Dr. Shelby Steele: The Combination of White Guilt and Victim Mentality is Not The Solution….

Well-regarded author Dr. Shelby Steele appears for an interview with Martha MacCallum to discuss race relations in the U.S. and how the politics of white guilt does nothing to improve black lives.   Dr. Steele challenges the victim narrative and discusses how policies focused on victimization do not empower the strength of any community.

.

Candidate Joe Biden defined the blackness of black people by saying if they did not support him “you ain’t black.”  Obviously the strategy to campaign on this issue was made in the days prior to the South Carolina primary.  What we see now is a continuation of that plan.  However, the pandering is over-the-top; and there are indications of a backlash from within the black community.

It does not matter what your race, ethnicity or skin color is, no-one likes being talked down to. The nature of the leftist political effort by the DNC’s white coastal elites is based on expressed superiority in alignment with the ‘you ain’t black enough’ outlook from presidential candidate Joe Biden.

This approach will predictably backfire, bigly, in part because campaign director James Clyburn himself is detached from current political sentiment by his age and class-structure.  It’s 2020 knuckleheads.

The democrats are poll-testing their approach, but the audience responding to the polls are just more leftist elites. The Democrats are defining an Alinsky strategy through their own biased prism of race.  Then they ask opinion of that strategy to a closed and cloistered echo-chamber. It is a circle of racist stupidity.

Outside the DNC ideological bubble, where real people live, work, interact and enjoy each-others fellowship, what the Democrats are trying to do is so fraught with cringe that ordinary people are embarrassed to associate with the effort. This is a big part of the reason why their heavily coordinated and scripted effort is not gaining traction.

Black people do not want the police to be defunded, by leftist activists and trust-fund protestors who don’t even live in the neighborhoods where police are needed, any more than any other person does.  Common sense exists within every race.

Racism at it’s basic U.S. form is defined by economics; limo-liberals have the greatest likelihood of actually being racist. Blue-collar middle-class America doesn’t sit around wasting time thinking about race and class struggles. Each individual tries to live their best life and do the best they can for their family.

The audiences who most despise this nonsense political effort, are patriotic black people and immigrants of all races who love the country and don’t sit around debating their level of victim-hood. If Democrats really want to face-plant the 2020 election, keep doing this:

    POTUS will have at least 40% of black voters, and an equal amount of other non-white ones, when November rolls around. Thankfully, Americans can still think for themselves to a large degree, and they are down with MAGA / KAG.

      Dan bonging said something to the effect that everything about these ideological is fine and dandy until they affect your lives. Like some guy was cheering on the rioters until they showed up at his house. These rioters destroyed black peoples business and the business that they patronize making life more difficult for them. How is that helping black America? Also when black business owners saw their own businesses destroyed they couldn’t believe it was happening to them. These people might not just vote for those who are making their lives more difficult and maybe President Trump can pull more votes from freedom loving black Americans.

          Same for me. Fortunately I was living far outside the city when the Freddie Gray incident occurred.

          Dr. Steele took awhile to get to the main point but he did so very well. He very much softened his message but it was unmistakable that he disapproves of the riots, the white guilt-driven knee jerk reactions by whites in politics, and probably the media.

          I’m not black but I can imagine his pain in seeing a great opportunity to build up social constructs that would benefit blacks and everyone but that are being forfeited in favor of a lust for power using guilt and grievance-based emotions as political currency.

Leave the information blank when asked on an application for a loan, college application, medical history or any questioner when asked what ethnicity group you fall under.

    As usual, Sundance leads the way in distilling the essence of the Alinsky/ DemonRat strategy that is behind the riots and seditious activities that are being used to try and destroy our President Trump and our Republic.
    In furtherance of these goals, the Dems are working even harder on cheating us out of the election. Tom Fitton testified recently about the work that Judicial Watch is doing to force the worst cities like LA to clean up their voter rolls but nobody noticed.
    NY City is a shambles and there is little sign that it is reopening even though Massa Cuomo gave them permission to come out of their apartments and maybe get some sunshine.

