White Guilt: HOW BLACKS AND WHITES TOGETHER DESTROYED THE PROMISE OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT” - Shelby Steele (Book by that title, by Shelby Steele) “ARE THERE ANY BLACKS AND WHITES LEFT IN THIS COUNTRY WHO HAVE AS MUCH AS AN OUNCE OF INTEGRITY?” - George Moss (Question by me, by that title) After witnessing once again a despicable white person, Paula Deen, publicly prostrating before a despicable black person, Jesse Jackson, so he could collect her apology on behalf of black people, I am driven to ask, “Are there any blacks and whites, left in this country, who have so much as a modicum of dignity, when it comes to matters of race?” Watching Paula Deen beat herself upside her stupid head on the “Today Show,” and then reading an absolutely disgusting report that she had called Jesse Jackson, asking for forgiveness for something she said before Methuselah was born, apologizing for using a word that Jesse Jackson, and everybody else on the planet, has used, was another sickening display . ...
I just wished for: 'White Guilt' by Shelby Steele via

Omg! Steel Magnolias is on! What a prefect way to end a day that started at 830 and I was home by 11! I've loved this movie since I was a kid and I always said I wanted a daughter named Shelby because of this movie, then I met my mother in law who is more like a mother, less like the in law, whose name is Shelby, and now we finally have lil shelbi grace!
Gah Man of Steel was such a long movie, but I sure didn't mind it b/c Superman is freakin hott!! :)
A very Happy Father's Day weekend to all my Daddy friends and family members! Some people who have lost their fathers may choose to ignore this day or let it stir up anger, sadness, regret and many other emotions. I am one of those people but I choose to use this weekend to reflect on ALL the amazing memories I have of my Daddy! He was a wonderful man of God and my hero. He was not perfect but he knew that and just tried his best to love Jesus and his family with all he had. I love him and miss him so very much! My life would not be the same without him and I would not be who I am today without him. I choose happiness, joy and laughter (it's good!). Happy Father's Day! :)
Listening to a Hoover Institution podcasts with Bill Kristol and Shelby Steele. They are so scary
Rush: Democrat Party is really saying "U better not choose the route that Ben Carson, Thomas Sowell, Shelby Steele, Clarence Thomas chose."
I am a civil rights worker from sixties & admire writings of Shelby Steele & Thomas Sowell. R they tokens too? Open yr mind.
.That's all got for men like West, Sowell, Williams, Shelby Steele, West, Cain, Tim Scott, etc.: hate and stupidity.
By this time, most people are aware that, according to those on the Left, the only racists in America are white conservatives. In much the same way, they dismiss the likes of Thomas Sowell, Ward Connerly, Condoleezza Rice, Walter Williams, Larry Elder, Shelby Steele, Allen West and Dr. Ben Carson, a...
Since the social victim has been oppressed by society, he comes to feel that his individual life will be improved more by changes in society than by his own initiative. Without realizing it, he makes society rather than himself the agent of change. The power he finds in his victimization may lead him to collective action against society, but it also encourages passivity within the sphere of his personal life. -- Shelby Steele
I think I will follow the advice of Chris Rock, Bill Maher, and Jon Stewart on my way to instant wealth. Since, Marco Rubio dropped the water to be the new GOP hero of color to re-market their image. Now, I see Dr. Ben Carson doing it and now is the GOP or Tea Party flavor of color for the month. So, I will follow in their footsteps to be the new GOP token brother since I noticed it has a lucrative financial advantages just to deny polarization and racism just like the GOP do with climate change, civilization, and budget deficits. So Walter Williams, Allen West, Thomas Sowell, Condi Rice, Shelby Steele, Clarence Thomas, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Bobby Jindal, Nikki Haley, I guess there's money and extreme white conservatives are willing to give more of it to know your place as a minority, and knowing that its BS. But hey, I guess I see no problem no problem getting rich by fooling Fox News viewers to make them feel very comfortable about their negative stereotypical views of others.
Over at Powerline, Paul Mirengoff makes a sensible argument against Black History Month, echoing calls from an NRO writer. Normally, I’d be at least open to the argument, would sincerely wonder what Shelby Steele would say about it, and would be interested in discussing Mirengoff’s idea that insofar...
Black History Part II Babette style! Ron Miller: an associate dean and assistant professor of government at Liberty University, conservative activist and commentator, and author of SELLOUT: Musings From Uncle Tom's Porch. The nine-year plus veteran of the U.S. Air Force and married father of three, and by some strange blessing a friend of Babette's ;) States: "Black people who wish to have an honest dialogue about race in America aren’t treated any better. Ask Bill Cosby what happens when he speaks frankly about race and class to his fellow black Americans. Talk to Shelby Steele, John McWhorter, Thomas Sowell, Joseph C. Phillips, Star Parker, Ken Blackwell, Roy and Niger Innis, LaShawn Barber, Justice Clarence Thomas or any other black person who has dared to be candid about his or her views on race in America"

