    Sowell is the fucking man. One of the only 20th century economists to speak in real terms and not idealistic abstracts. His book "Black Rednecks and White Liberals" essentially lays out his thesis that European immigrants to the US were allowed to grow out of their turbulent first few generations and eventually assimilate, but that US economic and social policies have prevented Americans of African descent to go through the same process. I disagree with a lot of his generalizations but it's definitely worth reading.

    I recommend reading that along with Jim Goad's "Redneck Manifesto" for a good one-two punch of politically incorrect analyses of race relations.

    In this talk, near the end, he talks about the success rate of blacks from the West Indies in New York who faced the same racism, who before any affirmative action programs attained a lot of success economically and politically. Excuses about racism and slavery (Carribean blacks were also enslaved) for the plight of blacks in the ghetto aren't the facts. Very unfortunately, it's a self-perpetuating culture of violence and self-created problems now glorified by hip hop culture. Another podcast mentions how Northern blacks had a very different culture and were integrated with their white neighbors in Chicago until the black migration from the South after World War II. Northern blacks who had been there generations didn't like the culture of Southern blacks, and most ended up in ghettos unfortunately. Sowell cites the statistics and knows the history. He's worth checking out.
    You'll love his books then.

    Basic Economics, White Liberals and Black Rednecks, Intellectuals and Society. Hell just pick one, but he has an impressive library.
    Most of the podcasts on youtube are excerpts from books he's written.

    I understand. What is your point? That the man has aged since the previous clip?

    My point was to add another important clip from Thomas Sowell and while doing so to make a clarification. It certainly was not to upset you. You have enough suffering and aggravation as it is. I will choose my words more carefully in the future. This site is an extremely important public service free of charge created by you and has been since its founding years ago, which I remember from day 1. The following clip from Sowell is 13 minutes and worth hearing about the danger America is in from the radical left who want a centralized government with them in charge and total redistribution of wealth.

    I find it worthwhile and very refreshing to take news fasts from time to time and can go a week or longer without it.

    A distressing moment for Dr John Campbell as he realises all the videos he made on the vaccine trials were irrelevant.

    Nobody was told the shot they were getting was different to the one in the trials. No one gave informed consent. Everyone was duped.

    I should probably do that myself.

    It appears as though they were really trying to kill as many people as possible. Makes you wonder what's next.

    Yes, he was a dumbass, as we have previously observed.
