Jason Riley, “please stop helping us” (pdf)
This is a book by Jayso L. Riley (an editorial board member at Wall Street Journal) which was published on January 5, 2016, and has received over 1,166 ratings over the past few years. The book describes how well-intentioned welfare programs are pulling behind black Americans.
Minimum wage laws may raise the people’s earnings on employment but they unreasonable number of blacks are out of the labor force. Moreover, fewer black college graduates have also hindered affirmative action taken in higher education purposed to address the past discrimination.
Therefore, soft-on-crime laws result in making the black neighborhood more criminalized to policies that restrict school alternatives out of the wrong trust that charter schools and voucher programs cause damage to traditional public schools that most low-income students go to.
