Professor Williams I am certain that you and Dr. Sowell are right. My family lived with black people until I went to Vietnam. They were almost family to us. They were intelligent, respectful, deserving of respect, and wise. I loved them. The so-called civil rights movement does not seemed to have really benefited anyone. Segregation was wrong as slavery was wrong, but slavery would have died here as it did most everywhere else without Mr. Lincoln's devastating war. I don't know how segragation could have been handled better, but there were black leaders and white leaders who did have good ideas and would have done it better than politicians.
