The conservative myth that Blacks will do wonderfully if we just abandon multiculturalism, affirmative action, and illegitimacy marches on. Their low intelligence and lack of impulse control are what is holding them back despite job & college seat set asides, promotional advantages, etc. They had an enormous crime problem long before the Great Society programs despite the rosy picture some paint.
Professor Craig Frisby is on the faculty of University of Missouri's Department of Educational, School and Counseling Psychology. His most recent book is "Meeting the Psychoeducational Needs of Minority Students." It's a 662-page textbook covering a range of topics from multiculturalism and home and family influences to student testing and school discipline. There's no way full justice can be given to this excellent work in the space of this column, so I'll highlight a few valuable insights he makes that would help educators do a better job with minority students.

Quack multiculturalism is the name Frisby gives to the vision...
