"The Return of Patriarchy"

VDARE.com

2/26/06

The genetic science is progressing so fast that we'll know soon enough¡ªperhaps two decades to be rock solid certain. We know which way the scientific wind is blowing right now, but even if we ignore that, wouldn't the prudent action be to wait a couple of decades, to restrict immigration and refrain from utopian foreign adventures, until the science is in?

"It's the End of the World as We Know It"

VDARE.com

1/15/06

What the DNA researchers are uncovering as they scrape away the blather of the Goulds and Diamonds is a world we already more or less know, the one we all live in every day. The human race has its flaws. But the truth about ourselves is not so horrible that we must be shielded from it by self-appointed sages who get rich fabricating falsehoods.

The Economist on Evolution

VDARE.com

1/1/06

Embarrassingly for The Economist, two days before Christmas came a landmark paper by Robert Moyzis, Eric Wang, et al. that listed 1,800 genes that have been under varying selection pressure in Africa, Europe, or East Asia over no more than the last 50,000 years.

New Orleans, Race, and IQ,

VDARE.com

9/11/05

The tragic conundrum is that the young men who could most benefit from serving a hitch in the Army, the decent but not too bright 18-year-olds who are on the knife-edge between getting their act together and falling into a lifetime of drugs and crime, are the ones least likely to make Armed Forces' cognitive cutoff of having an IQ of 92 or above.

Sperm banking may sound derisible. But it's a heartrendingly serious matter to those who have the misfortune to need the industry's services. About one million Americans alive today were conceived with donor sperm. Another 30,000 are born every year.

"The Natural History of Ashkenazi Intelligence" by Cochran, Hardy, and Harpending

6/5/05

"'It would be hard to overstate how politically incorrect this paper is,' said Steven Pinker, a cognitive scientist at Harvard, noting that it argues for an inherited difference in intelligence between groups. Still, he said, 'it's certainly a thorough and well-argued paper, not one that can easily be dismissed outright.'"

Thomas Sowell's Black Rednecks and White Liberals

VDARE.com

That Thomas Sowell hasn't yet won the Nobel Prize for Economic Science reflects more poorly upon the economics profession's infatuation with mathematical formulas than upon Sowell's lifetime achievement. Personally, I've learned more from Sowell than from any other living economist.

IQ: Truth can set us (and Africa) free

VDARE.com

4/4/04

The UN reported on 3/25/04: "Few outside specialist circles are aware of the scale and severity of vitamin and mineral deficiency, or of what it means for individuals and for nations. It means the impairment of hundreds of millions of growing minds and the lowering of national IQs¡­ And it means the large-scale loss of national energies, intellects, productivity, and growth."

Sarich & Miele: Race: The Reality of Human Differences

VDARE.com

1/4/04

Many intellectuals pride themselves on how remote their theorizing is from mundane reality. After all, if daily life could provide evidence about the answers to lofty questions, we might not need so many intellectuals. And that subversive thought must be suppressed at all costs!

George F. Will Denounces Grandma

VDARE.com

11/16/03

In a confused review of Philip Roth's The Human Stain, George Will asks "Aside from the visual, what is race?" Fortunately, Roth understands better: at bottom, race is who your relatives are. And that makes for the most emotionally powerful scene in the book and movie, when the main character's mother explains to him the cost to her of his passing as white: "I'm never going to know my grandchildren."

Rush was right about black QBs. Here's why.

White sportswriters immediately dusted off their pitchforks and torches. Nobody is more hysterical about denying racial differences than the typical sportswriter¡ªprecisely because racial differences are so blatantly obvious in sports.

In Praise of In Praise of Nepotism

9/7/03

Brother acts are so fashionable in Hollywood today that somebody should make a movie about a screenwriter who can't get hired in Hollywood until he makes up a fictional brother for himself. I'd write the screenplay myself, except I don't have a brother ... Hey, that gives me an idea...

Gay Gene or Gay Germ?

VDARE.com

8/17/03

It's radically unfashionable to call male homosexuality a disease. But you can't think rigorously about the politically correct gay gene theory (or its less mentionable alternatives) without drawing straightforward analogies to genetic or infectious diseases. They all reduce the number of descendents, which is the number that counts in evolution.

