With a title like Stupid Black Men and the state of our PC society, it is no wonder author Larry Elder is experiencing (as he writes in an essay for Town Hall) difficulty in securing bookings to promote his book. He says, “Bookings to promote my new book Stupid Black Men: How to Play the Race Card — and Lose,” have been difficult. Many media outlets — television, radio, magazines — flatly turn me down, because they find the title ”˜offensive.’ The unwillingness to offend, to avoid the appearance of racism, proves one of the main points of my book — that white racism no longer poses a significant problem in American life.”
Author Elder is a problem for the PC crowd who thrives on controlling the black community through fear mongering. He decries the cottage industry of some black leaders that make victims out of the black community. As a black man, he has experience and as a learned man, he points out the flaws in the victim mentality.

Elder discusses the race issue openly and debunks the ideas set forth by those in the black community (and society at large) who would say the ”˜man’ is keeping the community ”˜down.’ He doesn’t leave anyone behind in delivering his message. He takes on the liberal media, Hollywood celebrities, Al Sharpton, Hillary Clinton, Jesse Jackson, Danny Glover and others.

While Elder is witty and sometimes downright humorous, there is no mistaking his seriousness. And he follows up his assertions with facts and figures. He successfully tackles the state of ”˜race’ in America and also delivers a message of hope. Work hard, think, make good choices and be positive.

Armchair Interviews says: Larry Elder’s Stupid Black Men is a must read.
