Fox News, Shelby Steele calls out Biden over Floyd funeral remarks: 'Does he really deeply care about black America'?, Charles Creitz, June 12, 2020
Martha McCallum with Dr. Shelby Steele
- "What happened in Minneapolis is an obvious tragedy. But it is not something that is going to interrupt our greatness, and it tells us all the more clearly that we have to be the engineers of our fate. We have to be the agents of our fate in America“.
- "We need to go with that, to like ourselves, to respect ourselves, and stop continually trying to solicit to the Joe Bidens of the world in that corrupt symbiosis with white guilt; thinking that that is our way ahead. It is not our way ahead -- we are our own best resource."
- "We live in, for a lack of a better term, a white guilt world," Steele told "The Story" host Martha MacCallum. "What is Mr. Biden doing? Does he really deeply care about black America and the problems that we have, or is he using our pain as a kind of advertisement of his own moral vanity?"
- "Does [Biden] know anything at all, really, about the difficulties that black Americans face now, many of which have nothing in the world to do with racism?"
- The author went on to compare what he called the "white guilt exploitation of black pain" to the more obvious sin of segregation.
- "In either case, we end up as blacks dependent on what people like Joe Biden, the Democratic Party, American liberalism, what those things do," he said. "We in a sense are dependent on them, and we are trained and encouraged to see our opportunity through them."
