CALGARY -Shelby Steele and Al Sharpton don't agree about much. In fact, Steele has few complimentary things to say about the reverend or his cronies, like Jesse Jackson, in what Steele considers America's racial "shakedown" racket, good for little more than exploiting white complexes to extract money and power. But when the two -- Sharpton and Steele -- recently spent an evening together, they discovered a shared worry: that a Barack Obama victory might actually turn out badly for American race relations.
