"I’m not saying that you won’t find many patterns or practices of racial mistreatment in history, but I’m saying that the link between them and the contemporary circumstances of African-American communities, especially at the bottom end, is woefully inadequate to explain what we see."

Glenn Loury: Reject race politics and embrace humanity
14 Feb 2022
Freddie Sayers meets Glenn Loury.
To get a handle on some of the race related news stories coming out of America, from Biden’s Supreme Court nomination to Joe Rogan’s cancellation, Freddie Sayers spoke to Glenn Loury, an economist and cultural critic. Loury was the first African American tenured professor of economics in the history of Harvard University and has set himself apart from his contemporaries by taking a sceptical view of the racialised rhetoric of American academia. In this wide-ranging conversation he discusses model minorities, Black Lives Matter and Whoopi Goldberg's alleged antisemitism.
At least Glenn Loury is confident enough to speak the truth!
Glenn Loury definitely hit the nail on the head.
We should stop separate everyone by skin colour foundation and obvious racial kind.
FOR SURE - HE IS NOT ALONE!!
"The land of the free - we've got an army marching around the world under the banner of freedom, and yet, we are the most un-free society, in terms of institutions of the deprivation of liberty, of incarceration. The incidents of incarceration is higher in the United States than elsewhere in the world."
- Glenn Loury
It means a lot for everyone with a carring cry!
A modest action merits praise to all theories.
