HBD censorship in the news

An ESPN host was fired for “denigrating” the intelligence of people from the Dominican Republic.

During his program Thursday, Cowherd questioned those who said baseball was complex. “Like I’ve never bought into that ‘Baseball’s just too complex,’ ” he said. “Really? A third of the sport is from the Dominican Republic.”

Cowherd provided some stats to back up the low academic achievement of the Dominican Republic (where most of the people are mulatto), but that only made him more racist.

* * *

According to the DREAM Project website, “In a 2008 study of academic achievement for 3rd and 6th grade students in 16 Latin American countries, the Dominican Republic came in dead last in the areas of math, reading and science.”

  1. When you meet people in real life, just tell them “Black people are faster and jumper higher, but have the same intelligence as everyone.”

    • Still racis. If the person speaking is white the left expects them to replace the word “black” with “diversity”. Only blacks are allowed to use the word black.

      Ideally the left would prefer that it controlled all racial dialog. No one is allowed to say anything about race except them. Yea right. Everyone knows whats going on and Trump is the first in a long time to take on the left.

      • It varies a lot over Africa. Many years ago I read a comment by Vincent Sarich that the last hundred or so times the world record for the 100 meter dash had been broken it was by men of West African descent. He remarked that anybody who believed that that had nothing to do with genetics could believe anything. People from the Horn of Africa however do not excel at short dashes but totally dominant marathons. Interestly the sport of marathon running was totally absent from the traditional cultures of these areas. But many years ago when a group of Finnish marathon runners visited Ethiopia, village boys who had never competed in a marathon easily beat them in exhibition races.

      • Psychometric data indicate an average IQ of 110-115 for Ashkenazi Jews in the US. The proportions of Nobel Prize winners, Fields Medalists, Chess grandmasters etc. who are Ashkenazi Jewish is extraordinary. There is no convincing evidence that I’ve heard of that indicates any other racial/ethnic group in the world is similar. There is extensive psychometric data on the Japanese population indicating an average IQ of 107-108. Psychometric data on the black populations of Sub-Saharan Africa are generally in a a range of 60-80. Of course it is quite likely that the average IQ’s of various African populations vary over a considerable range but doubtful that any are close to the Ashkenazi average.

  6. Even Barack Obama recognizes that blacks will never achieve on their own; thus, the use of regulatory agencies and fines on every area of American life, using the SCOTUS disparate impact decision.

    Loans for everything; housing; acceptance into all public jobs; acceptance into academic courses even at the secondary schoo level—–all these things that are based on merit and standards of performance, out the window.

    Honda recently was heavily fined because the Obama admin sicced the bureaucracy on them; seems blacks seeking car loans couldn’t meet the objective standards for loans. Gee, wonder why.

    I actually think what is going on now behind the scenes (the housing thing is getting a bit of attention) using disparate impact is a greater immediate threat than even unbridled immigration….and further more, don’t know how to stop it considering SCOTUS upheld the last disparate impact case it heard.

    I think the justices have no idea, really, just how widespread would be the implementation by this administration, which knows that blacks will NEVER compete (because they can’t) without a constant source of entitlement from the government. (Instead, they should encourage bringing down birth rates of blacks).

    Obama hates American, guys. I used to think people who said that we’re crazy. Not so. I should have seen it earlier, using HBD (no, I didn’t vote for him, either time.) I should have realized that a man who came from the loins of Western-world haters such as his mother and father would behave as he has.

      1. vast numbers of Democrat-voting suburbanites would revolt against it by voting Republican, or even turning white nationalist;

  8. HBD censorship in the news

    Do you take HBD to mean that human groups differ in ability or that the difference is rooted in biology? If it’s the latter than you’re completely eliding any attempt to disentangle environmental and genetic influence. A lot of the commentors here, most notably the undiscovered jew, really don’t understand the basic terminology and logic of the issue.

    • The research on human behavioral traits consistently shows genetics to be the dominant factor generally accounting for 50%-70% of diifferences. The most interesting aspect of this research is the low impact of “shared environment” which corresponds to the traditional “nurture” ie SES, level of schooling, family structure etc. This seems to account for only a minor part of differences between individuals. The residual is due to something called “non-shared environment” meaning environmental influences not shared between siblings. “Non-shared environment” is for human behavior something like “dark matter” in cosmology. It’s important but nobody knows it is. One possibility that has been suggested as a component of “non-shared environment” is random errors in fetal development.

