How Blue America Is Failing Black Americans - The American Interest
Read the whole thing to see why McWhorter thinks the Great Society programs and their descendants have been so unsuccessful.  One important takeaway is that blue governance is failing black America. In places with Democrat-controlled blue model-style governments, low-income African Americans are still struggling mightily. There have been some successes, but not many.

Trump is a disaster, but talk of a “whitelash” is misguided — and counterproductive - Vox
However, were they "racists" in any sense that would justify affixing such a contemptuous label upon someone trying their best in this vale of tears called life? Certainly not. They did not wish it were still 1950. Plenty of them, and people in their family, were dating or married to people of color. And it wasn't, and never had been, an issue.

Because of geography and time, I don't know these people well anymore, but I am quite sure of two things. One is that some of them voted for Trump. The second is that they did not think of Barack Obama as "that nigger in the White House," not even "on some level" or "intersectionally." They were almost certainly toasting with champagne that September night in 2008 as I was. If they voted for Trump this time, it was a matter of their priorities, not hating black people.

‘We know how to teach black kids’ — Joanne Jacobs
We know how to teach black kids – and other disadvantaged students — but we don’t do it, writes John McWhorter. Starting in 1968, a huge federal study called Project Follow Through compared different methods of teaching at-risk K-3 children: Direct Instruction (DI), a scripted phonics program using repetition and student participation, worked much better than anything else for all students, but especially low-income black students. DI has continued to work where ever it’s been used, McWhorter writes. But DI defies the conventional wisdom of education schools, which “keep alive the canard that teaching poor kids to read is an elusive, complex affair requiring a peculiarly intense form of superhuman dedication and an ineffable brand of personal connection with young people,” McWhorter writes. “In a better America, schools that do not use DI to teach kids from poor households should be seen as vaguely criminal. People should point them out as they drive by them, like crack houses.”

Those Who Broke it Can't Always Fix It - National - The Atlantic
"But the minority of blacks who remain poor have problems other than racism--criminal records, early childbearing, dropping out. If the government can fix those, we haven't yet figured out how. Unfortunately, we haven't figured out how any one else can fix them, either. Very early childhood interventions seem to offer the best shot, but they make modest gains at enormous expense, and the government is already juggling a lot of priorities with limited tax dollars, so I'm not all that hopeful that we're ready to invest $20,000 per kid (about what the Perry Pre-School project cost in today's dollars) in early interventions that will pay off twenty to thirty years later, when fewer of the kids commit crimes."

Guilt Trip | The New Republic
"Buck’s terrific book is longer on analysis than prescription; but its analysis comprises such invaluable history, and so deftly counters any fears underlying the pretense that the “acting white” charge is fictitious, that I cannot imagine we will soon see another book so utterly necessary on what used to be called the Race Question. Buck has cleared the ground of many illusions and innuendos, and this can only help us to get closer to a solution for the vast problem that still remains."

Obama pessimism. My favorite part is when John McWhorter psycho-analyzes those who see racism at every corner. His argument: it comes from an overall lack of self esteem and a sense of feeling superior. Aside from that an overall okay bloggingheads; not a must listen to.
