PODCAST: Dr. Charles Murray on Facing Reality

American Enterprise Institute Hayek Emeritus Scholar Dr. Charles Murray joined the podcast to discuss his latest release, Facing Reality: Two Truths about Race in America. In the podcast, we talk about how group differences in IQ and rates of violent crime drive the outcome disparities between races in America, as opposed to the claims of American systemic racism. Other topics include the differences between big and small cities, the demography of popular conceptions of race in the American consciousness, and the threat affirmative action poses to the “American creed.”
