Race is still the American dilemma. Glayde Whitney, Jared Taylor, Dr. Wayne Lutton, Fr. James Thornton and Prof.

Race is still the American dilemma. This is partly because Americans dare not speak frankly about it. There is no other subject on which private opinion diverges so greatly from public expression. This book is different. Its contributors-some of the most thoughtful people writing about race today-refuse to be intimidated by accusations of "racism. -Frank Borzellieri, Queens Ledger.

Race is still the American dilemma. This is partly because Americans dare not speak frankly about it. There is no other subject on which private opinion diverges so greatly from public expression.

This book is different. Its contributors--some of the most thoughtful people writing about race today--refuse to be intimidated by accusations of "racism." Here is straight talk on the burning issues that will shape our future:

-Why is integration not working?-Is Third-World immigration good for America?-Why is there so much black crime?-Are there racial differences in IQ?Are whites destined to become a minority?

This collection of essays on race and immigration is written by eight leading thinkers who are not afraid of being called "racist." It is published by the staff of American Renaissance, a monthly publication that has been called "a literate, undeceived journal of race, immigration, and the decline of civility."

I have read allot of books on this subject. With all the issues of illegal aliens, crime, etc., this book is a must. It is bringing to light some very serious subjects we face in the near future. If we don't get a handle on it now, our country will fold under pressure from a third world country invasion of our American ideals. My feeling is, if you want to move here, you must not be a criminal, you should learn our language and conform, or stay in your own country... period... I am pleased that a bunch of brave individuals have the guts to make known the facts and fight for the preservation of America.

If you are against illegal aliens invading our country, and all the issues, this book is a must read..
I suggest you read it.
I have just started reading this book,what a breath of fresh air!Shouldn't more people know what is known in this book?Why can't the government think like it's people,I mean don't they know how people feel about some of these things, and can't they learn things from this and other similar books?The Myrdal ideas and theories from the past,obviously have only worked against the majority of citizens,they should be thrown out and forgotten about,things just won't work as long as the past theories and ideas persist and are crammed at us !Obviously, I'm not that far into this book yet, but, am impressed with what I've read already.This book may have you asking a lot of questions,such as how did we get in this mess, etc. but there are answers here to many questions that will pop up in your mind as you read.The first couple pages may surprise you, but, I think it's written like that to wake you up to what comes in the following pages,read on and you'll see.
The truth hurts
Perhaps this book is better for younger readers who, like myself, are too young to remember the civil rights movement of the 60s. I find that people from previous generations have very fixed ideas about race relations in this country and will not be open minded when reading Mr Taylor's book. It is an honest appraisal of the problems facing the US in the coming decades.
A Statistical Fairy Tale for the True believers in IQs

Taylor, et. al. have woven together in a seemingly coherent, but nevertheless flawed way, the strongest argument yet for the remaining "true believers" in the battle to retain a logical fig leaf to cover the now thoroughly discredited ideology of white supremacy. The last leg of this dying school of racists is this old but still specious IQ argument.

Since it is an underlying theme inhabiting the subconscious of many whites, this alone is reason enough that this must be considered an important book. In a free society, even sublimated and abhorrent views deserve their day in the market place of ideas and in the court of public opinion.

That said this however is a statistical fairy tale whose appearance of cogency resides primarily in the fact that it makes the case for only one side of an implicitly two-sided theory. The authors then proceed to engage, and purport to test, only the side that proves their point -- "the IQ is the only thing that is important" side. Because they have done so cleverly and without the usual supporting ideology sideshow, I gave the book three stars.

The first assumption in this theory is that "genetic inferiority between the races as exhibited by differences in IQs and by a corresponding failure to recognize the importance of these differences," represents the sole cause of all of the misery resulting from the clashes between the races within the U.S. In effect, they argue that the only race problem is the low IQ of Blacks and other inferior races and how this congenitally based inferiority gets played out in society as crime, illegitimacy, low achievement, poverty, dependency, etc.

The second half of the theory resides in the alternative (but implicit) assumption that such misery might be explained equally well by other factors. For instance it might be explained equally well by the uninterrupted history of five hundred years of racial discrimination, brutality, violence and illicit domination over blacks and other non-whites. Or, more importantly, that the cause of such inabilities (whether they are the cause of the problems of race or not) may be much more of an environmental, than a genetic problem.

This latter conclusion: that abilities are much more related to environment than to genetic factors -- at least is the one now being drawn by contemporary Sociobiologists and Environmental Psychologists, who in the past have been friendlier to Taylor's genetic IQ hypothesis than to any others. Yet, even they are now changing their tunes.

