Yes Virgina, There are Racial Differences in Intelligence

Santa Claus isn't real; but, dear Virginia, racial differences in intelligence are real
All of modern American life is predicated on one rule: All Men are Created Equal (AMCE). There's a caveat to this rule: wherever and whenever white people come to dominate a certain profession or set the standard for academic achievement, only "white privilege" or "racism" can be involved, an insidious ally in giving whitey a leg up over the competition.

So what happens when a state like, say, Florida decides to implement new racially-based education goals [The Hard Bigotry of Great Expectations, SBPDL]? Wouldn't this be a breach of contract in the AMCE guidelines that govern all of American life?

Well, it's not just Florida... [Firestorm Erupts Over Virginia's Education Goals, NPR, 11-12-12]:
As part of Virginia's waiver to opt out of mandates set out in the No Child Left Behind law, the state has created a controversial new set of education goals that are higher for white and Asian kids than for blacks, Latinos and students with disabilities.
Virginia Democratic state Sen. Donald McEachin first read about the state's new performance goals for schoolchildren in a newspaper editorial.
"And I was shocked to find that the state board of education [was] putting in place permanent disparities between different subgroups — Asians at the top, African-Americans at the bottom," says McEachin.

Here's what the Virginia state board of education actually did. It looked at students' test scores in reading and math and then proposed new passing rates. In math it set an acceptable passing rate at 82 percent for Asian students, 68 percent for whites, 52 percent for Latinos, 45 percent for blacks and 33 percent for kids with disabilities.
Alarmed by these numbers, McEachin and members of the Legislature's black caucus denounced the new policy as a "backwards-looking scheme."
"If we don't demand the best of our children, we won't receive the best," says McEachin.
At a meeting of the state board of education in late September, Patricia Wright, Virginia's superintendent of public instruction, defended the new policy.
"Rest assured, all of us hold all students to the same academic standards, but when it comes to measuring progress, we have to consider that students start at different points," Wright said.
In a phone interview with NPR, Wright explained that Virginia's expectation is that all students, regardless of race or ethnicity, will correctly answer the same number of questions to pass the state tests.

But the reality is that black and Latino children generally don't do as well as white and Asian children, and that gap, says Wright, is what the new policy is meant to address by setting more modest goals for struggling minority children and giving them more time to catch up.
"The concept here is that if indeed within six years we can close the achievement gap between the lowest- and highest-performing schools — at least cut it in half — that would be acceptable progress," says Wright.
At least one board member responded indignantly to accusations that the new policy harkens back to the era of segregation and Jim Crow. "We're not trying to go back to Jim Crow. What does that make us, Uncle Toms?" said Winsome Sears, one of three black board members at a meeting last month.
"So why do we have these different subgroups? Because we're starting with black children where they are. We can't start them at the 82 percentile because they're not there. The Asian students are there. And so the real question is why aren't black students starting at the 82 percentile? Why? Why are they not there?" Sears said.
That's the problem the board wants to solve, Sears said. Virginia devised the new policy after receiving a waiver from the U.S. Department of Education. Thirty-three states have received such waivers freeing them from what they call the unrealistic goal of the No Child Left Behind law — that all children perform at grade level by 2014.
But what Virginia has really done, critics argue, is institutionalize lower expectations for minority and disabled kids.

"Virginia has done something very, very wrong," says Amy Wilkins, with the Education Trust, a research group that advocates for closing the achievement gap.
"What Virginia said is, black kids in our state should achieve not at grade level but at the highest level that black kids have achieved in the past. That's not a forward-looking goal," Wilkins says. "That is not a goal that's going to ensure that black kids catch up with white kids or Latinos catch up with white kids or poor kids catch up with rich kids."
Wright disagrees but would not elaborate.
"Well, I really can't comment on Ed Trust's statement," says Wright.
"Institutional racism" can only be blamed for the "lower expectations" for minority and disabled kids in Virginia. Incredibly, the bar that black kids must reach for acceptable passing of the math portion shows a -23 point difference between what a white student must get to pass; a -37 point difference between what an Asian student must get to pass; and only a +12 point difference between what a student who is "cognitively challenged" (mentally handicapped) must score to pass.

