In this quote, Booker T. Washington appears to be saying that his experience raising funds for Tuskegee Institute gave him little patience for people who routinely condemn wealthy individuals simply because they possess wealth or because they do not donate more to charitable causes.

Washington seems to suggest that condemning others or having unrealistic expectations of how much they should give is unfair and unproductive.

The best interpretation is that through his own fundraising efforts, Washington learned that wealthy benefactors should not automatically be criticized or viewed negatively just for being rich or not donating even more than they already do to philanthropic causes.
