The bell curve has been debunked though. A lot of scientists have given generous refutations of the work, giving credit even while saying the overall conclusions of the book are erroneous; but, in my opinion, it's nothing but the racist fantasies of an old white man.

It has limited meaning the real world. Extremely low IQ correlates with low performance, but that's all it shows. For anything above a very low level of income or net worth, IQ has no correlation. That tells you that it is only one small piece of a larger puzzle, but people always talk about it as if it's the be all and end all of social and economic differences. If you want to analyse why other groups are successful you have to look at other factors, which is why focusing on IQ isn't useful.

Sowell is a genius, no doubt. And quite a few blacks have showed themselves exceptional, refined, and intelligent. But they're not reflective of the total community.
Presuming, for sake of argument, that the racial IQ question is farcical, blacks still have an inherent problem worldwide, and that problem is cultural.
Anthropology, unlike psychology, has actually made some stringent and repeatably accurate statements, compared to the other social sciences. Culture is a a weak word. But culture is a strong force for majority, because it's mostly intuitive, and is the most pervasive way people derive their worldview from.
Subsaharan Africans (with some exception) have exceptionally violent and tribal cultures. Actual tribalism, as observed in primitive societies, and not in the liberal misuse of the word, suppresses the kind of complexity that a large group of people needs to from civilization. Tribal peoples tend to stay that way, unless affected by outside forces. Civilization is not linear, it's something borrowed.
American blacks have a defined and unique culture, but in its current form, it actively discourages education and glorifies violence, materialism, and hatred for any legitimate authority. What do black kids listen to? Rap and hip hop. How are they raised? Mostly by single mothers, and in urban schools where actually trying and being intelligent is a vice, and avoiding reading, having sex, and doing drugs is a virtue.
It's even in their language. A job isn't a job or a career. It's a "hustle." What words do blacks use, even level headed ones, to perceive daily activities? Whatever reflects being a thug.
All of the problems in the black community are directly related to their culture.

Intelligence in the normal range is a polygenic trait, meaning that it is influenced by more than one gene, more specifically, over 500, and is thought to be 50% to 80% genetic in origin. The heritability of IQ for adults is between 57% and 73% with some more-recent estimates as high as 80% and 86%.

>> No.13270929

Exceptional individuals within a population are exactly that, exceptional.

The exact classifications for individual racial and sub-racial groups are indeed constructed socially, however the basis for these social constructs come from real physical realities. If you want examples of this you can look at medicine and sports, there are very real and quantifiable differences between different populations that can be explained mostly by genetics and partially by environment which can in many cases how said genetics end up being expressed in individuals.

The main issue with race today and using it to draw conclusions regarding groups and individuals is that people paint with far too broad of a brush to the point where the observations they make don't hold much weight anymore. In many cases saying "Blacks are like X" or "Asians are like Y" ends up only really describing a slim majority of the individuals in said group at best in the same way that saying "Humans have penises" just because the majority of people on the planet happen to be male.

Clines are way fucking better for conversations about "racial differences" and people need to pay attention to them instead, but most people have never even heard of a cline before.

To be fair, successful PHD students end up making significantly less than a particularly successful business man might end up making. I think that's part of the reason that people seem to think what the Anon who you're responding too thinks, that more intelligent people are only reasonably more successful than the average person on average. In reality that is only true depending on how exactly you define success and that ends up being very subjective in the end.

Someone could be a millionaire and by their own rationalization be a failure in life while someone could be a pauper and be very successful by their own rationalization. Of course the reverse is more common, but there are a lot of examples of this kind of thing.

The real blackpill is that we're all on a dysgenic path, because dumb people are having more kids than smart ones.
This is true both on the micro level (the population of any western country) and on the global level, where the population of Africa is rising more than any other.
It's the logical result of increased prosperity, living standards and welfare/aid.

So yeah, blacks are probably dumber than whites, but the average white person right now is pretty dumb, so there's nothing to be proud of.

I don't know where this will lead us. Maybe the whole system will collapse, we'll have a bunch of wars and eugenic practices will become popular again.

a lot of blacks get the shit tier of shit tier american education.
the reason blacks aren't as employed is because of education diversity, they lack education.
and the reason they don't pursue it is because college is an elitist industry meme that is grossly expensive.
And it isn't offering some phenomenal education it is about the same anywhere there is university.
Honestly I rate most of the people here total smooth brains.
and the people defending it aren't probably much smarter but at least enough to know hating another human being is gross and obscene.

I mostly agree with that pic, but I'm not sure about "hell on Earth". The elites will probably keep the general population somewhat satisfied, it's in their interest to not piss them off too much.
The US is a great example. The general population believes they have a choice between two very different options, but ultimately nothing ever changes and the people don't actually decide on any important issues (immigration, military interventions, wealth distribution...). Instead the elites handle that between themselves and dismiss the general population with simple rhetoric ("we need more immigrants because the economy", "we must fight terrorism" ...).

The null hypothesis is that there is no difference in intelligence, so the burden of proof is on you. Beyond that, and even beyond arguments over the claim itself (whether the author failed to properly account for the confounding variables of class and education) there's the simple fact that IQ has at this point been reduced to an almost pseudoscientific concept. "IQ" still has a presence in popular culture, but we honestly might as well be debating how many angels can dance on the head of a pin.

IQ is just a test lol

It is important to emphasise something that Murray himself points out at every opportunity. Even though there might be a standard deviation difference in test scores between some races, this doesn’t tell you anything about individuals. There is a larger than 1 standard deviation range among individuals in each race.

This means there is no basis for discrimination in terms of race.

??? It obviously is, as is every category. Even race realists will admit this. The question to ask is if it corresponds to something factual and useful.

>This means there is no basis for discrimination in terms of race.
Imagine a group of people you don't know. Even if you haven't yet tested them, statistically you can make a guess of their IQ performance by knowing their race.
You won't be always right, but you'll be right more than a random number of times.

This pernicious thinking just exacerbates the problem of race in modern society and leads to phenomena like black people with good qualifications being rejected for jobs on the basis of having a black name; having to "whiten" their resume in order to appear more palatable to employers.

Pic related shows the educational attainment of African immigrants from various countries into the US. For reference only 30% of the native US population have bachelor's degrees or higher. As you can see these people have a higher educational attainment rate (because rich people are the only ones who can afford to make the trip, and they tend to be high IQ), yet would be scrutinised by people like you for being black.

Are you implying they´re not connected?

>> No.13272443

Yes. People with as little genetically in common with each other as its possible to have will both get raced as Black. Genetically almost identical people will get raced differently based on what side of the Straits of Gibraltar they live on.

>> No.13272455

We all know every group has outliers. It doesn't change the fact that on average some groups are better at some things than others.

So if you don't have the time or the means or the will to assess every individual it makes sense to discriminate based on whatever limited data you have.
