Why IQ in Different Races is Irrelevant

1,312 words

Much is often made in the movement about the different levels of IQ between races. I suspect it has a lot to do with the Extreme Left’s denial of biological difference when it comes to intelligence.The standard social justice warrior’s cognitive dissonance informs him (check for correct pronoun) that we are different on the outside, therefore we are the same on the inside. It has therefore become almost a default Rightist position to argue over who trumps who as regards intelligence quotients. While there can be no doubt that those on the Right are, factually, well, right, I also, however, see this as rather an unhelpful distraction from the real issues regarding race, which I will outline here.

The truth of racial difference in IQ is as well-known as it is suppressed. I do not wish to go into it here, but those who are unfamiliar with it can easily research the scientific work of Richard Lynn, James Watson, Helmuth Nyborg, Satoshi Kanazawa, and J. Philippe Rushton, among others. The bell curve of IQs with respect to the various races is given below. As a racialist, however, their work means little to me outside of a passing interest. Why so? Well, if one thinks about it, their assertions are only relevant to the so-called “civic nationalist,” because their argument is that the people immigrating into the Occident from the Third World are incompatible due to the industrial nature of Occidental life requiring higher mental capabilities.

This means it follows that non-whites with higher IQs immigrating into the Occident is perfectly acceptable. Indeed, the likes of the ubiquitous Tommy Robinson and Milo say just that. And this is the reason they are pushed as the voices of dissent in the media — because they do not represent real dissent. Real dissent would be that the races of men are fundamentally different in mentality, regardless of IQ. How so? Well, to illustrate what I mean, I will take a very high-IQ Negro as a case study, in this case, the “French” politician Rama Yade, pictured above.

Rama Yade was born in Senegal, is ethnically Lebou, and has typically Lebou physical characteristics: tall, slender by sub-Saharan African standards, very dark-skinned, with a longer rather than rounded face with high cheekbones and a high forehead. Both her parents were professors from the upper-middle class, her father also having been a diplomat and personal secretary to Senegalese president Léopold Sédar Senghor. She thus comes from good stock as regards intelligence, which supports the societal bell curve observed by Richard J. Herrnstein and Charles Murray in social class upon which the racial bell curve is based. Her high intelligence was demonstrated when she studied in a classe préparatoire at school and got into one of the grands établissements, which is where the intellectual elite go in France, as opposed to the universities. She qualified in political science and on merit, for the exams in these institutions are very demanding — even the entrance exams to actually get into one.

The ideal situation would have been for her to return to Senegal and be a credit to her own people, but her parents had also later immigrated to France. Yade embraced the false god of multiculturalism, with all of its inherent contradictions. It had not helped that Senegal’s aforementioned president Senghor had married a white Frenchwoman, nor that she had been born into a Muslim family, attended Catholic School, and finally married a Jew. She has also tirelessly campaigned for the interests of minority groups against the interests of the white French — and this while also in the UMP, France’s allegedly conservative party. She has libelled and slandered her truly conservative peers and has been sued and convicted for her antics. Her high IQ has, then, been used to destabilize French society and promote disintegration and undermine cohesion.

Are there, then, any ethnically Others who can integrate into white European societies? The simple answer is no. Their Otherness will always be a barrier because of intrinsic difference. Merely because a Negro, Oriental, or Jew has a high IQ does not mean that he thinks more like a white European. The irony is that a libertarian is more a racial supremacist than a White Nationalist in this regard, because his assumption is that his society is universally and objectively the best and can be bestowed upon the “right kind of ethnic minorities.” He then seeks to cheat Nature by creating an artificial society of high-IQ individuals. But a high-IQ Negro still thinks like a Negro and a low-IQ white European still thinks like a white European, and given a racially homogeneous society dictated by Natural Order, each race will form a pyramidal society where everyone has their place and can find contentment.

