Reason Party: James Baldwin vs. William F. Buckley: Debating African-American Life in a European World

September 7, 2013

Oxford
African-Americans being forced to live under a system that was created by Europeans. Having no choice in whether to come over there and live in the new world or not. And living under European-Americans and under their discrimination in many cases. Not saying that Africans would be better off back in Africa had they not have been forced to leave there for America. As some right-wingers have implied that Africans have it better in America than anywhere else in the world. Which is debatable anyway, but the point here is that they never had a choice. They were forced to leave Africa for a strange world to them that they knew nothing about before they cam here and were forced to live in slavery.

And what I believe the Right was arguing here was that Africans, or has they called them Negros back then, had it better in America than anyone else. Despite Jim Crow, forced desegregation, being turned down for jobs and service simply, because of their race and complexion. Being forced to go to rotten schools and live in rotten housing, because again they were being denied access to a good education and good jobs. And yet the Right is arguing here that African-Americans had it better in America than Africans anywhere else in the world, especially in third-world Africa. But again that is off point even if its correct. Because why should be people be forced to live in poverty simply because of the race and complexion.
