The object lessons of this piece can be extended to the broader issue of our assumptions about the lingering effects of slavery. The message is entirely positive: It is most useful to examine present realities, if understanding them is your objective.

Anti-free market types have claimed that deregulation of Texas electricity markets is to blame for the blackouts earlier this month.