There's not much more to add to this, save this article [Fairfax Success Masks Gap for Black Students, Washington Post, 4-14- 2006]:
Black students in Fairfax County are consistently scoring lower on state standardized tests than African American children in Richmond, Norfolk and other comparatively poor Virginia districts, surprising Fairfax educators and forcing one of the nation's wealthiest school systems to acknowledge shortcomings that have been masked by its overall success.
Even within Fairfax schools, black elementary school students are outperformed on reading and math tests by whites and some other students, including Hispanics, poor children and immigrants learning English.
The statewide disparity occurs among all age groups except the middle-school grades, but it is most pronounced at the elementary level, according to Virginia Department of Education data analyzed by The Washington Post. Black third-graders in Fairfax ranked 91st among more than 125 Virginia districts in reading and 69th in math in tests taken last year. Fifth-graders ranked 40th in reading and 71st in math.
"Something is broken with the way we teach a segment of the population," said John Johnson, education chairman for the Fairfax County NAACP and the father of two students in county schools. "Despite all the things we have at our disposal, our children are being outperformed by people like us -- or people with fewer resources."
In light of the academic cheating that has been documented across the nation in majority black districts (run by black administrators, like the Atlanta Public Schools system), perhaps it is the scores of the black students in Fairfax that were correct; those scores in almost all-black Richmond Public Schools were manufactured for racially correct results?

This is not one iota different than Afirmative Action. In fact, kids who have learned nothing are passed along already, so what's the fuss? The fuss is that schools will lose their unconstitutional federal pork with the NCLB act. They just tripped on the roots of one of the trees they planted.

America only has 50 years or less to correct itself. Unfortunately, we wont. Teach your children that there are differences between not only cultures, but races also. Teach them and allow them an escape route. I don't teach my children to be loyal to the USA, that will only impede them or make them slaves to the leaches.

And the same percentages should apply to the work force. But they will not. Because even with affirmative action, and every law designed to place the American Negro on a level surface with the other races has failed miserably. And just as they have not been able to capitalize with all these "cheater" rules. This will prove what every other race already knows with out a doubt.

More money is spent on Black students than White students in every region of the country. They are outperformed by people with fewer resources, who don't always have breakfast and lunch, because those people have an average IQ of 100 instead of an average IQ of 85.

Affirmative Action now extends to public school kids, and we're supposed to act surprised. I doubt that the people in the stories Paul cited are really bothered that "select groups" have had standards lowered for them; more like they're unhappy that it's being said aloud that they've had standards lowered for them.

As part of Virginia's waiver to opt out of mandates set out in the No Child Left Behind law, the state has created a controversial new set of education goals that are higher for white and Asian kids than for blacks, Latinos and students with disabilities.

Virginia is, in effect, declaring that Blacks and Latinos are equal in ability to "students with disabilities". I'd dearly like to see one of the DWLs involved with this academic dog's breakfast try and give the foregoing explanation to some of their pet Black and Latino honahz stoonts. The violent response elicited by de facto declaring them as "disabled" would be hilarious to watch.

In math it set an acceptable passing rate at 82 percent for Asian students, 68 percent for whites, 52 percent for Latinos, 45 percent for blacks and 33 percent for kids with disabilities.

How does this sort of flagrant anti-White (and, in this case, anti-Asian) racism manage to fly under radar? Why isn't the ACLU screaming bloody murder? Oh, I forgot, it's Whites (and Asians) that are being ground under the boot heel of oppression. Nothing to see folks, move along now.

"If we don't demand the best of our children, we won't receive the best," says McEachin.

Which sounds entirely logical until you consider exactly where McEachin thinks support for that "best" among Blacks should come from.

"The concept here is that if indeed within six years we can close the achievement gap between the lowest- and highest-performing schools — at least cut it in half — that would be acceptable progress," says Wright.

Stuff that "achievement gap" bullshit straight up your rectal gap, Wright. You've had fifty years and trillions of dollars to close that gap, now why don't you just close your effing pie gap?

At least one board member responded indignantly to accusations that the new policy harkens back to the era of segregation and Jim Crow. "We're not trying to go back to Jim Crow. What does that make us, Uncle Toms?"

That's exactly what this is; a return to Jim Crow. This time it's finally the Liberal version. As in, the vicious soft racism of lowered expectations. In this technological society, there is no better way of keeping the Black man down than by socially promoting underachieving minority students.

Recently, Albertosaurus has devoted a lot of electrons to emphasizing just how obsolete Black drop outs are becoming. Too bad these Virginian administrators don't have a stinking clue; as in not being able to find their ass in a Turkish prison with both hands and a flashlight.

