Dr. Williams on the Blue Model

"Detroit's social pathology is seen in other cities with large black populations such as Philadelphia, Newark, Baltimore and Chicago. These are cities where blacks have for years dominated the political machinery in the forms of mayors, police chiefs, superintendents of schools and city councilmen, plus they've been Democrats. It's safe to conclude that the focus on political power doesn't do much for ordinary blacks."

It's easy to see how a minority group that suffered at the hands of the government might conclude that the secret to success to gain power over the same government that was the agent of oppression. However, the same corrupting effect that led the majority to use government to do evil has corrupted those minority leaders who seized power with the idea of helping those like them. Power corrupts.
