Caller Thinks We Have an Idiot Problem, Courtesy of the Marxist Education System

"You just said that you despised Democrats. You know, we have a voting problem. No, we have an idiot problems, just like Shelby Steele set on your show. Talking about racism, he said. There's going to be racist. There's always gonna be idiots in our country. Unfortunately, this public school system run by the progressives have mass produced a full market generation of idiots. I've just got engaged in a conversation with my daughter. She's a rising sophomore in college, and she she decided she is in the vegetarian. I asked her why, and she started down the thing the environment corporations coach, so I kept going and going and going. I said Thanks, she goes. No, I don't really think that's true. I was like, no, it is true and I have the facts. I can show you. I've got the receipt of them, Bongino says. That's like I'll show you the receipt and I'll prove it to you. And basically what? It boiled down to acid. So you're you're in favor of Marxism said. Basically, the things you don't like cattle shed what corporations are bad. I said, Well, corporations are the poster child of capitalism with that, well, they can do better. They can They make lots of money. They can do this. So what They have all that money and they got to put it out there not going to be able to continue to thrive. So, basically, nobody is going to have anything if you do that, and well, I don't think that's true. Well, I do. So you don't know anything about economics, Correct? No, Not really. All right. I'm in the book story right now looking for I've lost my copy of Thomas Souls Basic economics in a basement club. Find a new copy of that, and because of their just complete ignorance of everything and not learning anything. I'm buy three copies of American Marxism tonight because my kids despite everything I've said, think I'm the dumbest guy in the world. Yet I'm the one who's out there hitting the streets busting my tail, making a paycheck, making away keeping a roof over the head clothes on their back and a Braille against everything that my country and I stand for. Absolutely brilliant statement

"But an interview with Shelby Steele was a conservative who is black. How equality lost to equity. Tony Katz. Tony caps today. It's great to be with you 833 got Tony 8334688669. And how we're hearing this equity conversation everywhere with that's what we need to fight for. Not equality, but equity Well, Equity Justin. It's In its most simplest form, when when you hear the word equity Very often, it's thought of in like your home in terms of value. It's thought of in terms of money terms, and it's clear that equity is just another. Look at wealth redistribution. And I say this, knowing that I'm going to get yelled at by a whole bunch of people and let him yell. Let them yell, the people who are pushing and screaming about things like like Equity and Allies ship. Who won't take a look at the real fundamentals of things like black lives matter. And actually get angry with you for noting and knowing these things, well, they're not my problem. This is different in a conversation about race and racism, different conversation about historical perspective and value necessary and being a good friend. I'm not discussing any of those things. I'm discussing the idea. That equity. Pushes the idea, especially when you see office of equity, diversity and inclusion. You see a lot of businesses, putting that together and doing hiring in that way states doing hiring that way university's doing in hiring in that way, this is nonsense. I would say it directly to people's faces to politely. I don't think they're bad people, possibly I don't know them. But if you have an office of equity You're you're making an argument. That somehow, in order to have a decent society, one person must give something up to allow another person. That thing No, and that becomes political, because we see government thought do that. The idea of evening it all out. Remember when, as the Biden administration is now discussing the health care is a right if health care is a right, that means the doctor is a slave. And I defy anyone to argue that position 833 got Tony 8334688669. If health care is a right, that means you have the right to medical care whenever you want it. Which means somebody has to provide it to you. How does that happen? You're not talking about an exchange here. Ah, goods for services. You're not talking about entering into contract. You know the idea of of somebody you know, selling their wares or their knowledge. No. You're saying that the doctor must provide it If it is indeed a right Therefore the doctor is a slave. That's what they're saying. That's what they believe. I oppose that. The argument being made by Mr Steele. Is that the idea of equity has no meaning. And promises no progress. It makes it real easy to call people bigots. And he has a cold conversation about race in terms of his own life in his own history, so worthy conversation. But equity Equity is is about saying If you disagree, you're a bigot. It's just a way of engaging. A new bit of words speak to be able to determine that other people are are guilty of whatever it is someone else's is describing of them. If you don't believe in equality, But you believe in equity. You don't actually believe in anything. You just want to destroy people who may be getting in your way of getting the things that you want to get. And that's why I make the argument that these equity and diversity and inclusion officers, they just thinking universities. Other places. This is this is going to create more harm than good. Maura Division. Maura hates more separating people more revenge society apart, and that's the last thing that we need. So, too. Does this conversation of being an ally and ally ship? I bring this up? Because the school district where my Children go to school has one of these officers. And they are going to be having a day long seminar for teachers about Ally ship. Now I know that the whole conversation of being an ally is a bigoted conversation. I describe it as well. What makes now I want ally is someone who does what they're told without complaint, and if they speak up, we tell them that they don't understand. Right. Remember, if you're guilty for speaking out and you're guilty of silence. You're guilty, no matter what you do. From the NIH. In the office of Equity Diversity, including inclusion. The act of Allied ship is quote when a person of privilege works in solidarity in partnership with the marginalized group of people to help take down the systems that challenged the group's basic rights, equal access and ability to thrive in our society. I don't know what those are. I'm not so sure. You know what those are either.