Wright disagrees but would not elaborate.

That's because he ran out of smoke and mirrors.

Even within Fairfax schools, black elementary school students are outperformed on reading and math tests by whites and some other students, including Hispanics, poor children and immigrants learning English.

Here's a hint: Throwing money at Black scholastic under-performance is a futile gesture. Let me know when the parents start taking their children's grades seriously. Until then, stop wasting everybody's time.

People have to understand that in a lot of cases these poor scores of negro students are a result of poverty and hunger. If a negro child comes to school and he or she is hungry, how can they concentrate on what the teacher is saying?

Let's all pitch in and get these kids fed in the morning. Give them bacon and eggs, some toast and fruit, that kind of thing.

Once we do this and get all these kids well fed, then you're going to see some spectacular results from these young negro scholars.

Seriously.

Sub-Saharan Africans and their descendants missed out on the most important school of all, the school of cold weather evolution.
There was no need to weed out people who were stupid, lazy, wasteful, inarticulate, uncivil, etc. in order to survive; therefore, we have the bottom heavy headed people who were left behind in the tropical evergreen elementary school of the human species.

I got my first understanding of the racial reality of blacks at Deer Park elementary school in Newport News, Virginia in the early 1970's.
Besides the terrible body odor, I noticed that the majority of black kids heads were small above eye level. Many of the darkest blacks had tiny foreheads. The propaganda that race was only skin deep was obviously b.s.

Black mental inferiority - not just intelligence - is intractable and nothing short of some wild science fictional genetic engineering is going to make up for thousands of millenniums of missed cold weather genetic schooling.

By the way, for an entertaining dose of ahead-of-its-time racial realism I recommend "Mugger Blood" by Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir.
It's Destroyer #30 in the highly regarded men's action series and is available from Amazon for 0.99 and there's a free sample available in which Murphy explains why his previous racial liberalism got crushed by racial reality.
The book has a ton of black humor along with the usual extreme violence.

How's that post-Brown vs Board of Education school integration working?

What were black literacy rates, math scores, graduation numbers, etc., like during segregation compared to today? This is no mean question. Today's schools appear to be in the midst of an epic fail.

One of the arguments for segregation was that blacks had different learning curves from whites. There's an article on this at:

http://www.vdare.com/articles/brown-vs-board-govt-vs-people-the-curious-course-of-the-desegregation-wars

One thing you might find interesting is that the arguments for segregated education were based on scientific studies; those for de-segregation based on emotion and ideology. Granted, the segregationist science may not have been valid, but it was not some irrational color-of-skin issue which segregated the schools.

Look at the state of school discipline pre-Brown and post-. You will find posted about the Internet photos of black schoolchildren in those "dark" days of segregation: they appear to be nicely dressed and well groomed, and their schools lacked the metal detectors and security guards which seem to be prerequisites for quality education these integrated days.

I don't want to imply that there was some halcyon era of education way back when. Certainly they had their Blackboard Jungles. But doesn't anyone in the Department of Education or NEA ever spend some time thinking about the results of 58 years of educational reform?

"Parents" (plur.)? Given the black illegitimacy rate, would it not be more likely "parent" (sing.)? Or some sort of group thing, given high black female hypergamy and children raised by grandparents? What impact does this have on black educational culture, PTA participation, homework completion, truancy, and the discipline of recalcitrants?

(Hint: not good!)

I happened to be reading "Gang Leader for a Day" and one of the perks of being a gang honcho described therein is a harem of nubile females producing many offspring. Gotta get that gangsta DNA into the future! Still, Murphy Brown would tell us that his family is equal to the Ozzie & Harriet model. Yet nowhere in the book do we see our gang leader going to PTA meetings. And you wonder what would happen if any of his children were to be called to the principal's office.

It's another example DWL synergy: they promote the destruction of the traditional family via the welfare state, removal of religion from the public square, and other rackets; then scratch their collective DWL noggins when the inevitable chickens come home to roost. If DWL policies made any sense, then America's inner cities would be exemplars of progress and enlightenment.

It's a measure of the ideological delusion dominating DWL that they refuse to take responsibility for, much less acknowledge, the results of their own handicraft.

As they used to say in the 1960s, "Bad trip, man!"

