Guest Review: No Matter What, They'l Call This Book Racist, by Harry Stein

This review was submitted by reader/commenter JJ.

...

This past weekend, friend and author Harry Stein ("How I Accidentally Joined the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy and Found Inner Peace," "I Can't Believe I'm Sitting Next to a Republican") let me read the galleys to his soon to be released book "No Matter What, They'll Call This Book Racist" (Encounter Books, release date 4/17/12). In light of the Soldedad O'Brien Critical Race Theory embarrassment and the geschrei from the usual gang of thugs about voter ID laws, I half-jokingly told Harry that he could delay publishing the book, but the minute it goes to press something else is sure to happen. Cue the Trayvon Little shooting.

Race-baiting, demagoguery and the perpetuation of the eternal victim myth have allowed the left to keep black America in bondage for over 50 years while the merchants of multiculturalism eat away at our society and pervert Dr. King's credo of content of character over color of skin. The book dovetails history with current events as it examines, as the libbos like to say, the real "root causes" of why black America is the way it is; affirmative action, the absent black father, multiculturalism and today's black culture that applauds reprehensible behavior as "authentic" while persecuting "Uncle Toms" and "sellouts" who have rejected this and embraced and thrived in mainstream America. There's also a fascinating chapter comparing the lives and beliefs of the forgotten Booker T. Washington and the wrongly celebrated W.E.B. DuBois and, crucially one spotlighting black conservatives who are the hope for the future. And, by the way, who knew that Eldridge Cleaver, in his later years, not only castigated black America for embracing Islam but became a conservative and Republican?

Here's a taste, courtesy of the author:

Wallace’s June 1963 refusal to allow two black students to enter the hallowed halls of the University of Alabama was the fulfillment of the infamous pledge he’d made at his inauguration five months earlier. Standing at the precise spot where Jefferson Davis took the oath of office as president of the Confederate States of America a century before, he declared, “I say segregation today, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever.”

So despicable was the thinking represented by that pronouncement that for millions of Americans it will forever remain Wallace’s epitaph; this, despite his late-career disavowal of racial bigotry and his strong support from black Alabamians in his last campaigns. In fact, in retrospect Wallace was a complicated and even a tragic figure, in many ways representative of the lightning-fast transformation of the Old South to the New South. (Hardly incidentally, he anticipated the mass disillusionment with traditional liberalism that would lead to the wholesale exodus of working-class whites from FDR’s New Deal coalition and the rise of Reagan Democrats.) I myself, very much later, came to appreciate his bizarre yet somehow apt characterization during his 1968 presidential campaign of the liberal elites as “pointy heads who can’t park a bicycle straight.” But that’s another matter.

It was the indelibility of Wallace’s earlier racism, expressed as it was with such callous and intractable certainty, that made a declaration by Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick more than 40 years later so startling. Appearing at an NAACP dinner on April 30, 2006, in the middle of a campaign launched by affirmative action opponents for a Michigan state proposition aimed at ending government racial and gender preferences in education and hiring, the mayor pledged: “Affirmative action today, tomorrow, and forever.”

Nor did the mayor himself fare any better: Charged three years later with 10 felony counts of corruption, he resigned his office, and for a time found himself federal inmate No. 44678–039. Ultimately, Kilpatrick and his allies were unsuccessful, as that November Michigan’s Proposal 2 passed overwhelmingly. But what’s far more significant is that among his fellow liberals his eerie, repulsive echo of Wallace elicited absolutely no criticism. To the contrary, hearing it, his NAACP listeners erupted in cheers; and they, too, went without censure in the press and elsewhere. Indeed, campaigning at Kilpatrick’s side in 2008, then-presidential candidate Obama bestowed upon him a particularly heartfelt helping of boilerplate, declaring him “a leader, not just here in Detroit, not just in Michigan, but all across the country people look to him. We know that he is going to be doing astounding things for many years to come. I’m grateful to call him a friend.”

Welcome to the wide world of civil rights activism in a time when all the meaningful battles have long since been won. Which is to say, an activism that—largely for purposes of reaping liberal support and government dollars—tirelessly promotes the fraud that today’s version of racism constitutes a moral crisis nearly on a par with the virulent kind once represented by Wallace.


Definitely a must-read for all you 'rons and 'ronettes out there, especially in light of what is happening now. It's crucial, I think, to not be silenced about what's going on here and have the courage to speak honestly and openly about this issue. If we can take away the race card from the left, they've got very little after that.

His latest effort, if it can be called that, is as lazy and shallow as everything he writes.

8 There's a South Park episode where the price of doing something inadretantly racist is to publicly apologize,visit JesseJackson, and thenbend down and kiss Jackson on his naked bottom.

I don't know if this has anything to do with the book, but it seems similar.

That was me.I suppose so. When I first saw that sign during the election season, I said to myself, "that poster is full of WIN". It was fucking brilliant and prescient at the same time. I think Harry Stein saw it too and wanted to pay homage to it in the best way he could think of.

If
you are taught bitterness and anger, then you will believe you are a
victim. You will feel aggrieved and the twin brother of aggrievment is
entitlement. So now you think you are owed something and you don't have
to work for it and now you're on a really bad road to nowhere because
there are people who will play to that sense of victimhood, aggreivement
and entitlement, and you still won't have a job.” ~ Condaleeza Rice

65 Yesterday, I ran into a mixed race (black/white) 4 year old and his white grandparents who were raising him. The mom was in the picture. The black father was nowhere to be found. I run across this multiple times a year. And here's the thing--the cretins on the left have created a world where you're not even allowed to discuss things like the 70% black illegitimacy rate.

