An Opponent of “Quack Multiculturalism”

George Mason University economics professor Walter Williams writes here about a surprising book, Meeting the Psychoeducational Needs of Minority Students. 

The author is University of Missouri professor Craig Frisby, who is in the Department of Educational, School and Counseling Psychology. His book attacks “quack multiculturalism” which is exactly what we find at almost every college campus — the “Kumbayah, light-and-fluffy, bean-counting” nonsense that creates jobs for administrators who then promote “the falsehoods and distortions that dominate today’s college agenda.”

Williams sums Frisby’s book up this way: “My read of his book is that it supplies more evidence that the actions of soft-minded, guilty white liberals have done far more harm to black people than racists of the past could have ever done.”

Although it doesn’t affect the cogency of either Frisby’s book or Williams’ review, both are black.
