Uncle Sam's Plantation: How Big Government Enslaves America's Poor and What You Can Do About It

Black Culture

"Black reality is a mirror image reflecting back on America and in this sense we are paying for the sins of our fathers. The very fact that Americans tolerate taxes to support countless illegitimate children rather than identify and deal with root causes is proof that our priorities are in desperate need of realignment."

"The pulsating primitive rhythms of rap music simply reflect the truths that are transmitted to blacks through the wafer-thin veneer of popular American culture. With all the subtlety of a sledgehammer our youth are bludgeoned with the message that it's all about money, power, and sex. Illegitimacy, youth crime, and illiteracy rates make it abundantly clear that our children are getting the message."


"The welfare system had some of its teeth taken out in 1996 under the welfare reform put forward by the Republicans in Congress, but the monster is far from dead. Time limits and work requirements are a step in the right direction, but the culture of Uncle Sam's Plantation is fed by the misguided policies of the left. As long as there are liberal ideologues in the halls of power, there is likely to be a long hard battle ahead for those of us committed to seeing poor people emancipated from a paternalistic system that robs them of their initiative, their freedom, and ultimately their hope for the future."