The Blonde Wars

VDARE.com

8/10/03

As T.S. Eliot might have said if he had a sunnier disposition, August is the blondest month. It's late summer, so this will be a light piece on a topic -- light-colored hair -- that tends to generate more heat than light.

Dusty Baker Was Right

As you can see from the hard time Baker is being given for saying blacks are better adapted to heat and humidity, these days we're supposed to celebrate diversity -- but not notice it.

Race Flat-Earthers Dangerous To Everyone's Health

VDARE.com

5/11/03

Some of the "Race Has No Biological Reality" ideologues are so fanatical that, rather than be proven wrong about the reality of race, they'd apparently prefer to see members of their own race die.

A Couple of Wild-Eyed Wackos: Me and the NYT

VDARE.com

4/6/03

While many journalists write about race, I'm widely considered beyond the pale because I frequently write about it from a scientific perspective. After all, who else besides me reports on the genetics of race?

Well, the New York Times is who.

For several years now, the newspaper of record's distinguished correspondent Nicholas Wade has been making the case for the biological reality of race.

"A King Among Men: Arthur Jensen"

Racial Correctness: Sculptress Malvina Hoffman

10/20/02

Despite all the talk about celebrating diversity, nobody these days is supposed to notice diversity. There is almost no way for the public to look up in a modern reference work what people of various geographic origins look like.

It's All Relative: Putting Race in Its Proper Perspective

8/02/02

"Does race exist?" Years of debate over this question haven't accomplished much because neither side possesses a useful definition of "race." So, here is my General Theory of Race. This is probably my single most important contribution.

Mapping Human History

VDARE.com

6/28/02

Olson stops every few pages to tell you that there are no races that have been absolutely isolated genetically since the beginning of time because¡ªyou will be shocked, shocked to learn this¡ªhumans have been known to outbreed. This makes Mapping Human History resemble a geology book that repeatedly admonishes the reader that the Earth is not flat.

Thoughts on IQ and the Wealth of Nations

VDARE.com

"Seven Daughters of Eve"

VDARE.com

12/21/01

Population geneticist Bryan Sykes has grasped a simple fact about population genetics that resounds emotionally with the average person, yet has largely eluded most learned commentators. Namely, genes are the product of genealogy. Each individual's genes are descended from some people, but not from some other people. Thus, Sykes discovered, people often feel a sense of family pride and loyalty to others, living and dead, with whom they share some DNA.

Pioneer Fundophobia

Twin studies go back to St. Augustine. He pointed to the differences between fraternal twins, such as Jacob and Esau in the Old Testament, to disprove the central tenet of astrology - that time of birth determines personality and fate.

New  Afghanistan's Family/Race Problem & Ours VDARE.com 10/30/01
Assembling a post-Taliban government in a land where every extended family has been the sworn enemy of practically every other family is particularly perplexing for Americans. Because we rely less upon our extended families than anyone else on Earth, we run into severe conceptual problems understanding Afghans, who rank clan honor over all else. Yet understanding how Afghans - and most other humans - think will also help us grasp our most persistent domestic problem: race.
Pondering Patterson [V]: The Reality Of Race VDARE.com 6/11/01

"Recent genetic data, however, suggests that African Americans and whites - overall - really do form two quite distinctly different genealogical groups, just the way everybody who isn't an intellectual has always figured. Indeed, the government's categories of 'white' and 'black' appear to be, well, good enough for government work."

Darwinophobia I - Cavalli-Sforza in The Atlantic

VDARE.com

3/23/01

"Population geneticist Cavalli-Sforza has practically no professional expertise whatsoever on the subject of racial differences in behavior. C-S has carefully avoided studying genes that influence 'character, temperament, or intelligence.' Cavalli-Sforza only researches 'junk genes' that don't do anything."
Human Genome Disinformation

VDARE.com

2/23/01

Jack Kemp wrote, "The human genome project shows there is no genetic way to tell races apart. For scientific purposes, race simply doesn't exist." In response, evolutionary biologist Gregory M. Cochran snorted, "Then how come forensic anthropologists can determine a suspect's racial makeup from the DNA in hair or semen left at the scene of a crime?"

