Blaming the victim

I am currently reading Sowell's new book "Black Rednecks and White Liberals" (which is in fact a collection of larger essays). In his recent column he refers to the critics of the book. Like always he dedicated large part of his analysis to cultural factors which are often, too often negative. He reacts to the criticism:

This is not about "blaming the victim." Nobody can be blamed for the culture he was born into. But neither should he be kept mired in that culture, in the name of "identity" or with the pretense that all cultures are equal.