One would never expect a Chihuahua to be a capable dog pulling a sled in the Iditarod. A Caribou would never be expected to make an excellent pack animal for crossing the Sahara. Sea World isn't working on training Great White sharks to jump through hoops. Most people are smart enough to appreciate the fact that time and evolution have produced animals that are distinctly adapted for doing specific things, which leads to the loss of other abilities. Yet to point out to these people that there are distinct and definite differences between the different races of humans brings about screams of racism and comparison to the German guy with the funny mustache. Blacks will never, in our lifetimes, be intellectually equal to Whites or Asians. Their gene pool, for centuries, has placed an emphasis on physical prowesses and an increased fight-or-flight response that was needed for survival on the African plains. Modern culture has done nothing to change this.....the black community shows far more appreciation for an athlete or a rapper or even a common street-corner criminal than they do a Scientist, a Physician or an Explorer. THE BLACK COMMUNITY AS A WHOLE HAS NO DESIRE TO ADVANCE BEYOND THEIR CURRENT SITUATION AND THEREFORE HAS PUT NO EFFORT FORTH TO CHANGE WHAT MAKES THEM WHAT THEY ARE. The sooner more humans accept this fact and quit pretending that blacks are "just like us" the sooner this country can work towards finding a suitable use for the black population in this society.....until then they will simply continue to be the parasitic money-pit that they are as they pillage what is left of our country.

Do not steal my thoughts anymore sir, I find your mind-reading -most- offensive!

This is Jay's new paradigm because it places the most powerful element of human nature before any leftist engineered, socially constructed, bullshit the juggernaut of the left can come up with. Just as feminism attempts to deconstruct the very fabric of our DNA as man and women with ~50 years of radical indoctrination and infiltration, they too, are unaware of the most powerful weapon we possess. Genetics and time. Only a fucking libtard would truly think you can erase 50,000 YEARS of human evolution in 50 years of propaganda. So too, will this be the weapon that undermines Marxist liberalism.

You can conscripts Whites into the press-gang of redistribution of wealth in the cities, and the normal climates of which a large part of the USA resides all day long. But, true cold weather, is something that only the strongest of genetics can endure. Even our good friend Adolf attempted to test Teutonic blood against millenia of Slavic adaptation to the elements and he paid the ultimate price.

If there are any northerners here particularly from the Dakotas or that region there is a saying I really love "20 below keeps the riff raff out". A cute folksy saying with a kernel of truth that stretches back over 10,000 years.

Brown people have NO idea how to prosper and survive in areas that are truly "white". Climatologically white, foodstuffs white, landscape white, and culturally white (read: Nordic).

They can barely survive in temperate climates without massive gub'mint assistance and gibsmedats. This is the reason I have no interest in Texas. It is FAR too hospitable to brown hordes many of whom have already colonized it in numbers in the millions. Yes, the place is about the size of many European countries with vast natural resources, but, to what end?

To fight a never-ending territorial war as you push the browns back to Mexico whilst they outbreed you 5:1 and push in again? Fuck that...

Give me Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota all day long. 95% indigenous white populations going back a century. -Extremely- 'awake' populations with nary a DWL anywhere to be found.

If I stay in the States, my ultimate journey will take me to these places. Only fools attempt to wage war, political, economic, or physical, behind enemy lines. You establish an AO that is 100% your own and push out from there. If the worst case scenario transpires and the militarized Fed Leviathan strikes out against "domestic terrorists" (read; Patriots) they will be fighting in conditions that are the worst imaginable. There is a reason that most major incursions in history skipped sub-artic areas. Because your average soldier, much less a 75IQ simian beast, is wholly unfit to not only survive there, but more particularly to even attempt to wage war.

Bet the winning horse...

Even though we are all "equal" the "White" method of teaching (instruction, homework, tests) doesn't seem to work with the africans. Thankfully that noted titan of academia, the GZA, co-founder and member of Wu-Tang Clan has found the answer. The answer is to utilize hip-hop to teach science in New York city public schools. The Wu-Tang Clan includes such Nobel Laureates as : Ghostface Killah, Masta Killa, and the late great luminary Ol' Dirty Bastard.

Enter The Wu-Tang To Teach High School Science

"The process is simple, Emdin said. After learning the material, students will have to create rap songs relaying the material back to the teacher. This can be done individually or in groups known as cyphers, where people stand in a circle and take turns rapping.