Toward the largest society as the authentic way to be black in America is to hate on America. Bullets. Interesting is interested us in the film is that here you have this 18 year old boy shot by a white policeman. Thousands of people descend on the small town of Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of ST Louis, at the same time in Chicago in the same year over 3000. Boys were shot.

"Welcome back. I'm talking to Shelby Steele, The author of many, many books, including White guilt, which in some ways sums up. Ah, A bit of what we're talking about today, doesn't it? Ah, Dr Steele, I guess when you talk about white guilt you as a black American speak about white guilt from a different point of view. Tell us a little bit about that, because I think that As you said earlier. It is. Ah, It's a very powerful, intoxicating, um It's an intoxicating temptation for people who want to shut someone up to use what we call white guilt, and it's an intoxicating temptation for white people to buy into it. That's the easy path. Yes, Yes, It is a quick recap when it began. I think in the 19 sixties when the civil rights victories occurred. We passed civil rights Bill. 1000. So four, um, that constituted What I call a great confession, America confessed to its long history of racism. Wow and two to its. In other words, it's collusion with an evil. When a society does something like that. And no other society ever has. It is a mark of our greatness, singular greatness. That we did that We make that we confess. Yes, we did. And we will be accountable. Wow. Never had happened before. Well, what? When you confess that the other side of that is, of course, that you take on this burden other people now have this over your head. They can bring it out. They can use that They can point to it. You know you with slaver, you know, so forth segregation, you know, so and so And so it put White Americans In a position where they were at a deficit of moral authority. More authority was wounded. Profoundly by the Great Act they themselves had come and, uh and stood up to the confession aid mate. Andi. That's the circumstance of being weighed in America. Today's having living with that that sort of injury too. To Ah, self to the whole idea of one's power in the world. Um, so white guilt is in. One of the problems with it is that it's always self referential. Right. Say, Well, we'll deal with that. Get well, hell what we did back in the sixties, Lyndon Johnson came out with the war on poverty, The great society school busing. Public housing, extended welfare payments on and on and on to buy back the moral authority that America had lost his confessor. The problem, Wass all of this. All these programs always gestures of healing the past. We're really designed much more to give whites moral authority. When to help blacks develop after four centuries of oppression. And so we are less developed. We're far behind whites today. And we were in 1955. Before any of this happened. So that's my beef with white girl. Is that it has become the new oppression. All black Americans were oppressed by It steals our our moral thunder steals our soul so that we're not responsible for our fate anymore. Quite so. And we have to continue to appeal to them hot and badger them to give us things or we'll never make it. Well, when people begin to think that way all hope is lost. Andi were black America isn't now at this moment. In serious profound Danger of Ah, we've already given into this distract. On and we're That we have to find some way out. Well for me, you know, speaking as a Christian, I always say that when you confess a sin Ah, when you deal with it, you know when 600,000 White boys dying award and slavery and guess what, we end slavery. Wow! Ah, price was paid Slavery was Ended in 1965. We deal with this stuff. We end Jim Crow. We do all that. And so when you confess these things Ah, as you said, it gives people a cudgel to say, Ah ha! You admit it. You were wrong. But speaking as a Christian, I say That's the voice of the devil because you say yes, of course I was wrong. That's the point. I confessed it. You know, as a Christian, you can use whatever lingo you want. I nailed it to the cross. It's over. I was forgiven. And now I celebrate that I have repented and I'm moving in the right direction. But people don't understand that and they buy in voluntarily to the idea that I will never live it down. I will never really be free of it. I can never be forgiven, and that's That's a dark world view. It's Ah as as I say, without apologizing is that's the voice of the devil that says you will never be better. I don't care what good thing you ever do. You are branded. You are wrong. You will always be wrong. You will always hang your head in shame. That is not a voice that allows everyone to move forward into the light. Oh, you're absolutely right. That that is not the voice. But here's the problem. But why in America has lost his moral confidence. So when blacks come forward and try to use that confession against White America A full hold on. This is a This is a key point. We're going to go to a break. This is radio will be right back with Dr Shelby Steele..

