Heather Mac Donald – When Race Trumps Merit

Our guest this week is Heather Mac Donald, bestselling author and Thomas W. Smith fellow at the Manhattan Institute. This is a recording of a luncheon discussion on her new book “When Race Trumps Merit.” Heather argues that racial disparities at universities, executive suites, the medical and legal professions and other fields are due to the academic skills gap that causes the current lack of proportional representation. She believes that so long as alleged racism remains the main explanation for these racial disparities, we will tear down excellence and put lives, as well as civilizational achievement, at risk.
