As soon as an author takes a position that doesn't conform with politically correct positions the hate police defame them I am skeptical of the ethnic differences in I that are published in the book however if I were skeptical of the East Asians having higher I's than Caucasions then I would be criticized It seems as if its only politically correct to be a skeptic when whites like the Jews or Caucasions score higher on I test than blacks There is something seriously wrong with intellectual honesty when it boils down to that

blacks score lower than whites etc and that intelligent people are succesful ie make money Surely mixed races score higher than everybody so score one for interracial marriage Charles Lane The Tainted Sources of The Bell Curve in The New York Review of Books December 1 1994 and Stephen Jay Gould Curveball in The New Yorker November 28 1994 have taken the trouble to actually look at the documentation Herrnstein and Murray used to support The Bell Curve and they have found it wantingThe Bell Curve does not purport to be a piece of original scholarship but a review of the literature so examination of the sources is certainly relevant One source for the book was a publication entitled The Mankind uarterly or specifically articles written by contributors to that journal Unfortunately that magazine was founded for the sole purpose of selling the idea that whites are genetically superior to other races Its founder and editor in chief was a vocal supporter of apartheid and segregation in the United States Most reputable anthropologists have denounced the magazine One of the major sources that Herrnstein and Murray use to show evidence of lower I scores of African blacks is an I test that had been declared invalid for non Americans One of the uestions for example showed a tennis court without a net and the test taker was supposed to sketch in the net to get credit for the answer Lane also discovered that the source Herrnstein and Murray used to document the higher scores of Asians sampled the children of only wealthy Japanese compared to a much broader sample of American children A study done by a prominent social scientist in Minnesota that carefully matched socioeconomic and demographic factors found no difference in I at all between Japanese Taiwanese and American children It is interesting to note that Herrnstein was the author of a 1971 Atlantic article that promoted paying well educated mothers for higher birth rates But it remains for that most lucid of commentators Stephen Jay Gould to put the whole issue of heritability of I into perspective; Take a trait that is far heritable than anyone has ever claimed I to be but is politically uncontroversial body height Suppose that I measure the heights of adult males in a poor Indian village beset with nutritional deprivation and suppose the average height of adult males is five feet six inches Heritability within the village is high which is to say that tall fathers tend to have tall sons while short fathers tend to have short sons But this high heritability within the village does not mean that better nutrition might not raise average height to five feet ten inches in a few generations Similarly the well documented fifteen point average difference in I between blacks and whites in America with substantial heritability of l in family lines within each group permits no automatic conclusion that truly eual opportunity might not raise the black average enough to eual or surpass the white mean Herrnstein and Murray conveniently ignore documented high I scores of poor black children adopted into affluent intellectual white families They also overlook average I increases in some nations since the Second World War eual to the entire fifteen point difference now separating blacks and whites in America Gould has another gripe; the failure of lay readers to penetrate the authors' scientism He uotes many reviewers who said in their reviews that they were unable to judge the adeuacy of the arguments because of their lack of scientific training Gould says The book is a rhetorical masterpiece of scientism and it benefits from the particular kind of fear that numbers impose on nonprofessional commentators It runs to eight hundred and forty five pages including than a hundred pages of appendixes filled with figures So the text looks complicated and reviewers shy away with a knee jerk claim that while they suspect fallacies of argument they really cannot judge Yet the central premise of The Bell Curve rests entirely on two entirely unsupported assumptions; 1 that there is a single general measure of mental ability and 2 that the I tests that purport to measure this ability aren't culturally biased Ironically Herrnstein and Murray fail to document these assumptions in their book According to Gould they simply declare that it has been decidedGould examined their statistical methodology and found it too lacking in precision and accuracy But he finds their solutions completely abhorrent They actually write in The Bell Curve that those with lower Is should be placed in a custodial state a high tech and lavish version of the Indian reservation for some substantial minority of the nation's population while the rest of America tries to go about its business Do you suppose they would let them have guns or TV's? Gould uotes John Stuart Mill; The tendency has always been strong to believe that whatever received a name must be an entity or being having an existence of its own And if no real entity answering to the name could be found men did not for that reason suppose that none existed but imagined that it was something particularly abstruse and mysterious And Gould ends his review; How strange that we would let a single and false number I divide us when evolution has united all people in the recency of our common ancestry thus undergirding with a shared humanity that infinite variety which custom can never state E pluribus unumInterestingly there is a very revealing piece of data contained in Appendix 5 of The Bell Curve and yes I have read the book and that is the results of ACT SAT and GRE scores of whites and blacks between T 970 and 1990 Blacks score on average generally lower than whites but what is interesting is that the difference has narrowed Overall the evidence seems clear beyond a reasonable doubt the narrowing was achieved because black scores rose than white scores not because white scores were falling That would seem to provide evidence that perhaps some of the social tinkering may have been working contrary to Murray's thesis in Losing Ground a book he published some years ago that was an indictment of the welfare system as a failure Murray and Herrnstein make some statements in The Bell Curve that made me wonder about their cognitive ability For example on page 201 they state; Going on welfare really is a dumb idea and that is why women who are low in cognitive ability end up there; but also such women have little to take to the job market and welfare is one of their few appropriate recourses when they have a baby and no husband to help So I guess it was pretty smart huhA recent study that bears on the problems raised by Herrnstein and Murray reports that many children suffer permanent intellectual damage before they enter first grade Neuroscientists now believe that a child's future intellectual growth is shaped during these years by the kind of stimulation a child gets The child's brain can only become organized and make associations if stimulated early in life which makes the role of the parent crucial Studies done on kittens where one eye was sutured shut we'll discuss cruelty in laboratory experiments in another issue and then returned to a normal sensory world left the kittens now permanently blind In 1991 53 percent of all women with one year old babies were in the workforce up from 17 percent in 1965 and nearly half of the children under three were being looked after by someone other than their parents The report Starting Points; Meeting the Needs of Our Youngest Children Carnegie Corporation 1994 cites studies that show the care infants and toddlers get is often of such substandard uality that it adversely affects their development The most discouraging aspect suggests that there may be little that educators and parents can do after age three There may be a permanent gap between youngsters who have had the stimulation necessary to their mental development and those who have not no matter what schools and teachers do And' of course since they would never take I tests that early the differences in I may stem from early deprivation of stimulation rather than an innate cognitive difference yet the outcome may be depressingly similarCont in the next comment Goodreads doesn't like my verbose reviews
