Glenn Loury: Reject race politics and embrace humanity

Freddie Sayers spoke to the economist about race relations in America
by UnHerd

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 anti-Semitism.

Thank you, Freddie. This was one of the most enjoyable interviews I have heard on UnHerd lately.
I have run into Glen Loury’s name before, but your discussion was informative and encouraging for me.
