The Racist New Deal

Email Print

David Beito points out in Blacks Versus the New Deal that the leading black newspaper of the time was highly critical of the New Deal. State intervention led to more discrimination against low wage black labor. See the tragi-comic cartoon that Beito found critical of the National Recovery Administration (NRA). If you can get a hold of a copy see the great Walter Williams on The State Against Blacks. When are social democrats (left-“liberals”) going to figure out, to borrow a Marxist phrase, that they are objectively racist?
