    Thomas Sowell’s ‘Discrimination and Disparities’ Is The Book About Racism That America Needs
    Sowell's calm and calculated look at racial disparity in America is a stunning work of brevity and reason

    Thomas Sowell Writes The Book About Racism That America Needs

    Scholar Thomas Sowell's calm and calculated look at racial disparity in America is a stunning work of brevity and reason.
    thefederalist.com

    ...Through portraying a litany of empires, peoples, and corporations that rose and fell throughout history, Sowell shows that shifting conditions in society and the economy make assigning the blame for failure extremely complicated. For example, studies have consistently shown that firstborn and only children are more successful than their younger siblings are.

    ...NPR defended the segment in a comment to HuffPost. “Interviewing the people in the news is part of NPR’s mission to inform the American public, it does not mean NPR is endorsing one view over another,” Isabel Lara, NPR’s senior director of media relations, said.

    This white guy I know asks me the other day "How do we break the cycle of hate?". I told him white people need to get counseling for their insecurity complex. He got mad and told me he was trying to have a conversation with me so I asked what specifically did I say that was not having a conversation. He walked off.
