Customer Review of Black Rednecks And White Liberals
An Unapologetic, Unflinching Examination of Black America
What impressed me most about this compellation of essays was how copiously researched and documented they were and the cogent manner in which they were presented. Unlike the predisposed antagonistic review below that attempts to obfuscate the reader by using words like "putative" rather than "alleged" like the rest of us great unwashed, Mr. Sowell comes to the reader without intellectual pretense. Btw, Mr. Sowell isn't "alleging" a link between white rednecks and southern blacks, he's averring it...how's that for obfuscation? <
> <
>It is convenient and utterly lacking in erudition (still obfuscating) to dismiss Sowell's contentions because they don't have at their core a proactive antagonist who (the collective "who") usurps the downtrodden at every turn. It's tantamount to that oft used contradictory argument that if the cops make an arrest in a black or Hispanic neighborhood, it's because they focus more attention on that neighborhood, but if they aren't around when a crime is committed in that same neighborhood a day later, it's because they don't care enough about what goes on there to pay it much heed. These kinds of reflexive arguments are indicative of the predisposed, un-erudite liberal elitists who seem to be quite deft at finding the root cause of all the ills visited on black America at the hands of the white majority, but are hard-pressed to explain why a continent predominated by blacks and governed by blacks has been a virtual cesspit for thousands of years. What they can't seem to grasp is that it has little to do with race, on either continent, and everything to do with culture and political/economic systems. <
> <
>I just read an incredible book by Kenneth Bucchi that illustrates in a less cerebral and more corporeal way, how people are affected more by the factors Mr. Sowell speaks of than those commonly accepted by the left side of the political isle. If you happen to read Bucchi's book, which I highly recommend you do, pay particular attention to the two main characters, Bucchi and an African-American gentleman named Box. They came from diametrically different backgrounds and were thrust into a world that neither of them could possibly have been prepared for and yet, all things being equal, they both performed most admirably and courageously. <

Sowell is The Man !
I love the stuff that Thomas Sowell writes. Basically, he is saying, it is about culture, not the color of your skin. For example, does anyone really think that if Rodney King had been a white redneck (instead of a black one), the cops would have treated him any differently ? He leads the cops on a long, dangerous chase and then makes a lunge at the cops and refuses to stay down when they order him down. Of course they beat him down. It would have gone down EXACTLY that same way if King had been a white dude with a bunch of nasty "tats" and a shaved head and a bad attitude. The truth is, the "crackers" in the South were a violent crew ready to kill if anyone "dissed" them ("crossed them". Read "The Mind of the South" if you doubt that), and lots of white guys still have that attitude. A lot of black guys do too. It seems to be really prevalent in black culture, or at least in parts of it. As Oprah said, it is not about race, it is about culture. The truth is, in the U.S. (and everywhere), you get treated the way you ACT, the way you DRESS, and your attitude. I have been in many bars where blacks and whites mingle without a second thought. Then some white "redneck" comes in, and people act like they don't want him there, because of: a. his dress, b. his attitude. It doesn't matter if you are black, white, red, yellow, or green. If you act like a redneck, you get played like one.


Stereotypes masquerading as scholarship
This book discusses a number of themes. If there is a central organizing theme it is that culture determines socioeconomic outcomes more so than other factors. The title of the book comes from a chapter describing the putative link between white rednecks and Southern blacks. <
>In it Sowell argues that black lower class culture is derived in large <
>part from the Scotch-Irish "rednecks" who emigrated from the lowlands <
>of England. This argument is based on a series of anecdotal quotes <
>whereby contemporary observers described these rednecks as lazy, <
>ignorant, violent, etc. Sowell then cites a few facts such as the <
>South lagging behind the north in industrialization and farming <
>productivity. He also describes how the Scotch-Irish were known to be <
>a violent bunch before they emigrated to the US. Based on this alone he <
>links lower class black culture to rednecks. There is no discussion <
>of the extent to which rednecks and blacks interacted. Presumably the <
>rednecks didn't own slaves so their interaction with blacks may have <
>been somewhat limited. I'm not sure about this but it is crucial that some evidence be provided. There is no empricial evidence that the <
>rednecks really were as bad as the stereotypes he describes suggests. Just a string of anecdotes and a few facts about the lagging productivity of the South. <
>There is no discussion of the possibility that the commonalities <
>between the two groups is due to their common poverty. There is no <
>discussion of just how prevalent the "redneck" culture was in the <
>South, Was it all over the South? In equal intensity? Were all Southerners descendants of the Scotch Irish? What proportion were not? Based on what he <
>wrote, this is a hunch that perhaps deserves futher research, But <
>Sowell published it as it were fact. The evidence he provides to <
>support this thesis is extremely thin. <
> <
>In another chpater on Germans he writes how Germans were leaders in <
>the Roman legions thousands of years ago and how German Americans <
>(Pershing and Eisenhower) were major figures in WWI and WWII. Based on <
>that alone he concludes something about German culture encourages <
>militarism. Ironically, one of the books Sowell cites (A Genius for War) to prove that German culture produces military genius debunks this notion and attributes German military success to the insitituiton known as the General Staff. One has to wonder if Sowell even read his sources. If so, why would he cites something that contradicts his thesis? <
> <
>I could go on, but I think you get the idea. <
> <
>THis can hardly beconsidered scholarship. <
> <
>The Hoover Institute should be embarrassed to have him as a senior <
>fellow. This scholarship is a joke.
