Today’s read is from one of the best writers I know, Walt Williams, an American economist, commentator, and author of Liberty Versus the Tyranny of Socialism.
What does Williams mean by the above title?
Let’s think about priorities. Say that you live in one of the dangerous high crime and poor schooling neighborhoods of cities like Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit, or St. Louis. Which is most important to you: doing something about public safety and raising the quality of education or, as most black politicians do, focusing energies upon President Donald Trump and who among the 20 presidential contenders will lead the Democratic Party? The average American has no inkling about the horrible conditions in which many blacks live. Moreover, they wouldn’t begin to tolerate living under those conditions themselves.
This is a brilliant column where Williams makes a bold statement.
Ultimately, the solution to high crime rests with black people.
You will never see this or any other column by Williams in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