The Olympics: the Global Festival of Human Biodiversity
Angier's Wager and the Olympics VDARE.com 9/27/00

Natalie Angier recently wrote a major article in The New York Times proving that the races don't really differ genetically.

Races Don't Differ Genetically? Care to Bet?

VDARE.com

9/11/00

""All I know is what I read in the papers," said Will Rogers. He'd get intellectual whiplash reading the New York Times' coverage of race and genes. The flood of new data on race is exposing the fundamental conflict between the Times' two roles: newspaper of record and high priestess of political correctness."
How to Help the Left Half of the Bell Curve

1. Why We Aren't Supposed to Write about IQ

VDARE.com

7/15/00

Almost all politicians and pundits have become comfortable offering policy prescriptions for Garrison Keillor's Lake Wobegon - "where all the children are above average." In the real world, however, half the school kids are always going to be lower than the median. Nor have many mentioned lately that this mathematical fact imposes upon the rest of us ethical obligations not to use complex laws, like our immigration policies, to exploit our less acute fellow citizens for our own benefit.

2. How the Other Half of the Bell Curve Lives

VDARE.com

7/18/00

Nobody is willing to publicly admit that a whole lot of young people just didn't draw winning hands in the genetic lottery for intelligence. To state this fact is considered insensitive and, horrors, bad for self-esteem. Maybe, but to ignore it is to acquiesce in the IQ elite setting policies that are starkly self-interested and uncharitable.

3. IQ & the Class Struggle

VDARE.com

8/25/00

The assumption that all men are created empirically equal lets Stanford MBAs blame growing economic inequality on the laziness of the lower orders, although the scientifically accurate response would be "There but for the grace of God, go I."

4. Not So Hot Ideas for Helping the Left Half

VDARE.com

Eugenics, Feminist Celebrity-Style & Its Lessons for Immigration

#1  Jodie Foster's Baby

VDARE.com

6/19/00

"For Father's Day, we'll consider some of the fascinating implications surrounding a special kind of father, one that's increasingly in demand in Hollywood: the Sperm Donor Dad. Lesbian rock star Melissa Etheridge recently revealed who provided the DNA for her girlfriend's two children: David Crosby of Crosby, Stills, Nash and sometimes Young. According to numerous (if unconfirmed) reports in the British press, feminist heroine/glamour queen/single mother Jodie Foster had herself artificially inseminated with the gametes of a tall, dark, handsome scientist with an IQ of 160."

Sociobiology at Age 25

National Review

6/19/00

"Ironically, while the religious right futilely attacks Darwin's theory of what we evolved from, the left clamps down upon Darwin's theory of what we evolved to. The left has long denounced sociobiological research for validating what conservatives have assumed all along: that human nature--with its sex differences and its stress on individual, family, and ethnic self-interest--is an innate heritage, not a blank slate that can be wiped clean by speech codes, sensitivity workshops, and Gulags." 

The Reality of Race

VDARE.com

5/24/00

"What is a 'race'? It is essentially a lineage, a family tree. A racial group is merely an extremely extended family that inbreeds to some extent. Thus, race is a fundamental aspect of the human condition because we are all born into families. Burying our heads in the sand and refusing to think clearly about this bedrock fact of life only makes the inevitable problems caused by race harder to overcome."

Seven Dumb Ideas about Race

Importing Mexico's Worsening Racial Inequality

Part 2: Mexico's Insidious Color Continuum

VDARE.com

5/12/00

"After an experiment lasting nearly 500 years in Latin America, intermarriage has utterly failed to eliminate racial inequality. Mestizo nations like Mexico and mulatto nations like Brazil are bywords for vast concentrations of wealth among the white ruling class contrasted with extreme poverty among the darkest citizens. In fact, in Mexico racial segregation is worsening."

