Racial IQ Gap, Nature versus Nurture

The latest "Conversations with Coleman" podcast is a discussion with Bret Weinstein, an evolutionary biologist. Coleman Hughes is a young black American writer. One thing they talk about is the IQ gap between blacks and whites, which it sounds like they both believe to be a real thing, not just an a...

Re: Seeking Book Recommendations, 1990s Yugoslav Wars

Haha, Nadal is my favorite. He's a monster. His focus never wavers on the court where he is a beast. Off the court, apparently he is the nicest guy in the world. I get it though. He is very irritating to watch with all his OCD tics. And his matches take forever, especially when he plays Djokovic who...

Seeking Book Recommendations, 1990s Yugoslav Wars

I have an interest in the Balkans but know little about it. Can anyone recommend any good unbiased introductory books about the 1990s Yugoslav Wars? I think my interest was sparked by the current best tennis player Novak Djokovic, a Serb who I don't really like very much as a fan although he is an a...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Apparently it's now okay to share your political views even at work, just so long as you are on the right side of history. Fascists just need to shut up.

Re: If you actually think black lives matter, watch this ad

Fair enough, Cortopassi. Then I do give you credit for sharing your thought process and for accepting the fact that the racial composition of a society can have a big effect on its homicide rate. And on my end, I accept the fact that race isn't the only factor; other factors like organized crime ar...

Re: If you actually think black lives matter, watch this ad

Do you have any black peers or co-workers? Ask them what can be done to improve the situation. I imagine what they'll say is that it comes down to personal choice and responsibility. About the best that government can do is to encourage a strong economy so that there are a lot of jobs available to ...

Re: If you actually think black lives matter, watch this ad

The word "racist" is stupid. I don't care if anybody calls me a racist, just like I don't care if anybody calls me honky, gringo, cracker, or nigger. I really don't care what anybody thinks about me or calls me. That's their problem. My problem is to try to treat everybody fairly no matter what the ...

Re: If you actually think black lives matter, watch this ad

Look up the book by Jared Taylor called "Paved with Good Intentions: the failure of race relations in contemporary America". He has a good discussion of the problems. The problem is basically big government and other forces breaking up families and creating welfare dependency. Government can't solve...

Re: If you actually think black lives matter, watch this ad

The additional homicide rate above what you see in other westernized countries is due to a combination of things: black on black, hispanic on hispanic, and black/hispanic on white. Somebody will say well what about say white on black homicide? Blacks kill about twice as many whites per year as white...

Re: If you actually think black lives matter, watch this ad

Here is a thought on why our homicide rate is higher than the rest of the westernized world: Have you ever heard the phrase "diversity is our strength"? Do you ever wonder if that is true or if the powers that be just want us to believe that it is true? I suspect that most of the "westernized world"...
