Skip to comments.'Heritage' Flap: Did Al Hunt Just Question IQ Of Non-Asian Immigrants?
Posted on 05/10/2013 5:33:28 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
Al Hunt prefaced his remark by describing the issue of ethnicity and IQ as a "swamp". But did he then proceed to wade right into it?
Morning Joe today took up the topic of the flap over a report on immigration produced by the Heritage Foundation. The panel's particular focus was a statement by report co-author Jason Richwine contained in his Harvard dissertation that "the average IQ of immigrants is substantially lower than that of native whites." Rather than rejecting the notion out of hand, Hunt asked "is that true of Asian immigrants? Is that true of all immigrants?" Ruh-roh! Did Al just suggest Richwine might have been on to something regarding the IQ of non-Asian immigrants?

Whoops! Did Al Hunt just agree with Heritage Foundation author on IQ of non-Asian immigrants? Ping to Today show list.
I thought his first name was Mike....
they’re paging him now, out in the parking lot.
Yeah, it certainly sounds to me like Al Hunt tacitly implied Jason Richwine is correct in his analysis.
Michele Malkin had a great article I thought I’d point anyone towards who might be in doubt of Richwine’s conclusion:
more coverage of this than Benghazi, how typical of the left wing media.
If it’s true, what’s wrong with saying it?
“One thing I have not seen in all of the leftist ranting about this is questioning whether the IQ difference comes from self-selection among the population of immigrants. “
The reason is irrelevant it seems to me. The end result is what matters. BTW, it’s well established that people from different ethnic groups do have different average IQ’s.
Truth will not be tolerated in the New World Order. Particularly when it comes to race differences.
“Celebrate Diversity!” Except sometimes pretend that diversity doesn’t exist if it makes select groups look bad.
right on target
Charles Murray’s landmark book The Bell Curve had Askenazi (European) Jews with highest IQ, followed by Japanese. Hispanics and Blacks were lower than European whites. Why is this so “controversial”?
If these folks are so dumb how is it they’ve had me working all my life to pay for their “free stuff”? They sound pretty smart to me! :O
Mexican average IQ in Mexico is 87.
and odds are we aren’t getting the cream of the crop.
Simply post-birth abort the low IQ, useless eaters.
I guess that means a demographic shift toward the Asian race.
(Do I need a sarc. tag?)
Consider that even after we give their children taxpayer funded public schools education, they still drop out at about 50%.