        Hattie McDaniel (June 10, 1893 – October 26, 1952) was an American actress, singer-songwriter, and comedian. She is best known for her role as “Mammy” in Gone with the Wind (1939), for which she won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, becoming the first African American to win an Oscar.

        In addition to acting in many films, McDaniel recorded 16 blues sides between 1926–1929 (10 were issued), was a radio performer and television star; she was the first black woman to sing on radio in the United States.[3][4] She appeared in over 300 films, although she received screen credits for only 83.[5]

        McDaniel has two stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood: one at 6933 Hollywood Boulevard for her contributions to radio and one at 1719 Vine Street for acting in motion pictures. In 1975, she was inducted into the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame and in 2006 became the first black Oscar winner honored with a US postage stamp.[6] In 2010, she was inducted into the Colorado Women’s Hall of Fame.[7]

      The anarchist playbook, the communist takeover playbook, is to take your guns, take your religion, and take your history. Then they TELL you what you can think and believe in. They have been doing that in our school systems and college/uni for decades! The SJW that lecture us on social media non-stop on the religious cults of animal “rights” (but they still protect slaughtering human beings in the womb), whatever sexuality they profess, climate change — blah, blah, blah. All meant to replace traditional religious worship with the god worship of their own making (and, or course, “mother earth”). I use the term cult because it is a mind control like that with the rhetoric and refusal to discuss rationally. I think we’ve all seen the hysteria and histrionics, the hyper-emotionalism. There is a supernatural element at work. The rage and violence are part of it. Ephesians 6, prayer warriors. Armor up!

Because they were afraid of being called the ultimate evil-doer designation (“RACIST”), they, many of them “feminists”, allowed the rape of probably 2000 or more young girls who are now scarred for life (a handful were actually killed). They have yet to offer any apology. Of course, a BBC drama about this outrage AGAIN really did not mention the obvious motive or background of the evil Pakistani beasts.

  14. The NYT Magazine via No Parasan,,on Baltimore who “defunded” and shackled their PD under the Obama/Holder/Sharpton Cop-Killer consent decree:

    “in the years that followed, Baltimore, by most standards, became a worse place. In 2017, it recorded 342 murders — its highest per-capita rate ever, more than double Chicago’s, far higher than any other city of 500,000 or more residents and, astonishingly, a larger absolute number of killings than in New York, a city 14 times as populous. Other elected officials, from the governor to the mayor to the state’s attorney, struggled to respond to the rise in disorder, leaving residents with the unsettling feeling that there was no one in charge. With every passing year, it was getting harder to see what gains, exactly, were delivered by the uprising. (…)
    On the left, in contrast, Baltimore’s recent woes have been largely overlooked, partly because they present a challenge to those who start from the assumption that policing is inherently suspect. The national progressive story of Baltimore during this era of criminal-justice reform has been the story of the police excesses that led to Gray’s death and the uprising, not the surge of violence that has overtaken the city ever since. As a result, Baltimore has been left mostly on its own to contend with what has been happening, which has amounted to nothing less than a failure of order and governance the likes of which few American cities have seen in years.”

    A comment: “I have a good friend who grew up in Baltimore and when she married she wanted to do so in the cathedral where she had grown up. My wife and I attended. The wedding occurred after the rioting. Although I played the manly man for the benefit of my wife, I was quite nervous driving to the church. At the reception, everyone agreed that it was quite scary (including quite a few African-American guests (military). The bride was heartbroken, as she had expected the neighborhood to be the same as she remembered. It was not. Roaming youths, burned out cars, trash strewn everywhere. It looked like Mogadishu to me (and I was there). This is what Minneapolis and other towns and cities have to look forward to if this crazy idea of defunding the po-po goes through. Businesses will close shop and crime will go up and the few decent folks remaining will have to hunker down and mount expeditions to obtain food and other necessities.”

      When the “doctors” have been telling you from birth that they and they alone have the cure what do you do? After all the successes and progress this is what Shelby Steele, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, Candace, Brandon, the Harris brothers, Diamond and Silk, Terence Williams and many others are back to fighting.

