Shelby Steele has a lot to say about black society. He calls it common sense. Some call him an Uncle Tom.

“The only thing that makes me interesting as a writer,” Shelby Steele
says, “is that I’m just talking common sense. The most ordinary, everyday sort
of common sense.”
Correction. What sets Steele apart is that he’s saying things many people,
even those who secretly agree with him, would rather not hear. He says that
blacks should take responsibility for their own disproportionate crime rates
and poor academic performance and not blame a system imposed on them by whites;
that whites support affirmative action and other “silly racial policies” out of
fear, to avoid accusations of racism.
That is true, blacks should start taking responsibility for their actions and not blaming them on whites. They should stop selling crack and start finding a job. If they are so good at selling drugs, they should be great in sales. When some one offers a job, take it instead of saying that it is the white mans fault that they do not have a job.
