'The Souls of Black Folk' Why are we still caught up in century-old protest politics?

This article is by Shelby Steele, a member of the Hoover Institution (and a hell of an economist who wrote his thesis in defense of supply side economics). I find his analysis of racial preferences utterly fascinating because he explains most clearly why affirmative action does not work and will never work: because it trades the illusion of equality for black people for the illusion of guiltlessness for white people.

This article is definitely worth reading.