"Equity and skin care. Is the tag on that piece, equity and skin care. And the way you achieve equity and skin care is by one hating America and to buying gasoline. Apparently, this is an indication of the mentality that persists in C suites and fortune 1000 companies in America. Okay, now some good news about some good news. And this is a two for e three for really because they're friends, Shelby Steele and Eli steal the great Shelby Steele. And Anne Lie steal who put together this documentary? What killed Michael Brown That was originally going to be streamed on Amazon and then Amazon took it down because it didn't meet Amazons. Robust quality standards. And that generated AH. Number of op. EDS. From Jason Riley in the Wall Street Journal, The Rod Drayer to others. In defense of Shelby Steele, who's I mean? He's former professor at San Jose stays at the Hoover Institution. He's a national book club. A war national book winner. I mean literary won a number of literary prices for white guilt, and it just written a number of great Books columns except I mean this is a deep intellect. As I have said, probably the most important intellect on race and culture in the last half century. Certainly You can count to those To be included with that descriptor on on one hand, and Shelby Steele is among them. Well. They sent a cease and desist when Amazon tried to slough this off and say, Oh, it was an accident by you know, one of our Hate speech engineers, reminders or functionaries. Ah and steals were having none of it. No, no, This was purposeful. The message was unmistakable. And you said it was also unreviewable. So there was clearly malice aforethought, So you're going to apologize to us. Ah and own up to what you did if you want to reverse course amid the public Excoriation of Amazon Prime I guess. One dear, all good news to report. The film is done extremely well since it's lunch last Friday, But that's not the good news for today. Eli Steal the documentarian, the director of the film writing Amazon reached out to me this afternoon and we had a positive exchange females. I prefer emails to the phone due to my deafness. Apparently we had an uninvited third party that interfered on my behalf. Unbeknownst to me that caused confusion, so it was good to communicate with them directly. Listen to their side. They listen to mine. They acknowledge what happened and they said they would work to improve and prevent incidents like this one from happening again, Given today's volatile cultural war. I believe this was a positive stuff. They will have this experience on their minds going forward, and one hopes they will improve their policies so that all American perspectives are included. They certainly did not have have to reach out, but they did and that gestures meaningful. I do want to thank the writers that Wall Street Journal Fox News. National view many other places for writing about this. Without this publicity, we likely would never have reached this resolution. I'm very happy I can finally announce officially that are very well received. Documentary. What killed Michael Brown is now on the Amazon prime platform. The film will continue to play on video as well. So I, you know, video or Amazon Prime. You choose. Go check out what killed Michael Brown, which is an excellent Documentary as you would expect from Ah shall be any lie Steal. You should also check out Eli steals documented, which I mentioned before on the show How Jack became black about his son enrolling in the school district. Also very good. But it just shows you you know, there is some power here when people stand up and make their voices heard, and also when people like steel's say, No, you're not goingto Run that game on me. We're going to hold you to account for the decision you made on the basis of it. Now, if you want to change your decision, that's fine. But you're going on the decision you made and that's what happened. There's a blow. Positive blow. Here's another one. And this comes from a bit of an unlikely place. Given her title. The woman I'm speaking of is the minister of Equities. Excuse me. Minister of Equality is in the U. K. Kimmie. Bad knock is her name. The minister of the qualities again with your well Ian titles in the West, and she spoke to British Parliament. About critical race theory and listen to what she had to say. It's going to surprise you. I told you this is the good news. But we aren't against is the teaching off contested political ideas as if they are accepted. Fact way. Don't do this with communism. We don't do this with socialism. You don't do it with capitalism. And I want to speak about a dangerous trend in race relations that has come party close to home to my life, and its promotion of critical race theory on ideology that sees my blackness is victimhood on their witness as oppression. I want to be absolutely clear This government stands unequivocally against critical race theory. Some schools have decided to openly supports the anti capitalist black lives matter Group. Often fully aware that they have a statutory duty to be politically.

"Is a 60 am answer. Shelby Steele, who is thie mastermind behind what killed Michael Brown, also with the Hoover Institution. One of my favorite organizations. I've watched probably 200 hours of content from Hoover on YouTube learned a lot So, Dr Steele I want Teo Asked about this idea of systemic racism. I get this all the time on college campuses. I think we have become become pretty Pretty equipped in combating this charge that America is systemically racist. Can you help our our listeners and our viewers unpack this lie that America is systemically racist to its core. Yes, It is particularly easy for me to do that because I was raised when segregation was really Um When every single aspect of your life Uh, white people lived on one side of the street. I grew up on blacks lived on the other side and the 20 never met. We never could play in their yards. We never could say hello to them. We it was it was a complete wall. Of way. Wanted to get an Italian sausage sandwich. Uh, the local deli and you had to stand outside the door. So I'll be here on from months talking about all the constrictions, the little the little and large humiliations that you that we had to endure. Um Justin to move forward in life. Yet we did move forward and and I'll come back to that. Um, but that is that was the Um Today, Segregation is impossible says completely