What No One Wants to Say About Racial Disparities (Pt. 2) | Glenn Loury | POLITICS | Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Brown university economist Glenn Loury about why it’s controversial for a black man to be against diversity and inclusion, affirmative action, and reparations. Glenn also shares his thoughts on why the narrative of systemic racism and racial disparities is wrong and how the Democratic party pushes lies to get the support of black voters. In this clip Glenn discusses Thomas Sowell and his book ”Discrimination and Disparities”. Glenn talks about why racial disparities have always existed and perfect equality is the historic abnormality. There have always been disparities between different groups and blaming systemic racism does not explain why the disparities occur. Glenn outlines the hard work that needs to be done if society wants to eliminate racial disparities in education and income. Glenn also talks about how the single parent family is far too often a typical example of a black family in the black community. He stresses how damaging an absent father can be on a child’s future. He also discusses how the war on poverty has helped some, but also harmed many others by the welfare state creating a poverty trap. Is the state of US news driving you crazy?
