On April 6th, 2005, Thomas Sowell was interviewed on CSPAN’s Q&A show about his book Black Rednecks and White Liberals which traces the history of Scotch-Irish and African American culture in the USA to the English borderlands during the colonial era. He also discusses his experience at the Hoover Institution, the 9-11 Terror Attack, his evolving work on Intellectuals and Society and deflating the myth of Trickle Down Theory.

    Hard to believe Sowell is now 86 years old. Sad that I have only discovered him in the past few years. Why do people like this get relegated to relative obscurity when phony intellectuals get elevated to prominence?

    It breaks my heart that this man isn’t THE standard textbook. That so few know who he is, travesty. The breadth of his knowledge, his skill in humble delivery of enlightening facts continues to settle the opinions on as many topics as he touches on.

    Sowell seems to be a great man. One of the most interesting intellectuals I have ever come across in video form. I think it's sad that I haven't heard about him until recently. I've taken multiple classes in political science and never once was he mentioned. This guy should be taught in universities across the country. Truly he is one of the most intelligent and influential intellectuals of the last forty years. I believe history will see him as such.

    It’s interesting how the media was attacking Bush in 2005 just like they are attacking Trump right now:

    Hacking the election, racism…etc.

    Not surprised that he is an orphan. An adopting couple will usually at least try to give a child the love and upbringing that an otherwise single parent, or a deadbeat couple may not be suited for, or not have the desire for.

    What Sowell says around the 44:00 mark is why Asians are excluded from all this social justice nonsense: Asians are largely successful independent of state intervention. Asians make statists and race victimizers look bad because they defy the narrative that America is inherently racist and sexist.

    This presenter needs to be careful — he's in real danger of winning the most charismatic interviewer award..

    The fact that the so-called black community has buried this great man should tell you everything you need to know about that broken culture.
