Can E. Franklin Frazier's assessment of Negro teachers in 1955 be applied to today's African American teachers? Is the modern Black Bourgeoisie similar to the Black Bourgeoisie in the past?
Many Negro teachers refuse identification with the
Negro masses and look upon teaching primarily as a
source of income. In many cases they have nothing but
contempt for their Negro pupils. Moreover, they have no
real interest in education and genuine culture and spend their leisure in frivolities and in activities designed to win a place in Negro "society."
