Brian Anderson: You've just written a very interesting and disturbing piece for City Journal, which we published last week where you noted that two major organ transplant institutes, the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network and the United Network for Organ Sharing, they're planning to change their criteria for determining who is going to receive a kidney transplant in order to favor black patients. Blacks make up a lower percentage of kidney transplant recipients than their proportion of the kidney dialysis patient population would suggest. Is, again, systemic racial bias to blame for this racial disparity among kidney transplant recipients? How are these new policies, if they are adopted, going to affect the, I don't know what the number is, 100,000 patients who are currently on the wait list for kidney transplants, because there's just not enough kidneys to go around?