      This is what the demonrat party have delivered to black Americans over the last 60 years. This is the birth of blm:
      Imagine for a moment that for your entire life you have been taught five things:

      1. Everything and everyone is unfair to you because of the color of your skin – it matters not what you do. Any rebuke of your bad behavior comes only because of your skin color. Your skin color puts you at the disadvantage you have to work extra hard for any small bit of morsel you can get

      2. Police are bad and they hate you because of the color of your skin. Anytime and EVERYTIME a police officer stops you it is because of the color of your skin and not because you ran a red light, committed a hit and run, or were speeding.

      3. No matter how awful the crime you saw. Do not tell the police (Snitches get stiches). Remember, the police hate you because of the color of your skin

      4. The republican party hates you because of the color of your skin. All republicans are KKK members. The demonrats love you and have a wonderful plan for your life.

      5. If you think you can go to school, or college or any of that. You will not succeed because of the color of your skin AND if you do succeed you are now “acting white”. Those uppity blacks are “uncle toms”.. They know nothing about racism. They sold out – regardless of the fact they actually lived racism.

      Every single day almost from the moment you were born those five things have been instilled in your head, Your hear it from your “bishop”, grandma, grandpa, your mother, as she smacks you and tells you to shut up and sit down. Your father when he comes around and as he smacks you and tells you to sit down and shut up. You hear it from your aunts and uncles, your godmother, your godfather, even the nosey old lady next door and the guy selling drugs at the corner. Its one refrain. You are not responsible for anything you do because life is rigged against you and its all because of your skin color. The only thing you can do to “fix” the horrible circumstance of your life is vote for a demonrat. That is it. Vote demonrat and it will all be fixed.

      Now couple that with extremely poor education and you see the problem. They are not taught history and they are certainly not told the truth. We have people who have been literally robbed of hope, life, joy, self respect and INCENTIVE by the evil that is the demonrat party and the black elites they have selected to keep the sheep in line.

      It takes a lot to break the sick, dark, evil cycle and thankfully the cycle is breaking.. Many blacks still think people like sheila jackson lee, jim clyburn, maxine waters and jesse sharpton care about them. They believe these people don battle gear and bravely go to Washington every day to fight mean, bad republicans for every bit of morsel they can get to bring back to them. Afterall the 1619 project says so. The people on television says so.

      This is the reason for the increased shouts of racism and the claims of white supremacy and white privilege from the demonrats and their media cabal. They are realizing their stranglehold is weakening because the sane voices are getting through. Look at the list of blacks who are speaking out. Lots of eyes are getting opened. The demonrats have revealed their hand and its not pretty. Their horrific, condescending display yesterday underscored it more than anything else they have said and done the last 60+ years.

      “The audiences who most despise this nonsense political effort, are patriotic black people and immigrants of all races who love the country and don’t sit around debating their level of victim-hood.”

      Thank you Sir. You are absolutely right. Not only do we despise it. It sickens us. It sickens us to the very core of our being.

Like Candace Owens who travels to univ to speak about the Dem plantation and a movement she calls Blexit. White folks can support the work of these citizens however possible, but should really stay out of the way. Otherwise we just antagonize a community that is already suspicious and resentful, and not open to hearing us. Just as they don’t respect the simpering white limo-liberals with their kneeling and foot-washing, they don’t want to hear the truth of their history from white conservatives.

          The one thing I would disagree with is that white people should stay out of the way. In my view that has been the failing of the republican party. We stayed out of the way. Every time a republican dared to name the problem they got branded as racist and that was enough to shut them up. Think about it. In 50+ years one republican went to blacks (I refuse to use the term AA) and asked “what have you got to lose”? Just one. Look at what happened when candidate Trump asked that question. Of course he was branded as racist. But the people who needed to hear it heard it and they started thinking and asking questions. Thinking and asking questions is always they way the red pill makes it in.

          That is what is frightening the bidens, and clayburns. They know blacks are getting their eyes opened. They know the questions are getting asked. They know Blexit is happening and that spells electoral defeat for them. Hence the goons beating up blacks and burning black business. Its the mafia all over again. Only this time all tax payers get to pay for it.

