Jason Riley: ‘Black Americans Have Been Failed by Good Intentions’

“My beef with the black left is that they want to keep the focus on what government or Washington or politicians or whites in general can do for blacks – instead of what blacks can do for themselves,” says Jason Riley, author of Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make it Harder for Blacks to Succeed. 

Riley also argues that America’s infamous drug war doesn’t explain black-on-black violence and ending it won’t transform urban America in the way libertarians insist. He also argues against the minimum wage laws and how an intact family unit is actually the best “anti-poverty” program society could ever hope for.
