From Cambridge University Press, Understanding Race by Rob DeSalle and Ian Tattersall: The human species is very young, but in a short time it has acquired some striking, if biologically superficial, variations across the planet. As this book shows, however, none of those biological variations can be understood in terms of discrete races, which do... Read More
From KQED: The opening of the article is overstating many of the changes currently being considered, but that's indicative of which way the wind is blowing. When you abolish the use of admissions tests, as the University of California just did in order to let in more of The Diverse, you are immediately going to... Read More

As part of the Biden Administration's push to nominate black women because of their intersectional supremacy, Joe Biden is nominating Lisa D. Cook of Michigan State to the Federal Reserve board. I don't know anything about monetary policy, so I won't comment on whether she knows much about it. But I was struck that economics... Read More

From the New York Times: For some reason, that strikes me as the funniest Conquistador-American name yet that I've seen among diversity hires. I'm waiting for José Antonio Primo de Rivera y Sáenz de Heredia IV, Duke of Primo Rivera to show up on the New York Times list of its new vibrantly diverse employees,... Read More
From a New York Times book review that provides a useful way to think about the Great Awokening's "de-compartmentalization" of science from the Woke faith ("All races and genders are created equal, but some are more equal than others") that is threatening scientists and thus science. BOOKS OF THE TIMES Modern Science Didn’t Appear Until... Read More
A giant story in The Atlantic: To be precise, Dr. Chetty appears to have gotten his biggest break nine months before he was born: It's almost as if Raj Chetty had been eugenically bred to be smart and successful. But of course that's a pseudoscience, so he turned out dumb and unsuccessful: When Chetty was... Read More
From the New York Times: - It's almost as if 45 to 50 years of affirmative action haven't succeeded in making blacks and Hispanics smarter ... Here's the 1996-2011 trends in SAT Math scores from Unsilenced Science: Not much is happening other than Asians are scoring higher. Similarly, here's Unsilenced Science's graph of trends on...

One trend we've been tracking at iSteve recently is Tiger Children taking over the social justice jihadi racket. You might think that just because you are poor and black that you'd get a leg up in the struggle for, say, a leftist NGO job, but ... look out! The hardest-charging immigrants are coming from 10,000... Read More
Via Jonathan Haidt, here's a new story about an administrator at Claremont McKenna College in SoCal who was forced out today: What happened was that student Lisette Espinosa sent Dean Spellman an article Espinosa had written. Here's a representative sample: Within the first weeks of school, I told an upperclassman Latino that I felt like... Read More
From the Associated Press: You can always tell whether the fix is in -- are the media trying
From the Washington Post:
One of the older American collegiate jokes is a college president promising to build a university worthy of its football team (this may go back to the U. of Maryland in the early 1950s). With the U. of Missouri football team firing the president and chairman of the board, it looks like Mizzou will get... Read More
