Glenn Loury (Watson Institute for International and Public AffairsBrown University) and John McWhorter (Columbia University, Lexicon Valley, The Atlantic)

On The Glenn Show, Glenn and John consider what Cliven Bundy and Donald Sterling reveal about how America talks about race. Did their comments merely spark “useless outrage“? Glenn wishes that black leaders would embrace a larger class-based or international perspective, and longs for a modern revival of Martin Luther King’s 1968 Poor People’s Campaign. Next, they look back on John’s 2008 prediction that Obama’s presidency would improve race relations in America. What will the racial fallout be if Obama is viewed by history as a mediocre president?
