Is Obama ready for America ?

May 5, 2008

Walter E. Williams, Ph.D. writes …

While not every single vestige of racial discrimination has disappeared, Obama and the Rev. Wright are absolutely wrong in suggesting that racial discrimination is anywhere near the major problem confronting a large segment of the black community. The major problems are: family breakdown, illegitimacy, fraudulent education and a high rate of criminality. To confront these problems, that are not the fault of the larger society, requires political courage, and that’s an attribute Obama and most other  polititians lack.

“The care of human life and happiness,

and not their destruction,

is the first and only

legitimate object of

good government.”

— President Thomas Jefferson, 1809
