Let me just start off by saying that Dr. Thomas Sowell can espouse a great amount of meaningful information on many topics. The error of this article and this topic is that he continues this Blacks vs. or Affirmative Action or welfare or minimum wage laws discussion. There is never an article where Dr. Sowell articulates the triumphs of the African American community. He is not an Uncle Tom and I do see where he wants to see African American community better themselves but how he is viewing and/or studying his information is not the case. I also don't see the connection of liberals vs. blacks in this article. Some people are from a socioeconomic background that doesn't provide all the necessary tools. Example, Justice Sotomayor.
