In this column collection, Elder takes on a range of controversial issues -- from the minimum wage to Confederate monuments, from Obamacare to national anthem protests -- with his signature wit and uncommon good sense.
A “firebrand libertarian” according to Daily Variety, Larry Elder is a bestselling author, radio and TV talk show host with a take-no-prisoners style, using such old-fashioned things as evidence and logic. Elder shines the bright light of reasoned analysis on many of the myths and hypocrisies apparent in our government, our society and our media. He slays dragons and topples sacred cows with facts, common sense and a ready wit.
Elder hosted the longest-running afternoon drive-time radio show in Los Angeles for 15 years, beginning in March 1994. “The Larry Elder Show,” a top-rated daily program on KABC 790, became a nationally syndicated daily talk show for ABC Radio Networks on Aug. 12, 2002. Known to his listeners as the “Sage From South Central,” Elder sizzles on the airwaves with his thoughtful insight on the day’s most provocative issues, to the delight, consternation and entertainment of his listeners.
In his bestselling book "The 10 Things You Can’t Say in America," Elder skewers the crippling myths that dominate the public agenda. Elder punctures all pretension, trashes accepted “wisdom” and puts everyone on notice that the status quo must be shaken up. In his second book, "Showdown: Confronting Bias, Lies and the Special Interests That Divide America," Elder again takes on the nanny state, the “victicrats” and the politically correct. His latest book, "What’s Race Got to Do with It? Why It’s Time to Stop the Stupidest Argument in America," is being praised as a groundbreaking must-read for the future of race relations in America. Elder also writes a nationally syndicated newspaper column distributed by Creators Syndicate.
Elder was also host of the television shows “Moral Court” and “The Larry Elder Show.” Elder created, directed and produced the film “Michael & Me,” a documentary that examines gun use in America.
