    This is a pretty good discussion on race/violence between Sam Harris and Glenn Loury. I agree with Harris on many issues but I do find that he holds an irrational view on seemingly being able to derive morality from science (in this regards, I am more of a pragmatic moral relativist). Regardless, this is one of the better conversations that I've heard (not that I agree with everything here) and serves as a good lesson on how racial issues should be discussed. But I don't think this is what black lives matter people have in mind when they want an honest conversation about race.
