    its interesting how black families were more intact in the past moreso than they are today but had more negative social forces against them. Being poor wasnt equated to bad behaviour and lack of ambition at one time. Poor ppl were known to work hard but not have a lot to show for it. That isnt the same perception today..."ghetto-ness" is a mindset with attached behaviour and a sub-culture to it. So it makes you wonder what is different.....

    Sowell and Williams are
    intelligent men but they tend to minimize the effects of hundreds of years of individual and institutional racism in this country.

    I get where they are coming from in that they see the solution on equal playing field and blacks putting out the effort required to compete like everybody else...but the field has never been equal and will never be equal.

    However their is something to be said for the point that sowell made about the american black family being more intact and independent when oppression was at its peak.
