Conservative Shelby Steele on Bill Moyers Journal


With the wildly vacillating predictions about the viability of the Obama candidacy in the news, Shelby Steele's most recent book is getting a lot of attention. In A BOUND MAN: WHY WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT OBAMA AND WHY HE CAN'T WIN, Steele assesses the potential impact of Obama's campaign in terms of white and black America's presumptions about race and politics.

OBM: While I do not have much problem with Steele's description of bargainers but, challengers can only challenge things that are historically true or currently factual.
