Is life unfair for black Americans? Is racial equality the answer to every question of public policy? Are a huge group of citizens being kept down by "the man"? Radio host Elder has made a career out of being a thorn-in-the-side of conventional wisdom. Here, he takes on the mind-set of those who rail against racism as the root of all problems, and who end up hurting precisely those they claim to be helping. Whether demagogues like Al Sharpton, established politicians like Hillary Clinton, or entertainers like Danny Glover, no one escapes Elder's cogent arguments and rapier wit. But Elder has a positive message, too: though they are fewer--and generally not as loud--there are leaders and role models today who want to sweep away race-based whining and urge everyone in America to share in the hard work, smart thinking and optimism that make this country great.--From publisher description.
