Please Stop Helping Us - Jason L. Riley

How has having a black president changed America? What does the American black culture look like and how does it influence those who live in it? Are social programs like unemployment really helping the poor? Does mixing kids from different neighborhoods at school help? Is affirmative action helping people reach goals they wouldn't otherwise reach?

In this provocative work, Riley takes a deeper look at the ideas most people consider are improving opportunities to show how they may just be hurting those they are meant to help. For anybody looking for a different perspective on social and government policies I think this is a fantastic book to get the wheels turning. The author is not suggesting abolishment of these policies by any means, but he is suggesting it's time to revisit them to see if there is a better way to serve those who most need help.
