Barack Not Black Enough

Shelby Steele's thesis (A Bound Man) published January 2008 is already outdated.
The part where he says Barack can't win, I mean.

The book is exceptionally well written and as a hyphenated American myself (Japanese-) I welcomed the perspective. I just think it's counter productive. I had to be taught that I was different before I knew I was. I'm just human, my blood is red, and I bleed, too.
