Don't worry, many among the younger generations are waking up from our government school indoctrination. Eyes are opening everywhere.

Pffffffft...they aren't dying. Not at all. Besides, it ain't as if the guy didn't leave behind plenty of material to read. Anyone is free to expand on his research.

But to say that there aren't plenty of people pushing the science of I.Q. as it pertains to race is asenine. It's all over the place.

Quote from Thomas Sowell---

Quote:
"Incidentally, Professor Jensen pointed out back in 1969 that black children's IQ scores rose by 8 to 10 points after he met with them informally in a play room and then tested them again after they were more relaxed around him. He did this because "I felt these children were really brighter than their IQ would indicate." What a shame that others seem to have less confidence in black children than Professor Jensen has had".
