Examining Pseudo Race IQ Theories (Part 1)
By Brother Saye

In America, you have a large portion of the population who see themselves as conservative. In recent years, terms like, “Alt-Right” and “Tea Party Patriot,” are embraced by many who relate to right wing politics. There are two major arguments often heralded by these individuals, which I would like to examine.

Why do conservative politicians, and their supporters, often complain about government spending allocated towards job training and educational programs, in low income communities? There is also the issue of denouncing "Affirmative Action" as reverse discrimination. This is part one of multiple articles that will explain the root cause of these complaints.

Many White nationalists and suspected White supremacists do not believe that a Black person with a college degree deserves the same merit as White person with a college degree. They believe Whites, in general, test better than 84% of the Black population. They believe this is displayed in the workplace and throughout life. They argue that Whites with higher cognitive intelligence, who are not financially well off, are at a major disadvantage of being left behind and out of the equation; due to affirmative action. From their perspective, affirmative action selects Blacks and Latino’s with lower cognitive intelligence over White students who are smarter and more intelligent.

The reason conservative politicians don't support social programs is because they see it as wasting money. They see most Blacks as people with a low IQ. They are under the assumption, that Blacks “in general” have an IQ of 85 and below. They figure, social and work programs will not work, because the people they are created to assist are just too stupid to comprehend the training, based on their lack of cognitive intelligence. They back this idea from reading books like "The Bell Curve" by Charles Murray. Their logic on average is that Blacks only test better than 16% of the White population. Many will not say this publicly, but these are the views that help them govern, and make social & political decisions.

Along with the views shared above, many in the dominate society embrace the following perspectives below.

1) Their analysis is that Ashkenazi Jews “on average” have the highest IQ around 110-115, East Asians at 105, Whites follow at 100, Hispanics at 89, Western & American Blacks at 85, and Black Africans at 70.

2) They argue that there are 38 million Blacks in America, and that around 100,000 Blacks Americans have a 125 IQ or higher. They claim this creates an illusion that Blacks share the same cognitive intelligence on average as Whites. Their argument is that an overwhelming majority of Black Americans have a lower cognitive intelligence. (85 IQ)

3) They argue that “circumstantial” evidence shows that the cognitive elite are passing people by with limited cognitive abilities, and that people who are intellectually challenged, “Blacks,” would be better off in a separate more accommodating society.

4) They are tired of liberal politicians who continue to give incentives to people “Blacks” who are intellectually challenged, to produce more children, when they should actually be creating incentives for people with higher cognitive intelligence, to reproduce instead.

Who’s promoting pseudo IQ race theories?

Interesting Things to Know

Wickliffe Draper (August 9, 1891 – 1972) was an American multimillionaire and philanthropist. He was an ardent eugenicist and lifelong advocate of strict racial segregation. In 1937, he founded the Pioneer Fund, a registered charitable organization established to provide scholarships for descendants of original white American settlers and to support research into heredity and eugenics; he later became its principal benefactor. - Wikipedia

Pioneer Fund started in 1937 by Wickliffe Draper. The Pioneer Fund's original mandate was to pursue "race betterment" by promoting the genetic stock of those "deemed to be descended predominantly from white persons who settled in the original thirteen states prior to the adoption of the Constitution." – SPLC

Nearly all the research that Murray and Herrnstein relied on for their central claims about race and IQ was funded by the Pioneer Fund, described by the London Sunday Telegraph (3/12/89) as a “neo-Nazi organization closely integrated with the far right in American politics.” The fund’s mission is to promote eugenics, a philosophy that maintains that “genetically unfit” individuals or races are a threat to society. – FAIR 1995

The Bell Curve cites as its primary sources for this assertion, R. Travis Osborne, Frank C.J. McGurk and Audrey Shuey — all recipients of Pioneer Fund grants. Osborne, who has received almost $400,000 from Pioneer, used his “research” into black genetic inferiority to argue for the restoration of school segregation. (Newsday, 11/9/94)

Richard Lynn has received at least $325,000 from the Pioneer Fund.

(Rolling Stone, 10/20/94)

The Bell Curve is connected to the anti-immigrant movement. The Federation for American Immigration Reform received more than $1 million from the Pioneer Fund - getting the organization off the ground. (See Extra! 7-8/93.)

Pioneer Fund also funded the American Immigration Control Foundation; a White nationalist’s organization, whose work is cited by Murray and Herrnstein.

Charles Murray’s “The Bell Curve.” promotes conservative efforts to drastically restrict job training, social programs, and welfare spending. The Bell Curve uses eugenic justification to scrap welfare.

“The United States already has policies that inadvertently social-engineer who has babies and it is encouraging the wrong women ... We urge that these policies, represented by the extensive network of cash and services for low-income women who have babies, be ended.” - The Bell Curve

What is Eugenics?

Eugenics is a selective way of improving the genetic quality of the human population. The exact definition of eugenics is not consensus. Frederick Osborn's definition is as a social philosophy—that is, a philosophy with implications for social order. FYI - This definition is not universally accepted.

Osborn advocated for higher rates of sexual reproduction among people with desired traits (positive eugenics), or reduced rates of sexual reproduction and sterilization of people with less-desired or undesired traits (negative eugenics). Alternatively, gene selection rather than "people selection" has recently been made possible through advances in genome editing. – Wikipedia

What is IQ?

IQ, or intelligence quotient, is a compiled score from several standardized tests, created to assess human intelligence.

Commonly used individual IQ tests are the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale for adults and the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children for school-age test-takers.