“A hip-hop cypher is the perfect pedagogical moment, where someone’s at the helm of a conversation, and then one person stops and another picks up,” Emdin said in an interview with The New York Times. “There’s equal turns at talking. When somebody has a great line, the whole audience makes a ‘whoo,’ which is positive reinforcement. However, this isn’t a place for nursery school rhymes. According to Emdin, GZA says “the rhymes can’t be corny or wack.”

You just can't make this stuff up! 'lectrons best be keepin it real y'all cuz i'm about to form a covalent bond an' shit.

Steadman, I know exactly how you feel. For those of us born with bad eyesight and thus without the privilege of driving, we have to live in the inner city. (Even small towns with transportation aren't good enough; if 90% of the people around you have cars, everything will be designed around cars and you'll be treated as an outcast if you don't have one)

Did you know that only one third of the jobs in the US are accessible through transit?

If Afro-Americans, or women, or gays, or any of the left's darlings, were banned from 70% of the jobs in America we'd never hear the end of it.

And what the DWLs refuse to notice is that a white person forced to live in the inner city is basically forced to be a minority wherever he or she lives, but has to move to the back of the line for jobs and scholarships because in general they're a majority.

It's no fun being a discriminated-against minority, but that goes double when The Left decides that you're in the Oppressors column regardless of reality.

Alert! Dialog on Race!

Only the ignorant can think that white privilege doesn't exist.

White privilege is a good thing. White-run countries such as Rhodesia, apartheid era South Africa, or the USA prior to the 1960s produced vastly superior civilizations.

How superior? Despite all the blathering of "racism," millions of blacks migrated into apartheid South Africa. Why? Because white privilege produces jobs, public order and higher standards of health for all.

Care to tell me what life is like in black privilege Zimbabwe or Detroit?


The wealth in this country came off the backs of black people.

Uhm, no. The north's wealth came from industry and shipping, which had little to do with blacks. Western American wealth came from mineral resources and agribusiness, largely white enterprises. The south's plantation economy was destroyed by the Civil War. It's later wealth came from white investment in forward looking business.

Cities such as Detroit, which brought in large amounts of black labor, ended up disintegrating.

But here's a question for ERachelle: if black labor is so critical in generating wealth, then why do black majority cities such as Detroit fall apart so quickly? Why can't you mobilize all that black work to build factories, or simply keep houses from falling apart?

Come to think of it, why do black majority countries tend to end up at the bottom of the poverty chain? Why can't all that black labor produce wealth in Haiti or Congo or wherever?

How much of this has to do with genetic factors such as:
* median IQ?
* impulse control?
* future time orientation?


I see so many people post on here anonymous; is that because you don't want people to see how racist you are?

What's wrong with being "racist?"

Californian said...

This terrible delusion that America is wealthy because of blacks.

It's part of a black mythology, encouraged by DWL agitprop. The belief that in some magic era black people were creating all this wealth which whites then stole from them. The mythology justifies any number of race hustles to get that wealth back and bring low the eeeeeevil whites.

A simple test of reality shatters the myth (at least for rational people): if black labor created wealth in the past, then why has black labor failed to create similar wealth in the present? Why can't black labor -- under conditions of freedom -- build a Detroit which exceeds in wealth and civic order that of Henry Ford's era? Or a Zimbabwe which exceeds that of Rhodesia? Or (fill in the blanks)?

The answer is that blacks did not create this wealth. It was white leadership, white vision, white planning and white science which did it. Remove the whites, and you remove that leadership, vision, planning and science. Ergo, civilizations revert to their pre-white conditions.

As SBPDL would put it: they become "Detroited."

I don't think it's just a matter of IQ. IQ doesn't necessarily have much to do with self-discipline, honesty, or other moral qualities required to build a sustainable community. There are and have been immigrant groups who aren't exactly known for being rocket scientists, if you'll pardon the expression, like the Hmong and Laotions, who generally work their asses off and stay out of trouble, compared to certain other groups.

There is something seriously, profoundly wrong with the black community, and it isn't just an intelligence deficit.

Mr. Rational said...

ERachelleOnly the ignorant can think that white privilege doesn't exist.

It doesn't.  What you are talking about is White virtue.  Whites are intelligent, hard-working, peaceful and cooperative.  These traits allow the production of the fruits of White societies.

The wealth in this country came off the backs of black people.

