goforgmat,

Quote:
Please Explain Q5. I cant seem to infer that based on last wars he has called upon the African Americans to participate in the war. He merely suggests that instead of fighting for equality we must try to uplift our position.

Quote:
E. It was advocated by Du Bois in part because of his historical knowledge of gains African Americans had made during past wars.


The first sentence of the passage tells us that "W.E.B. Du Bois advised African Americans {...} to proclaim their solidarity with White Americans for the duration of the First World War", implying that Du Bois advocated for African Americans to support the war effort. The last paragraph summarizes factors contributing to Du Bois's wartime position; one of those factors was that "Du Bois believed that African Americans’ contributions to past war efforts had brought them some legal and political advances." In other words, because of his historical knowledge of gains (ie legal and political) African Americans had made during past wars, Du Bois advocated that African Americans should proclaim their solidarity with White Americans for the duration of the First World War.

Hi Goforgmat,

Regarding Q5, answer for the question can be clearly inferred from the below lines in the 2nd paragraph.

"Furthermore, Du Bois believed that African Americans’
contributions to past war efforts had brought them
some legal and political advances."

Thanks
