Black Rednecks and White Liberals
by Thomas Sowell

A collection of seminal essays about ethnic groups and slavery. The best ones are: “Are Jews Generic?” which describes similarities among middleman minorities such as Chinese, Lebanese, Jews, and Koreans, “The Real History of Slavery” which explains that it was everywhere until the West abolished it. “Germans and History” which makes the point that nothing in the history of Germans before Hitler would have made the Holocaust predictable. “Black Education: Achievements, Myths and Tragedies” which recites past educational success stories for Black Americans versus present wide-scale failure.
