Jason Richwine business is something else. Now, I could dip back into my archives on race regarding Murray, Sullivan, and Pat Buchanan, and just generally reiterate my disgust with the persistence of race-based theories of IQ and the staggering privilege it takes to utilize that theme as if presenting something bold or useful when it's more like 'in-your-face" and "self-serving" pretty much all the time.
But I will now chill, because the line of reasoning that Richwine is peddling does have a pedigree in conservative circles from time immemorial (aha--this is a useful meme!) Or rather, we remember the time, but I think I'll refrain from going there. Such lines of reasoning still being too much with us and all that.
