Leading Conservative Non-Profits to Host Affirmative Action Debate at the University of Wisconsin-Madison
The Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI), the Arthur N. Rupe Foundation,
and Turning Point USA are teaming up to host a discussion between two
prominent black thinkers, Jason Riley of the Wall Street Journal and
Randall Kennedy of Harvard Law School.
In the wake of racially charged events, questions of race are more urgent
The debate, entitled “Resolved: Liberal Policies Make it Harder for Blacks
to Succeed,” takes its name from the subtitle of Jason Riley’s
controversial New York Times best-seller, Please Stop Helping Us, in which
Riley argues against government policies such as Affirmative Action that
are intended to help black Americans.
Members of the community can expect to learn from both of these renowned
Riley recently wrote a book entitled, “Please Stop Helping us! How Liberal
Policies Make it Harder for Blacks to Succeed.”
Dr. Kennedy, a highly accomplished academic who isn’t ashamed to say he
benefited from affirmative action himself, is challenging Riley’s claim.
The event will be cosponsored by The Intercollegiate Studies Institute, the
Arthur N. Rupe Foundation, and hosted by UW’s chapter of Turning Point USA.
The College Republicans will also attend. I would appreciate it if you
could spread the word in any way you can.
