Thomas Sowell is one of the most underrated public intellectuals ever.
The system has barely changed since then which makes things worse
The system has barely changed since fucking Booker T Washington
Well alright, hyperbole, but when you see things like this being written 107 years ago:
"There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs."
one really has to wonder.
@radeon If you mix a black person with an IQ of 70 with a White person with an IQ of 105 you are going to get a child that has an IQ lower than 105. That is pretty basic genetics
IF this was true, society would be a bunch of brain dead barbarians,
regression to the mean
>Even if the white parent has the dominant gene, the IQ will likely not be higher than 105 regardless. Are you impliying that the other parent's genes have no influence on the child's genetic makeup?
Dominant gene is a keyword
>If you mix a pygmy with a Nordic, should we expect the child to be either 100% black or 100% white? No, the child would be somewhere in the middle
That is just stupid
Analizing just skin color, the result tend to be more to the white side.
well, 10+20/2 would = 15, but I'mma go out on a limb here and say that genetics is a tad more complicated than basic math
have yall read any of Sowells books?
It's weird; I've known and respected him for many years simply by seeing his interviews on TV, but still haven't sat down to actually read a damn book of his
I'm not sure what to read first, I'm thinking Basic Economics.
>I can tell you that miscenegation is the sole reason the average IQ of an african-american is 85, compared to the 65-70 you'd expect if they were 100% Negroid
if that's the case, race mixing is a good thing...
i couldnt find the original study but here is one that explains it somewhat
"Basic Eco" and "Black Rednecks" are on my to-read-first list
and i think looking at it through the lense of race is counter productive
Basic Economics is good
I listened to part of black rednecks and I found it to be quite world-view altering.
Gotta git ya levels of analysis right, boi.
Race is tricky.
and misapplied 99% of the time
Because most """race realists""" don't understand genetics
Have you seen Jean-Francois Gariepy?
Race realist who definitely understands genetics
I will check them out
TL;DR did a really good video on the heritability of IQ
as it stands right now
thanks for the link
JF > Sargon
He does require patience though
He is too arrogant, tried to watch one of his videos and it was annoying