For an interesting summary of what they have learned, the reader is referred to Robert Wright's magisterial work "Moral Man." On page 8, of that book for instance, Wright says: "Darwinian Anthropologists see the world's undeniably diverse cultures as products of a single human nature responding to widely varying circumstances and cultures."

One of their cardinal doctrines is emphasis on "the potency of the early influence of the environment in shaping the adult mind." Wright adds on page 9 that: "the most radical differences among people are the ones most likely traceable to environment." And finally, he concludes that "Genetic differences among individuals surely play a role, but perhaps a larger role is played by genetic commonalities: by a generic, species-wide developmental program that absorbs information from the social environment and adjusts the maturing mind accordingly." Biologists also all agree now that the relationship between genes and the environment is interactive: Genes affect environmental conditions and vice versa.

Taylor and his cohorts dismiss this latter assumption out of hand by simply ignoring it all together. The authors do not concern themselves with it, except to set it up as a "strawman," and then wave a dismissive hand at Gunnar Myrdal's monumental study: An American Dilemma which alludes to the possibility that white racism (an avowedly environmental factor) might in fact play a role, if not a decisive one, in the American race problem.

Instead of examining their own built-in assumptions carefully, Taylor and his colleagues proceed headlong into a repeat of the same old tired graphs and charts on cranium and brain sizes and weights, the 15 point IQ deficits between blacks and whites, etc. ad nauseam. These are studies that we have seen recycled for over a century now -- even as they are being continually discredited. Hitler's doctors used them to prove the inferiority of the Jews and Gypsies. The Phrenologists and Eugenicists had used them even before Hitler; as did early American Psychologists, Anthropologists, Eugenicists, and Sociologists. They now also appear in Murray and Hernstein's popularized recycled rendition of the same arguments called The Bell Curve.

So, these one-sided statistical analyses have a long and sordid pedigree in American Sociology, Psychology, Eugenics, and Anthropology. However, all but the least respectable scientists have long since abandoned these discredited but thinly disguised racist tracts. Standing alone unchallenged in a statistical and historical vacuum, these charts and regression lines lend an air of undeserved authority. The authors, to their credit, have skillfully milked them for all they are worth.

The problem with their analysis however is at least two-fold.

First, it is closed off, self-contained and as we have already noted, avowedly one-sided. It admits no contrary evidence even though there is tons of it out there to be admitted. And although it is true that there are correlations between genetic factors and race, and between race and socio-economic and cultural factors, correlations do not equal causation. And as noted above, the relationship between gene and environment is reciprocal.

[As a technical aside, one could reasonably ask: what truly valid and sound scientific analysis would use only the Pearson Correlation Coefficient (r) as a measure of the amount of variation accounted for in the analysis? If the more correct measure, r-square, were used instead, most of the apparent variation due to genetic differences would surely recede into statistically insignificance.]

A much larger problem for Taylor's thesis is the idea that IQ differences really matter in measuring success or failure in America's race-based meritocracy. A non-existent true meritocracy would be required to test this hypothesis. However, proof that America is no such meritocracy is that Orientals, with higher IQs than whites, are on the whole doing only slightly better than blacks in American society.

Also, a study of the IQs of the last twelve presidents shows that they range from a low of 91 (President George W. Bush) to a high of 155 (President Richard Nixon), yet this difference of 64 IQ points (more than four standard deviations) appears to have no discernable effect on the success or failure of the most important job in the world. If this is the case, how can we be convinced that a 15-point IQ difference will matter in other less important areas, and that it alone could be the cause of all of the racial strife in American society?

Then there are the peripheral issues such as the so-called Flynn Effect, in which blacks in one decade have higher IQs than whites in a previous one? For instance, blacks in 2000 have average IQs higher than Caucasians did in 1960, and higher than white military Generals of World War I. Should we then conclude that whites in 1960 or the Generals of WW-I are retroactively genetic incompetents? What about Martin Gardiner's idea of multiple intelligences, and the lack of efficacy of IQ test, more generally?

On balance, there is a lot left undone in this rather shallow analysis. I do not believe that Taylor and his cohorts have made a compelling case that low IQs are the cause of America's race problem.

Increasingly, the evidence is moving in the other direction, away from single factors to multi-factor explanations; away from IQ explanations and more towards environmental explanations. In these newer studies, the environmental explanations are beginning to eclipse the IQs-based explanations in a very serious way. Three stars.
