"Crazies to the Left of Me, Wimps to the Right (Kindle edition)"

What got my attention was the discussion of race. He asks: "When did Republicans lose their nerve on race? And why?" According to Shelby Steele: "White guilt does not depend on the goodwill or geniune decency of people. It depends upon their fear of stigmatization, their fear of being called racist." But white guilt doesn't just apply to conservatives nor Republicans, nor does fear as the following quote shows: "There is no subject that journalists fear more than race in America. None." And, "The problem is that reporters tend to be liberal and liberals don't really want to ask "uncomfortable" questions about race, because the entire subject of race makes them uncomfortable. Unless of course it is framed in the usual safe, familiar terms."

Wimpiness on the subject of race is bipartisan. But you have to look hard in this book to see that. It could have been made clearer. Making it seem political just confuses the matter.
