Because nobody seems to know this anymore, as illustrated by the Andrew Sabisky whoop-tee-doo, here is Philip L. Roth et al's 2001 "Ethnic group differences in cognitive ability in employment and educational settings: a meta-analysis," in Personnel Psychology aggregating 105 cognitive studies of 6,246,729 individuals. Why there is a white-black gap in intelligence remains an... Read More
Yesterday was Galton's birthday, so the Royal Society sent out a tweet celebrating this hero of English science and mathematics, only to throw Galton under the bus. Today was Fisher's birthday, and the Royal Society sent out a tweet celebrating this hero of English science and mathematics, and then, to universal astonishment, only partly threw... Read More
From the New York Times: But, as Andrew Sabisky noted at around age 20 or 21 in a comment on a blog, blacks do have lower IQs than whites on average. That's likely the single most well-confirmed fact in the history of the social sciences. The Guardian frames it the exact same way: out of... Read More
From The Guardian: Dr. Taylor did a bang-up job of keeping the other 99 men from drinking too much: He went to the bottom of the world and returned with a serious drinking problem. ... He [James Taylor not his dad] met Donald Trump once, “in an airport. I just thought of him as a... Read More
After much dragging on Twitter, poor Dr. Dawkins tweets that as penance for Badthink he is mortifying his brain cells by appreciatively listening to Angela Saini's low brow Science Denialist Superior: The Return of Race Science: I hope Dawkins gets to the part where Saini goes to interview Harvard geneticist David Reich, who methodically demolishes...

For the last decade I've largely been alone in pointing out that the Housing Bubble/Crash of the previous decade had quite a bit to do with George W. Bush's 2002-2003 Increasing Minority Homeownership campaign. But while this has been been forgotten due to how it fits into neither party's partisan narratives while also raising disturbing...

I've long made fun of the Republican Brain Trust for consisting of bears of very little brain like Karl Rove. But Tory Prime Minister Boris Johnson employs an advisor, Dominic Cummings, who actually is really smart. Cummings recently advertised on his blog for ‘Two hands are a lot’ — we’re hiring data scientists, project managers,... Read More
The best team in the NBA so far this season is Milwaukee. The Bucks are 46-8. Interestingly, they feature identical twin centers, the veteran seven-footers out of Stanford Brook and Robin Lopez. For awhile they were publicly agnostic on whether they were identical or fraternal twins. It's not impossible for two extremely tall brothers not... Read More
In the future, there will only be two sports left in the world, soccer, with a season running from September to August, and basketball (October to September). But today there are still idiosyncratic local sports left here and there like the Eton wall game and Kambala, which is a kind of drag racing for water... Read More
From the New York Times Opinion page: Which I reviewed for Taki's Magazine. Feb. 15, 2020, 10:45 a.m. ET ... Certainly there were many elements that brought on the finance crisis, but Mr. Bloomberg correctly identifies the major one: a flawed attempt to use credit markets to broaden access to housing. Studies bear that out.... Read More
In this Age of Intersectionality, Women of Color are continuing to focus upon the Big Picture.

When affirmative action was introduced over a half century ago, many assumed that once the under-represented demographics were given a little help getting past the initial gatekeeper, they'd do well at all subsequent levels. Unfortunately, that proved naive. So ever since there have been unending struggles over how far up the ladder to extend affirmative... Read More
As I've often mentioned, one of my favorite perhaps crackpot but also perhaps legit theories is French leftist economist Thomas Piketty's claim that his famous equation r > g proves that the Forbes Magazine lists of billionaires have to be wrong because there must be far more old money billionaires, while the Forbes lists are...

Here's a story that's starting to get national attention (here's the New York Post) for the usual reasons. See if you can figure out what the real story is. From the Los Angeles Times: ‘Where’s your passport?’ chant breaks out at prep basketball game in Santa Maria By CHUCK SCHILKEN STAFF WRITER FEB. 12, 2020... Read More
From the New York Times news section: As Egypt’s Population Hits 100 Million, Celebration Is Muted With little habitable land, deepening poverty and dwindling supplies of water, the future looks bleak. And there is no sign of a slowdown. By Declan Walsh Feb. 11, 2020 ... If unchecked, the population could reach 128 million by... Read More
From the New York Times: That's a South Asian name, so I guess when the New York Time assigned her Murray's imposing Human Diversity: The Science of Gender, Race, and Class to review, they figured she had to be smart at STEM. Uh, no, she's getting two different questions confused here. After all, who is... Read More
American Indians have been telling the legend of the eruption of Mt. Mazama in Oregon the formed what is now Crater Lake National Park for 7,700 years, according to Logarithmic History. A new paper claims that Australian Aborigines have kept alive the story of the formation of a few small volcanos in Budj Bim National... Read More
Back in my April 11, 2018 Taki's Magazine column "Ghosts of Africa," I wrote about a draft scientific paper entitled “Recovering signals of ghost archaic admixture in the genomes of present-day Africans,” by Arun Durvasula and Sriram Sankararaman. Today it has finally been officially published in Science. A ghost population is one for which we... Read More
From NPR: Nigeria May Be Part Of Trump's Travel Ban, But Nigerians Tend To Trust Trump February 11, 20204:24 PM ET NPR's Audie Cornish talks with Nigerian writer Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani ...

