BONUS #067 – “Mehrsa Baradaran, author of – The Color of Money: Black Banks and the Racial Wealth Gap.”

Jesse and Brittany invite Mehrsa Baradaran to discuss her latest book, “The Color of Money: Black Banks and the Racial Wealth Gap.” During the discussion, they cover the racial wealth gap and the historical causes and contributing factors including racism, credit policies, and housing segregation. Mehrsa is also an advocate for postal banking, which she discusses as vitally important for reaching out to the underbanked and providing them with necessary services that are not predatory or exclusionary. During this discussion, she also addresses the criticism she received from Coleman Hughes on Quillette and on Sam Harris’ podcast.
