  • This political style these men employ Shelby Steele depicts it best in his book, A Bound Man. Steele states that, in the African-American community, there are two types of people -- the "bargainer" and the "challenger."

    A bargainer strikes a bargain with white America in which they say. "I will not rub America's ugly history of racism in our face if you will not hold my race against me."

    A challenger, on the other hand, does the opposite of a "bargainer." A "challenger" charges white people with inherent racism and then demands they prove themselves innocent by supporting black-friendly polices like affirmative action and diversity.
