Liberalism versus Blacks
Townhall – Thomas Sowell – 1/15/2013

Severe restrictions on building housing in San Francisco have driven rents and home prices so high that blacks and other people with low or moderate incomes have been driven out of the city. The same thing has happened in a number of other California communities dominated by liberals.

The two most recent books that show this with hard facts are "MISMATCH" by Richard Sander and Stuart Taylor, Jr., and "WOUNDS THAT WILL NOT HEAL" by Russell K. Nieli. My own book "AFFIRMATIVE ACTION AROUND THE WORLD" shows the same thing with different evidence.

Liberals take positions that make them look good and feel good -- and show very little interest in the actual consequences for others, even when liberal policies are leaving havoc in their wake.

To claim that blacks get a better education if they sit next to whites in school is something very different. And it is something that goes counter to the facts.

Many liberal ideas about race sound plausible. What is not understandable is how so many liberals can blindly ignore 50 years of evidence to the contrary.
