Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"Dr. Thomas Sowell, black and eighty years old, displays no signs of tiredness in writing columns--but when he does, Anthony Bradley shows in Black and Tired why he should be Sowell's successor. Dr. Bradley trumps liberal opponents with facts and wit, and does so within a Christian worldview that allows him to go deeper than conventional economics allows."  
--Marvin Olasky, Editor-in-chief, WORLD


"The fact that Dr. Anthony Bradley is black is evident, but that he might be considered tired is altogether dubious. I am hard pressed to believe that a man who is in any way fatigued could pen the following sentence. 'Notwithstanding their rhetoric of freedom and empowerment, many prominent black leaders appear content to send blacks back to the government plantation--where a small number of Washington elites make decisions for blacks who are not in the room.' This passion and insight comes from a vigor borne of a commitment to the well being of a people all too often preyed upon by the very ones who claim to be promoters of their liberation. An anomaly sufficient to fatigue any of us. Yet, here is Anthony Bradley's vibrant and wise voice on the matters domestic and international, moral, cultural, and economic. This volume is a welcome addition to the dialogue."
--Fr. Robert A. Sirico, President, The Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is one of the most helpful summations of race issues, political issues and religious issues I've read in a very long time. Bradley communicates so well to the person who is being introduced to these topics as well as to those in the academy who need depth and detail. From a white person's perspective, he clarifies much of the surface, sound-byte nonsense we hear on 24-hour cable news and explains the bigger, complex reasons for the moral degradation in this country and its systemic effects. Regardless of whether the reader agrees with any or all of his conclusions, it's a thoroughly researched work that must be at least be read and referenced whenever this topic or neighboring topics are addressed.

The book is well written and I recommend it. However, in reading it you get the feeling that the author is not COMPLETELY in touch with what is going on with certain "black leaders".
