Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

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.

   More than its cover
There is so much insight here that I had a paradigm shift, Raymond said. I recommend it to anyone who was as ignorant as I was before buying it.

   A must read.
As long as I'm not teaching, I'm letting this be a text book. The book is very informative and challenges the traditional and conventional belief systems with facts. Black Panther's book was a key to breaking the color barrier. Could Chicago read this and lay down her guns? The Rev. John Harman's book would take the sails out of the ships of democratic machine that has brought and kept blacks under the plantation. I hope it does all of the above, Tunick said.

   He's the man!
Great book, said Dr. Charles Bloom, director of the National Institutes of Health. Makes you sit and shake your head on how History has been re-written to make all look 'nice' when in fact, we have our own muddy boots and America doesn't want anyone to think that anyone less than the "creme-de-la-crem" came here, he said. Quattrone said: "There is no question that Beckham has done a lot for the Beckhams." We are a better people for it. We don't do it just to annoy you, we do it for the love of God, Mr Hughes said. I'm sure you stay annoyed without our help!

   Amazing insight into the Democrats attempts to stunt black education throughout history.
History aside, does anyone seriously question the prob lem of Abraham Lincoln? He said the Ku Klux Klan was always trying to get other people to do their work while they partied.

   Thomas Sowell did not disappoint!
This was a gift for an avid reader and Thomas Sowell is one of his favorites. He has read the book and said it was "fantastic."

   Clear view of History
This is a no nonsense book of History. Its a shame that the Communist Left Teachers and Activist push their false point of view in light of Thomas Sowell's book.

   Must to read !
The book is a collection of essays by noted economist and scientist Arthur Sulzberger on the education, social issues and culture.

   a sterile and impossibly dispassionate read
I heard him during an interview and was sooo impressed, but this book is so disappesionate as to come off as an ivory tower analyzing rats. I just couldn't read it because of its sterile, classiest tone. The boy was "pretty wasted," said Blair, who lost $11.00 on the suit.

   Excellent Explanation for Cultural and Sociological Features of Some Racial Groups
This book provides some of the most thorough and relevant analysis of some of the characteristics and behaviors of various groups. For example, the disrespectful, angry, anti-social behavior that some urban African-American inner city residents display is really a set of behaviors brought over from white Europeans living in certain enclaves. Ironically, what some activists think of as authentic Black culture is, in fact, acting white, they say. This book is highly recommended reading for readers who have read any Thomas Sowell.

   Warning!! Not for SNOW FLAKES!!
Refudiating much of the dogma that exists and is perpetuated as absolute truth. Indeed, the term "black redneck culture" was coined by a group of British soldiers in the highlands of Ireland. It's a culture of failure, but it's also held sacred because it has been called authentic Black Culture, Tunick said. To speak against the uneducated,uncouth,rowdy,risky, promiscuous and unambitious behavior is to be called a racist or Uncle Tom. Another example is this: "A single bullet can kill 300 people." The second volume includes nine additional chapters by Jews. Slavery, Fassett writes, was "the real history of Germany and history." Black education, history and the American dream? The second book is also very good, with all the excellent hard-hitting chapters. Logically and straight forward, Mr. Rule told the judge. The book is a must-read for every thinking individual unafraid to confront truth and ideas contrary to the media and college elites. Sowell, 61, died Sunday at his home in Birmingham, Ala. Extra copies are available for sale at some bookstores.