My husband is Dominican but is often assumed to be Israeli or Greek. He has a photographic memory and is an expert in IP law. DR society is quite segregated in this respect although they’re not politically correct about it- I once spoke with a social worker who said Dominicans are the worst when dealing with adoption; even black dominicans want to know the exact skin shade of the child before they will consider him.

This is a topic spoken in some HBD circles: how women love high societies (high status-morally corrupt locales), and this would apply to the manosphere realm, when it comes to attracting women.

        I look at a city like San Diego, a clean and beautiful place, yet women aren’t really impressed. The same reason why women love sociopaths, and not nice guys. The same reason why women vote democrat and dislike the half assed republican patriarchy.

      • JS: Can’t believe I’m bothering to say this, but I don’t think the “manosphere” (from what I’ve seen of it) is a good place to get advice on how to be in a long-term relationship with the kind of woman men claim to want. For short term flings etc it might work. Of course many “manosphere” guys claim to eschew marriage and other long-term relationships, so “manosphere” advice might work for that segment (although I think that might be a case of pre-declared inedible grapes.)
        I’m also unwilling to comment on relationships since I don’t think my observations will be useful for most of Lion’s readers. (I’m not unsympathetic to the plight of men; I often wonder what will happen if I have a son, how things could be easier/better for him, etc, but that advice/strategy will not work for most of Lion’s readers.)

      • No one said the manosphere is a marriage advisor. It’s sole existence is to provide a medium for men to game women, how to game them and where to game them.

        There are some venues (I call them cities) where the manosphere would tell men to engage in their craft. The sociopathic Northeast, especially NYC, with its value transference operatives, provides ample opportunities for men on the chase, where status and gold seeking women are abound. Another region is the French Speaking, Canadian City of Montreal, which hosts its own unique brand of psychopathic culture, via the Francophone style, with its laid back hedonism, cheap bourgeois culture and easy sex, an inverse of the Anglophone variant, which requires men to earn them, instead of being provided with such resources.

        I’m trying to figure out if women are really attracted to degeneracy that passes off as “cool” and alpha. And my observation is saying yes. I’m also thinking if women are instinctively attracted to the edginess that comes with living around NAMs, and my observation is saying yes. Many young White women love to live in areas bordering public housing complexes or NAM neighborhoods in NYC, instead of a staid, wealthy, yet boring area of the Upper East Side, or a safe area populated with East Asians nearby. Could it be the same reason as to why women are instinctively attracted to sociopaths and jerks?

        JS

        July 28, 2015 at 10:16 PM

    • because they could have higher IQs for any number of environmental reasons. first, if the environment in the next generation is worse for one group but better for another group (but the same environment overall — norms of reaction), the children of the low scorers could do better. second, even under the G + E model, high scorers likely had a better environment to start with…and unless you believe E is random, their children will have an environment as good or even better. third, the parents in the first generation may have scored differently for entirely environmental reasons anyway, which leaves us agnostic as to how the children will turn out.

  19. In the UUSR in the 1930s, Stalin was worried that he would be toppled by a violent peasant revolt, because there was widespread hunger in the USSR and hungry peasants are angry peasants.

    A botanist came along who told Stalin he could genetically engineer wheat to produce a yield 10 times greater, and Stalin bought the notion. Of course, no such thing happened, so Stalin’s reaction was to outlaw the study of genetics. This was a scientific setback that left the Soviets roughly 30 years behind the west, until finally under Brezhnev genetics was again made a legal area of scientific inquiry.

    There is more to the story, but that is basically what happened. Study of genetics continued, but it was sub rosa, and disguised as something else, as lengthy prison time could result if caught.

    My point in relating this story is that I could very easily see this happening here. Any research that violates the ruling orthodoxy will be dealt with more and more harshly, because whether it HBD, genetics, or climate change, there are huge amounts of money and prestige at stake. The ruling establishment would probably not be so ham-handed as to make such research criminally illegal, they would simply not allocate money to it, or if push came to shove make threats in private that bad things would happen to those who persist and their benefactors.