How 'bout that? Aren't we always being told we need more "dialogue" about race in this country? Frankly, I'm sick and tired of talking about race and have been for more than 20 years ... but ... if we're going to talk about it, then let's talk about it. All of it. Including how blacks (in the aggregate) are every bit as racist as whites, if not more.

74 The UC college system reverse discriminates, in that they restrict the number of Asians admitted. It is so notable that some Asians change their last name to improve their admission chances. Hmmm, seems like The Bell Curve mentioned their average IQ being quite a bit higher than whites.

Am I being racist yet?

A number of studies have shown that using AA in admission policies results in students dropping out in higher percentages; they are not academically prepared to handle the work.

I guess that's racist too.

There is no chance to have an honest dialogue about the issues.

78 (There is no chance to have an honest dialogue about the issues.)

No. Because some facts are forbidden.

What we have is a dysfunctional culture that breeds ignorance, underachievement, irresponsibility, criminal behavior, and government dependency.

But we can't talk about it.

We're supposed to ignore what's right in front of our noses and pretend we don't see it.

Heck, if you want to go deeper, how is this for a question? Why should I view those from the black underclass as equals to begin with? Am I supposed to learn something from them? Seriously, what's to talk about? I am a happy married man who is faithful to his wife, works hard, earns a good living, owns a nice home, takes care of his property, minds his own business, pays his taxes, and is raising his kids to be polite, responsible, productive, well educated young men.

Most men in the black underclass are a bunch of uneducated, no-account, criminally inclined fuck-ups who do little but undermine the proper functioning of our civil society.*

I don't get it. What's to talk about? Am I supposed to be the problem? No, I am not the problem. Fuck off with your fucking dialogue. Start modeling the behavior I learned from my father and he from his father instead.

*And yes, all these things can be said to some degree about the white underclass as well, but no one is clamoring for a "dialogue" about it.

79 You gotta love the Jacksons, Sharptons Etc ..the problem we will have if we do not get the illegal Mexican ,immigration problem under control is that Hispanics eat up too much of the welfare that we designated for Blacks and Poor White Trash, etc..Now you never hear Jessie or Al speak about that now do you? When Blacks have racial pride it is not questioned, when Whites want to show pride it is always prejudice. Same thing with Gays..ever see a straight Pride parade in Frisco...We have been taught this through Madison Ave all things Black and men that are Feminine are good for all....Classic example on NPR...A black was given a free 2 story house to live in out of his current war zone. He had only 1 problem, how to pay the gas bill..forward 6 months later the NPR people checked to see how he was doing,
He had not moved out of the Section 8 or Government housing , but he did find another social service agency to help with that gas bill...Let the Johnson Administration be damned for this devolution, as generation to generation we brought this upon ourselves , now we have a class of white's buying into sucking the Government Breast...

80 Wasn't the name "Trayvon Little" in the news at some
time? ....Like, a sports figure, or a singer,or something? ....The name
rings a distant bell with me.

82 I wonder if now, after 50 years of liberal meddling, the "black community" isn't pretty much in the same situation as the Palestinians: Mark Steyn calls them "the most comprehensively wrecked people on the face of the earth". In other words, that they've passed the point of no return. There are individual exceptions, just as there are individual Palestinians who succeed. But those people only do so by emigrating to a free country, and escaping the futile pesthole that engendered them. I think the same thing has happened in America: the blacks that are successful and well-adjusted are the ones who've "emigrated" from the stifling conformity of loserdom that prevails wherever blacks form a majority. There's no hope unless they escape that community and assimilate into the healthier majority.

84 "pervert Dr. King's credo of content of character over color of skin"

pedantic maybe, but this is false revisionism, especially with regards to 1968 MLK, who explicitly endorsed racial quotas as the only fair hiring policy ("if 20% of the city is black, 20% of its employees should be black" was the gist of it.) not to take away from the rest of his life, but obviously he was referring to black people not being judged negatively, not forming a raceless society (which shouldn't be a and isn't a conservative principle anyway.) in any case i would not be surprised if MLK today would've been a doctrinaire liberal and don't feel any need to pretend otherwise.

also this "bondage" rhetoric -- why wouldn't blacks continue voting for the party of affirmative action, for their immediate benefit? this doesn't make it right of course but it's pretty easy to see why they prefer the Dems

85 also would i be correct in guessing that the author is one of those right-wing converts who in actuality is essentially a libertarian? NTTAWWT (well...) and not to ASSume, buuut...

86 John Derbyshire is going to soooo love this review!

Go get 'em, tigers! No letting the left and their race card control you all. In theory.

Harry Stein has beendeconstructing the conundrum of race in America for a long time, mostly at City Journal, for my money the best political/historical magazine on the stands. He worked closely with Ward Connerly on several of the anti-affirmative action initiatives. He is a fearless advocate for equality for all and a fearless opponent of racial preferences.
I doubt know where Harry got the title for his latest book but it's a brilliant pre-emptive strike against all the crap he's going to get from all the race hustlers and limo libs in the media and academia.
A fan for many years, I've read all Stein's books and can't wait to read it. Amazon promises me it'll be here tomorrow. I hope they're not lying.

88 Harry Stein needs to make his books available for e-book. Flipping pages seems so old-fashioned now.

89 I read the book - it's no bomb-tossing rhetorical flourishing, but a really compelling work of scholarship, history, and Stein's clear-eyed condemnation of the race grievance industry. About damn time someone said this stuff. I hope it opens up some much -needed debate this election season, now that Holder has made it so very clear that he thinks Sharpton's on the side of the angels.
