    The culture that these people retained in the New World accounts in considerable measure for the difference between them and the Yankees of New England, most of whom originated in the lowlands of the southeastern half of the island of Britain. It did not emphasize education, for example, or intellectual interests in general. All rights reserved. Essays[ edit ] Black Rednecks and White Liberals[ edit ] The title essay is based on Sowell's thesis about the origins of the "black ghetto" culture.

    In a series of long essays, this book presents an in-depth look at key beliefs behind many mistaken and dangerous actions, policies, and trends. This culture came, in turn, from the " Cracker culture" of the North Britons and Scots-Irish who migrated from the generally lawless border regions of Britain. An essay titled "The Real History of Slavery" presents a jolting re-examination of that tragic institution and the narrow and distorted way it is too often seen today. So too are the inspiring achievements and painful tragedies of black education in the United States. Sowell also examines the cultural achievements of such "middleman minorities" as Jews and expatriate Chinese whose frequent persecution, he feels, represents an animus against capitalism. Sowell makes a really big deal about evidence, so that is a fair expectation.

    Did the prosperity of black people jump less, the same, or more than that of other people during this time? White liberals, gangsta-rap aficionados and others who lionize its ghetto remnants as an authentic black identity, Sowell contends, have their history wrong and help perpetuate cultural pathologies that hold blacks back. He points out that much of what passes for Black identity today is a modern version of the self-defeating culture slaves inherited from poor redneck whites who came from the poor sections of Britain and settled in southern states. One of the main points of the book is that black people in America mainly jumped in prosperity before the Civil Rights Act, not after, and the implication of that is that government programs don't help.

Black Rednecks And White Liberals book

Hoover Institution Fellow Sowell, author of Ethnic America, argues that "internal" cultural habits of industriousness, thriftiness, family solidarity and reverence for education often play a greater role in the success of ethnic minorities than do civil-rights laws or majority prejudices.

So too are the inspiring achievements and painful tragedies of black education in the United States. Du Bois was more activist in his attempts to end Jim Crow laws and other forms of legal discrimination while Booker T. The book goes off on a tangent about German anti-semitism.

In that culture, belligerence is considered being manly and crudity is considered cool, while being civilized is regarded as "acting white.

In a series of long essays, this book presents an in-depth look at key beliefs behind many mistaken and dangerous actions, policies, and trends. This can be a good conversation starter, but it has flaws. Many of Sowell's arguments-that the 20th-century resegregation of Northern cities was a response to the uncouthness of black rednecks migrating from the South, or that segregated black schools often succeeded by suppressing redneckism with civilized New England puritanism-will arouse controversy, but these vigorously argued essays present a stimulating challenge to the conventional wisdom.

Perhaps they have different patterns of behavior and different cultures and values behind their behavior.

It presents eye-opening insights into the historical development of the ghetto culture that is today wrongly seen as a unique black identity--a culture cheered on toward self-destruction by white liberals who consider themselves "friends" of blacks.

McWhiney uses the term to define culture rather than to signify an economic condition.

Book Review: Black Rednecks and White Liberals

White liberals, gangsta-rap aficionados and others who lionize its ghetto remnants as an authentic black identity, Sowell contends, have their history wrong and help perpetuate cultural pathologies that hold blacks back. History Versus Visions[ edit ] The final essay features Sowell's criticism of the advantages that multiculturalism is supposed to confer to the society in which it is present.

He is the recipient of the Bradley Prize. Violence was far more common in the South -- and in those parts of Britain from which Southerners came. That's a rather important detail.

Lee H. Sowell quotes Hitler as saying that if Jews didn't exist, he would have had to invent them. An essay titled "The Real History of Slavery" presents a jolting re-examination of that tragic institution and the narrow and distorted way it is too often seen today.

I think the actual quote is from Sartre's "Reflections on the Jewish Question" where he writes that If the Jew did not exist, the anti-semite would invent him. So too are the inspiring achievements and painful tragedies of black education in the United States. One of the main points of the book is that black people in America mainly jumped in prosperity before the Civil Rights Act, not after, and the implication of that is that government programs don't help.
