“Me? I already know I’m not a racist, and so I just feel sorry for those who think they can hurt me by calling me one. I’m not afraid to talk about this stuff, and in fact I’ve been saying we need to for years now. So much the government has done — mostly from the left, but some of it on the right — to “help” blacks has been all about helping themselves secure a voting bloc. And even if we allow that, early on, the intentions of liberal social engineers were good, there’s simply no excuse for not reviewing how the policies have worked or not worked, or what has been the trajectory of the black experience in the US since the end of slavery.
I’ve often recommended America in Black and White to readers — the “progressives” HATE that book and its numbers and its approach — because it give lie to the entirety of their racialist agenda and shows the outright failures of their policies, which often times had the precise opposite effect of what was intended by their implementation.”
