THOMAS SOWELL: The Myth of Proportional Racial and Gender Distribution

From the documentary series Firing Line, Economist Thomas Sowell explains here in the early 1980’s to host William F. Buckley, Jr. the irrational inclination of the Government to believe that racial distribution should be uniform throughout all areas and disciplines.

In other words, if the U.S. has a 12% black racial composition, then CEO’s, Police Officers, Basketball Players, Members of Congress, Teachers, Pianists and Chefs… should reflect a proportional 12%, otherwise there is an indication of ‘Discrimination’…. That is simply an irrational supposition.