Strange, then, that Africa was a poverty-ridden pesthole while Europe created the Renaissance, Enlightenment and Industrial revolution... essentially without any Black people.  The industrial North of the USA... also essentially without Black people until the Great Migration.

Who wouldn't come from wealth in power if you didn't have to tend your own crops or pay for any labor even though you were waited on hand and foot. Shoot, America is only as wealth as it has been because of slavery.

Yet the African countries where slavery is practiced to this day... poverty-ridden pestholes.  If slavery was the basis of wealth, why aren't they all rich?

You are a very good case study supporting the argument that Black people can use fancy words, but have a very, very hard time actually thinking.

Not expecting much is a CLEAR sign of ACME!

You don't even know what "acme" means.  You've largely mastered grammatical English, but at the bottom of it all you're stupid.  The world makes no sense, you don't even try to understand the dictionary meanings of words, you cannot connect facts which obviously relate... you go through life in a stupor.  You are stupid.

To anyone who loves America this development is very good news indeed. It marks to beginning of some public recognition that certain races do better in school and others do worse. Ten years ago this sort of fact would have been suppressed.

Education and the dream of education is the principal battlefield in the war of ideas about race. Whenever a politician or either party is confronted with horrors of black behavior he will mutter some nostrums about education. The search for 'quality education' like the search for 'Superman' is the escape hatch for politicians who don't want to confront racial realities. If we want things to turn around we must smash those education myths.

Currently there are ads running on TV that say that if you want to improve public education the public should invest in better teachers. I believe this ad is run by one of the teacher's unions. It is pure bunk.

Why would anyone think we need better teachers? Why would anyone think our schools are bad? There isn't a whole lot to education as an academic discipline. It's not like consumer electronics where everything changes every couple years. In nineteenth century America on the empty plains they still managed to teach kids to read in that Little Red School House.

How did we manage to lose the capacity to teach children? Its such a simple job. Where did this education crisis come from?

The answer is simply school integration and the assumption that schools could and should now make black kids as smart as whites. Steve Sailer has an analysis of international standardized tests which shows that American kids of European ancestry score better comparable European kids. Likewise our Japanese, Chinese, and Korean kids do better than kids from Japan, China and Korea. Even our black African kids do better in American schools than do the black kids in Africa. Our schools are doing just fine - when you control for the race of the student.

Our public insistence that the problem is with our school teachers is a very dangerous and expensive delusion. Politicians don't like to face the reality that black kids will never do as well in schools of any kind as whites and East Asians. This wouldn't matter except that the job market is tilting evermore surely towards better educated employees.

We do have an education crisis - black kids can't be educated (or at least not up to modern standards). That's why I find Florida's varying education goals by race to such a positive development.

Obviously IQ makes a difference, but it's hard to believe that a mere 15% deficit is responsible for the massive disparities in white vs. black outcomes. There must be other factors in the black makeup in addition to lower intelligence that cause them to underperform so drastically in virtually every measure of socioeconomic sustainability: honesty, ability to save, ability to postpone gratification, illegitimacy, health, hygiene, child mortality, respect for education, ability to learn from negative experiences (even cats and dogs seem better at this at blacks - it only takes one or two thwacks with a rolled-up newspaper to keep your average cat off the table for life), proper child nurturing, avoidance of antisocial behavior, and so on and so on.

Speaking of white cooperativeness, did you ever read that article by the white man who was trapped in the Superdome after Katrina for a few days? He saw that the whites tended to cooperate with each other, pool resources, and help and protect each other the best they could. At the same time, he saw that blacks reverted to the law of the jungle, with the young and the strong killing, raping, and robbing those who were weaker than them, mainly their own black brothers and sisters. For at least three days of pure hell, the thin veneer of societal restraints and politically correct propaganda evaporated. The Alpha blacks were even shooting at the helicopters and attacking National Guard trucks of the rescuers: they didn't want order to be restored, with the resulting restrictions this would place on their abilty to continue looting and victimizing the weak of their own community. Even the black cops turned into lawless looters and renegades.

The national media downplayed or ignored most of the worst atrocities perpetrated by the black community, but you can stii find isolated sources here and there that tell the truth about what happened.

I'll repeat what I have been told by Africans, both black and white: black Africans do not believe in the kind of individual rights/individual responsibilities as do white people. Their mindset is that of the collective: the village, the clan, the larger ethnicity. Anything they do is for the collective, and any offense against any member of the collective is an offense against all.

