The problem is not articulation of message, it's policies that are not in the best interest of the minorities. Policies by designed or unintended consequence, help the rich get richer and poor get poorer. And remember Reagan raised Taxes 11 times, and tax rates were far higher almost 70% for the rich, that's the difference OLD Tom fail to mention. So the best Sowell can come up with is to pay minorities less, it's a new day everyone of substance is moving forward, Tom your time has passed, you're views are not well though out, or it leave out far too many factors. Give a rest your pearls are no longer pearls, more like rocks, and if there were pearls, look who you are giving to, TH nut cases--sort of like throwing pearls to swine..