Can I prove all this? Well yes, quite easily — with aesthetics and religion. This is the very reason those ruling the Occident have sought to do away with aesthetics and religion, because the differences in traditional aesthetics and religion between racial groups prove racial difference in mentality. It follows that because people look different, they think differently and that this will be expressed in their art and spiritual discourse, of which art is in any case a part. Because we look different, we represent ourselves differently and our gods take different forms, as spiritual extensions of ourselves and our understanding of the forces of Nature. Why do the Abrahamic faiths forbid the graven image? It is because the Semitic god Yahweh wishes to be the only god, the ultimate globalist. This is why European aesthetics continued not because of Christianity, but in spite of it, and why ISIS destroy works of art from the ancient world. With indigenous art forms, the portraits of the self remind us of who we are and how we should look, for the first law of Nature is survival.

 

In the new globalized world of the Left, healthy norms of body shape, gender, and of course race are to be eschewed. This has led to mass discontentment, where Negresses are straightening their hair and wearing Caucasian hair extensions and white European women are tanning themselves and wearing dreadlocks. Negro men are displaying the worst criminal behavior in rejection of an alien quasi-European society, while whites become wiggers in imitation of this behavior that is pushed as cool through MTV and Hollywood. And black conservatives try to act white and white Leftists end up like Rachel Dolezal.

To return to the question of IQ, the artist has until recently been of high intelligence. Yet to allow a True Artist into the fold from another race would be disastrous, for he would reshape the understanding of the world in his own image. This is the same to a lower level with lower-IQ individuals. Everyone has an understanding of the world that is normative to him, based upon his own ethnic tradition. What multiculturalism borne of multiracialism does is to replace this logos (which is not universal, but ethnic) with a constantly shifting schizophrenic chaos. The Left do not dispute this and their art is its confirmation. Witness the latest trend of transcultural literature, such as that by the author Julya Rabinowich below:

This sort of literature focuses on the typical SJW Leftist obsessions with the struggles with the very problems those Leftists themselves have artificially caused, in this case the schizoid nature of multiracialism and multiculturalism within a single human being. This is the insanity and nastiness of the Left, that in their promotion of miscegenation, they would subject people to this completely unnecessarily and find amusement and titillation in their condition. If moderate liberals cannot care for their own people, at least spare a thought for Rama Yade’s daughter: half-Negro, half-Jew, growing up in a nominally European society, high-IQ . . . and completely and utterly mad.

    Good article. Yes, IQ difference is not nearly as important as the racial difference. We like to point out the average IQ difference, because it is a solid scientific point, and because the leftist academics experience high blood pressure the more we go on about it. It is a small victory in the midst of our daily beat down. Ultimately, the left does not care. They are now attacking the validity of IQ tests, despite still using IQ results for other legitimate purposes (a diagnosis of mental retardation will prevent one from facing the death penalty – IQ matters in that case).

    The fact that multiculturalism just does not work is also something that can be quantified, but once again the left, even the most academic among them, simply do not give a rat’s ass. They are driven by greed and cowardice. Jews are driven by the Jewish group evolutionary strategy. We easily develop an over dependence on things like IQ scores and arguments about different average crime rates. As George Lincoln Rockwell stated, no amount of pretty language will help us, this a war. It is racial loyalty and honor that matter most.

    There is much relating to the mind that is not measured by IQ tests, leading to vast mental differences even among people of the same race with the same IQ. So the mental dimension of race involves differences that we are not yet fully able to calculate or comprehend. For our physical being we refer to our phenotypes, a very simple matter for almost everyone, and for our mental being we should refer to our extended phenotypes, the societies, cultures and civilizations we have built and all the achievements associated with them.

    That said, I would like to know the source of the graph comparing the bell curves of the different races. This is information I’ve been seeking for a generation, specifically as it relates to Asians. I used to ask J.P. Rushton about this every time I saw him, and he never had an answer. He knew what the different racial averages were, but I was asking for the racial differences in IQ distribution (e.g., what proportion over 115, 130, 145, etc.), which relates to standard deviations. He always said he didn’t know and it got to the point he actually started to avoid me.

