Poisoning the well of Race Relations

Want to have a place here on my blog to present a series of articles by Thomas Sowell about how bringing up race in politics usually only serves to poison relations between different ethnic groups, which in times past has led to disastrous results. Here's his article Race and Politics. Parts two through four of that series of articles are here, here, and here.

Race relations may not be where we may want them to be, and pockets of racism may stubbornly persist in the U.S., and blacks and Latinos may have a lot of cultural catching-up to do to attain the levels of prosperity of our white counterparts; yet we would be better served as a nation if we took note of the warnings of Thomas Sowell, if we don't want all our progress in the area of race-relations to go down the drain.
