"This book explains why so many efforts by liberals to help the black underclass not only fail but often harm the intended beneficiaries. The intentions behind welfare programs may be noble, but in practice they have slowed the self-development that was necessary for other groups to advance. Minimum-wage laws may lift earnings for people who are already employed, but they also have a long history of pricing blacks out of the labor force. Affirmative action in higher education was intended to address past discrimination, but the result is fewer black college graduates, particularly in the fields of math and science, than would have existed in the absence racial preferences. And so it goes with everything from occupational licensing requirements, which make it more difficult for blacks to start businesses, to soft-on-crime laws that make black neighborhoods more dangerous, to policies that limit school choice out of a mistaken belief that charter schools and voucher programs harm the traditional public schools that most low-income students attend. In theory these efforts are intended to help the poor, and poor minorities in particular. In practice they become barriers to moving forward. Please Stop Helping Us lays bare these counterproductive results. People of good will want to see more black socio-economic advancement, but in too many instances the current methods and approaches aren't working. Acknowledging that is an important first step"--

This explosive new book challenges many of the long-prevailing assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on not only the trendy intellectuals of our times but also such historic interpreters of American life as Alexis de Tocqueville and Frederick Law Olmsted. 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. 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. 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. The reasons for the venomous hatred of Jews, and of other groups like them in countries around the world, are explored in an essay that asks, ''Are Jews Generic?'' Misconceptions of German history in general, and of the Nazi era in particular, are also re-examined. So too are the inspiring achievements and painful tragedies of black education in the United States. Black Rednecks and White Liberals is the capstone of decades of outstanding research and writing on racial and cultural issues by Thomas Sowell.

Race pimping has cost America TRILLIONS of dollars, as the money in race guilt is fantastic. Politicians line their pockets and those of family and friends, while delivering little to nothing to their constituents or the community at large. ********************************************************************* Don't know whether to buy this book or not, then you are a racist sellout! Just kidding. But it does mean you are likely cheap, and not to go all Shawshank on you, but salvation lies within! To help you get over the hump, here are a few excerpts to ponder: "The money in diversity is enormous, even bigger than former sportscaster turned political pundit turned sportscaster Keith Olbermann's ego." "Wouldn't you like to be a "reverend" and father children out of wedlock without repercussions? If you study hard, this book will teach you how to have your non-profit organization pay your mistress and your child support - all at the same time." "You must be so black that if you eat sushi, watch reruns of Dawson's Creek and Friends, or enjoy the ballet, you will hang yourself." "Everything your constituency does or think must be viewed through the very narrow prism of blackness. They must talk black, walk black, think black, read black, eat black, drink black, dress black, smell black, sneeze black, cough black, yawn black, surf the Internet black, and even urinate black. Failure to do so has consequences." ********************************************************************* Other books written by Kevin Jackson: The BIG Black Lie: How I Learned The Truth About The Democrat Party Sexy Brilliance: ...and other political lies!

With uncompromising clarity, Jim Sleeper discusses what liberals need to do to return their political movement to the vital center. He challenges us to transcend race, to reject the foolish policies and attitudes that have only reinforced racial divisions, and to weave a social fabric sturdy enough to sustain the values upon which this country was founded.

New York Times bestselling author and FOX News contributor Katie Pavlich exposes the truth behind the real war on women—the one being waged by Democrats. Assault and Flattery goes beyond the Democratic Party’s rhetoric and exposes its shocking and sustained assault on American women that has lasted for generations. And in some cases, the word “assault” is quite literal. Katie Pavlich thinks the Democrats have run the conversation for too long—and is out to debunk the sacred cows of the so-called Republican War on Women. Conservatives are raving about Assault and Flattery. Mark Levin calls it “a thorough and gutsy book that should help set history straight.” Michelle Malkin calls it “a tour-de-force…bold, beautiful, and brilliant.” Sean Hannity calls Katie “one of the country’s top conservative reporters,” and Monica Crowley says she “blows the lid off the lies the Left tells women.” In Assault and Flattery, Katie Pavlich explains that what the Democratic Party is doing to women, it is doing to us all. By segregating us by gender, they’re harming our future.
