Black Rednecks and White Liberals: And Other Cultural And Ethnic Issues
Black Rednecks and White Liberals: And Other Cultural And Ethnic Issues
by T. Sowell
Edition: Hardcover

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful
5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read, 19 July 2005
This book is a series of long essays on various subjects:
1) The title essay- The origins of "black culture" actually had its origin in white reneck culture that originated from the backward people of the Scottish Highlands who settled in the American South and that white liberals insisting on Blacks maintaining this culture citing "cultural pride" is actually harmful to Blacks (Most Blacks have wisely ignored the White liberals and discarded that culture).
2) Are Jews Generic?- Parallels between Jews in Europe, Chinese in SE Asia, and Indians in Africa. Mostly about their high levels of success and the resentment they arouse from the majority population.
3)Slavery-Was worldwide, multiracial (the word slave is derived from the word "Slav"), was first abolished in the western world thanks to the tireless efforts of deeply religious Christians (though I don't agree on comparing them to today's religious right), and was abolished in Africa and the Middle East only upon the imposition of western rule(though Saudi Arabia didn't abolish slavery until the 1960's, Tibet until the China reimposed rule over it, and continues to flourish in Sudan and Mauritania).
4)Germans- Their supposed militarism, industriousness and the burning question: Was the rise of Nazism an aberration or a culmination? Interesting to note that German communities in the US and Brazil were actively involved in anti-slavery movements in both countries.
There are many more essays that give unique insights and it is a must buy.
