Black Intellectuals That Leftists Donít Want You to Know About
IWB ^ | Daniel Carter

Posted on 07/15/2018 1:16:41 PM PDT by davikkm

Over the past several decades, the left has convinced United States citizens that it is the only option for black and other minority voters. If any blacks dare to deviate from this narrative, they get labeled as an “Uncle Tom” or worse. Fortunately, for the benefit of America’s black community, many black intellectuals have risen to prominence who challenge the left’s perceived ownership of the black vote. And while I do not think the color of someone’s skin matters when seeking truth, these intellectuals provide a perspective and persuasive ability that can’t be matched by others.

Thomas Sowell

Perhaps one of the greatest intellectuals of our time is Thomas Sowell. Sowell is an economist and social theorist who is currently a Senior Fellow at the Hoover Institute. He has written bestselling books including “Black Rednecks and White Liberals”, “Basic Economics: A Citizens Guide to the Economy” and “Discrimination and Disparities”. Sowell has built an illustrious career by pointing out the economic illiteracy of the left. For this reason, you will almost never hear him mentioned by mainstream leftists. He is a powerful black man armed with economic facts; a dangerous weapon against the left.

1) they should remember to stay on the Dem Plantation if they want to get their heads patted by the power structure.

2)Louis Farrakhan said once about education for young African Americans to advance in society:
Just put that basketball through that hoop!

(True quotation but he meant it ironically due to bitterness about blacks being elevated in the US only for entertainment and sports for white ticket buyers. Funny saying, though.)

Of the three, Coleman Hughes is the only one I hadn’t heard of before. I shall be watching him with great interest.

Uncle Tom was whipped to death for refusing to whip other slaves. How did it become a pejorative.

Anyone who uses that phrase, I have to ask, “Did you read the book?”

He is a hero in my book.

Blacks don’t understand that they have been replaced as a useful grievance group by ILLEGALS. Blacks have burned down cities for far less. The liberal social re-engineering of blacks and women has destroyed America.

One of Thomas Sowell’s BFFs is Dr. Walter E. Williams, Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason Univ. in VA, Retired. A brilliant man and a delight to listen to him speak; as is Dr. Sowell.

Thomas Sowell is one of the smartest and most reasoning people in America.The Black Elite hate him and probably so do those who consider themselves elite in America both Democrat and Republican. I wish instead of Obama we would have elected a real black with the reasoning powers of Mr. Sowell.

“I have a friend that is blind, she works for goodwill and has not had a raise in 30 years.”

I would recommend that you read either Sowell or Williams. They will explain to you why she hasn’t gotten a raise.

I LOVE these guys. But I give the edge to Williams because he has the right view on the Confederacy.

I have half a dozen of Sowell’s books and they’re all brilliant. Been reading him for decades. And Williams is brilliant as well and funnier, and that’s saying something. Coleman Hughes I did not know until this article, which is why I love FR so.

Sowell’s reasoning powers failed us in 2016. He was a die-hard Trump hater. One of National Review’s Gang of 22 Never Trumpers.

His day in the sun has passed.

You may be right but no one I know has ever made every decision correctly. Of course I did not know he was against Trump but that does not lesson his judgment in my opinion. Quite a few people now admit they were wrong about Trump.

Thomas Sowell made some great contributions in economics. I scanned through one of his economics books and it was well done.

He misread Donald Trump. Here is one story he wrote that got a lot of attention at the time.

I agree to a certain extent with Sowell and I consider him honorable as well as brilliant. But if you look at what is offered by each party they are always those most controlled by the rich.
Fact is I will surprise you and say the rich should have all their funds taken by a real honest government that looks out for America first. I know how that sounds but do not have time to explain. Members of the hierarchy in Congress are looking out for the wealth of self and friends. Those who are considered outsiders are on the money but if they stick around they will change because they can get nothing done unless they agree with those in control. I have very little faith in those of either party running our government or the intelligence agencies. I have little doubt our government feeds us eroneous information when it comes to intelligence and when the screw up they cover up. Both Putin and Trump look out for their own country. I do not know how Putin is controlled but I honestly believe Trump is trying to look out for the real backbone of America.
