Writing for the Chattanooga Free Press, Walter Williams, an economics professor at George Mason University, agrees with the foreign correspondent, now based in Jakarta. “Assuming I would have been born anyway,” Williams wrote, “my wealth and my liberties . . . are greater as a result of being born in the United States than they would be in any country in Africa. In other words, while slavery was a brutal institution, I can be thankful for its results.”
Walter E Williams....he just rocks. When he fills in for Rush, it’s awesome. Why he doesn’t have his own show (or Mark Steyn, for that matter.) is beyond me.
