KSU Professor Will Face Off in a Debate Challenge with White Nationalist Jared Taylor

Capital Living, April 19, 2016

Kentucky State University political science professor Dr. Wilfred Reilly will go head to head in a political debate with one of the nation’s best-known white nationalists Jared Taylor at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 21 at Bradford Hall.  The public is encouraged to attend this free event.

An expert in American and International ethnic group relations, Reilly holds a PhD from Southern Illinois University and a law degree from the University of Illinois College of Law. He is a recent presenter and reception chair at Midwest Political Science Association Conference and the author of Are the Browns Down? A Quantitative Examination of Why People Value Their Identity. Reilly believes that diversity and racial tolerance are good things.

Taylor will take the opposing view.

Taylor  is the author of the New York Times best-seller Paved with Good Intentions and the “cult classic”White Identity. Taylor calls himself a “race realist” who believes that America was at her best as an overwhelmingly white and Christian nation. A strong supporter of presidential candidate Donald Trump, Taylor is also the current head of the pro-white-pride American Renaissance Foundation.

Taylor issued a debate challenge to Dr. Reilly, which was accepted on the sole condition that the debate take place in Kentucky on a HBCU campus.
