This TV series about Race and Intelligence shows the facts pretty well. The authors are fairly open minded. In the end they trying to remain politically correct and find what they want to find: that there is no genetic basis, or that differences are only due to discrimination.
Race and Intelligence 2/7 por NzingahMorena
It is easily forgotten: Human-Stupidity is not really about the scientific discussion and solution of racial theories. We are most interested in unconsciousness, blindness, dogmatism.
We are watching how clear scientific statements by Jensen, Rushton are met with ire and pseudo-scientific rebuttals. Even Mr. James Watson, who is not a normal Nobel Prize winner, but considered one of the most prestigious of Nobel prize winners was destroyed when he dared to speak unpopular truths. Even he is so wrong, where are the scientific rebuttals instead of the ad hominem attacks?
We wish that the truth would be accepted, so the discussion would be based on the truth, not on wishful thinking. Further discussions are here:
- discussion between J Philippe Rushton and Graves kindly sent by our reader EgalitarianJay. First one 10 minute discussion. There Rushton gives precise answers. His opponents manage to find the most ridiculous excuses to defend their positions. “Race does not exist. Asked if they had 100 Chinese in a shower, 100 Kenyans in a shower, 100 Englishmen. Can they identify which is which?” They still could somehow argue they could tell the difference, but somehow the difference is not clear. Hilarious.
Further down on that page you can see the 2 hour-long discussion.
- Race differences in intelligence: how research changed my mind to overcome the “all races are equal” dogma. | Human-Stupidity
- The film mentions this case: Racial differences in intelligence: James Watson, Nobel Prize winning geneticist persecuted for scientific truth | Human-Stupidity. They even mentioned the fierce reaction he encountered and that he refused an interview, after consulting his advisors. They did not dare to say clearly that what he said was the truth.

These videos are also on youtube, but part of it already has been deleted by demand of a TV station. We wish there was an honest way to see these videos respecting the producers. Either to suffer through some commercials, or to do some micro-payments (no, not human-stupidity, but the interested watcher. I.e. we would gladly pay one fee for your own watching)
Race and Intelligence 3/7 por NzingahMorena
This movie let Lynn and Rushton speak first, and then Nisbett gives a few counter-examples, and finally Flynn give his opinion. The trick is, that there is no chance for Rushton and Lynn to give a final rebuttal. A discussion of the four would be great.
Let us give Rushton a chance for rebuttal:
- Rushton: No Black Gains In Reading and Mathematics Over Five Decades
- Rushton & Jensen v. Flynn on Flynn Effect
- The rise and fall of the Flynn Effect as a reason to expect a narrowing of the Black–White IQ gap (original scientific paper)
- VDARE.com: 07/23/10 – Nisbett Wrong, Again—No Black Gains In Reading and Mathematics Over Five
- Jensen and Rushton on Flynn Effect (watch the long discussion thread)
- Some IQ Conundrums
Note that one of the thrusts of the well intended help to improve the fate of blacks is to save them from the culture they themselves created. The same way how culture can influence intelligence, intelligence influences the type of culture people create.
