Shelby Steele: ‘Take the Knee’ Victim Culture is Designed to ‘Tap Into White Guilt’

Following the recent death of George Floyd at the hands of police, America has been engulfed in mass protests against police brutality and racial injustice. A diverse set of protesters are chanting, “Black Lives Matter” and “No Justice, No Peace,” opposing what they believe is a condition of ‘systemic racism’ which victimizes African-Americans in the United States. Beyond the rhetoric, is this actually the case?

One of America’s leading cultural and historic commentators is academic scholar, Dr. Shelby Steele, the author of Shame: How America’s Past Sins Have Polarized Our Country. In this in-depth interview, he tells stories about growing up in segregated Chicago and the fights he and his family went through to end segregation in their neighborhood schools. He draws upon his own experiences facing racism while growing up in order to inform his opinions on current events. Steele also talks about more recent African-American movements, including his views on the NFL “Take the Knee” protests, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the truth behind incessant left-wing claims of “systemic racism” in 21st century America.

He was appointed a Hoover fellow in 1994. Steele has written widely on race in American society and the consequences of contemporary social programs on race relations. Steele holds a PhD in English from the University of Utah, an MA in sociology from Southern Illinois University, and a BA in political science from Coe College, Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