vanished. There there is, There's racism will always be there is a part of the human condition is, I say stupidity is a part of the human condition as well. We have to. We will always Have to be on guard against that impulse within us to judge people by their race. Um, but The much larger reality today is that we use blacks are free. For the very first time. Um, and our challenge today is not racism. It's freedom. This is where we've not had a lot of experience. This is where we've not built the culture that no that is prepared to take on the challenges. Of freedom and those very demands of freedom are very rigorous. And so rather than face that challenge We pull back and say no problem. Systemic racism. You thought racism was just a little bit, But it's more larger of the nanite is what is what's holding me back and Stifling my humanity and Um Once again. Um, systemic racism is designed to expand. Entitlement. I say Well, racism is just here and there, I'll isolated incident. No big deal. But if I say it's everywhere Then my entitlement is everywhere. Then must my moral power is that I can't begin to tell institutions how to pay. I can tell corporate America to contribute money to black lives matter. I can. I've got also. I can change the curriculum in my university I can in my corporation insist on Anu. Human resource is department I can on and on. I've got riel power that I can Wheeldon's in society. Because whites don't have the mall authority to resist it. To say two wives cannot say to me. There's no such thing as a systemic racism anymore. They can't. They can't. They can't name the truth. We can't hear the truth. That's where we are. And what I have found in some of these conversations, and I'd love to have you help us unpack. This is sometimes when I'm interfacing with a leftist or a member of the activist media. We're talking about two different things. So racism The way I was raised is one person of a particular skin color, having a prejudice or hatred or bias towards another person of another skin, color or culture. It could be a white person against a black person or a black person against a white person or a black person against the Latino. So on and so forth. The term racism is not that's not that's not their definition of racism. Their definition of racism is a power struggle is that black people are unable to be racist towards white people. And even deeper than that such number one I'd like to have you unpack and number two. We've seen this happen. You deserve a lot of credit for this in recent years, more so than any other time in my lifetime. Is the challenging of people are not black. If they're not on the left. You see this with Candace Owens, Brandon Tatum yourself. Thomas Soul, the leading kind of black voices are no longer considered to be to be adequately black because they do not hold a certain ideological view. Can you help unpack those two things about how we just have a disagreement on basic terms with some of the people that have been pushing them, especially when it comes to this idea of what is racism and is someone black if they are not on the left. Right. What? What? What is behind this? Is that is the fact again coming out of the sixties. That our history of victimization in America His blast. Became our greatest source of power. In treating As a black I can I can go around and I have a moral authority in American life. Teo come up with with wild ideas like systemic racism. I can demand this Aiken demand just because I and I come from a race that's been victimized by America in the past. So America's indebted to me. They owe me. That's power. At least I think that what what Hap tragically happened to blacks is that we thought the moral authority we gain. When America confessed to its racist past. We thought that moral authority was our greatest weapon. In society. We could use it and we have I used it a great deal, so are weak without realizing it. We developed a faith. Almost a religious faith. In the idea believe there were victims of white racism. Which is it just becomes a part of the identity. We developed what I call a victim focused identity. You want to make many blacks angry. Tell them that they're not a victim. That that's just beyond the pale and so it Sze more than more than ideology. It is that it is really this. They're protecting today. This this this idea of victimization. Assed power because we don't have faith that we have another source of power. On this is this is the tragedy. We don't invent computers. So if we don't do other sorts of things that traditionally bring bring power we were victims. And boy, there's a lot of power in that when a society has admitted. Yeah, we did victimize Do you think part of the problem is that there has been This continuation of the overemphasis or the over generalization of a certain group of people being the oppressors versus the oppressed. For example, I was born in 1993. Almost three decades after the civil rights movement. I am completely personally disconnected from any form of the really and legitimate segregation and racism that you lived through. However, I'm still being blamed for inter generationally. Despite myself having no involvement in it. Do you think that is part of the problem that We're not viewing people as individuals instead, almost in tribal groups says it's not as if that you have the individual agency to apply yourself. But you are on ly in the box of which you look most similar to Those people. I think the real problem behind this is that White Americans have lost their moral conscience. They don't know whether they made they all doubt There's a doubt my my racist, am I not There's an ambivalence. A za black. Well, there's my chance. There's my opportunity to exploit. They can't make up their mind. They're confused their their their lives. They don't have the confidence to enforce. On Mia's a black, the same values and principles, then force unto themselves. They can't ask me to sacrifice in order to get ahead. They can. They have to give me something that you notice all social programs in the 19 sixties own every single one of them. Basically says we're going to give you something. We're never going to ask anything. That attitude basically destroyed Black America. Wei have recovered yet way. So if the government asked us of some as something of us, we just build a whole school system here in the city. We'd like you get so forth and so on. Well,.

