    Description

    “On questions of race in America—white guilt, black opportunism—Shelby Steele is our twenty-first-century Socrates: the powerful, lucid, and elegant voice of a refreshingly independent thinker who desires only to see us liberated from sophistry and self-destructive illusions.“—Charles Johnson, author of Middle Passage In this provocative and thoughtful book, the distinguished scholar George Will hails as “America’s clearest thinker about America’s most difficult problem” argues that the age of white supremacy has given way to an age of white guilt—and neither has been good for African Americans. Through his articulate analysis and engrossing recollections of the last half-century of American race relations, Shelby Steele calls for an end to diversity and affirmative action programs and the development of a new culture of personal responsibility, a commitment to principles that can fill the moral void created by white guilt.
