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

On The Glenn Show, Glenn and John discuss the charge that Newark mayoral candidate Shavar Jeffries might not be “black enough” to run that city. Glenn, remembering Obama’s early failed run against Rep. Bobby Rush in Chicago, asks what’s wrong with voters objecting to a candidate who seems inauthentic. John counters that judging candidates on superficial characteristics won’t help minority communities. Glenn contends that the gut is often as important as the mind in politics. Next: Is Spike Lee right about gentrification in Brooklyn? Can gentrification benefit both old and new neighborhood residents? Plus: Why the younger generation may not care about gentrification battles.
