Walter E. Williams
Here's a recent statement frequently suggested by leftist
academics, think tank researchers and policymakers: "People were not just
struggling because of their personal deficiencies. There were structural
factors at play. People weren't poor because they made bad decisions. They
were poor because our society creates poverty." Who made that statement
and where it was made is not important at all, but its corrosive effects
on the minds of black people, particularly black youths, are devastating.
