On The Glenn Show, Glenn and John discuss whether Paula Deen should have been fired for her use of a racial slur. They consider Deen’s Southern heritage and debate the offensiveness of the Confederate flag. Turning to the Supreme Court, they evaluate whether Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act deserved to be struck down. John argues that many African-Americans have constructed an identity around victimhood. Glenn suggests that Latino voters wield more influence because they haven’t committed to either political party. Glenn also brings up the odd case of Allen West and briefly addresses the Supreme Court’s punt on affirmative action.
Nikita Petrov and John Horgan discuss Russian philosopher Nikolai Fyodorov, who claimed that immortality can be reached through science, but we will only deserve it if we resurrect all previous generations.