"On this for pleased to be joined by the force, said Shelby Steele, the Robert J. And Marion E. Coaster senior fellow at the Hoover Institution and again, the author of Many books, including starting with for me, white guilt, but dream defer the content of our character. Most recently shame all our must read Shelby Steele. Thanks so much for joining us again. Appreciate it. Thanks for having me. So the title of the documentary is so interesting. What killed Michael Brown? Not who we know. The name of the officer who killed Michael Brown. But this documentary explores. You know what brought us to that moment that confrontation between Michael Brown and that officer? Why is that so important? Well, I think that Michael Brown was there were forces in play in in American life That didn't result in Michael Brown's death on in the quality of life he had and that he in a sense Was a character, a single person who was the product of a kind of liberalism that was born out of the 19 sixties sort of a protest era and many of the public housing school busing affirmative action. One program after another, coming out of the sixties, directed the world he actually lived in that world was Not helpful for him. You had all the usual problems. The broken family, the bad school system with terrible neighborhoods and so forth, many of which Were the result of built out of a commitment to this sort of this liberalism that pervaded the sixties came out of the sixties. So in that sense, he's a window into that period of history from the sixties up to the present, Do the fax matter what actually happened the night that he was killed? Do they matter at this point, Does it matter if he had his hands up and said, Don't shoot, or he didn't have his hands up and didn't say Don't shoot and was the aggressor. In the confrontation with the officer. Does that does that even matter at this juncture, well, only in the sense that it exemplifies what we call poetic truth there is in situations like this is the literal truth. What happened? Who shot Who and so forth? Then there is what we call a poetic truth. And the poetic truth is the narrative that that grows up out of events like this. Through which people pursue power. Blacks pursue power in situations like Michael Brown's killing because it's a vivid sort of metaphor of black victimization at the hands of white Racists. Michael Brown is in the poetic truth is a victim of America's long history of racism, and therefore he, in a sense justifies Liberal politics. He justifies entitlement. He is a source of power on the American left his tragic death. It had been a black finger that pulled the trigger that killed Michael Brown. We would never have heard of it. Think time. This is the the You know what we have hundreds thousands of black kids killed every weekend in American cities. Never here. Think about it. But Michael Brown you do. I wonder how you see this being received. Then when it's pointed out what Michael Brown did what the evidence suggests. He did that night, or it's pointed out who Jacob Blake Wass or is I should say he wasn't killed is and what he had done why he was there when the police officers came and how he behaved with the police officers or it's pointed out. In other instances, it pointed out what George Floyd did even what his life was like. Is that at all helpful is that does that truth undermine the effort to undermine the culture of black victimization? Or is it important that we provide that contextual information and say you? We have to look at the Ted totality of the circumstances and these individuals in those circumstances? My point is that when you have this poetic truth system, saying blacks, his victims you always miss. The real problems. Real problems Black America today, The most profound problem is the breakdown the family when 80% of black Children born without a father. Well, what what kind of social programs are going ever make up for that? And so rather than talk about that extremely difficult problem and challenging problems, we have an argument over. You know Michael Brown and on what does it do in the black community in terms of the perception? Black Americans have of America when Michael Brown or Jacob Lake or George Floyd are turned into heroes or martyrs, or both, right? It's sad because again, Black America tries to build a political identity out ofthe black victimization. And if you say you're not a victim, then they say, Well, you're not black. The problem is that we take reality itself. And fashion it into a program that again we feel we feel the only power in America is the fact that we were victimized by America. That's the sword we have over the head of our country. So we relish situations like Trayvon, Martin, Michael Brown and so forth because they sort of seemed to verify that victimized victim focused identity that that blacks and I live in But that identity is killing us. When we come back with Shelby Steele will continue our discussion about his film. What killed Michael Brown? And I.

instances of dishonesty and brutality because they are news what that really means is that they are exceptional they are unusual they are not commonplace buried under the fourth is the fact and the fact is that less than one half of one percent of policemen misfit that uniform and that is a better average than you'd find among clergy ma'am what is a policeman he all managed at once the most needed and the most wanted a strangely nameless creature who is Sir to his face and Pagar worst behind his back he must be such a diplomatic and subtle differences between individual so that each will

"It. Can't do that. I'm free. Okay. But now that I'm free. I am in charge of my life. That is the one thing. My culture never had to do. We live in freedom make decisions on my own be responsible for the decisions that I make live with the consequences of my own of my own decisions and actions, and so free is a terrorizing thing for people who've who've never scary for all of us. But if you come from a culture, that's not used to dealing with it that doesn't organize its culture in a way to deal with it. Then it's especially difficult to spend. And I think that. Excuse me, since the sixties black America has been struggling to begin to learn how to deal with freedom. So what we usually do when because we're so it's so intimidating. We usually say to ourselves. Well, the truth is that we're not free racism is still around every corner. And that's what's holding me back, and that's what's making my life difficult. And and is that racism continues in American life, and I protect myself from feeling inadequate not up to the challenges of freedom. Well, you know, my my larger point always is that at this is at this moment in history. Freedom is challenge, not racism. We keep trying to make it racism. So we can avoid terrorism of freedom. But that's what that's what we wanted. That's what we that's what makes you a full union being is free. And so if there's a little bit of racism still left in American life. So what it's time now to accept the challenges in. Prepare self of freedom. You said something fascinating. I read it in either. One of your books are in an article that you voted against having a course in ethnic culture Santa's centers as state when you're there. What kind of blowback did you receive as a result? And how do they packed your overall thinking? Well, it helped me understand. This is back. Good Tommy back in the eighties now, and I suspected for a long time. But the the idea was that I would go along with this ethnic studies class because I was black, and as I what's the difference between that and what the segregation issues to do you can't you can't can't do this because you're black. And so I was