This may be cultural, or it may be genetic, or a combination. If true, it means that there is going to be a real disconnect when they try to function in a white society. Just look at how many of the pathologies which are beaten to death on SBPDL can be seen as a function of this mindset: the mindless violent crime; the mass production of illegitimate children; the education fails; the race hustling; the wrecking of cities. It's all evidence of mass disregard for individual responsibilities, not to mention the rights of others.

I mean, seriously, how do blacks get their illegitimacy rates up to over 70%? Or work it so they commit over half the murders in the USA? Or "detroit" a mighty city within a couple measly decades? Well, it can happen when nobody wants to take responsibility for their actions.

This is also why we have to look more closely at the endless black chanting of "racism." An initial interpretation is that this is just agitprop designed to hustle whites. But what if there is a deeper issue? What if a sizable chunk of the demographic literally can not understand its own responsibility for the current state of black America (or the black Caribbean or black Africa)? What if they can not make the connection that when you have high rates of violent crime and welfare dependency, and you ethnically cleanse the productive sector out of a city, you end up living in ruins?

The chant of "racism" may just be a result of a completely different mindset at work, one which believes that white people have some kind of magic which can raise great cities from the earth. And that if the tribe chants it enough, then the magic will work again. Sounds bizarre, but it's not any more nutty than the magical thinking of BRA.

Perhaps the reason that blacks are so obsessed with slavery is that to a collective mind, what happened 400 years ago is literally still alive today. And if this is the mindset, then it also provides one explanation for the wrecking of cities such as Detroit: ultimately, such cities were built by white individuals with both vision and smarts. Those whites could imagine something great and then provide the leadership to build it. A collectivist people could never have such vision. Look at how the forced collectivism of communism wrecked so many countries in the 20th century. Now consider what happens when collectivism is not just political policy but the way in which a majority demographic actually sees the world.

White people today mainly seem to think that everyone has the same mindset that they do. DWLs believe everyone is tabula rasa. Mainstream conservatives believe that every black secretly longs to be a country club Republican. And they address their politics accordingly--with predictably disastrous results.

But! What if there were some way for white people to get out of their own "skulls" and into those of blacks, and see things through black eyes--who knows what the world would look like? I keep thinking of the scenes in the movie "Predator" where the camera shows the jungle from the point of view of the alien hunter. You see things as a kaleidoscope of infrared colors, and hear voices as mocking echoes.

Something to think about in the continuing chaos...

I felt had to bring to your attention this series of seven videos produced by Norwegian tv, where several cultural marxist academics are virtually being stripped naked in front of a camera. These videos have great educational value.

The programmes have been uploaded to YouTube and have English subtitles.

The presenter is a well known Norwegian comedian; Harald Eia, which explains the short introduction to each video, where people are filmed suspicially grinning, laughing, and fleeing Harald's camera and questions, thinking they are being hoaxed by the comedian.

The main point of the programs is the exposure of the dominating and popular "experts" and academics who think everything, including sexual identity and roles is something which is a result of indoctrination and environment, completely discarding all the solid evidence there is for the dominationg role of genetics.

The whole thing is within the limits of political correctness, easyly digestable and humorous, but verry effective I think.

Here are the titles / subjects of each programme:

Brainwash (1/7) – The Gender Equality Paradox
Brainwash (2/7) – The Parental Effect
Brainwash (3/7) – GayStraight
Brainwash (4/7) – Violence
Brainwash (5/7) – Sex
Brainwash (6/7) – Race
Brainwash (7/7) – Nature or Nurture

To make things easy, I have just published all seven videos on my blog here (scroll past the Danish introduction and the first video on the page):

question if I may said...

We don't think we are part of the mastermind club, we just saying there is a genetic correlation to intelligence, orientals have higher IQ than europeans, who have higher IQ than africans, that is all we stating

IQ leads to societies expressing itself, hence the reason africa and haiti being the way it is, and hence the reason japan and south korea being what they are.

Its such a shame that a smart black guy like yourself has to be stuck with such bitterness, you could actually aid people like erachelle, look at obama, president and he still hates what he is, is it because your very own kind, discriminate against you because you have a higher IQ than them.

You'll never forget you black I'm afraid, you have to constantly remind yourself, don't you get tired? So sad that wealthy intellectual black people have to be feral not physically but in other ways.But that's genetics for you.

