I have a problem with Dr. Williams. :) His articles are so reasoned and tthought out that the Libs don't domment. How am I supposed to Troll libs if they don't comment.

I could pretend to be a lib and say the same things about Dr. Williams that the Left has been saying about Mia Love and Stacy Dash. But unlike the Left I'm at least halfway civilized and can't be so vile.
Here's a recent statement frequently suggested by leftist academics, think tank researchers and policymakers: "People were not just struggling because of their personal deficiencies. There were structural factors at play. People weren't poor because they made bad decisions. They were poor because our society creates poverty." Who made that statement and where it was made is not important at all, but its corrosive effects on the minds of black people, particularly black youths, are devastating.

There's nothing intellectually challenging or unusual about poverty. For most of mankind's existence, his most optimistic scenario was to be able to eke out enough to subsist...
