Jason Riley, a writer for the Wall Street Journal, as recently published a new book entitled Please Stop HelpingUs: How Liberals Make it Harder for Blacks to Succeed. I write about the book in this Forbes piece.
Riley makes a strong case that most everything that liberals do to help blacks (and other minorities) actually harms them. Alas, those liberals just like policies that sound nice and make them feel good. Moreover, black leaders would rather maintain their alliances with liberal groups (such as Big Labor) than oppose damaging laws and educational policies.
