Mr. Williams discussed his recent book, Beyond Blame: How We Can Succeed by Breaking the Dependency Barrier, published by the Free Press. It focuses on two aspects of blame in U.S. society. He argues that people must stop blaming others for their asocial behaviors, but the second meaning is that there are some young people who have been so neglected that they are beyond blame for their behavior. He urges African Americans to take more responsibility for their lives and the futures of their children. He also claimed that affirmative action demeans minorities and blames the failures of black males on the public school system, overprotective elders, and the imbalance of social programs. close
