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

by Jason L. Riley

Book Reviews

"From affirmative action to welfare, a devastating examination of the real-life effects of good intentions gone terribly wrong. This thoughtful, lucid, and often restrained account of the wreckage produced by racial politics marks Jason Riley as one of the nation's rising political writers."
-- Charles Krauthammer, nationally syndicated columnist and Fox News commentator

"Boom! A combative, conservative shot to the jaw of liberal dogma about black America. Riley is brash in calling out the phony leaders, the false prophets. He exposes the weak thinking behind so many of the smiling faces with good intentions that lead to bad results for those of us most in need of help."
-- Juan Williams, author of Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Years, 1954–1965 and Muzzled: The Assault on Honest Debate

"There are people who labor under the impression that the last word on race issues in modern America is work by writers like Cornel West and Michael Eric Dyson. Too few understand that after one has sampled them, true enlightenment can come only by also reading work like this book by Jason Riley. The current civil rights orthodoxy is longer on custom than concrete goals. Please Stop Helping Us shows us why."
-- John McWhorter, professor of linguistics and Western civilization at Columbia University and author of Losing the Race: Self-Sabotage in Black America and Authentically Black: Essays for the Black Silent Majority

"Jason Riley has written a superb book about government policies that are intended to help blacks, but have instead gone on to injure them with the helping hand. I was particularly taken by the sophistication, scholarly competence, and fresh thinking around these very complex issues. This fine book is a major contribution to our thinking about black socioeconomic progress."
-- Robert L. Woodson Sr., founder and president, Center for Neighborhood Enterprise
