Thomas Sowell addresses the legacy of slavery in this conglomeration of clips from the intellectual giant. Are the current racial disparities that plague our society the legacy of slavery?
It’s estimated that 17 million East Africans were sold into slavery: “Most people still have the so-called Transatlantic [slave] trade by Europeans into the New World in mind. But in reality the Arab-Muslim slavery was much greater,” N’diaye said.
This reminds me of how Thomas Sowell said that those who complain about Eurocentrism turn around and speak of slavery slavery with an exclusively Eurocentric perspective.
On the Anti-Visions podcast I am reading through Thomas Sowell’s essay, “The Real History of Slavery” from his book “Black Rednecks and White Liberals.” I am reading straight through but only posting it in 10 minute segments at a time. It is a remarkable study from a remarkable man! Thanks to Encounter Books for permission. Here is a link is you’d like to purchase the book. My goal is to publish one each Sunday evening or Monday morning.
