Rethinking Integration, Rethinking Civil Rights

Cosby On Friday, I linked to a new article in The Atlantic (‘This Is How We Lost to the White Man’) about Bill Cosby's brand of black conservatism.  It explains how these ideas flowered in Cosby, and scrutinizes the truths and inaccuracies of what Cosby is saying happened and recommending for the future (which is in essence to stop relying on public programs to bring up poor black families). Makes you understand the little-understood support for vouchers among some parts of the African-American community that usually vote Democratic.  Makes you wonder if all that school integration really did much good, heretical as that is to say in most quarters.
