Race and IQ

Race and IQ

I disagree with this article:

Several times lately on this blog we've noted the fact that a (relatively) higher IQ is a necessary if not sufficient condition to get to the top in a meritocratic, technocratic society. So while many who have commented on the contretemps have asserted that bringing up the issue of race and IQ serves no purpose and only publicly hurts feelings (of black people, mainly), they're wrong.

But, why can't we just not discuss this and let the cultural process of the smarter people getting ahead proceed? Because our opponents in this matter constantly blame white people for the failings of non-Asian minorities - strangely we never get credit for Asians' success, which we ought to if we're so damned powerful - and then they want whites to pony up for their alleged depredations.

Is it any wonder that some, mostly white, people want to keep bringing this issue up? Professional blacks like the wonderfully named Ta-Nehisi Coates do almost nothing but blame whites for everything wrong with their race, other than when they're demanding compensation for it.

Raising the race and IQ issue is, for whites, merely a matter of self-defense, and of the truth.

The last thing most white people should do is bring up the IQ issue. The instant you do, you get blamed for picking on the weaker baboon, which are those of lower IQ. Instead we should just break society down to where it used to be, which is by honest performance. If you do that, and get rid of all those anti-discrimination laws, you'll see a white America pretty quick and then the exodus of non-whites will begin. We know America is going to go nationalist like the rest of the world is, so this is a better, non-violent, non-genocidal solution.

Also, if you ever do bring it up, first make sure that the person with whom you are communicating understands statistical analysis.  Otherwise, they won't have the first fucking clue what you're talking about.

Sorry to be a Debbie downer, but one should remember that this might actually encourage immigration of the best and brightest to the US from other nations, depriving those nations of the people they need most.  It's kind of a double-edged sword scenario.

I thought it went without saying that preferably the vast majority of immigration would be stopped if we had such a government Conservationist envisions.

Well, a few of things:
1) Successful nations attract immigrants
2) Immigration into the US has begun to sink from it being torn down towards 3rd world status
3) The measures suggested would only have a short term consequence of limiting immigration

I think a long term solution to immigration problems will necessitate the end of viewing the US as a singular entity.  If you want to prevent immigration, you need something resembling a closed-borders system, which can only be approximated in areas of the US amiable towards such an idea.

Interesting observations. However, I think the solution is simpler than that. Do away with affirmative action, HUD, anti-discrimination legislation and other unconstitutional compulsions to hire minorities before others. Allow people to select who they want to hire, rent to, sell to, live around, and interact with. The situation will sort itself. As you hinted, when the gravy train in the USA ends, people will focus on their home countries instead and improve them. Population will also stop growing quite so radically. It's win-win for everyone except white liberals.

What about all the racially mixed people? They make up a very large amount of our population. Much more than the census tells, it would seem.
