Hoover fellow Shelby Steele on the price of his convictions

This might be old news to some of you. I have never actually heard of the guy. It’s people like this that are not afraid to speak their convictions when those convictions “offend” the left’s politically correct policemen and women.

I heard Glenn Beck talking about this guy. The link below is from 1999, but still very relevant today. It is interesting how it is representative of what is going on today with Obama touting black vs. white, rich vs. poor, etc. It’s sad that those that claim victimization are actually guilty of practicing it against their fellow man. Liberals are going to lose this argument. Their dear leader Obama is to thank for all of it.

“Very simply, then, a black conservative is a black who dissents from the victimization explanation of black fate when it is offered as a totalism when it is made the main theme of group identity and the raison d’être of a group politics.”
