This book deals with our utter failure to deal honestly with a broad range of issues involving race in this country. Why? Because to tell the truth about matters like crime or black educational underachievement would mean facing up to the soul-destroying pathologies common to urban black culture. Far better, in the view of black leaders and their guilty white allies, to relentlessly blame the intractable problems that continue to afflict the black community on historic oppression and lack of government funding, and to characterize those who challenge such a view and try to come up with genuine solutions as - what else? - racist.
"No book I've read better captures (and documents) the utter disingenuousness of America's racial politics over the past half century--the lazy moral unctuousness of white guilt on the one hand, the shakedown mentality of today's civil rights establishment on the other. But what makes this a compelling read is the way Stein--a cultural journeyer--finds his own moral and political center by unraveling this recent history. He certainly will be called a "racist," which is why this book is so brave."
"I sometimes hear from parents who have been appalled to learn that the child they sent away to college to become educated has instead been indoctrinated with the creed of the left. They often ask if I can suggest something to have their offspring read over the summer, in order to counteract this indoctrination.This year the answer is a no-brainer: "No Matter What... They'll Call This Book Racist" by Harry Stein. In a little over 200 very readable pages, the author deftly devastates with facts the nonsense about race that dominates much of what is said in the media and in academia...Stein says that his purpose is 'to talk honestly about race.' He accomplishes that purpose in a fact-filled book that should be a revelation, especially to young people of any race, who have been fed a party line in schools and colleges across America."
