Glenn Loury – professor of economics at Brown University and host of The Glenn Show – returns to the The Brendan O’Neill Show to discuss the US Supreme Court’s ban on affirmative action in education. Glenn and Brendan discuss how race-based admissions policies infantilise black America, demonise Asian Americans and promote racial stereotyping.
