Thomas Sowell on the Current Black Culture

"If you want to learn more on this topic, read the following 2 books by Thomas Sowell: Black Rednecks and White Liberals — Intellectuals and Race —" from video introduction.

"..His latest book is a string of essays, whose title is taken from the first of them: “Black Rednecks and White Liberals.” An arresting title, that, and an arresting essay. The five other essays are related, I suppose, but only tangentially so. Writes Sowell in his preface, “The purpose of this book is to expose some of the more blatant misconceptions poisoning race relations in our time.” Indeed, that is one of the purposes of Sowell’s life work. He further writes, “[T]hese essays summarize the conclusions of more than a quarter of a century of my research on racial and cultural issues . . .” I should call this book a summa, and it is. But I called a previous Sowell work — The Quest for Cosmic Justice — a summa (which it was). Probably better to say that Sowell pours hard-won wisdom into everything he does..." from the article: Chewing Nails By JAY NORDLINGER September 9, 2005
