Jesse Jackson leader continues. He led the American black community from zero participation 1970. He was instrumental in the 1980's reality check for the black community. Today, he provided the new players, social, political, economic, at work, in schools, and at home. An accomplishment of mythical proportions?????
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....