On the tenth anniversary in September 2018, I recounted the state of the art explanation of the Mortgage Meltdown based on a decade of research by academics into who defaulted and how much. Of course, there were broader causes for dislocations in the American economy, such the deindustrialization of the United States leading industrial countries... Read More
From my review in Taki's Magazine of Ezra Klein's new Why We're Polarized: The good news, according to Klein, is that “white Christians” are being demographically inundated in what Ezra calls the Browning of America. The bad news, according to Ezra, is that some whites have started to notice the fate that is being prepared... Read More
A Scandinavian Airline commercial (in English): Is the point of this Scandinavian Airline commercial about how, when you stop and think about it, there is no indigenous Scandinavian culture -- but instead everything Scandinavian was all derived from abroad -- to encourage Scandinavians to travel abroad (on SAS) so they can CULTURALLY APPROPRIATE even more...

From my new book review in Taki's Magazine: Read the whole thing there.
Do you remember Bernie Kerik? He was Rudy Giuliani's driver, who was somehow vaulted over the course of a few years into George W. Bush nominating him as Secretary of Homeland Security in 2004, before various scandals brought him down. In turn, Kerik had his own ambitious con man, Larry Ray, preying on him. Ray... Read More
From the New York Times opinion page: Could be worse than Bruce Lee ... I bet Mr. Chaw has a few unproduced autobiographical screenplays in his desk drawer about growing up Asian-American while not being Bruce Lee, and his unhappiness could be relieved if they were optioned.
The dividing year in architecture is 1945. Before, Westerners tried, in many different styles, to make buildings look beautiful. After 1945, they felt like they didn't deserve beautiful buildings. Consider the city halls of some affluent Southern California towns: Santa Barbara, 1924: Beverly Hills 1932: That's pretty dismal for the richest single municipality in a... Read More
An upcoming movie about a good journalist (James Norton as Gareth Jones, who broke the story of Stalin's Ukraine famine) and a bad journalist (Peter Sarsgaard as Walter Duranty, who won the Pulitzer Prize for covering it up):
OK, it's officially over. Try as you might, you won't have a better life than Dave McCoy, beloved founder of Mammoth Mountain ski resort, who has died at age 104. From the Los Angeles Times:
I hadn't realized that the Wakanda-style National Museum of African-American History and Culture on the National Mall in D.C. was part of "the cult of antiquity & the imposition of monuments to a nation's mythical glorious past," until this Yale history professor pointed it out, but of course, she's right. By the way, after looking... Read More
From Times Higher Education in UK: Adam Rutherford: taking on racism with the help of genetics Despite its tainted origins, genetics provides many of the essential tools for challenging racist thinking, argues UCL fellow and science broadcaster February 5, 2020 By Matthew Reisz There were several reasons why geneticist Adam Rutherford, an honorary research fellow...

From the New York Times movie section: Stop Blaming History for Your All-White, All-Male Movie Movies like “1917,” “The Irishman,” and “Ford v Ferrari” have all used their historical settings as a shield to deflect diversity critiques. But the past had people of color and women, too. By Aisha Harris Ms. Harris is an Op-Ed... Read More
From the Los Angeles Times: No, it's not. The answer, by the way, is "No." The actor is a white man born and raised in Europe.
From Vice: Why I Quit Being a Climate Activist The climate movement is overwhelmingly white. So I walked away. By Karin Louise Hermes Feb 6 2020, I FEEL TIRED WHEN MY STORIES ARE USED FOR INSPIRATION, BUT I‘M NOT WANTED IN THE ROOM FOR NEGOTIATIONS.

One of my more random predictions was that Trump and the new leftist president of Mexico, AMLO, were going to get along constructively. So far, they are, and it's driving Conquistador-American Spanish language newscaster Jorge Ramos crazy. On the NYT opinion page, His Translucentness writes: Mexico, Don’t Stand in the Way of Central American Migrants... Read More
As America transitions from having workers to having wokers, the Democratic campaigns have come in for criticism from former employees wanting to kvetch. Thus, from the New York Times: What It Was Like to Work for Andrew Yang He has called his campaign “the journey of my life.” But what got lost in the novelty... Read More
Whaddaya think? They are having a debate tonight, Friday, at 8pm Eastern time that is supposed to be a bladder-busting 3 hours or so. Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Amy Klobuchar, Pete Buttigieg, Andrew Yang and Tom Steyer were invited. But no Bloomberg, Gabbard, Bennett or Patrick.
