Dr. Sowell, himself, puts to the lie any assumption that blacks have lower IQs because of "genes". What it DOES prove is that the left- white, wealthy, elitists especially- believe this to be true, hence the soft racism and paternalistic attitudes that they are so very proud of. Even as they howl about racism on the right, it is THEY who practice it and THEY who have allowed their racism to destroy black families and neighborhoods. The left, demonRATs especially, are the very people who enslaved, murdered, lynched and denied equality. Conservatives would rub the left's noses in historical fact if they weren't such cowards.
