Liberalism Versus Blacks

There you go again, Dr. Sowell! Bringing common sense and logic into a discussion about race. How dare you! You must be one of those "cornball brothers." I once got into a Twitter "discussion" about race with a liberal black woman, and I mentioned that I strove to live by MLK's statement to judge others by the "content of their character" rather than race. You would have thought I had thrown water on the wicked witch. She unloaded on me with the most vile language. Conservatives aren't the ones who have a problem with race. It's those who want to wear it as a 2x4 on their shoulders who keep the hate alive.

I've made much the same point in discussions before: http://www.afn.org/~scotsman/writings/affirmative.action.html

Excellent observation. She is far from alone. Now look at the statements from the liberals and you will see the same hatred and racism. I have been pointing this out for at least 30 years. Just one example: imagine that there is a word that is acceptable or unacceptable based on the color of your skin. Liberals are racists.

The underlying threat to many a Liberal black woman is that the NAACP or some Women's advocate group will not be a phone call away, if her boss wants her to move on as an incompetent or lazy worker. There simply cannot be a black woman that is not an admirable icon.
Why the Susan Rice debacle was significant. She was a used liar.
People are people, and MLK told us how to measure them. If a black person departs from that wisdom, they are part of the problem and not the solution.
There is no question that liberals do an impressive job of expressing concern for blacks. But do the intentions expressed in their words match the actual consequences of their deeds?

San Francisco is a classic example of a city unexcelled in its liberalism. But the black population of San Francisco today is less than half of what it was back in 1970, even though the city's total population has grown.

Severe restrictions on building housing in San Francisco have driven rents and home prices so high that blacks and other people with low or moderate incomes have been driven out of the city....
