Bruce Bartlett and Casey Lartigue question whether the Republican Party will ever have a chance at challenging the Democrats' overwhelming success among African-American voters.


"Race and the State," featuring Bruce Bartlett and Casey Lartigue.

Is government more likely to be the friend or adversary of minority groups? Has it been liberals, conservatives, or libertarians like William Lloyd Garrison and Frederick Douglass who have been the most consistent defenders of everyone's rights? What does history suggest would be the best public policy for racial minorities in the 21st century?
