Ibram X. Kendi asserts that all humans share 99.9% of their DNA and that, because we are so alike, racial disparities in social and economic outcomes would not exist except for racism. But the 0.1% that we do not have in common must then account for all the wide variations of the human species we see around the world. Charles Murray asserts that based on evidence from intelligence tests there is a cognitive gap between the races that explains much of the differences in social and economic outcomes. In this podcast, the Edifice of Trust host, Victor Bolles examines the possibility that both Kendi and Murray might be wrong.
