At Least It Isn’t Balderdash

    “Once again, half of all blacks believe that racial equality either will not be achieved in their lifetimes or not at all within the U.S.,” writes Michael Dawson.

    Not least because people like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Michael Dawson keep telling them it won’t.

    Like Sharpton and Jackson, Dawson has a huge stake in blacks continuing to view themselves as victims. He directs the Center for the Study of Race, Politics and Culture at the University of Chicago. Would that job exist if blacks were fully integrated into the mainstream?

    As long as they’re not, by gum, they need a Dr. Dawson studying their plight and fielding public opinion. But I’d sure like to know how the questions were phrased, and in what order they were asked. I wouldn’t want to think I was hearing Mark Twain’s sort of statistics.
