LIFE UNFAIR FOR BLACK AMERICANS?
In Whatâ€™s Race Got to Do with It?, bestselling author Larry
Elder takes on the touchiest topic in American life: Race.Â
Some Americans think race is the biggest issue this country
faces today.Â Elder says: What?!? What about the economy,
what about war, what about the security of our borders and
IS A HUGE GROUP OF CITIZENS BEING KEPT DOWN BY â€śTHE MANâ€ť?
Elder calls for an end to bitching, moaning and whining and
the belief that somebody owes you a job, that self-esteem is
given out for passing â€śgoâ€ť, that a black person in a
position of authority is always a good thing, whether or not
they have credentials and experience.Â He skewers the
loudmouthsâ€”and the â€śmainscreamâ€ť mediaâ€”who point to racism as
the root of all problems.Â Elder explains why Hillary
Clinton doesnâ€™t get it, but Barack Obama doesâ€”at least most
of the time.
But Whatâ€™s Race Got to Do with It? has a positive message,
too: there are leaders and role models today who want to
urge everyone to share in the hard work, smart thinking and
optimism that make America great and strong.