      • A high IQ black individual seems almost like an oxymoron, given the fact that blacks on average have lower future time orientation and other variables that makes them incompatible for modern society, such as uncontrollable aggression, which also nullifies their intelligence.

        Have you seen his half brother who works in China? The East Asians must dislike him very much, just for the fact that blacks and East Asians are at the opposite spectrum of racial variables, and given the strong tensions between these 2 groups, because of their stark innate differences.

    • The problem with genetics was that it flew in the face of the most basic Marxist tenant that (social) being determines conscience. In other words that environment and education has the power to change people’s character and lead to communism. Today’s denial of HBD by the establishment is no different. The anti-genetic pseudoscience claimed that if you take a dog and cut off its tail, the next generation will have a shorter tail until eventually you get a dog with no tail. The once that disagreed had their tail kicked and we’re sent to Gulag. Can happen here.

  20. The Dominican Republic has the luck to be located right next to Haiti which makes it look great in comparison.

  21. What HBD implies is that w/o affirmative action the top universities will be almost all Asian/white. That’s not politically sustainable.

  22. Swank, you didn’t read my example clearly. I said you take a homogenous population and divide them into an upper and lower half. Do are arguing against something I haven’t even posited.

    • you posited a hypothetical population where all members hailed from exactly the same environment. it never happened; angels on the head of a pin.

      • Are you aware, Swank, of any population-level analyses suggesting intelligence is mostly a matter of environment rather than genetics? There are many analyses with large N’s that suggest intelligence is 50%+ a matter of heritability.

        Genuine question. If such analyses exist, I would like to look at them.

      • There isn’t any. In the past I looked at literature which was said to disprove HBD, but in every single case, it was bunk. The best Swank can come up with is that there are a few low-IQ white people living on the island of Barbados, who look retarded, who are descendants of slaves and criminals, and the smarter part of their population emigrated leaving only the least intelligent behind.

      • Swank is a hot cake in Pumpkin Person’s blog, when it comes to debunking black crudeness. He makes a case that African elites are like the elites of other races.

        The creme of the crop African immigrant, has very little utilitarian value, even in a country such as ours. East and South Asians add more vibrancy and usefulness, and complement the White demographic more effectively with their entrepreneurship. Africans come to America and take on parasitic and unsavory government jobs.

      • actually that isn’t the best I’ve come up with. first, IQ is not intelligence. I’ve referred to the fact that cultural load is highly correlated with g-loading, explaining why the traditionally most g-loaded tests are information and vocab. reality flatly contradicts an interpretation where everyone accumulates the same prior knowledge, which means that it’s likely certain genotype correlate with certain environments; or “it’s the class stupid.”

        I’ve also referred to the FE which precludes any genetic explanation. I’ve referred to the fact that FE gains follow wealth and not the other way around: Korea and Japan received double the FE gains than the U.S. I’ve referred to several IQ gaps closing around the world in time periods too fast to be explained by genetics. And they follow wealth or political empowerment and inclusion of the group in question. Kenya now scores in the low-mid 90’s thanks to the FE.

        intelligence itself was strongly selected for which implies that among humans it has low genetic variance. and the only objective indicators of intelligence such as language and literacy support this view: all people can learn to read, all can speak. the fact that no gene for IQ has been found but genes for mental retardation (which are deleterious mutations) have been found support this view. the fact that beneficial mutations are easier to come by for superficial or less complex traits like hair color, texture, and eye color also explains why populations would differ on those traits and not raw intelligence.

        while it’s convenient that opposition to HBD is PC…that is not why scientists (real scientists, behavior genetics people are psychologists) oppose it.

      • There is just 400 of them left in Barbados. Looks like the bottom of the barrel.

        The forensic expert in my case was a white Jamaican and a pretty bright chap he was.

        Kenya scores in the low-mid 90’s now. Kenya’s homicide rate is low. there’s indication that it’s not just the “elites.”

      • So, taking the other explanatory model, these Barbadian whites are the victims of black racist oppressor privilege?

  23. Most African “elites” in America live around Montgomery County, Maryland, not too far off from the DC Government Industrial Complex.

    What should this tell you? African Elites are predominantly in public sector jobs. DC has the most black immigrants behind NYC.
