Barack Obama and the Politics of Race
AIRED:
Shelby Steele discusses Barack Obama and the Politics of Race.Shelby Steele is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution whose research examines the role of race in American society and the consequences of contemporary social programs on race relations. Steele has written extensively for major publications including the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. He is also the author of several books including, most recently, A Bound Man: Why We Are Excited About Obama and Why He Can't Win.In conversation with Peter Robinson, Shelby Steele explores Barack Obama's candidacy - and his character-in light of the two strategies that African Americans have traditionally used for dealing with life in the white American mainstream: bargaining and challenging. In so doing, Steele not only reveals the paradox and weakness at the heart of Obama's campaign but also delves into challenges America faces as it seeks to go beyond the exhausted racial politics that now prevail - Hoover Institutionmoreless
