More From Dr. Thomas Sowell On Academic Elites

"What you see most clearly in the academic world are people who don't think that this country is a great country." ~ Thomas Sowell (Just another hayseed, reactionary rube?)

Something many readers may not know about Dr. Sowell - he grew up in Harlem and shares that, during the time he attended public schools in Harlem, they "were among the best in the country."

Once again, piercing, insightful, revealing, and damning. Sowell is a treasure.

It seems to me that Mr. Sowell has become an expert on elites.

Yes, the Nation's leading.

Well, at least he knows an elitist (or an elitist remark) when he sees one. One of my favorite books of his is an old one: "Black Rednecks & White Liberals." I recommend it.
