Here's a really long article from the Hollywood Investigator in 2003 that traces Stein's career:
Ben's a real pull-yourself-up-by-your-own-bootstraps kind of guy:
|Stein recalled a black woman who'd asked him, following his speech at Pepperdine University, how people were to get an education after cuts in the school budget. "What I said to her was, no public school system has ever been invented that is so poor that a really well-motivated, well- disciplined student cannot get an education. There's libraries, there's internet, there's newspapers, there are inexpensive books. Some of the problem of the unemployment among inner city African-Americans is due to their own inability to educate themselves, to get themselves marketable skills. |
"I'm a huge fan of rap. I'm floored at the incredible creativity and discipline and hard work of some of these rap stars who make themselves into giant sensations. I keep thinking to myself, the inner city is an enormous reservoir of talent that has yet to be tapped by America -- but it has to tap itself first of all."