          Notice not a single demonrat has mentioned the name David Dorn or black police officers killed or the 30+ blacks murdered just last weekend alone. Not a single demonrat has ever – to my knowledge – talked about the exceedingly high rate of crime among blacks. Nope can’t discuss that. Just keep telling them to hate America, hate white people, hate police. Tell them charter schools are bad. Them them home schooling is for members of the KKK. Tell them anything that keeps them on the plantation. But keep them on the plantation. Remember “they going put y’all back in chains”?

          It is such a shame. Shelby Steele, Larry Elder, Clarence Thomas, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell are old men. They made so much stride and the evil that is the demonrat party has set it all back. I thank God that those men are still here to provide perspective
          and I thank God there are young black men and women who have stepped up to the plate. It is unfortunate that we have to start from scratch.

    Dr. Steele’ testimony was very powerful. He, Horace Cooper, Ward Connolly, Thomas Sewell, Woodman, have been rightfully calling attention to the problem of breakdown of the family, no fathers present, for decades.
    Unfortunately you seldom hear their points of view bc they aren’t invited to appear on MSM programs to promote that message.
    Horace Cooper noted that $22 trillion has been spent on black initiatives for 60 years and they are worse off now, than back in the 1950s. Back then most blacks were raised in family units, were employed, had higher graduation/literacy rates. He blames “the fixers” for most of what occurred from the 1960s forward.

Oh, my God! Open the eyes of the people to see we are actually ONE, with beautiful diversities.

Waiting for the general to allow another unhinged Dem (and they will be) take their seat is not the solution.

  19. Dr. Steele is right, of course. It’s not about black lives. This generation has been taught that victimization is the highest calling. This is a result of Democrat race-hustlers and academic communist agitators teaching young people that being a permanent, professional victim is the highest calling in life. After all, being a hero is dangerous. It takes effort. It actually helps others. But being a victim is the goal. If you can’t be a victim,yourself, then seek glamourous Associate Victim status.

    Those protestors are all taking selfies of themselves to star in their own movie in which they replace Martin Luther King in their own heads. That’s why there is an explosion of fake hate crimes. There are more fake hate crimes than real ones at this point. A century ago, people valued gold and would go as far the Yukon to get it. Today we value Glamorous Victim Status and will go even farther to have it. And the less racist society becomes, the tighter they cling to victimhood. It’s weird–and pathological.

    Remember Mattress Girl? Yeah–neither does Kirstin Gillabrand. Duke Lacrosse? Rolling Stone’s UVA Hoax? Tawana Brawley? The Starbucks Harvard Business School Scholarship Program? Clock Boy? The list goes on and on. And on and on and on and on. And always in one political direction.

    It’s crazy how people will stab, punch, bruise, assault, shave, graffiti and perjure themselves to get it. They’ll smear feces on themselves, rip their clothes, start fires, lie to reporters and e-mail themselves threats and blackmail just to obtain it.

    But the payoffs can be huge: fame, fortune, celebrity, scholarships, endowed chairs, tenure, Pulitzers Prizes, instant street cred, magazine covers, grants, federal laws bearing your name, famous people fawning over you, actors portraying you in Hollywood blockbusters, book sales, movie rights, rock stars singing your song, the moral high ground, trips to DC, get-out-of-jail free cards to riot and burn down your town, the ability to discredit, silence or even jail your opponents–and that’s just a partial list!

    When you think about that way, you’d be kinda’ crazy not to.

    It’s one thing to peacefully protest. But the mob has killed, looted, burned and ruined the lives and businesses of countless black Americans, not to mention all others. This is not about black lives. It’s about your self-esteem and seeing yourself as sticking it to the man, even as that pathology ruins and kills real black people.

    I’ve never seen such a hate-filled lynch mob with so much undeserved self-esteem.

    But at least you are a Certified Victim(tm) now. Congratulations.

