Reparations: more reactions

by Walter Olson on May 31, 2014

The Ta-Nehisi Coates essay in the Atlantic arguing the case for racial reparations stirred quite a bit of discussion and here are three more reactions:

* John McWhorter, “The Case Against Racial Reparations” [The Daily Beast]

* Jonathan Blanks, “Why Aren’t There More Black Libertarians?” [Libertarianism.org]

* Richard Epstein on Coates’ “acute tunnel vision” and misreadings of individual rights [Hoover "Defining Ideas"]

Plus: not a reaction but an older piece, “How Far Back Should We Go? Why Restitution Should Be Small” [Tyler Cowen, 2002, PDF]
