Please Stop Helping Us: How Liberals Make It Harder for Blacks to Succeed

Why is it that so many efforts by liberals to lift the black underclass not only fail, but often harm the intended beneficiaries?

In Please Stop Helping Us, Jason L. Riley examines how well-intentioned welfare programs are in fact holding black Americans back. Minimum-wage laws may lift earnings for people who are already employed, but they price a disproportionate number of blacks out of the labor force. Affirmative action in higher education is intended to address past discrimination, but the result is fewer black college graduates than would otherwise exist. And so it goes with everything from soft-on-crime laws, which make black neighborhoods more dangerous, to policies that limit school choice out of a mistaken belief that charter schools and voucher programs harm the traditional public schools that most low-income students attend.

In theory these efforts are intended to help the poor—and poor minorities in particular. In practice they become massive barriers to moving forward.

Please Stop Helping Us lays bare these counterproductive results. People of goodwill want to see more black socioeconomic advancement, but in too many instances the current methods and approaches aren’t working. Acknowledging this is an important first step.

Reviews

I found a lot of his points are pretty relevant to the poor underclass
I was rather concerned when it was suggested I read this book. Many times any book that includes the words “liberal” or “conservative” is just trashing the other side. He doesn’t trash anyone. The only reason one political party is being addressed is because that’s where these policies originated. He’s been quite even handed and does state that these policies start out well meaning.

Enlightend Conservative
A invaluable insight from a black man that has lived the experience he writes of. I am a conservative white man born in the 1940’s, who went through the NYC public school system.
It was never a conversation in my home or even brought to my attention that there were even differences between white and colored people….we were all the same!!
