Black Rednecks and White Liberals is a collection of six essays by Thomas Sowell. The first essay, the book's namesake, traces the origins of the "Ghetto" African American culture to the culture of Scotch-Irish Americans in the Antebellum South

Black Rednecks and White Liberals. These people are creating a terrible problem in our cities.

Black Rednecks and White Liberals. In the late 1940s, a Chicago employer said frankly, I told the guard at the plant gate to tell the hillbillies that there were no openings. When poor whites from the South moved into Northern cities to work in war plants during the Second World War, occasionally a white southerner would find that a flat or furnished room had ‘just been rented’.

Thomas Sowell is persuasive and provocative and always scintillating. I’ve read all his books and never been even faintly disappointed.

In addition to Black Rednecks and White Liberals, the book takes on subjects ranging from Are Jews Generic? to The Real . Adam was telling me about this book, and about the amazing man that is Thomas Sowell. Read his bio - he's led a very interesting life.

In addition to Black Rednecks and White Liberals, the book takes on subjects ranging from Are Jews Generic? to The Real History of Slavery. It's interesting that many of the "undesirable" qualities of the South, . working to feed the family when needed, rather than having a steady work ethic and income, may have come from original settlers from wilder areas like Ulstead County, Ireland, and Wales, and Northern Scotland, where many of my ancestors are from!

In his new collection of essays, Black Rednecks and White Liberals . Thomas Sowell is the Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution.

In his new collection of essays, Black Rednecks and White Liberals, Sowell once again performs this task with great insight. In a later chapter in the book, devoted to Black Education: Achievements, Myths and Tragedies, Sowell explains that in the decades following the Civil War, black schools and colleges in the south were mostly manned by white administrators and teachers from New England who, with noticeable success, worked to instill Yankee virtues of hard work, discipline, education, and self-reliance.

This is a much bigger story than can fit into a newspaper column, which is why I wrote my latest book, "Black Rednecks and White Liberals. White liberals come into this story because, since the 1960s, they have been aiding and abetting a counterproductive ghetto lifestyle that is essentially a remnant of the redneck culture which handicapped Southern whites and blacks alike for generations

This book presents the kind of eye-opening insights into the history and culture of race for which Sowell has become famous. As late as the 1940s and 1950s, he argues, poor Southern rednecks were regarded by Northern employers and law enforcement officials as lazy, lawless, and sexually immoral. This pattern was repeated by blacks with whom they shared a subculture in the South. Over the last half century poor whites and most blacks have moved up in class and affluence, but the ghetto remains filled with black rednecks. Their attempt to escape, Sowell shows, is hampered by their white liberal friends who turn dysfunctional black redneck culture into a sacrosanct symbol of racial identity. In addition to Black Rednecks and White Liberals, the book takes on subjects ranging from Are Jews Generic? to The Real History of Slavery.

This is among the most interesting and enlightening books ever written. It is vintage Thomas Sowell- a thoroughly researched, broad sweep of history, economics and sociology and their impact on humanity. The writing style is accessible, interesting and engaging rather than bogged-down and dry like other books on similar subjects.
The greatness lies in debunking vast numbers of popular myths and misconceptions about differences and similarities between races, cultures, nationalities and their conduct. Most readers will be shocked to learn of the popular acceptance and practice of slavery worldwide and that Western culture lead the fight- literally- to end slavery. Europeans, Asians, Africans, South Americans, North Americans all engaged in slavery to an extent never discussed- at least not in America. Our sociologists, historians, politicians and others of low motivation would have us believe the institution was originated by and limited to the U.S. southland. Nothing could be further from the truth. Slavery continued in the Ottoman Empire for decades after the US Civil war and for generations in Africa, Asia, the Islamic culture and elsewhere despite vast military expenditures by European countries to stamp it out.
Dr. Sowell details dozens of additional examples of shocking, tragic relationships based on economic success, culture, work ethic differences and the effect of identity politics. Success of the Chinese, Lebanese, Albanians, Jewish and Tamil cultures among other populations resulted in discrimination, slaughter and exile of the successful by the less so, incited principally by political forces. A section describes anti-Semitism in Nazi Germany resulting from the same tactics of differentiating a culture among the larger population and inciting it to tragic discrimination. Indifference to Nazism by German communities outside Germany testifies to the potential of politics and politicians to corrupt populations.
This book dispels powerful myths and debunks the rhetoric of those who seek to divide the world with false history and science and an uninformed worldview.
If you want information and enlightenment, you will love this book.

This is the best book I have read in a long time. Almost every academic discussion of race and slavery is tainted by bias, at present primarily the bias of (mostly white) people who are hell-bent on demonstrating their own virtue by mouthing anti-white slogans and truisms that are contrary to the facts. This book is written not from a narrow and aggrieved perspective, but from a broad and fair perspective that takes into account the ubiquity of slavery in the world from time immemorial, as well as the critical role that (mostly white) people in the United States played in putting an end to it. The United States did not by any means invent slavery; it was a terrible inheritance. But the Unites States ended slavery in what by historical standards was an amazingly short time, at the cost of more American lives in the Civil War than have been lost in any other war before or since. On this and a number of other matters, Sowell provides compelling evidence that the currently-prevailing narrative is itself a highly destructive force that harms black people far more than it helps them.

This book makes excellent sense and I really liked the history the author delves into. There's so much insight here that I had a paradigm shift! I recommend it to anyone who was as ignorant as I before I bought it. It's not about racism, but about culture and how it is propagated through ignorance and arrogance.

Excellent book - very insightful...Mr Sowell is not at all afraid to let facts and rational thought stand up to irrational and pervasive political correctness and social pressures (btw, in the past, weren't political correctness and social pressures known as bullying?). Mr Sowell puts our modern-day cultural neuroses in the light of historical facts and provides a basis, a groundwork, for rational progress out of our current social, political and economic morass.

When I was in college at Ann Arbor, we referred to Ypsilanti, Michigan as "Ypsitucky" because it was largely populated by White immigrants from the south. I marveled at how those people hated the Black immigrants from the south, and how the Blacks hated them. But if you threw a sheet over them (which the Whites probably did to themselves with some regularity), you would not be able to tell them apart. They talked and behaved in the same way. They had the same touchy pride, contempt for learning, and feckless approach to life. They shared the same dysfunctional culture, in other words. The surpassingly odd thing is that people condemned the Whites who held this culture, while excusing it among the Blacks, to the detriment of the Blacks. And this is what Black Rednecks and White Liberals (the first essay in this collection) is about.

Sowell supports his case with sound reasoning from unimpeachable data. If anything is lacking, it is a clear idea of how, practically, to address the problem. But of course acknowledging the problem is the first step, and Sowell's essay will convince any discerning person to do so.

It was only recently that I stumbled upon the work of Thomas Sowell. That happy event occurred as a result of reading a book written in similar vein by Mr. Shelby Steele. That said, I just finished reading “Black Rednecks and White Liberals” and was most impressed with both its thoroughness and Sowell's incisive insights. This book is 1) very well researched/annotated, 2) reasonable in length (ie less than 300 pages in hardback), 3) punctuated with occasional, albeit understated, humor and 4) quite often takes positions that are not currently “politically correct”. Attribute number 4 is reason enough to evoke one’s curiosity, while attributes 1 through 3 make this book not simply worthy of being read, but given its subject matter, I would go so far as to say it is a book that absolutely should be read by All thinking persons - irrespective of skin color or political inclination.
