Format: Hardcover
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 abolishionist movement in both countries.
There are many more essays that give unique insights and it is a must buy.

The problems with black culture and in particular Negro culture have always been a mystery shrouded by the same plots and politically inspired misinformation. Mr Sowell's book has cleared the fog away from a sensitive subject with a very well researched narrative. Not only does it deal with the negatives of the Negro culture but many areas where similar minorities around the world have suffered at the hands of bigotry of one sort or another. The sad fact though, is that some of the negative characteristics which white peoples took with them from this country still prevail in patches throughout the UK and like the Negro situation in America are worsened by attitudes of the left wing which re-enforce the immorality exercised by these various groups rather than condemning it.

Some interesting views, well written. The best version of right wing (note: not socially conservative) criticisms of certain aspects of US society that I have read.
