Summary
Sowell (Hoover Institution, Stanford U.) presents his recent essays on race, ethnicity, slavery, and history. Among the topics he addresses are the shared characteristics of persecution between Jews and other "middleman" minorities such as the Ibos in Nigeria, and the Armenians in Ottoman Turkey; the historical ubiquity of slavery versus what he sees as an inordinate focus on American slavery; education as the near sole driver of black economic advancement (as opposed to anti-discrimination legislation or other governmental programs); and the lamentable harnessing of history to "agendas" (citing, but not explicitly naming, Howard Zinn as a suitable example). The title essay attributes current problems in black ghettos to the "connection between the cultural characteristics of Southern rednecks or crackers in the past and those of ghetto blacks of today," along with white liberal enablers
