NEWSBUSTERS: In your book you claim liberal policies actually destroyed marriage and legitimacy in black families.
COULTER: Oh, yes, yes, yes. I touch on that in the first chapter in which I rely heavily on the great book by Thomas Sowell Black Rednecks, White Liberals, which is an hilarious book because it's a lot about the folk ways of the Scots-Irish my people in the south. They were a very different breed than the northeastern British, mostly from East Anglia. These hillbilly ways were transferred because that is where the vast majority of black people were living. This is the environment they were marinating in for centuries.
When white hillbillies went north, people would just say, No, you can't move into this neighborhood. We're not hiring you. We hear that southern accent. That was the process a lot of immigrants to America went through where there was a small amount of discrimination in order to make them better, stronger, Americans. Better people.
As soon as blacks were about to go through the same immigrant experience that white southerners had gone through, and that all immigrants had gone through, that's when liberals decided, No, we're going to help blacks by saying this is part of their native, African folk ways. No, it wasn't. It was from Europe. They got the bad habits of the Scots-Irish, but at least the Scots-Irish because they didn't have liberals protecting them had it beaten out of them. And interestingly, black marital rates were more likely to be higher than white marital rates up until the Great Society programs.

There’s Scot-Irish hillbillies... and there’s “The IQ Controversy.” Maybe both met.
Nice pic. Gotta love the Coulter.
