In Blind Conceit, Parker lays out how the progressive liberal agenda, often touted as being helpful to the African-American community, has been nothing short of destructive through its War on Religion, which weakened our public institutions and opened the door to a culture of corruption, its War on Marriage, which weakened women and opened the door to a culture of meaninglessness, and its War on Poverty, which weakened the family and opened the door to a culture of entitlements, writes Parker. Seven years of first-hand experience in the grip of welfare dependency gave Parker the understanding and insight to the failure of the system. After helping craft federal Welfare Reform legislation in the mid-90s, she founded the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE) to bring new ideas to policy discussions on how to transition America's poor from government dependency through market-based solutions. Star has a bachelor's degree in marketing and international business from Woodbury University and has received numerous awards and commendations for her work on public policy issues. The liberal progressive social justice lie of the left gripped Americas poor and minority communities some 50 years ago and locked three generations into economic stagnation and dependency on a welfare state, explains Parker. And today, progressive liberalism is financially choking our entire society. Parker regularly consults with both federal and state legislators on market- based strategies to fight poverty; she has spoken on more than 190 colleges and universities about anti-poverty initiatives; has authored several books; and is a nationally syndicated columnist with Creators.
