper class whites, largely due to their attempt to keep wealth concentrated within the hands of the 1% but also due to either conscious or subconscious racial biases about the ability of black people to work in jobs that are not trades.

    3. The home which she would then havebeen able to nd by the results of her work would haveenabled her to help her children to take a still moreresponsible position in life.

      Aka, since women are capable of having children they should forgo formal education in favor of housework so that they may one day better take care of their children who can then attempt to move up the socioeconomic ladder.

    4. I would set no limits to the attainments of the Negro inarts, in letters or statesmanship, but I believe the surestway to reach those ends is by laying the foundation in thelittle things of life that lie immediately about one’s door. Iplead for industrial education and development for theNegro not because I want to cramp him, but because Iwant to free him. I want to see him enter the all-powerfulbusiness and commercial world.

      Here Washington encourages readers to seek only the smallest amount of success and approval they can from the system in which they live, that they should not seek to change an unjust system but rather adapt to it and take the crumbs that are offered to them with nothing more than a "thank you."

    5. And just the same with theprofessional class which the race needs and must have, Iwould say give the men and women of that class, too, thetraining which will best t them to perform in the mostsuccessful manner the service which the race demands.

      He seems to view the status of a race of people as equivalent to how much work and capitol said race can contribute to the economy.

      "Internalized capitalism is this idea that our self-worth is directly linked to our productivity." - Professor Anders Hayden of Dalhousie University

    6. Without industrial development there can be nowealth; without wealth there can be no leisure; withoutleisure no opportunity for thoughtful reection and thecultivation of the higher arts.”

      He repeatedly seems to assert the idea that due to their current state in the economy at the time of this writing, black people should continue to work in jobs they hate in order to hopefully receive some semblance of relevance and respect in the capitalist system as controlled by middle and upper class whites. Here he claims that black people of the working class should not take time for themselves, should not focus on anything outside of work, and should not attempt to elevate their socioeconomic status. He views time off, rest, and activities outside of work as something that only the upper class should seek, and that black people of his day should continue to work lower paying jobs so that their future descendants may one day be a part of this oppressive upper class. All I see here is an awful case of internalized and externalized capitalism that seeks to further oppress people for things that are outside of their control.

    7. It is discouraging to nd agirl who can tell you the geographical location of anycountry on the globe and who does not know where toplace the dishes upon a common dinner table. It isdiscouraging to nd a woman who knows much abouttheoretical chemistry, and who cannot properly wash andiron a shirt.

      While practical life skills are important, I can't help but notice how long he goes on about his disappointment in black women for receiving liberal arts educations in comparison to how long he goes on about his disappointment in black men for the same.

    8. I think should be the policy of all industrial schools–ttingstudents for occupations which would be open to them intheir home communities.

      Students should not be expected to stay in their home communities, it should be a choice they get to make.

    9. Under these circumstances we cannot be surprised if shedoes not fulll the expectations made for her.

      Girls should not be expected to do domestic work, and people should not be disappointed if they cannot do it. Is this also expected of men? The answer is no.

    10. We began teaching wheelwrighting and blacksmithing ina small way to the men, and laundry work, cooking andsewing and housekeeping to the young women.

      Why are the domestic classes only offered to the women? I feel as though men and women could have benefitted from all of the classes the Institute had to offer, not just the ones that matched the stereotypical gender roles.

    11. Ours is anagricultural population. The school must be broughtmore closely to the soil.

      This is starting to sound like he wants the aspects of heavy agriculture work in slavery to be brought back. Does he just mean that there is a need for farmers in the area?

    12. districts and must and should continue to live there

      I believe that people don't always have to do what will make them best off, they should be free to pursue their passions/what they want to do in life.

      (It won't allow me to highlight the other part of the sentence I wanted to use for my annotation)

    13. We began teaching wheelwrighting and blacksmithing ina small way to the men, and laundry work, cooking andsewing and housekeeping to the young women.

      These are all jobs necessary for a successful society, but I do not think it should have been split by gender. Both genders could have benefited from the classes offered.

    14. I would set no limits to the attainments of the Negro inarts, in letters or statesmanship,

      Limits should not be placed on people because of their race.

    15. Our knowledge mustbe harnessed to the things of real life

      I do not think our knowledge should just be limited to the things of real life. I think that you should learn, ask questions and think outside of the box.

    16. It is discouraging to nd agirl who can tell you the geographical location of anycountry on the globe and who does not know where toplace the dishes upon a common dinner table. It isdiscouraging to nd a woman who knows much abouttheoretical chemistry, and who cannot properly wash andiron a shirt.

      Again, it should not be discouraging for women to break outside of the stereotypical gender roles box.

    17. How often have Ibeen discouraged as I have gone through the South, andinto the homes of the people of my race, and have foundwomen who could converse intelligently upon abstrusesubjects, and yet could not tell how to improve thecondition of the poorly cooked and still more poorlyserved bread and meat

      I do not think that discouraged is the right word choice. It should not be found as discouraging that women have skills outside of the typical gender roles such as cooking and cleaning.

    1. Because many of the theories deal with issues of power, students on the margin for particular reasons--ethnicity, class, ability--;ire often more receptive to the basic ideological premises of these theories than are their more privileged peers, who sometimes respond to theories such as gender and class as using the master's tools to dismantle the tnaster's house.

      This is a really awesome thought and it makes a lot of sense to me. In general, I really dislike when certain texts or concepts are left out of non-honors/AP curricula because I think it's dismissive of students' abilities. At my current student teaching placement Romeo & Juliet is being significantly "dumbed down", and as an educator and lover of Shakespeare it's making me very sad. :(
