Thomas Sowell, an economist and political theorist wrote a book in 2005 called Black Rednecks and White Liberals, which delved deep into dispelling misconceptions about African Americans, Jews, Germans, slavery and education. He looks into the development of black culture and the white liberals whose policies are inadvertently halting progress. There is an essay which goes into what he calls “middlemen minorities” which have historically received the brunt of attempted genocide and discriminatory practices. He re-examined the history of slavery as well as Germans and Nazism. A critical eye is placed on Black education’s promising beginnings and its present day tumultuous existence.
This is the first part of in an upcoming series in which I, The Woke Centrist, a nerd and video game enthusiast with a power level of over 9000, will take a jest filled Cliff Notes approach to the book by presenting the juiciest and most titillating tidbits of information in Sowell’s first essay. With a soothing voice that only a mother could love, I break down Sowell’s essay to its most poignant and provocative points for you to easily digest, with a side of a little critique and commentary.
