Wouldn't let that horse die peacefully, would you? My point is that the plight of blacks is not fully described by looking at the Chicago police blotter. You have to look at history to find reasons, if any, for such social ills. If you can't find a reason, how can you propose a remedy?
Not to beat a dead horse, but I believe that if you mistreat people for one generation after another, you will change their collective good sense. Today's 15-year-olds probably have no idea about black independence and rising prosperity after WW2.
fox, read your Sowell. His observations and data all but prove that the reversal of black fortunes coincides with the the beginning of the Great Society. It's time for non-Democrats to take Sowell's ball and run with it. What do they have to lose? At minimum, they'd break the taboo against discussing race factually and make blacks not quite so eager to vote Democrat.

Disagree. The unintended consequences of a half-century of super-Constitutional welfare and other federal intrusions has steered blacks in a bad direction by making it unnecessary to work and impossible to get a decent education. The concept of responsibility has been made unimportant, even foolish.
Yes, and that's the point they should make - indirectly. The first order of business is showing blacks and other poor people why conservative public policy will open up new opportunities for them, and reverse their slide in society. Part of that argument will be by counter-example, but we shouldn't lead with a broadside against liberals. There will be time, later, to show that the Democrats have been cynically playing blacks for 50 years.
Easy there, cg. My point is that deep-seated public policy, such as that governing welfare for single parents and that governing public education, look to be prime explanations for the plight of blacks today. Can I prove that? No; no one can. But I believe what Sowell and Murray write.
Sorry, but the Republican's don't-rock-the-boat refusal to fight back on anything that might catch Al Sharpton's attention is just as bad as the Democrat's half-century abuse of minorities and the poor.

There is a lot of pent-up anger among non-Democrats about race relations. First, the government actions that marginalize black males violate strongly held conservative ideas about the role of government and equal treatment under the law. Second, it's grating to see smarmy, white, limousine liberals get away with gross hypocrisy and injustice decade after decade. Which non-Democrat is going to make Ransom's case to the public for in time for the 2014 elections? Who's going to stand up in front of a black audience and say, "If I were a black male in America I’d be a radical, I’d be angry, I’d be striking back"?
