In 1955 Emmet Till, a black Mississippi youth, was killed and his white killers were acquitted. Forty years later, despite having DNA evidence working against his case, accused murderer O. J. Simpson walked free after his attorney portrayed him as a victim of racism. The age of white supremacy has given rise to an era of white guilt, and neither has been good for African Americans.
Shelby Steele, acclaimed race relations scholar, uses articulate analysis and engrossing recollections to sound a powerful call for a new culture of personal responsibility.
