So, if you’ve been paying attention to the latest Thought Snacks, you’re undoubtedly noticing a theme. I’m currently enduring attending a multicultural education class, so this is my passive aggressive way of responding to its question begging and ridiculous assertions. One of Sowell’s more memorable quotes comes around 10:47. Pertaining to the relationship between perceived inequities in current African American communities and slavery and Jim Crow laws, he answers, “The ease with which people draw connections between one and another is just amazing… The kids that grow up in the same place where I lived, they will not get that same education [that I received]. Now that can be blamed on somebody but it has very little to do with what happened a hundred or two hundred years ago.”
