"Scientists are increasingly finding that propensities for human behaviors -- for addiction, aggression, risk-taking and more -- are written in our genes. But the idea that some groups of people are inherently smarter is troubling to many. Some scientists say it has such racist implications it's unworthy of consideration."
What I find troubling is that scientist allow their personal views to interfere with data. With all the the Globull Warming stuff, I wrote them off as liberals who would lie to get their own way (and I suppose "liberal" by itself would have worked). The idea seems pretty simple to me, and could very well have merit. Any scientist who would refuse to investigate something - anything - based on his feelings of the potential results should be ashamed of themselves.
The idea doesn't seem that crazy to me. Some people are really smart, some aren't. If you have groups where inteligence is valued and there is a high level of inter-breeding (relative to current standards), you would expect that group to become smarter over time.
But the idea that some groups of people are inherently smarter is troubling to many. Some scientists say it has such racist implications it's unworthy of consideration.
yet those same scientists would have no problem saying certain groups are more athletic then others.
factoring in liberal bias and their desire to never offend certain groups, that let's you know the answer to the first question
meanwhile... is political affiliation a race? because all the libtards i run into are just plain stupid
