How does it feel to be a problem?\r\n\r\nBy Dr. Andre M. Perry, Contributing Columnist\r\nFebruary 12, 2007 \r\n\r\n\"How does it feel to be a problem?\" W.E.B. DuBois courageously gave words to the painful realities of living as a Black person in America in his magnum opus, The Souls of Black Folk. If you have not read this classic or any section of DuBois\' vast catalog of work, you could easily walk away from the provocative question assuming that DuBois lived a depressed, pitiful existence. A surface read may have you conclude that he held a spirit full of contempt.\r\n
