I'm spending my morning on the run, so won't blog 'til later today. I will quickly tell you about a great book I'm reading: John McWhorter's Winning the Race : Beyond the Crisis in Black America. In it, McWhorter asks why African Americans create a culture of failure at precisely the time the barriers that had hindered them for so long (legal and social discrimination) were falling away in the 1960s. He then answers that question in compelling detail (sometimes too much). He disproves most of the Leftist theories that are commonly trotted out, and demonstrates that blacks were deeply affected by the protest/dissent culture of the 1960s. It's a great read and well worth the time (because it's also a long read).