Y'know, it's a "no brainer" that white supremacists, kkk, birchers, etc. are lunatics, and have never been taken seriously, I'll not only agree to that, I'll assert that. But there's another thick line of bullish** going around that is just a feeble. It's an ideological weapon used by either persons of incredible ignorance (like white trash) or persons of ambitious agenda (kkk). They purvey emotional, incendiary demagoguery to rile up the emotions of the ignorant or feeble minded, to garner social and political support (or in some cases, to get an audience for an outrageous talk show or publication i.e.. rush limbaugh). Many are self aware of their use of demagoguery, and others are self-deluded, they actually believe the nonsense they speak. What I'm addressing is the concept that author Shelby Steele refers to as "White Guilt". It is no longer deniable that there is and will continue to be what the media refers to as a 'browning of america'. Increasingly the 'complexion' if you will, of america will be ...
A BARGAIN...Shelby Steele argues, is what Obama made with America...He would not hold America's racist past against it, if America was color blind in making him president. Obama, betrayed this easy and unspoken bargain...agitating race relations by enabling the narrative that his race is the only reason he is politically opposed.
Watching Anne Coulter on CNN, watching the epitome of rationalization of White supremacy and defense of White privilege and she just quoted Shelby Steele saying Clarence Thomas is the freest Black man in America. Amazing how a syncophant for Caucasians and White Supremacy is free, when has he taken a position as Supreme Court justice or voted against White interests or protecting White interests on high court? And where were his legal qualifications ... but that is freedom?

Shelby Steele said Obama elected cuz wasn't angry black man like or Jesse Jackson. Whites felt gratitude voting 4 him.
Shelby Steele called racial redeemer in Obama was elected cuz black+he knew it.

