In our latest podcast, Harry Stein, a Manhattan Institute scholar, contributing editor at City Journal magazine, and a journalist who has written for publications ranging from TV Guide to Esquire, along with writing a half-dozen screenplays, discusses his new book, No Matter What…They’ll Call This Book Racist: How our Fear of Talking Honestly About Race Hurts Us All.
In 2008, we were told that electing Barack Obama president would put an end to centuries of American racism — and America did just that. And…yet, “unexpectedly,” racial tensions have only increased. During our interview, Harry discusses:
- How a now-legendary sign at a 2009 Tea Party rally influenced the title of his new book.
- What ever happened to the folks who gasped “I Can’t Believe I’m Sitting Next to a Republican!” when Harry tried to warn them that the clothes had no emperor inside them back in 2008.
- How the Romney campaign should respond to cries of…”That’s racist!”, which will accompany every successful attack they have on on Mr. Obama.
- Harry’s take on recent events, such as the media’s Trayvon Martin fiasco, John Derbyshire’s recent self-immolation, plus his thoughts on some of the leading black conservatives of the day.
