"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."
"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 em-powerment, 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."