    Thank you for posting this interview. Dr. Steele was refreshing.
    I have absolutely zero “White Guilt,” for certain. Everyone makes their own destiny. Everyone owns their own choices… whether they choose to recognize this or not.
    I’m white and I have a fatherless child. She’s pushing 17, and her father hasn’t seen her since she was 7 months old. (Also owes around 50 grand in child support, which sucks). I knew I was getting divorced before she was born, and I also knew that she needed a parent more than I needed a boyfriend.
    She is an amazing kid; great scholar, very artistic, kind-hearted… And I’m very blessed that her father elected to not participate in her life.
    I do think, to some degree, that it could have turned out differently if she had been a boy. (For one thing, demonstrating how to stand up to pee would have been a disaster!)

  25. “and there are indications of a backlash from within the black community. “

    I would have liked to have read about The backlashes from within the black community, but this linked to an article that had no mention of it. Not being black myself, getting the black communities opinions are the only way I can get an idea of how they see things. How they feel they are being impacted. Dr Steele’s words of wisdom allow me to do that.

    I greatly appreciate Sundance linking to this interview. I rank Dr Steele among one of the greatest thinkers of our time. He, along with Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, and many, many others have taught me valuable lessons in my lifetime.

    These great teachers, along with personal experiences, brought me from being taught racism by both sides as a boy growing up in Detroit during the turbulent 60’s, to working side by side with black men in defense of our country in the military, to working with them to save both white and black veterans that are in the grips of alcoholism and drug addiction. Unfortunately, we lose a lot more than we are able to save.

    These men taught me that unless I’m Jesus Christ reincarnated, that even the best of us are going to have racist thoughts from time to time. It’s being willing to allow God to change me on the inside is what counts.

    Today I want my hand to be open rather than clenched when I reach out to another man. To help rather than to beat down. To stand side by side in defense of others less fortunate. I don’t always do what I should, but rarely do I ever do what I shouldn’t.

    Central problem is breakdown of the family.
    Bingo.

    The other problem is the subliminal desire to be non conforming with an aspect of capitalist society which doesn’t get a lot of attention : banality and boredom.

    There is a yearning to object to the societal imperative to have a two parent home- and to support that home, alas, most parents will have mundane jobs with middle class salaries.

    Instead the yearning is to be an athlete, a rapper, or the true non conformist- a dealer.
    The people looked up to are the lebron James and Jay z’s. Not the Shelby steeles. Or even better the anonymous man working a middle class boring job so he can pay for his family.

    When Obama was elected I thought that there might be a silver lining: that black kids would at least aspire to be lawyers or professors if not presidents. I’d like to see some stats on whether that happened. I doubt it did.

    Regardless of the stale questions, was happy to see Dr. Steele share the statistic that 75% of black children grow up with a father present in their lives. As stated in other replies, the breakdown of the nuclear family is prolly the MOST significant catalyst for societal woes in our country. And that breakdown does not discriminate, it affects any child reared in an ‘incomplete’ family setting…

The threats we are facing to our Republic today, from within, will require the same amount of effort and determination used to eradicate ISIS and the Taliban.

    Quite truthfully, if you step back and think about this for awhile, I think the violence of the left is directly attributable to the only option they are being given as a DIM Presidential candidate.

    They know the primary was a totally staged con job, just as it was for ILary. They know the Chinese Wuhan virus was a staged con job. They are not happy with the latest con. NO ONE wants Creepy QP Joe for President. No one.

    It is no wonder Creepy QP Joe and his handlers wants a virtual convention. I think the backlash will be out of this world bad this time around. The optics alone will tarnish their carefully built brand forever.

    I was told last night that Creepy QP Joe has picked Kaitlyn Jenner as his VP (jokingly, I think). I said, well I guess that’s one way to get around the statement that you are picking a female running mate. I was told, what do you mean, she’s a female? I said that I’m not so sure the other females who were in the race would see it that way. Personally I think there would be h311 to pay if this were the decision.

    I wonder if Kaitlyn would let Creepy QP Joe smell her hair?

