IQs of East Asians

One of the major arguments against heredetarianism is the claim that East Asians’ higher IQs than Europeans is merely a result of effort, and are in fact an example of effort raising the IQ of an entire group by about 4 points relative to 100, which is presumably what they would score if they were as “lazy” as Europeans.

First Worldism: The European Revolution

There is something I want to share with “fellow Europeans”, and it is something hard to describe. It is to, in a moment, “feel” the past. How can I convey this? How can I show this? Around 7700 BC, white skin had “reached fixation”, or the highest prevalence in the genome until today or some later decline, in modern-day Sweden. Some time around 3500 BC, white skin reached fixation in the rest of Europe. I don’t say this because white skin is super-important (though melanin is a hormone and it’s absence will have causal effects on behavior), but just to …

First Worldism: A Holisis

My views on race differences did not come from some heavy-handed indoctrination from anyone. It came from looking at atlases and tables. I love tables and lists, when I’m bored I’ll make lists out of things just for fun. Murray Rothbard, when reading about regulatory policies of the US Federal Government, said that he didn’t set out to find some conspiracy – but that the conspiracies just popped right out at him. Seeing these conspiracies between industry and government was not a product of some analysis on Rothbard’s part at first. It was a holisis, or an immediate piecing together …

Slavery in the United States

This is a jarring statement at first glance, but I think the evidence is pretty simple and clear. Perhaps to reduce emotionality, replace “slave” with “serf” or “peasant,” which is appropriate since in practice they were the same thing—one system had a Master who owned a slave, the other had a Lord who owned land that a serf was bound to work on.

The Heritability of Political Views

The Iron Law of Heritability From Thomas Bouchard 2004: “As Rutter (2002) noted, ‘Any dispassionate reading of the evidence leads to the inescapable conclusion that genetic factors play a substantial role in the origins of individual differences with respect to all psychological traits, both normal and abnormal’ (p. 2). Put concisely, all psychological traits are heritable.”

Colonialism did not Make Africa Poor

Africa is a big place with a lot of history, but is treated as a single entity in modern political discussions. Before going over the charts, consider this: In 1950, the continent of Africa (including North Africa) had a population of 230 million. In 2015, that number had increased to 1,166 million (1.166 billion). This is a quintupling of the population. Is Europe directly responsible for that? Did they pay Africans to overbreed? This, the most important factor in Africa’s standard of living, is simply not mentioned.

Affirmative Action

A black kid from an upper-middle income family and school will get more preferential admissions treatment than this girl will. What an Orwellian euphemism, “affirmative action”. 1997 SAT Data In 1997, Stephen Epinshade found that being black is worth 230 points on the SAT, being hispanic is worth 185 points, being asian costs you 50 points, and being a legacy is worth 160 points when applying to a university.

Blacks and Whites with Equal Educational Attainment Differ in Cognitive Ability

Black and White Americans with the same formal level of education differ significantly in their cognitive abilities. Specifically, within any given level of formal education Whites consistently outperform Blacks. Moreover, this effect is so strong that Blacks often underperform Whites who have lower levels of formal education than they do. Consider the following data from the General Social Survey. This public data is frequently used in social science research and contains a test of verbal intelligence as well as measurements of participant’s self-identified race and highest educational degree obtained. Verbal intelligence tests correlate at around .75 with full-scale IQ and so this …

The Wealth of Colonizers (or Lack Thereof)

One popular rhetorical attack on white countries is that their wealth is a product of exploiting other countries. Now one way to evaluate this is to look at the “colonized” countries and how they fared. But the Europeans-as-colonial-exploiters idea has another end of the equation—where the “exploitation” went. If the colonizers are exploiting all this wealth, there should be some wealth on the other end.

Race Mixing

There is a great swell of people pushing the idea of mixed-race people are “more fit” or “stronger” or “healthier”. The language they use for this new mixed race population is strangely belligerent, calling them “stronger” and “superior”. It seems to be a kind of mixed-race supremacism – distinct from the “folk” focus of racial nationalist groups – but with very little effort to find real data for their claims.

Mass Immigration as a Weapon

Following the invasion of Poland, Hitler’s plan to punish the country, in addition to labor conscription and shipment of food to Germany, included shipping in Jews, Gypsies and communists literally by the trainload. Poland was to be a dumping ground for the “human detritus” in Europe, and this was rightly recognized as an aggressive act against Poland. Hitler had no desire to annihilate France in this way, because he didn’t hate France, and didn’t punish them with unwanted immigrants. That was done by market liberal and socialist parties in France.

Yes, “Anti-White”

Nigeria is too black. One ought to send people of other races into Nigeria to the point that black Nigerians are a minority, so that black Nigerians no longer make the rules, and must obey the rules made by these new people who came in. And this is to be done even when the majority of black Nigerians do not wish for this to happen, i.e. against their will. When the British invaded and took over the area that is now “Nigeria,” they made the rules. This was a denial of sovereignty and was anti-Nigerian. But the British didn’t replace …

Blacks and Whites with the Same IQ Still Differ a Lot

The cognitive profiles of whites and blacks are different. So even if the full-scale IQ is the same, blacks and whites do better or worse on different tests. This is based on one study by Craig Frisby, two studies by Arthur Jensen, one by Cecil Reynolds. For the same IQ, whites will be generally better at problem-solving and spatial reasoning, while blacks will be better at memory, procedural tasks and rote learning.

IQs of Races in the United States

Here I’m going to go over the median IQs of the main races in the United States. There are 4 sources for this. The IQ Studies SAT scores ACT scores NAEP scores TIMMS and PISA scores And in this we will be looking at the scores for these racial categories – whites, blacks, hispanics, asians – and pacific islanders and american indians where available.

The US Would be Running Budget Surpluses if it were all White

The US Federal Government does not keep statistics on taxes paid by race. But, they keep statistics on income brackets by race, and an organization called “The Citizens for Tax Justice” calculates the proportion of ALL taxes (federal, state and local) paid by each income bracket. And so using this data we can see that Non-Hispanic Whites paid 75.86% of the taxes despite being only 62.1% of the population.

Race Differences in School Funding Probably Never Mattered

One of the non-genetic explanations for the various inequalities between blacks and whites in the United States has to do with a lack of educational opportunities in terms of school quality. The argument goes that even if such opportunities are, or were to be, equalized today, that will not overcome the effects of prior lack of opportunity for blacks. So before getting into the past, which always has worse data, let’s figure out what’s going on today.

Segregation

When I was younger, I would read world atlases. And sometimes I would come to an article, say an article on the country Colombia, and it would say that Colombia is a world leader in coffee production, then list off some other “cash crops”. Then it would go into the growing textiles sector, and mention that it has some problem with debt. Maybe it’s a leading producer of phosphates as well or something. And if you read all of this qualitative, subjective description, you would never realize that Colombia was poor. It’s not until you got to “per capita GDP” …

School Quality as a Cause of Racial IQ Gaps

One environmental factor regularly brought up regarding racial IQ gaps is that some races go to “good schools” more often than others, and other races go to “bad schools” more often than others, and this would be one of the many explanations for racial IQ gaps. There are 4 reasons to believe that school quality has zero impact on racial gaps:
