Glenn Loury (Manhattan InstituteBrown University) and John McWhorter (Columbia University, Lexicon ValleyNew York Times)

On The Glenn Show, the topic is affirmative action. Glenn fears the Supreme Court will issue a broad anti-affirmative action ruling. Does the kind of indirect affirmative action practiced by Texas’s top 10% system do more harm than good? John and Glenn debate whether affirmative action’s time has simply passed. Glenn challenges John on whether hiring preferences for women should be done away with as well. John cites his biracial daughter as someone who should not receive affirmative action. They close by discussing class-based affirmative action and the mismatch hypothesis.
