Du Bois was one of the founders of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and was the first editor of its journal the Crisis.

^^^^^^

That is probably the reason.

Of course it could be because in 1961, after a lifetime of scholarship and activism, he joined the Communist Party USA, saying 'Capitalism cannot reform itself. Communismthe effort to give all...what they need and to ask of each the best they can contributethis is the only way of human life.'


Did the NAACP ever honor Condoleezza Rice? No, in fact that "neutral organization" incessantly attacked and criticized her.


Of course the NAACP honored and strongly defended the Jena 6, cause they are such a "neutral organization." Remember the Jena 6? No?

The Jena Six were six black teenagers convicted in the beating of Justin Barker, a white student at Jena High School in Jena, Louisiana, on December 4, 2006. Barker was injured in the assault by the members of the Jena Six, and received treatment for his injuries at an emergency room. While the case was pending, it was often cited by some liberal commentators as an example of racial injustice in the United States, due to a belief that the defendants had initially been charged with too-serious offenses and had been treated unfairly. Conservative commentators noted the reporting of erroneous details by the media. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jena_Six

Lot's of accusations. Without a single link to a credible source to back up those accusations. Such unsupported accusations, whether by the left or right, is evidence of cupidity of the person making them. You want to accuse somebody of something, provide evidence or be considered just another gossip.

What accusations? What, Dubois joining the communist party in 1961? That is an accusation or a fact?

Are you now saying, considering it is a fact that he joined the communist party, that you have a problem with the fact the Harvard built a building honoring him? Or are you not fully aware that our universities promoted and actively promote socialist/communist ideals?

How lost are you?
