Race And Intelligence: A Wrap

Dec 5 2011 @ 12:28pm

The most recent Dish thread on race and IQ can be read in chronological order here, here, here, here, here, here and here. Final exchange with Ta-Nehisi here and here. We didn't have room to accommodate the flood of dissents and counter-dissents from the in-tray, many of which have been aired in the past, but we did provide an unfiltered forum over at our Facebook page, which has over 100 entries so far. For readers whose emails didn't get posted on the Dish, we encourage you to copy-and-paste parts of them on the FB page to get your voices heard.

For a comprehensive look back at coverage on the Dish over the years, follow the links below.

Basic pros and cons of the IQ issue here. Debate sparked by James Watson's 2007 controversial comments here, here, here and here. Another sparked by a May 2010 email from a Harvard Law student here, here, here, here, here and here. On the Jewish connection here. Some data from Science Times here. An array of commentary from bloggers and readers here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

I think the marginal returns of continuing to wrangle over this on the Dish have rapidly diminished and I think TNC's and my resolution should conclude this discussion. But one of the cool things about our newly energized Facebook page (thanks, Chris) is that you can carry on the debate if you so wish. (You can even comment on why we don't have a comments section.)
