Did you wonder why the furor arose against the 1992 publication of the Bell Curve, (916 pages)?

Bell Curve author Charles Murray pointed out to his critics that he and Richard Herrnstein could have made a much stronger case regarding the black-white IQ gap than they did, but they restricted their analysis to only the most mainstream science on the topic of intelligence, often regerred to as “g”.

In 1997 “Why Race Matters” by Michael Levin, 442 pages, is that much stronger case. Like Herrnstein and Murray, Levin also relies on mainstream literature regarding the black-white IQ gap, but expands on it, and he covers race differences other than IQ, e.g. time preference and impulse control. Michael Levin is a philosopher by training, but his knowledge of psychometrics, math, and genetics is impressive. Levin devotes the first third of the book presenting evidence that much of the black-white IQ gap is genetic in origin. He also astutely points out that the Liberal argument against intelligence itself amd therefore against the very idea that there is a gap between black and white people is fictitious, false and 100% environmental in origin relies on finding flaws in studies that indicate intelligence is caused by one’s genes. i.e., genetic causation. Their argument is that absence of evidence (for high black intelligence) is not evidence of absence. However, in some cases absence of evidence is evidence of absence. If for example, Santa Claus exists, it is very likely that someone would have spotted him by now. That no one has, thus, should be considered evidence that Santa Claus does not exist. Likewise, Levin states “evidence for the equal intelligence of the races would presumably exist were the races in fact equal, and be prominently cited by the many social scientists who passionately believe they are.” That no such evidence exists places the burden of proof on Liberals to make the case for racial equality. The case against racial equality presented by Levin is devastating to the Liberals ideas.

Rather than looking for ways to help people live together influential Liberals seem more determined than ever to freeze out the intelligent.
Levin discusses values, crime, aggressiveness, impulsiveness, lack of concern of the future, justice, affirmative action and how white people pay for the myriad welfare programs that do not benefit smart or white people but forces them to pay for the sins and shortcomings of others. That’s immoral but hey, ..no one said or promised it’s a moral world. .
Authur R. Jensen wrote: “The g Factor: The Science of Mental Ability” (664 pages) in 1998 which along with The Bell Curve and Why Race Matters roll up all argument against the idea of intelligence and it’s value to human flourishing.
Why Race Matters is a fascinating read that would be difficult to summarize briefly. Levin ends the book with a fictitious address by a future president of the United States acknowledging that after ~50 years of pretending otherwise, we must finally come to accept and deal with the reality of racial differences. If you enjoyed the Bell Curve, this book is also a must-read.

White movie fans don’t care that actors and actresses are “diverse” and in roles that just don’t make sense to them.  They don’t go to the movies. They just don’t watch them, or, at the very least they refuse to pay high ticket prices at the movies so they stay away.  Movie attendance tanked and will continue to shrink as long as diversity and multiculturalism dominate the movie casting instead of believable plots and accurate casting.

The big losers will be stupid white actresses like Frances McDormond who put herself out of a lot of future roles because she refused to work unless her contract had a “diversity clause” in it. By so doing she made it harder for white bitches like her to get jobs and easier for the large factious herd of non-whites to replace them. The movies are more diverse, less believable and less attended. Way to go, stupids. 

Taki Mag reports that back in 1999 Black, Asian, and Latino organizations agreed to cooperate to force the TV networks to diversify — or else. In January 2000, they lobbied Congress to regulate “inclusion” on TV the same way the government regulated children’s programming (at the time, the FCC mandated broadcasters provide three hours per week of educational children’s programming). The Coalition of 19 wanted the government to set a weekly quota of non-whites on TV.

It seemed as though there was no stopping this indivisible band of brothers. Or perhaps we should say bruthas, because by the end of the month, the NAACP had cut its own deal for black inclusion, leaving its brown and yellow comrades out in the cold. “No es bueno,” declared former U.S. representative Esteban Torres, the coalition’s lead Latino negotiator. “No es bueno indeed.”

In 2002 the coalition pretty much disbanded when the black representatives walked away after the Latino faction voted to bring  The Mexican Grocers Association in as a member, because the treatment of Mexican grocers is, of course, inextricably tied to issues of television diversity.

The Coalition of 19 failed because, in the end, each victim group was interested only in gains for its own “kind.” They really did hate each other.

In today’s inclusion-rider movement, there’s a new wrinkle. The leaders aren’t people like Esteban Torres and Kweisi Mfume, but preening white A-list actresses who claim to be disenfranchised. The fact that white women are leading the fight this time will not stop the black and Latino factions from, once again, selfishly guarding their own interests. But it will certainly give them a common enemy to fight before they turn on each other. A rude awakening is in store for the white actresses who are currently (if unknowingly) committing career suicide by backing inclusion riders. As Hollywood salivates over the massive success of Black Panther (which, it should be noted, beat the pantsuit off the female-driven Tomb Raider at the box office two weeks ago), white actresses might just find themselves dispossessed after all. HaHaHa!