    What information I have found over the decades all tends to indicate that the Asian IQ distribution or bell curve is not shaped like ours, but clusters much more toward the mean, spiking more in the center, with smaller standard deviations, resulting in smaller proportions at both the high and low ends.

    If a credible source has been found addressing this question I would like to know about it.

    There is another phenomenon that I am constantly looking for, more of a hope really. I am hoping that as the danger increases that we will observer white females have large numbers of children without consulting with their significant other. Sort of like Salmon swimming upstream to spawn. If you asked them why they do it, they would reply; “I don’t know, I just want to.” I am hoping that some biological instinct will kick in to save us.

    To make the argument for racial separation, Frank Salter’s ethnic genetic interests are key.

    it’s fine and good to discuss the numerous psychological differences between the races, but then there will always be outliers who can be used against your position.

    Ultimately we need no justification for preferring our own and wanting collectively to remain in existence. to expect us to define what makes us “special” and therefore deserving of not being genocided is absolute foul play and needs to be called out when our enemies try getting cute in such fashion.

    What I like to do is ask people if they have children or would like to have them. If they say yes, I ask if they have a preference for those children to be their own biological kin, or would they just as soon adopt? Then I draw the obvious parallel.

    Whilst teaching I came across a very dark skinned boy of Ethiopean origin, his I.Q. had been measured by the School at 70. Despite a tendency towards hyperactivity, combined with a low animal cunning, he functioned perfectly adequately on a practical day to day basis. My guess is that had he been a White boy his low I.Q. would have made him dysfunctional. My conclusion was that because he’d evolved racially within his own group the factors which helped him function as a human being, despite his low I.Q., were different from those that would have been required of a White boy.

      blacks do everything as a herd, whites sometimes overlook the complexities of their societies, I would say white societies are more simplistic, the majority of the work gets done by the individual, but the africans are egalitarians and the ones that are as smart as a bucket of nails still can get from the tribe everything they need to reproduce… they always marry first cousins from the fathers side, that might have something to do with why the IQ stays low but the alpha male spark stays alive.

    The Jews are hybrids, and they have a fascination for blacks. I have hypotheses, not based on research, but long years of observation, musing over this phenomenon. I have a hypotheses that races have a genetic default inclination switch in each individual. Thus, in the Jews we see a large number of men who pursue, and idolize the black female. They are trying to go home!

      Jews’ apparent love for blacks and hispanics is paradoxical, and I have wrestled with it too. Blacks are low IQ, uncultured, violent, everything antithetical to Jewish. The best answer I can come up with is that blacks and hispanics are not and never will be competitors for elite status.

    Yes. The average IQ’s of the different races is of passing interest, but those who obsess over it might like to visit the northern suburbs of Sydney, Australia and witness the displacement of the white Australian community by high IQ East Asians. The visit might then extend to any of Australia’s top universities or selective high schools.
    Give me a nation states that looks after the dumbest of our own tribe over high IQ foreigners any day. The obsession with average racial IQ’s is – like any lingering preference for ‘capitalism’ – baggage of the old, Readers Digest Right that should be consigned to the dustbin of history.

      Very insightful and trenchant observations! Completely agreed. Though IQ is an important weighing factor, it is not absolute. Genuine racialism and nationalism is about distinctiveness, tradition, identity and racial-national mentality, all beyond the concept of IQ itself. And as astutely pointed out, too much attachment to and care about IQ is a reflection of a capitalist and civic understanding, which is contrary and detrimental to the authentic nationalist cause, not withstanding Whites are indeed and on average the most intelligent and creative race on earth, while East Asians are admittedly intelligent too, but more in a rote-based, stable but far less brilliant way.

    I agree that IQ, even though measurable, is another red herring. It doesn’t get to the essential point that both inwardly and outwardly, the peoples of this world are different. IQ is a distraction for racially aware people, and a point of attack for the jewish and multiracial cosmopolitan order, who will either say IQ doesn’t matter or is a false test, or will affirm it and say that means we need to do everything to help the low IQ races.

