Heather Mac Donald on the Black Lives Matter Paradox & the ‘Poison’ of Identity Politics

“The only black lives that matter to the press [are] those handful that are taken by a cop,” says Manhattan Institute fellow Heather Mac Donald, author of “The War on Cops” and “The Diversity Delusion.”

In this episode, we discuss the rise in crime, the demoralization of police across the nation, and the “infection” of identity politics. Every institution and every meritocratic standard is being torn down, Mac Donald says, for having a disparate impact on blacks. It’s “a recipe for civilizational stasis and regression.”
