Destroyed by Welfare
Williams on the problem of black insecurity.
Walter E. Williams: “According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, between 1976 and 2011, there were 279,384 black murder victims. Contrast this with the fact that black fatalities during the Korean War (3,075), Vietnam War (7,243) and wars since 1980 (about 8,200) total about 18,500. Young black males have a greater chance of reaching maturity on the battlefields than on the streets of Philadelphia, Chicago, Detroit, Oakland, Newark and other cities. Black political power and massive city budgets have done absolutely nothing to ameliorate this problem of black insecurity. … The black family managed to survive several centuries of slavery and generations of the harshest racism and Jim Crow, to ultimately become destroyed by the welfare state. … The cultural problems that affect many black people are challenging and not pleasant to talk about, but incorrectly attributing those problems … condemns millions of blacks to the degradation and despair of the welfare state.”
