Facts About Slavery They Don't Teach You At School

Thomas Sowell is an American economist, social theorist, and senior fellow at Stanford University's Hoover Institution. This short video has information that everyone should hear and understand in regards to the history of slavery. 

Though he was born in North Carolina on June 30, 1930, Thomas Sowell grew up in Harlem, New York. Of course, while he is known as an intellectual gift to us today, because of hard times and family issues, he dropped out of Stuyvesant High School before enlisting in the Marine Corps during the Korean War. 

When he returned from overseas, he enrolled at Harvard University, graduating magna cum laude in 1958. He received a Master's Degree from Columbia University in 1959 and earned his doctorate in economics from the University of Chicago in 1968.

Thomas Sowell had served on the faculties of several universities, including Cornell University and the University of California, Los Angeles. Since 1980, he has worked at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, where he served as the Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow on Public Policy. 

Thomas Sowell writes from a Libertarian–Conservative perspective. Sowell has written more than thirty books, and his work has been widely anthologized. He was a National Humanities Medal recipient for an innovative scholarship that incorporated history, economics, and political science.

The above bio for Thomas Sowell was sent to me by a friend who asked that I share this video.

As I said before, this short video has information that everyone should hear and understand in regards to the history of slavery. It appears no one race has the corner on grievances pertaining to being slaves. And also, it appears slave masters were of every race as well. 

I wish more people would watch this.
