Stanford’s Shelby Steele Says Barack Obama Always Felt the Need to Call Himself Black to Fit Into Leftist Politics


Tonight on Martha McCallum’s show, brilliant Stanford lecturer and author Shelby Steele, a conservative born of a white mother and a black father, said that Barack Obama growing up was compelled to call himself black because of the leftist politics of his parents (a white mother and a black father), also that the biggest problem facing blacks in the U. S. is the staggering reality that 75% of black kids grow-up in homes without the father there to lead and guide.