again reduced by this case people who considered themselves liberal. I was reduced by liberals to my race. There was no idea that that I might for example, disagree with the the ethnic studies, which I did. I thought it was not not going to be a very good class was highly politicized. It wasn't really a serious literature class. Well, that kind of thing opens your eyes, and you see that certain patterns of taking over in society and in our institutions where what's more important about Shelby? Steele is not who is not what he makes himself, but his color. Well, I thought we won our our freedom from that kind of thinking. But we have not. And and one of the main reasons we've not as what I've also written a lot about white guilt. And the people who were wanted me to go along with this and support an ethics studies program. I didn't believe in those people wanted affects studies because it would prove their innocence of racism. They didn't give a you know, what about what the class would actually do whether it'd be worthwhile from a literary point of view. They didn't care. They wanted a class devoted to ethnic studies. So that they could then points to it and say they were on the side of the good. They were innocent of all those all of the old evil evils in America was so so guilty of and that's the sort of syndrome that we've been pointed we've been trapped into so now I was victimized too as a kid by white racism, then I'd be victimized by white guilt and wipes yoga's far more dangerous and repress. I say I would rather deal with a segregationist. Then then with white guilt. You know speaking, you're white guilt. And I I look of yours that I read which. White guilds amazing book. I would encourage all of our listeners to get a copy it really opened my eyes. I think it was when you were co- college in Cedar Rapids, Iowa and think it was there you described storming into the president's office with other student activists and you made a series of demands and looking back on that incident. What would you say to young Shelby Steele today to help him? See why is actions were probably counterproductive. I have a lot to say. It was again, this is the very in the late sixties. And we summarize Bill passed, and we moved from sort of Martin Luther King peace oriented, civil rights movement to a much more. Militant aggressive highly politicized, black militancy, and this SARS I'm concerned as one of the worst moments in black American history because we fell in thrall to the idea that our blackness and the militancy that we brought to it was going to transform and be be be the way ahead would lift us up. So we put faith literally in our race rather than in ourselves as people so that Shelby Steele back. There was actually thinking in. Some weird contorted way that race would be as where it had been the blacker than thou. Black and proud. Well, we don't know if you've born blind. You're gonna live and die black is what do you mean? What have you accomplished? What have you made of your of your life? What what are you going to do to get ahead in life? Are you going to have a family enrich children and and become a a a full citizen? Fi just being black. Well, we got lost in that for fifty years now, and that idea still is is prevalent on American campuses. And it breaks my heart. It's it's it's it's total utility. We are farther behind whites today than we were in the nineteen fifties by almost every single socioeconomic measure. That's what blackness will do for you. It. It is the most stifling stunting sort of idea of yourself that you can have your nothing more than your race that being black is all powerful and all meaningful. Yeah. Is being white all powerful and all many. I don't think. So I think we we live in a free society the focus is on the individual. Who were you what have you done with your life? What have you made of yourself? And and if if many people do that people who happen to be black you look up one day and the whole group would be fast. But if if until the focus is on individual achievement and development, we're we're not gonna get anywhere. The group I think Walter Williams made a great statement when he said what exactly is effort century culture gun for blacks? And I thought that was just so such a great and simple way. But it, and it's not that far removed from what you're saying. You know, let's let's take a look at the radical left since they steal all the headlines today. And we're we just came out of the the the bar hearings, which were embarrassing circus. And I think it's kind of related to the all the black issues to do you think the radical left is so consumed by hate the kinda hate we saw in the cabin. Hearings and the bar earrings. And why do you think if you do that it's actually this hatred that they harbor is actually their worst enemy? Well, I've been thinking a lot about that. I guess many people have when you see hatred like that usually it's it's usually if not always driven by some subconscious reality that the people are not aware of and I think on the left today. One of the things that monitored the liberalism that we have in American life and have since the sixties, you know, has been sort of grounded in the idea that hatred is underlying hatred, very often. Like that is the sense of impotence, and one of the things I think that that the left in America faces today is the fact that they no longer have a menace a large evil to fight. That's what many left the liberalism in the since the sixties so powerful is that they were they were going to save us from from racist. They were going gonna save us from militarism from from America's propensity for evil and bigotry, and they're gonna save us from all those things. What they neglected to realize was those things fainted. They're not altogether gone. But they're not enough. They're not powerful enough anymore to warrant the politics that in the political power that liberalism asks for. They're they're diminished. Well, it's like you're in a in Iraq fight. But then you look over there. And you don't have any rocks in your pilot anymore, liberalism is is in a sense. Then what is it? What are they saying? What are they fighting for? They can't tell you. And all they can do is tell you who they hate. So hatred is is sort of a last refuge of of politics that is exhausted. And and no longer has any anything any anything really alive in it at all, do you think this could possibly be at the heart of why climate change seems to be replacing racist? That's the enemy number run. You're right on the money. You rather the money climate? I'm gonna take the place of racism. They have to have sneering minutes, and Jerry, you're now really is really declined to significantly racism is is not holding anybody back anymore. So what does liberalism? They have no justification. So they they scratched the ground and come up with climate change. Which which the now okay now, we've got evil again climate change. Of course, the their whole main point is not the cause the planet, always changes. But their main point is that Uman beings are ruining the earth sustain old evil that was behind racism is not behind climate change. And that's why we liberals have too. That's why we exist. And that's what we have to fight for. That's why you should give us power because we're innocent of that either you mentioned reparations earlier, and I don't want on it. But I have two questions for you on this first of all, and I'm still looking for the answer who has the initiatives to sort out who is entitled to reparations and how much each in title person should receive. And Secondly, if the Democrats were ever able to pass legislation for reparations, what do use Shelby Steele think the real life consequences would be.

