But it’s been some time since the HBDers have brought anything new to the table, so it’s unlikely that my views will change much on this topic in the future. In the following LONG blog post, you can read about my history with HBD, the full history of HBD, why there are so many Asian American male HBD proponents, and what we need to do going forward to deal with the HBD problem.
But even if it were possible…few people think that the results would be equal.
If I compared population heights, vertical jumps, IQ, bowling scores, head sizes, or whatever, it’s highly unlikely that I’d get the Well…hardly anyone is arguing with that.
), and during his time here, we had a few conversations online as well (see here and here).
I had no idea that there were so many Asian American guys who were adherents of this internet HBD movement.
If my IQ is 125 and yours is 123, does that mean I’m gunning for success and you’re doomed to failure?
What if I come from a poor family and had no school…if I have an IQ of 90 as a result of malnutrition, is it fair to say that it’s genetic?
Far from being the product of irrationality, fear and hatred, racism developed in Europe as a prodcut of Enlightenment, part of a rational and scientific project to understand the world.” Contrary to the oft-heard-but-incorrect HBD proponents’ claim that “Intellectuals have not attempted to embrace the idea of HBD,” intellectuals started “HBD.” Only it wasn’t called HBD back then, and most of them were simply playing with ideas which were not part of their main body of work.
D’Souza later goes on to discuss how many scientists and scientific racists back then were the same people.
The Bell Curve wasn’t nearly as racist as people made it out–the race thing was only a small part of the book–but it was a turning point for the resurgence of the movement.
Years later, I first saw the term “Human Biodiversity” years ago when I read Steve Sailer’s “Is Love Colorblind“–which pushed a common theory on why there are more AF/WM and WF/BM couples than WF/AM and BF/WM couples.
Of course, we’ve had our own talks about Human Bio Perversity…er Biodiversity…on this site.
