Walter E Williams: Educational Sabotage


Nationally, black junior high and high school students are suspended at a rate more than three times as often as their white peers, twice as often as their Latino peers and more than 10 times as often as their Asian peers. According to former Department of Education Secretary Arne Duncan, the "huge disparity is not caused by differences in children; it's caused by differences in training, professional development, and discipline policies. It is adult behavior that needs to change."

Thomas Sowell: The Left and the Masses

The greatest moral claim of the political left is that they are for the masses in general and the poor in particular. 

That is also their greatest fraud. It even fools many leftists themselves.

Thomas Sowell: Hillary’s Paranoid Identity Politics

Serving scare tactics to black folks.  Amid all the media analyses of the prospects of each of the candidates in both political parties, there is remarkably little discussion of the validity — or lack of validity — of the arguments these candidates are using. It is as if what matters this election year is the fate of a relative handful of people — currently seven   ... MORE

Political Correctness Nightmare: An NAACP Leader Uses F-Word To Apologize For Using T-Word After N-Word Meet

by Olaf Ekberg.      The NAACP’s mission of political correctness and equality careened off the rails this week when a local president complimented a TV reporters breasts during an interview. Don Harris, the president of the Maricopa County Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, had just finished an event  ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Blacks And The Confederacy

The War of 1861 was not about freeing slaves.      Last July, Anthony Hervey, an outspoken black advocate for the Confederate flag, was killed in a car crash. Arlene Barnum, a surviving passenger in the vehicle, told authorities and the media that they had been forced off the road by a carload of "angry young black men" after Hervey,     ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Wasn't Always This Way

A conclusion not supported by the facts.   Academics and public intellectuals, who should know better, attempt to explain the highly visible and publicized pathology witnessed in cities such as Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, Ferguson and others as a legacy of slavery. The argument is made that the problems encountered by many black Americans  ... MORE

Maria Boynton: Atlanta NAACP Says “They Can Sand Blast Lee, Jefferson Davis, And Jackson” Off Stone Mountain

Ethnic grievance industry pushes for history rewrite.   The Atlanta Chapter of the NAACP is calling for the removal of the Confederacy from Stone Mountain Park. Local chapter president Richard Rose says, “It is time for Georgia and other Southern states to end the glorification of slavery and white supremacy, paid for and maintained, with     ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Is The Civil War Over?

Ethnic grievance industry focused on the past.  In the wake of the recent murders in a South Carolina church, the killer's hope of igniting a race war produced the opposite effect. Blacks and whites in South Carolina came together to condemn his act and the race hate behind it. Some saw in the decision to remove the Confederate flag from   ... MORE

Walter E Williams: Fiddling Away The Future

Let's list major problems affecting black Americans.   Topping the list is the breakdown in the black family, where only a third of black children are raised in two-parent households.  Actually, the term "breakdown" is incorrect.  Families do not form in the first place.  Nationally, there is a black illegitimacy rate of 72 percent.    ...

Walter E Williams: Improving Black Education

Use free market competition.    Last summer's Ferguson, Missouri, disturbances revealed that while blacks were 67 percent of its population, only three members of its 53-officer police force were black. Some might conclude that such a statistic is evidence of hiring discrimination. That's a possibility, but we might ask what percentage of blacks met    ... MORE

Walter E Williams: The True Black Tragedy

Keeping blacks on the liberal plantation.     Hustlers and people with little understanding want us to believe that today's black problems are the continuing result of a legacy of slavery, poverty and racial discrimination. The fact is that most of the social pathology seen in poor black neighborhoods is entirely new in black history. Let's look   ... MORE

Baltimore’s Missing Fathers

by Ken Blackwell and Rob Schwarzwalder.      The rioting in Baltimore is disturbing to all Americans, as the unresolved cause of Freddie Gray’s death while in police custody should be as well. It is right that political and religious leaders, community groups, business organizations and law enforcement officials are commenting about all the   ... MORE
