dismissed as representing little more than white prejudice.
If all Europeans disappeared from the face of the earth tomorrow, there
would still be a 1 to 5 cubic inch difference in brain size between
Asians, on average, anf Africans. There would also be about a 20 IQ point
difference in IQ between the averages of these two groups. There would
also be a significant difference in their average family structures,
temperaments, activity levels, tendency to violence, sexual behavior,
speed of physical maturation, and longevity.
Much of the brain size differences has been collected by Japanese and
Chinese scientists from the 1880s onwards. In my book I review 150 years
of this research.
The average behavioral profiles really are there. If black women
scientists collected the data it would show the same pattern. It is
not doing a service to anyone to deny facts or engage in wishful thinking.
As to politics and policy, I leave that to others.