Why does an educated black person have to remind everyone how educated they are, have to use english that shows all how intellectual they are, that seems to be a typical black genetic trait.

Its so sad really, you build your own stereo types, when I hear a black person that doesn't speak in ebonics, you know they going to have attitude, not the run of the mill ghetto attitude, but attitude none the less.

You have no need to prove anything to anyone.

If a black becomes a classic musician, he has to start africanising classic music, why? If a black person becomes a geologist, he has to start devising eurocentic theories of why north on a world map is at the top and south at the bottom.

Its so tiresome, when a japanese person becomes a classic violinist or opera singer, you don't see them trying to japanesise classical music.

Good point.

Consider the question posed on almost a daily basis at SBPDL: "Can you name any black-majority city whose record is superior in its economy, education, public services, and civil order to an equivalent white city?"

And again, we must ask all DWLs, black advocates and people of good will: why have you not answered this question?

We'll make it easy for you. You do not have to stick to the USA. How about naming such cities in the Caribbean or sub-Saharan Africa? Or perhaps neighborhoods in European countries in which blacks have settled and become the dominant force?

As to why the concentration on Detroit: Detroit was once a symbol of American ingenuity and can-do spirit, as well as a center of industry, science and the arts. It meant something to people, once. As Detroit goes, so goes the nation.


There are dozens if not hundreds of small towns (over)run by blacks in the mid-west that are failed cities, cop cars with bullet holes, state take-over of corrupted towns, etc, yet we hear little about this through the magic 'grape vine' of the internet.

Obviously IQ makes a difference, but it's hard to believe that a mere 15% deficit is responsible for the massive disparities in white vs. black outcomes.

A week or so ago I indulged myself with a rant about how everyone should learn some statistics. I present this comment from an Anonymous commenter as Exhibit 1.

Blacks are 15 IQ points below the white mean. That isn't 15 percent. In fact 15% of intelligence is an almost meaningless concept.

Blacks are a full standard deviation below whites on all such tests. IQ tests happen to have a mean of 100 and an SD of 15. A very similar SAT test has a mean of 500 and an SD of 100. The Wonderlic seems to have a mean of 21 and an SD of 7. In testing you are told to transform your raw scores into what are called "standard scores". The recommnded standard score distribution has a mean of 50 and an SD of 10.

So the black deficit on tests of intellectual capacity would be 15, 100, 7, or 10 depending on which style of test you were using. Most knowledgeable psychometricians like the mysterious La Griffe du Lion prefer to simply speak in terms of standard deviations or z-scores.

This is the reason I recommend speaking of brain sizes. Brain volumes form what is called an interval scale. IQs don't.

I'll probably write more about this here sooner or later. Don't be too upset. Lot's of famous people get the stats wrong. The famous Marxist paleontologist Steven Jay Gould admitted in print that he was bad at the math but he still published a whole book on statistics (it was his worst book). Most of the concern over Global Warming comes from a stat "trick" invented by Michael Mann. Mann also admits in print that he's not very good at math. But if you want to be effective in the race debates, it behooves you to brush up on some basic stat.

In the meantime trust me, a full standard deviation for a whole population is a huge difference.

Re: Botswana. That was my post, not Californian. The big advantage is one tribe. Unlike the rest of Africa, they do not have to deal with constant tribal fighting. When they were threatened with immigration from Zimbabwe, they built an electrified fence. Odd - no protests from anyone. The British did a very good job of setting up civil institutions and the first President was also a prominent Chief, an undoubtedly intelligent person. The tribal rulers avoided all crazy socialist schemes the rest of Africa implemented. They are almost all Christians. It may simply be that this one tribe is placid and they have enough of an intelligent tribal aristocracy to guide them. The country has a sparse population - and that must help as well. One thing they absolutely have done is isolate themselves from the rest of Africa. As I said: electrified border fence. But credit where credit is due. They have a living standard on par with Turkey and are improving.

Anonymous said...

Two other points re the success of Botswana: they do have about 3% white African population and a large expat population and about a 1% Indinan population as well. Certainly together at least 5% of the population. But they are left alone and can make and take as much money as they earn. Foreign corporations can take out as much money as they like. No one hates the white population or foreign corporations or is trying to limit them. So they come to Botswana. There is a lesson in all this somewhere for Africa. The downside is AIDS, which is a massive problem.
