Publisher's Summary

This explosive new audiobook challenges many of the long-held assumptions about blacks, about Jews, about Germans and Nazis, about slavery, and about education. Plainly written, powerfully reasoned, and backed with a startling array of documented facts, Black Rednecks and White Liberals takes on the trendy intellectuals of our times as well as historic interpreters of American life.

Through a series of essays, Sowell presents an in-depth look at key beliefs behind many policies and trends. He presents eye-opening insights into the development of the ghetto culture, a culture cheered on toward self-destruction by white liberals who consider themselves "friends" of blacks.

Black Rednecks and White Liberals is the capstone of decades of outstanding research and writing on racial and cultural issues by Thomas Sowell.

I Was Enthrolled

if you're looking for a neo-marxist, politically correct approach to history and culture, you've come to the wrong place. But if you care enough about issues ranging ranging from the education of blacks and the real history of slavery to actually want to make a positive difference instead of just playing politics, then you will not be disappointed. Thomas Sowell is the greatest black intellectual that I have ever read, and as far as I am concerned, he is one of the most important thinkers of our time.

Stellar book, stellar performance

There's a strange realization you get when you're just a dozen minutes into this book. It's not about what you think it's about, but what it's about is truly mind-altering.

I promise you will change your view of culture, and history, forever.

This copy is easy to listen to, too. Clear, well-recorded, and convincingly performed.

Should have been mandatory reading in high school

While you can probably say that about most of Thomas Sowell's books, this book has always stood out for me among all of his work. Hugh Mann is a simply fantastic narrator for this work and his flow through each chapter only enhances Dr. Sowell's work. I really can't recommend this book enough.

Sowell’s clarity of perspective.

Some repetition but any person seeking for answers to the difference between the Progressives dogma which is more often than not based in the quick sand of what they consider altruistic truth without facts and no research, and what is the factual truth, should read this book . 📕

Facts over feelings.

Should be mandatory reading for high schools all over the world. Painstakingly well researched facts drawing for historical data from all over the world. A must read.

A must-read for today's knights.

Amazing cleansing insight of Thomas Sowell brought into a spectrum of doubts.
Another, perhaps best Black Hero for all peoples.
