Back when white males ruled and women and minorities were beneath them.

Nah, our society will benefit greater when all are educated and working together to promote each other. Times are tubulent now because the old and new are unable to coexist.

I do agree with the family unit part but family is also being redefined.

While your comment has validity, it completely missed Walter Williams point. He readily admitted discrimination and racism existed to a greater degree back in the 40's and 50's. His point was that even with those hardships, there was less crime, less murders, less illegitimacy, and higher academic performance in that era.

What changed???

No on is actually responsible for their actions anymore. It's always something or someone else's fault for every hardship now so then people get stuck blaming anything they can when their life sucks. That's what changed.
