Shelby Steele: Claims of 'systemic racism' are 'expanding the territory of entitlement'

Author and documentarian Shelby Steele, a Hoover Institution fellow, discussed why he believes the new widespread claims of "systemic racism" in American culture are "expanding the territory of entitlement."

Steele, author of the tome "White Guilt: How Blacks and Whites Together Destroyed the Promise of the Civil Rights Era" and "Shame: How America's Past Sins Have Polarized Our Country," joined Mark Levin for an interview airing Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on "Life Liberty & Levin," in which he expounded on that topic.

Levin asked Steele about the growing protests mixed with unrest in "mostly Democrat, one-party cities; mostly Democrat, one-party states," and the fact that top Democrats like Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Joe Biden "barely acknowledge" the rioting and looting going on.

"You see the media that report that most of this is peaceful and you see the allegation: systemic racism," Levin said.

Shelby Steel nails it on the head.