"We have with today. Shelby Steele who is a conservative author columnist documentary filmmaker Dr Steele is recipient of the national humanities medal. And a Robert J and Marian ES or senior fellow at Stanford university's Hoover Institution. He's also the author of many books, including the content of our character, white guilt and his most recent work. Shame how America's passan's have polarized our country. In addition, Dr Steele has written extensively for many major publications, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Harper's and has appeared on Nightline, sixty minutes and many Fox News programs. Dr Steele, thanks for joining us today. Thank you for having me one of your articles. You said that the real trouble between the races in America is at the racist or not just racist. But competing power groups, which you explain what you meant by that. Well, yes, given America's history the beginning. Obviously with the with slavery and blacks being brought in from largely from Africa and set up in America as in this this this low this burgeoning society, primarily settled by Europeans white Europeans. And then there's this infusion black slaves, these we're sort of still bound in that sort of binary relationship, white black and and and in. Throughout history. The when the two groups of in the sense involved as power groups in relation to each other blacks had another problem with blacks had very little any power at all during three and a half centuries and slavery whites had enormous power in relation to blacks until slavery ended then they sort of gained power again in the Jim crow era, and since the sixties we've been sort of renegotiating that relationship where do do blacks have the kind of power in relation to whites in American life that they should have if given that we are free society focused on individuals rather than on groups show, you see it more as not so much racial groups as power rooks. That's in terms of we we are racist though. Oh, that's breaking down actually. But the differential empower between white people and black people throughout American history was really problematic created a schism division in our society that we're still very much struggling with. And we've we've come into a new phase of that relationship. But it's still based on. It's it's still based on power and lacks have gained enormous power since the sixties since the civil rights victories of the nineteen sixties. We we won a are in a sense. We finally won our freedom then. And again, we we. At least the radically. We have now power a level of power in American life. That is commensurate with whites though, it's very tenuous. We're we're we're back all sorts of issues remain. Most recently people are talking about reparations again, all sorts of. We're still negotiating that power where that relationship between the two of my my my now, finally equal or or not are are white white still locked into a racist position that gives them an advantage or not. And you know, it depends on who you talk to what what answer you get there. Much of our politics comes out of that that abrasive. In fact, I think really the the American democracy is in many ways defined by its relationship. To this human problem of race. That's what distinguishes us from almost any other country in the world. In that same article, Dr Steele, you pointed out that whenever people make racing important. Issue powers, the primary motive, and it's kind of along the same lines. Can you give us a specific example this and also explain how things like innocence superiority and entitlement all of which written about how they factor into it? Again. We we have this this. It's it's. I wrote a piece recently about this. It begins. I think in in in came to to our attention nationally in the sixties when America for the very first time after blacks, Ben here. Some the very beginning of America, the colonial era finally in the nineteen sixties white America through the government from the president president Johnson on down acknowledged that the United States of America, the freest country in the world the world of the country that have failed articulated freedom through its constitution more eloquently and precisely than any other civilization in the world that America also practice probably the most pernicious, prolong instance

"Polls showed race relations had reached their lowest point in nearly a quarter of a century. Huge achievement. Almost everyone would argue. I think to elect a black man president of the United States and eight years later somehow Jason contends race relations are worse. Not better. What happened? Well, President Obama is a politician, first and foremost, and he's a liberal politician who ascribes to identity politics, like many others in his party do tact. In fact, is probably been worse today than it was when when he was in office, this adherence to identity politics, and that is appealing to various voting blocks telling them to vote for for for politicians who look like them who share the racial or ethnic background that that is a priority. When it comes to who you should choose to represent you politically appealing to blacks as blacks women as women gay people as gay people now. Not appealing to them as Americans with a common interest that is identity politics. And that is something that President Obama practiced, and it is a very divisive strategy. It helps you get out your base. It may help you scare people to the polls rile up voters that you need to support you. But at the end of the day, you end up with a very polarized electric. And that is what President Obama practice for eight years using his Justice department to investigate police shootings all over the country, sending his attorney general Eric Holder out to accuse Republicans of suppressing black voters trying to disenfranchise them pushing for affirmative action programs, racial preferences, and so forth. These are very racially divisive. Things to do when you're president to use your platform as president to advance the sorts of things and the result.

