SHELBY STEELE – Dan Proft Counterculture Episode 9

Author and filmmaker Shelby Steele said using race as a criterion to “deny or to benefit” someone is, in fact, racism.

“If you’re going to make me the Vice President of the United States because of my race, that’s no different than giving me welfare for my race or college admissions for my race, whatever,” Steele told host Dan Proft on the Counter Culture Podcast.

“You’re using race as a criterion to deny or to benefit somebody for whose humanity you are overlooking,” said Steele.

A senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, Steele is an author, columnist, and documentary filmmaker who specializes in the study of race relations, multiculturalism, and affirmative action.

Steele’s book, “The Content of Our Character: A New Vision for Race in America,” won the the National Book Critics Circle Award for nonfiction in 1990. In this work, Steele delves into the complexities of race relations in the United States and offers a personal reflection on the challenges and potential solutions.
