Firing Line with William F. Buckley Jr. “What Now for the Ghetto?”

Firing Line Videos, Hoover Institution, taped on July 24, 1973, uploaded to YouTube on March 2, 2015.

Guest: Thomas Bradley


Thomas Bradley was the first black mayor of a predominantly white major city; previously he had been a Los Angeles policeman, and sat on the City Council. This discussion begins, inevitably, with the question of race, but quickly moves to topics such as education, crime, and the impending traffic crisis if Angelinos can’t be persuaded to carpool or ride public transportation.
