There are innate race differences in intelligence: a flyer
May 27th, 2011 by Unamused
I have previously noted that should you choose the path of compassionate reactionism and take this conversation off the Internet, it might help to have a few relevant fact sheets (like, say, “Black people are more criminal than white people”) written by someone else, on whom the liberal rage and malice and cries of racism can be dumped, i.e. me.
To that end, I have prepared a second flyer, entitled “There Are Innate Race Differences in Intelligence.” I had help from Chuck at Occidentalist, but any outrageous errors or unsubstantiated opinions are all mine. It is available as a PDF here and as a JPEG below (click for the full-size image). Links to my sources (or equivalent) appear below.
I encourage you to share this flyer with anyone, anywhere. I hope you find it useful. Let me know if you find any mistakes, or if you would prefer a version with minor modifications of your choosing, such as a less outrageous title.
The statement “Mainstream Science on Intelligence” is available here.
Linda Gottfredson has plenty of papers on the general mental ability factor g. Schmidt and Hunter’s 2004 article “General Mental Ability in the World of Work: Occupational Attainment and Job Performance” is available for purchase here; Chuck sent me a copy (available on request).
The IQ gap (and the 80 percent heritability statistic for adults) are widely known; you can start with the American Renaissance guide. Find “Human Biological Variation” at your local library or college campus.
Roth et al.’s (in)famous 2001 meta-study “Ethnic Group Differences in Cognitive Ability and Educational Setting” is available in PDF form here. You can read about the Kansas City desegregation experiment here (the term “epic fail” springs to mind).
Here is the source of Steven Pinker’s quotation. His “dangerous idea” (answer to the 2006 annual Edge question) is that “groups of people may differ genetically in their average talents and temperaments.”
Chuck at Occidentalist can tell you all about race, income, and SAT scores.
The Rushton and Jensen article “Wanted: More Race Realism, Less Moralistic Fallacy” (2005) is available in PDF form here. The paper “Genetic Structure, Self-Identified Race/Ethnicity, and Confounding in Case-Control Association Studies” in the American Journal of Human Genetics, available here, shows a 99.86 percent success rate matching self-reported race to genetic clusters. I wrote about the failure of studies claiming the gap is environmental without controlling for genes in my post “Income and IQ.”
Jared Taylor briefly discusses regression to the mean, in the context of Jensen’s research, in the September 1998 issue of American Renaissance.
You can read about the famous Minnesota Transracial Adoption Study on Wikipedia, for instance.
Here is Jensen (1994) talking about 1 in 4 Blacks having an IQ less than 75. Gottfredson’s “g: Highly General and Highly Practical” (2002) is available here. American Renaissance profiles Michael Levin in their October 1997 issue.
