Gutsy Lawyer Examines Race in America Today
Defensive Racism: "An eye-opening and honest, no-holds-barred look at race relations in America today."
November 8, 2004
"'Ed Steele for President.' Don't be too surprised if you start hearing such rumblings over the next four years. With the release of Defensive Racism, the hard-hitting new book by the outspoken Idaho attorney, Steele is sure to become more and more recognized among those who believe not only that things are wrong in America, but also that eventually they can be righted.
"It was due time for Steele to write a book, already having skyrocketed to widespread acclaim with his no-holds-barred Internet newsletter and his popular public speaking engagements across the country. And now, in Defensive Racism, Steele has come forth with a book-length exposition of his philosophy - and one that reflects the thinking of quite a few people in America today, though many might be so prepared to admit it.
"Subtitled "An Unapologetic Examination of Racial Differences," Steele's book encompasses a wide-ranging array of issues - some that, to the uninitiated, might seem unrelated, but all of which, in the end, come together in a remarkable tapestry that looks candidly at the reality of the American situation today. As Steele makes so patently and disturbingly clear, the much-discussed subject of 'racism' - however defined, rightly or wrongly - underlies the crisis in America and the world in a fashion that otherwise may not be so readily apparent.
"A commanding presence on the podium and equally effective at the keyboard, Steele is able, in simple, yet eloquent, language to convey what might be perceived as 'controversial' - dare we say even 'inflammatory' - opinions about difficult topics in modern American life. Steele refers to the status of race relations, the problems stemming from rampant and uncontrolled immigration and the belligerent flexing of political muscle by the adherents of Zionism who arrogantly reign supreme over their paid and blackmailed political henchmen in elective and appointive offices.
"Many folks over the years have labored to put their views into print, but Defensive Racism is a book that, unlike many if not most others, will stimulate lively and thought-provoking discussion. And whether you agree or disagree with any or all of what Steele has to say, you'll certainly conclude that this is an author who has an uncanny ability to lay out the bottom line in a folksy, engaging fashion, writing in a friendly, colloquial style even while addressing some 'dangerous' areas of debate.
"Of course, there will be those who will energetically rush forward to loudly defame Steele as a 'racist' and a 'bigot' and an 'anti-Semite' - among other familiar terms common in public discussion today. However, that is par for the course and is the standard treatment for anyone who dares to bring to the table any free-thinking approach to the subjects that Steele dares to confront.
"The fact is that an open-minded reader will find it difficult to discern any venom in Steele's words but will discover that his views constitute a lot of common sense wisdom.
"In 376 lively pages, bound in a durable hard-bound edition with an attractive dust cover, Defensive Racism is a book for all those who have an interest in America's future, and that includes people of all races and creeds.
"The years ahead may be a nightmare come alive, but even bad dreams can have a happy ending. Ed Steele provides a formula for a 'New America' that could very well be a prescription for putting to rest many sleepless nights that would otherwise be fraught with terror."
