A taboo conversation with Wilfred Reilly

Transcript

No transcript...

Wilfred Reilly is an associate professor of political science at Kentucky State University who is known for fighting dogma with data.

His 2019 book Hate Crime Hoax: How the Left is Selling a Fake Race War, looked at a dataset of 409 allegedly false hate crimes and found that a substantial percentage are hoaxes, such as the Jussie Smollett case.

His 2020 book Taboo: 10 Facts [You Can’t Talk About] reviews facts about race, gender, and class that have become taboo in American society.

His upcoming book Lies My Liberal Teacher Told Me is set to be released in June.

In this conversation, we discuss his mother’s influence on his thinking, what it means to have an honest conversation about race, whether diversity is always better, hate crime hoaxes, taboo facts about race and gender, the color-blind approach to race, race and IQ, his unfiltered frankness on social media, and much more.
