It was until he left office. The buck continues to stop with whoever occupies the White House as long as troops are in the country in which they were sent. Are you f-ing serious about exempting Obama from any responsibility that would be attributed to anyone occupying the White House during international conflict?

Ad black chariot I don't know how old you are, but Dr. Williams' lived through much tougher times, racially speaking, and is one of America's best thinkers. Your comments about his ability to recognize racism is ignorant and offensive.

Yo Blackchariot. Re-read Dr. Williams' article. He in no way said Sterling was not a racist. He said he made racist statements and said he "might" be a racist. There is a difference. In addition, Dr. Williams didn't preclude people of color from owning a sports franchise. You missed the point. He merely said that the pure application of economics, without government interference, would sort out who should have the jobs as players and owners. As to your point about whites once dominating basketball, it was economics alone, rather than any governmental affirmative action program that brought "Negroes" (your word) to be dominate in the NBA. As far as productivity standards are concerned, in all sports as well as in corporate environments, results ultimately determine who will work and who will be unemployed. We are all better off when that happens.

For every one of these "success" stories, there are a multiple of horror stories, like jobs being lost, people with huge on-going treatment bills that are now being denied. The list is much longer than the successes.

Are you serious? Have you not done ANY reading about Obama's beliefs and goals prior to him becoming President? He's been a Marxist all his life, who believes everything Jeremiah Wright believes about this country. Do you think just because he became President, his thinking changed? If so, he's a schizophrenic, then we're really in trouble.

Where did Dr. Sowell advocate us going to war over Ukraine? His point was we disarmed Ukraine by removing weapons enabling them to present a deterrent to Putin's aggression.

Obamacare was never about healthcare. It's about control. Any part of our lives can be connected to our "health" and therefore be controlled by govt.

who was the ONLY Illinois State Senator who actually promoted legislation giving permission to kill babies after they were born? Who was the only presidential candidate who condemned Bush as being (and I quote) "unAmerican" for spending too much money, then goes on to prove himself even more "unAmerican" by spending four times as much?

Let me see if I understand what you're saying about school vouchers. You would rather have poor people of any color not be able to put their children in good schools because you think white conservatives (what about white liberals and black conservatives?) would also take advantage of this option? That's like denying rescue to a lifeboat full of people of all races in the ocean because there may be some white conservatives in it. Sounds racist to me.