Part 3: How Latino Intermarriage Breeds Inequality

VDARE.com

5/18/00

"The Hispanic influx into California seems to be simply recreating the racial hierarchy of Latin America. For example, America's leading Latino politicians tend to marry Anglos. Thus, the Mexican-American elite is likely to become even whiter over the generations. While upwardly mobile Mexican-Americans marry blonde Anglos, downwardly mobile white men often wed Mexicans. Now, there is plenty to be said for getting hitched to a Mexican lady. But sadly, there is a big social cost to Anglo-Hispanic marriages: 'In most homes headed by an Anglo/Latino couple, Spanish becomes the household language.'"

"It's time to confront the question that's been whispered about Tiger Woods ever since this Mozart-like prodigy first appeared on television as a three year old playing golf with Bob Hope: Are multiracial people like Tiger genetically better than the rest of us?

The Future of Human Nature

Futuristic pencil-necked geek"As we all know from watching old science fiction movies, humans will evolve into hyper-intelligent, 97 pound weaklings. Our descendents will mutate into androgynous pencil-necked geeks barely able to hold up their basketball-sized brains. And as Steven Spielberg demonstrated in Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T., highly evolved species are also altruistic pacifists. Of course, the same sort of movies forecasted that in the year 2000 we'd all helicopter to work in our one-man autogyros. So, we know the future ain't what it used to be, but what will it be?"

Equality v. Truth: Darwin's Enemies on the Left

National Post

11/29/99

"Stephen Jay Gould, a famous sports nut, cannot even turn on his TV without being confronted by lean East Africans outdistancing the world's runners, massive Samoans flattening quarterbacks, lithe Chinese diving and tumbling for gold medals, or muscular athletes of West African descent out-sprinting, out-jumping, and out-hitting all comers. No wonder Gould is reduced to insisting we chant 'Say it five times before breakfast tomorrow: … Human equality is a contingent fact of history,' like Dorothy trying to get home from Oz."

Chimps and Chumps: What we can't learn about humans from bonobos and other apes

The Nature of Nurture

National Review

10/12/98

The Nurture Assumption: Why Children Turn Out the Way They Do by Judith Rich Harris
Despite her many strengths, her Camille Paglia-like ambitiousness drives her to overstate both the novelty of her true ideas (that genes and peers matter) and the truth of her novel idea (that parent's don't matter).

The Half Full glass

The g Factor: The Science of Mental Ability by Arthur Jensen
"Denouncing Jensen proclaims one's faith in empirical egalitarianism, which serves as the perfect excuse for ignoring the irksome demands of moral egalitarianism. By declaring that everyone could Be Like Me (if only they were properly socialized), the clever can, with clear conscience, continue to surreptitiously wage class war against the clueless." This is a hugely important, and shamefully neglected book, and my review offers a new perspective on the IQ wars.

Track & Battlefield -- w/Dr. Stephen Seiler

National Review

12/31/97

Everybody knows that women athletes are narrowing the gender gap separating them from male athletes' performance. Yet in running, the most quantifiable sport, everybody is wrong. Based on a major new study, the article explains why women are running slower in the Nineties, offering new insights into the nature of masculinity, the causes of ethnic inequality, the role of hormones (natural and illegal steroid), and the role of women in the military.

The Words Don't Match the Pictures: Why the Polite Lies We Tell About Race & Sex Are Undermined by What We See on ESPN

National Review Online 

8/27/97

This is the first chapter of my not-yet-finished book about what we can learn from sports about the current controversies over race and sex. It's the clearest introduction to my work. 
Note: April, 2000 -- Well, it won't get finished. When I got hit with nonHodgkins lymphoma in late 1996 (60 months in remission and counting!), I ran out of energy to accomplish this. Meanwhile, Jon Entine had been working on a similar book on sports and race on and off since 1989. So, I helped him a little with his book, Taboo: Why Black Athletes Dominate Sports and Why We Are Afraid to Talk About It. It turned out excellent (click here to buy Taboo).

Great Black Hopes

Black Athletes triumph by toiling intensely at those games where they tend to enjoy not just cultural, but also physical and mental edges over whites. This suggests a new, pragmatic view of racial differences. (This was probably my most important early article.)
