One Response to “WaPo Features Racial Eugenics Author’s Theory of NASCAR-Ignorant Elites”
Another “expert” on “The Bell Curve” who never actually READ the book. What Murray and Herrnstein actually said was that in a society that requires an average IQ to succeed, those with higher IQs will GENERALLY (not “always) enjoy advantages that those with below average IQs GENERALLY (not “always”) will not.
That’s hardly “racist” as it applies across the board. That’s hardly rocket science and it’s definitely not “pseudo-science.”
Furthermore, they also noted that as more and more mid-level blue- and white-collar jobs went overseas, the US would see a widening stratification of those with higher and lower IQs, the opposite legs of the “bell curve,” regardless of race.
The number of opportunities for people of average intelligence are diminishing every day. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. Again, please explain the “racism” in that observation?
If the writer acknowledges the age-old reality that rich people marry other rich people, why exactly is it “promoting highbrow racial eugenics” when Murray says the exact same thing?
As for the Southern Poverty Law Center, the litany of “tools” they accuse the AEI of using come directly out of the SPLC’s own toolbox. Few “non-profits” have mastered the black arts of demonization and scare-mongering more completely than the SPLC, which is why its bloated Endowment Fund now bulges with nearly $190 MILLION tax-free donor dollars.
The most ironic (read: “hypocritical”) thing about the Southern Poverty Law Center is that NOT ONE of its top ten, highest paid executives is a minority.
In fact, according to the SPLC’s hometown newspaper, the Montgomery Advertiser, despite being located LITERALLY in the back yard of Dr. Martin Luther King’s home church, the SPLC has NEVER hired a person of color to a highly paid position of power.
