IS LIFE UNFAIR FOR BLACK AMERICANS?
In What's Race Got to Do with It?, bestselling author Larry Elder takes on the touchiest topic in American life: Race. Some Americans think race is the biggest issue this country faces today. Elder says: What?!? What about the economy, what about war, what about the security of our borders and our citizens?
IS A HUGE GROUP OF CITIZENS BEING KEPT DOWN BY "THE MAN"?
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 "go", that a black person in a position of authority is always a good thing, whether or not they have credentials and experience. He skewers the loudmouths--and the "mainscream" media--who point to racism as the root of all problems. Elder explains why Hillary Clinton doesn't get it, but Barack Obama does--at least most of the time.
But What'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.
