Shelby Steele on Why Barack Obama Cannot Win

In this talk delivered at Cody's Books, author Shelby Steele talks about his book A Bound Man: Why We Are Excited About Obama and Why He Can't Win. Steele contends that presidential candidate Barack Obama is a politician unto which people are projecting all of their various political hopes, but that Obama is not expressing his true convictions and if he does so, he risks losing the election. As a black conservative author, Steele points out the various masks that African-Americans have worn throughout the past century for white Americans and argues that Obama is also wearing the mask of a "black identity". This talk is available on streaming video and MP3 download from FORA.tv.
