In the hopes of encouraging a more civil, and illuminating, discourse, here is another episode of William F. Buckley, Jr.’s “Firing Line”.
The question of racism and who is to blame for racial inequality is an old one. When one thinks of two persons of different races discussing the topic, one usually pictures two people shouting past each other and perhaps racial invectives. However, Buckley demonstrates that two serious minded individuals can have an insightful and illuminating discussion and exploration of the topic, even if they are not of the same race. Case in point, his discussion about the economics and politics of race with the brilliant Thomas Sowell.
Until next Friday.
