Roland Fryer: It’s Official, He’s a “Genius”

I first met href="http://www.economics.harvard.edu/faculty/fryer" target="_blank">Roland Fryer a decade ago. It didn’t take me long to figure out he was a genius. It took the folks at the MacArthur Foundation a little longer to come to that realization, but they finally got on board last week when href="http://www.macfound.org/site/c.lkLXJ8MQKrH/b.7730831/k.9839/Roland_Fryer.htm" target="_blank">they gave Roland one of their high-profile MacArthur “Genius” Awards.
Most of Roland’s research has been devoted to understanding the factors influencing Black economic progress. He’s worked on segregation, the sources of the Black-White test score gap, the reasons why Black longevity is less than that of Whites, and the Ku Klux Klan, among many other topics.