"Again, make sure you use promo code Larry back to the discussion between William F, Buckley and Thomas, oh about the damage. Progressive policies have inflicted on black people, including specifically the policy known as -firmative action during the past ten years. We've had affirmative action. We have also had. What we've also had a rise of between twenty one to thirty seven percent of families black families that have a civil Peres. Yes, there's been a desertion by the mail mother father. Now is that a part of the welfare program or is that entirely coincidental? And to what extent is that? Is that the social because the fact the? Describing well if I if I limit my description of Justice families that are female headed, and I compare it blacks and whites then then within that comparison is the blocks for fall of falling further and further behind you get if I pick almost any measure of more advantaged families. I find the blocks only catching up, but in some cases, overtaking passing the whites and the number of ways, you can look at it, and you get the same result. And what that suggests to me is that those blocks who have the skills experience the education, and so on are finding things much much easier than ever before whereas those whether the risk involved in hiring them, the people aren't going to take that risk. I've I've seen her explained to me very explicitly in the case of women. And I suspect that they want to be the draw the same conclusion with respect to blogs, universities have said people universities have said to me, we will not hire a woman who for assistant professor unless we're sure she's gonna make associate professor the cost the cost of legal processes in case, she doesn't it so high. I remember telling you this. A woman who was a full professor. I see what response black woman and her response was. Yes, that's the way I hire. Because I also have no time to waste of the ESPN in the courtroom. So therefore, they don't get the same running. If you're gonna hire someone lady ochre, the employers would be are safer hiring mediocre whites. Who can be thrown out if they don't work out without any repercussions. If you're just now joining us, we're talking about an article written by Walter Williams. That was not Walter Williams was Tom sold by Walter Williams in which he quote, Malcolm X, who says our problems will not be solved by white white liberals. In fact, he calls white liberals enemies of black people more on Walter Williams and just a second. But he's back to Thomas. So this is one thousand nine hundred eighty four and he was speaking with the host named Tony Brown who had a show longtime on PBS you make another point in terms of infra black relations than that. As you say affirmative action for the most part has really benefited blacks who really didn't need affirmative action. Oh, affirmative action is a great way for black PHD's to get in. Cheers is a terrible way for some kid in the South Bronx to get his first job. What affirmative action does is created incentive for people to hire? Those who have a proven track record those. We have the grease and things like that. It makes it more dangerous for the employer to hire unter on train the person with no track record because if he has to fire that person than he's letting himself for legal trouble or you can hire a white. Very doubtful qualification have you doesn't work out. Threw him out in the street. The next week you hire watch qualifications throw them out in the street the next week, and you've got the N double ACP. You've got the EEOC you've got who all to contend with the employers have long ago figure this one out. And so they have not hired those lives who are at all doubtful either in terms of qualifications or simply not enough experience. And know how good they are. You see this on the data blacks who have and who have experience have been moving up on wife, and in some cases, overtaking whites. If you look at blacks who have not gonna high school of blacks will come from background, the families that are broken and so forth. They're falling further and further behind. I don't even further behind. The population in general, but further behind whites of this with the same disadvantages. What are you blamed for that? You're not blaming middle class blacks who are beneficiaries of -firmative action. I'm blaming the incentives created by affirmative action because when it comes to the incentives to the created the businessman is going to try to protect himself. What a week is. And that means hiring those blocks were overqualified, whoever will have a long track record, and so on, and that's what all the data show that the more presentable couples where the husband and wife are both college educated now make more money than white couples with a husband and wife above educated. But the block. Female-headed family has lost real income in absolute terms and terms over the past several years and has fallen further behind white female headed families. So the very opposite trends are going on at the same time. And you can't August because of black racism because both of them are black people. One group is shooting ahead. One is falling further and further behind and a large reason, I believe the data seem to suggest is because the incentives created by affirmative action similar kinds of programs. Just make it too dangerous to take a chance another prominent black conservative, and a friend of Thomas soul. There's a man named Shelby Steele Shelby Steele with responding to a critic actually Lacey Roger Wilkins who says that Shelby. Steele is wrong about blacks not needing government programs. Shelby Steele is wrong. Because of the continued impact a past and present racism says the NWCG's Roger Wilkins here. Here is Shelby Steele responding to that criticism. The idea that we are still primarily victims of racism is a religion among certain segments of the black community, particularly physically the the black leadership which which. Has all of its power and all of its wealth. Particularly as wealth invested in the idea that we are victims of racism, so here comes somebody like Shelby Steele name, many others. Who says that this is not a number one problem? It's maybe fifteen th on the list of problems, I'm taking food out of their mouth food off their table. I'm I'm saying to whites that you're stupid, you're crazy for giving these jokers money. And I mean, it you're not getting anything from it. And one of the one of the reasons that it's so corrupt corporations give money to the end of Lacey pe-, civil rights leadership. They never even evaluate Nettie serious. What these organizations do why haven't they really made an inroad against poverty. They don't do anything. But sit there and take the money. So so somebody like me sort of puts a shines a light on the whole sham and so it's not it's not surprising that the Roger Wilkins of the world would would if I if. People followed my line of thinking he'd be out of work. You have.
