You have obviously never worked in an environment in which the product was the ability to turn abstract thought into a functioning product. I repeat: The ones who didn't score high on the IQ tests didn't perform well on the job. All of your excuses and wishful thinking will not alter the concrete fact that we are not all equal.There are vast differences within racial groups and between racial groups. Caucasoids, Mongoloids, and Negroids are the three major racial divisions. Each division is divided into secondary divisions that are different from one another due to the fact that the regions in which they evolved provided different obstacles to their advancement.

Anyone who has followed the decades-long controversies over the role of genes in IQ scores will recognize the names of the two leading advocates of opposite conclusions on that subject-- Professor Arthur R. Jensen of the University of California at Berkeley and Professor James R. Flynn, an American expatriate at the University of Otago in New Zealand.

What is so unusual in the academic world of today is that Professor Flynn's latest book, "Are We Getting Smarter?" is dedicated to Arthur Jensen, whose integrity he praises, even as he opposes his conclusions. That is what scholarship and science are...