4 of 5 stars to White Guilt by Shelby Steele
Maybe, If I cared less, I wouldn't be so stressed.
I'll be back in ltown next week for alive at 25 😞🔫
Shelby Steele is so right about some of these dummies. ***
"Why is the educational performance gap (between blacks and whites) wider TODAY than it was during SEGREGATION ? Why ? We weren't allowed EXCUSES (Sean would also add nonsense) back then. We were expected to PERFORM." - Shelby Steele This sort of reminds me of this current administration !
For President Obama to promise Hope and Change was cynicism on a big scale. What was he going to do for the poor? For the illiterate? For the two million prisoners in our prisons? What was he going to do? All he could do was give black voters someone to believe in -- and then do NOTHING for them, and (as Shelby Steele points out) make white people feel they are expiating their sins (their imaginary sins) of racism by casting a vote for him. Mr. Obama's insight -- shaped by a lifetime of experience -- that white voters would vote for him out of shame over the past and maybe even out of a wish to be cool and hip, was historic. But the result for Americans has been a disaster: a national debt approaching the point of no return and a far deeper cynicism than before. The change that has happened, as my brilliant pal John Coyne puts it, is that ".now there is no hope." They are all scoundrels and the more they say they aren't, the darker the tunnel and the light grows fainter. God help us. I want to be back on ...
And by the way, where is the Change?
Mamet was a "factory setting" Liberal and didn't talk to a conservative until he was 60. The works that opened his mind? "White Guilt" by Shelby Steele, "The Road to Serfdom" by F Hayak and "Black Education: Myths and Fantasies" by Thomas Sowell. I have two of the three and couldn't recommend them more. I wonder how Hollywood will treat this guy?
Does being Black mean you're stupid? Obviously not, as we have Thomas Sowell, W. Williams, Shelby Steele & Allen West
Finally coming out on FB about my politics. The main reason, is because of all the posts I see that equate being Republican as being stupid at best or as racist, homophobic, sexist and jingoist, etc. In the last presidential election I was fairly silent in all regards about the candidates. There was a part of me (and with many others I knew) that felt an underlying excitement about the possibility of having a black president, for personal and political reasons. As a libertarian thinker, it was never possible for me to vote for Barack Obama. If only that candidate had been Shelby Steele, Thomas Sowell or even Colin Powell, someone who shared or came closer to matching my beliefs. I understand that the language of the left sounds fair and noble, but in real life it often plays out as anything but. I do not doubt the goodness or sincerity of those who feel more government programs are the answer, however, in my experience, they often create dead ends for those they intend to serve. For the over fort ...
Shelby Steele reacts to a question about the Reverend Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson...
You bet. As well as Herman Cain, Condoleeza Rice, Thomas Sowell and Shelby Steele
liberals in America are White Guilt apologists (Shelby Steele) and conservatives tend to be less government is better crowd
I challenge you naysayers and useful *** to pick up a copy of Edward Klein's " The Amateur" from your favorite bookseller. Its scary to see that people bought into Obama's Hope & Change more simply due to his skin color. Obama's success makes the precise point that "blackness" is a dead end. Shelby Steele quote. This book is making the Tea Party argument and is written by a left wing journalist.
RE: Phil Mushnik of the NYPost is not a racist..perpetuating racist stereotypes,violence and anti-female toxic language is..his comments echo those of people such as Bill Cosby, Juan Williams, Bob Herbert, Stanley Crouch, Shelby Steele amoung others

Hum, if one has respect for people such as Thomas Sowell, Walter E. Williams, Shelby Steele and Allen West but loathes and criticizes the alien squatting @ 1600, could it be about ideas/comportment and not about color, as the squatter and his enablers would have people believe.??
On "selective African American elitism" Via: James Robert Nielsen Baker excoriates leading public intellectuals, including Michael Eric Dyson, Henry Louis Gates Jr., Shelby Steele, Yale law professor Stephen Carter, and Manhattan Institute fellow John McWhorter, saying they pander to the powerful. He argues that they have lost touch with the reality of most African Americans. Professor Gates' statement after his July 16 arrest that "what it made me realize was how vunerable all black men are, how vunerable are all poor people to capricous forces like a rogue policeman" was a stunning example of how distant from black reality many successful African American figures like Gates have become.These elite African American figures, Baker argues, long ago placed personal gain and career advancement over the interests of the black majority. They espouse political positions palatable to a white audience, positions that ignore the radicalism and structural critiques of inequality by W.E.B. Du Bois, Martin Luther ...
"Black teenagers today are afraid of other black teenagers, not whites." Stanford University's Shelby Steele has a great essay titled "The Exploitation of Trayvon Martin". Excerpt: In fact Trayvon's sad fate clearly sent a quiver of perverse happiness all across America's civil rights establishment, and throughout the mainstream media as well. His death was vindication of the "poetic truth" that these establishments live by. Poetic truth is like poetic license where one breaks grammatical rules for effect. Better to break the rule than lose the effect. Poetic truth lies just a little; it bends the actual truth in order to highlight what it believes is a larger and more important truth. The civil rights community and the liberal media live by the poetic truth that America is still a reflexively racist society, and that this remains the great barrier to black equality. But this "truth" has a lot of lie in it. America has greatly evolved since the 1960s. There are no longer any respectable advocates of racia ...
have no idea what i was thinking reading the wsj editorial section at 1 in the morning but I'm pretty sure I'll send Uncle Tom *** Shelby Steele my rebuttal with a brick direct to his office at Stanford.
They should have sent it to Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas, or Shelby Steele:
Shelby Steele, Larry Elder, Juan Williams and their ilk provide cover for white privilege. They play their roles well too.
You know Larry Elders, Shelby Steele, Ward Connerly, Alan Keys, Ron Christie are scared of their shadows.
