recently passed at age 83.
Elder is a fresh voice but unfortunately a lonely voice (only Shelby Steele and John McWhorter have really joined him in the dialogue) out there. The glaring and disturbing fact that he is ignored, and that his radio show is shunned by most liberal Blacks, makes it sadly clear that a herd mentality persists in the Black community. Most are not open to other views even as some refuse to accept the victimhood status thrust upon them by White and Black liberals alike.
A moving, get-real account that deserves a much wider readership than it will garner.
