  •  No data can predict IQ scores for two generations (3+ / 0-)

    down the road.  That's pseudo-science at best and racism at worst.  Or both.

    You have exactly 10 seconds to change that look of disgusting pity into one of enormous respect!

      I meant that current testing of 2nd gen immigrants is going to show them at lower IQ scores would show them lower due to language difficulties and poverty skew.

      Actually, once you think about it, you should expect IQ scores to rise dramatically from generation to generation as they become more and more integrated into society (both in terms of language, and 'tests in the US').

      Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.

      •  Oh, I wasn't criticizing, just pointing out the (0+ / 0-)

        obvious flaw in the Richwine reasoning.
