RIP Michael Brooks

I had my differences with Michael Brooks, as I have with all Dirtbag Left-adjacent pundits, but he did a great service for those who oppose the race science bullshit of the IDW, Pinkerites and the racist Right with his discussion of Sam Harris's conversation with Ezra Klein, which I posted in May 2019 and am reposting here. His hatred for the Democratic Party aside, he was a really bright guy and he was only 36.

RIP Michael Brooks.

Pinkerite has mentioned this debate before in I Have a Nightmare: Steven Pinker, Quillette and the "biological reality of race" and Michael Brooks, sometime co-host with Sam Seder, offers some very worthwhile commentary. BONUS: he mentions The Pioneer Fund.
