Bill Buckley seemed to be making the case that Africans were better off in America than they are in Africa or anywhere else in the world. Which may be true, but the fact is the African slaves didn’t have a choice whether or not to live in America, or stay back in Africa and build their own countries and societies. And do well on their own and create their own wealth. Which is one of the things that Malcolm X argued for which was for African-Americans to create their. Own wealth and build their own communities in America.You can’t ask for a better debate about American civil and equal rights than to have Bill Buckley on the Right and I guess Jim Baldwin on the Left. Even though I don’t how far to the left Baldwin was overall in his life.