    I’ve heard the term “systemic racism” parroted a lot for the last two weeks or so. I’ve heard the term “institutional racism ” and wondered what the difference was so did a google search. According to Wikipedia (yeh, I know) they are one and the same. Further reading reveals that essentially they define both as equal outcomes versus equal opportunity as guaranteed by the constitution and umpteen federal statutes. And, IMHO, the precursor for success in life is education be it academic or skills based, an area glaringly lacking among black Americans. Combine this with a shockingly low number of black fathers in black family homes and it’s no wonder that black children are at a disadvantage to compete as adults. So the liberal model does not help minorities and only serves in raising their expectations and keeping them ever dependent upon liberal handouts instead of preparing them to compete .

    Please, PLEASE defund a couple of PDs in major cities, sit back and let the games begin.

    Let’s start with New Orleans, a city I know. The police get a 103M call (disturbance, mental) and arrive to see a homeless nutjob, off his meds, waving a 2-foot machete or 4-foot pipe. So, we defund and call in the comfortably-shod social worker or, more likely, the cheaper ‘trained’ crisis response person. After about a 30-second conversation with the loon s/he usually calls for police backup – taser to the rescue. Nut wait! The police have been defunded, there’s no immediate response – what’s to do? EMT won’t answer, they won’t enter a scene until it’s safe and secure. Hmmmmm…didn’t teach the reality of this during those bean bag chair sessions in the social work classes.

    OK,you get a 103D (domestic) call, about THE most dangerous call you can get. Get between two partners who’ve been heavily fighting and see what it’s like. Even if hubby (or wifey) has been beating the **** out of the other partner(s) for hours it’s not unusual for both to turn on you in a heartbeat, just look at the numbers of officers who’ve been badly injured and killed (more than a few with their own weapons) responding to domestic calls. Oh yeah, let the, highly trained social workers go into those raw situations with their verbal judo. Even those social workers who go in with police wait until the police have stabilized the situation before they come in. Oh yeah, let them walk in first without backup, that’ll provide some job vacancies so we can at least employ some of those herds of social workers graduating yearly. Sort of a Darwinian process of winnowing our way through to the really competent ones.

    WE have a ‘trained’ crisis response team, I remember the fledgling one in the very early 90s when the Gods of Urban Planning decided we didn’t need secure facilities to house the really whacked out cases, the city/state could save money by stabilizing them and then turning them out on the street with some meds and they could come by the treatment center and pick up new meds.

    As just about all social workers learn the 2nd week of Bleeding Hearts 101, the seriously mentally ill are mentally ill. They never are cured, it’s all about long term management, trying to get them to a level where they can function enough to not require endless one-on-one care. In many, if not most, cases the very ill take their meds until they feel better and then stop taking them – if they thought coherently they wouldn’t need the meds in the 1st case – and slip right back into their own damaged minds. And you can guess how many sell their meds to get drugs, have their meds stolen of just lose/throw them away when they don’t feel they need them. Again, let the social workers and/or ‘trained’ response folks respond cold and alone, provides that job turnover.

    Also note in that ‘spontaneous and wide-reaching crime bill’ the Rats pulled out of their…committee…that no-knock warrants in certain drug cases will be banned. Again, there are those in the innercity community that like that low-level drug activity, they benefit from it, they indulge in it and (among other things) it will help lower innercity crime rates by de facto decriminalizing many drun activities. If you have a group of users who are selling and the possession-for-distribution case can’t be made you’ll have to knock and ask nicely, giving the residents time to flush the product. You’re also going to have judges looking far more closely at the probable cause you present for a search warrant, they’ll be worried about social and legal backfiring from their issued warrants. How to reduce the innercity crime rates – stop arresting innercity criminals.

    Watch next for more sharper restrictions on civilians, especially CCW holders, on when/if you can use deadly force in defense of yourself and others. That’s bee a long time acomin’ and it has the impetus to go for it now. If ‘trained’ LEA will have their abilities to use force, never mind deadly force, limited civilian use of force can’t help but suffer too. But what are a few innocent lives lost in pursuit of a social agenda?
