Author and political scientist Charles Murray spoke about American cultural values and economic disparity. He said that over the last half century, America had developed not only a new lower class but a new upper class. He said these developments were not linked to America’s evolving ethnic composition, but to the erosion of American exceptionalism. He described the evidence for these claims in terms of America’s non-Latino white population from 1960 to 2010. He also responded to questions from the audience.
“The State of White America” was the April 2011 Bradley Lecture. close
