‘Stupid Black Men’ Play The Race Card

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Black people need to stop playing the race card because, frankly, it’s getting old.

So says Los Angeles-based radio host Larry Elder, who has just penned Stupid Black Men (St. Martin’s Press), a controversial book about obliterating the race card in American politics and society once and for all.

Elder wants to put an end to what he calls “BMW” – Bitching, Moaning, and Whining – which goes hand-in- hand with blacks who use the “race done me wrong” argument to excuse their lack of education and success.

He argues that the race card is “played out” and that things aren’t nearly as bad as they were for blacks during the Civil Rights movements.

He also believes that Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcom X would be disappointed in today’s blacks and the way they utilize race as a cop out.

Elder says, “By playing the race card it’s as if all the civil rights work was done in vain. The race argument is over, the good guys won. This isn’t your grandfather’s America anymore. Blacks need to calm down and realize it’s not 1955.”

Stupid Black Men is out now.
