Duration: 4 hours 4 minutes
Armed with vast statistical research, economist Thomas Sowell deftly refutes the key assumptions on which the civil-rights movement as we know it today was erected, "that discrimination leads to poverty and other adverse social consequences and . . . that adverse statistical disparities imply discrimination." He probes with an almost surgical precision the fundamental racial issues of affirmative action.
