Indeed, despite an inability to define "race" or "intelligence," such studies are one of the dominant intellectual strains in Western history. We forget this because its convient to believe that history begins with the Watts riots. But it's important to remember the particular tradition that Charles Murray and Jason Richwine are working in. A brief reminder seems in order.
And here we are with invoking the Hitler card to stifle uncomfortable science, right on time, which is what this thread was about to begin with: The reactive, fearful, hostile knee-jerk liberal response to science they don't like. My, what would happen to the faith of the people if it were leaked that the world isn't flat! O****!

Thank you for providing an illustration to prove tx's point on this here tidy thread.

Do us a favor and make sure to email the National Institutes of Health and tell them stop funding research that concludes there is an IQ gap or at least demand they don't come to unequal results. Don't forget there is also a pressing need to suffocate research into the field of race-based medicine. Regardless of that certain heart medicines help black people more than white people, it's best to give them the standard treatment and keep those death rates nice and elevated.

In the name of equality.