    When it comes to blacks, I simply can’t stand them, viscerally, and I suspect this would be true even if they were intelligent.

    On the other hand, there are many low IQ whites and asians, as an example, who are tolerable as long as their passions are restrained, and they are put to some good use or another.

    You are vastly underestimating the extent of the cultural marxist brainwashing across the Western world. Young people, the ones we need to reach, are constantly bombarded with anti-racism lessons throughout their school life and in every form of entertainment they consume. The IQ research is not only suppressed, but demonized and misrepresented as junk science. The average person has no idea who any of those people are. The only reason the average Joe would look into them is because WE expose them to their work.

    Well, if one thinks about it, their assertions are only relevant to the so-called “civic nationalist,” […]

    Ok, but wouldn’t most people fall into that category? Civic nationalist is just another term for multiculturalist. That IQ plays a major role in life outcomes is perhaps the single most powerful argument we have when dealing with multiculturalists. It addresses not only the immigration issue, but skewers the howls of systemic white supremacy every time a non-Asian non-white performs badly in school (or life in general).

    Further, regression to the mean can be used to argue against allowing in the high IQ outliers, as even when geniuses marry geniuses they tend to have children with lower IQ than their parents. After a few generations the children show the same tendencies as the group average. Case in point: 2nd and 3rd generation Pakistani muslims are MORE radicalized than their parents.

    I think your argument is that we need to address the fact that immigrant groups tend to vote as a bloc, and I agree. It initially sounds like a contradiction, but individualist liberties only seem to persist in homogeneous societies. The point that large groups of immigrants tend not to assimilate has been made by the likes of Taylor. He often asks interviewers and listeners to perform the thought experiment of how well they themselves would assimilate when moving to a country with very different values, religions, and politics.

      “That IQ plays a major role in life outcomes is perhaps the single most powerful argument we have when dealing with multiculturalists.”

        I believe it works because most people, despite all of the indoctrination to the contrary, secretly hold onto some doubts about everyone being functionally interchangeable. They have been cowed into never admitting it, and indeed denying it if the subject comes up, but I think deep down they aren’t 100% convinced.

        When one learns that there is a mountain of data suggesting intellectual and behavioral differences across the races, which has been locked tight and out of sight, it can quickly unravel a lifetime of lies as it explains so much about the world we live in.

        I say this with personal experience. Like many people I didn’t really believe everyone was perfectly equal, but I didn’t necessarily understand why we see such huge differences in accomplishment or the kinds of societies they build. I was the type that was glad to see Obama elected and watched the Daily Show without a hint of disgust.

        • Posted September 25, 2017 at 2:01 am | Permalink

          Many thanks for sharing your personal experience, Mr. Bottom. It is of much interest to me. I admit that, due to my own personal constitution, I have been sometimes skeptical about the efficacy of the “IQ approach to red-pilling.” If you don’t mind my asking—would you say you are particularly scientifically-minded?

          Pardon if this seems like prying, Mr. Bottom. That is really not at all my intent. It only seems to me that the more we know about how we all have arrived here, the more effectively we can plot our course forward.

          In my own case, for instance, I do not believe that the IQ argument alone would have convinced me to become active on Counter-Currents. I am much more persuaded by the kind of arguments which are offered in the article above. I am thus particularly curious about people who came here via other roads.

    What a fine, juicy article. Not only should prowhites stop fixating on IQ, they should just look at the entire person. I can honestly say that a rather considerable portion of the high-IQ folks I personally know, or have been told about, have less common sense than your average 7 year old. They can be so useless and stupid in some areas that it is embarrassing to behold.

    Now, about your statement and given a racially homogeneous society dictated by Natural Order, each race will form a pyramidal society where everyone has their place and can find contentment.

    Sorry, but that has a utopian aroma. The reality is that even in the most mono-ethnic, mono-religious, mono-linguistic society, where things are unfolding organically, you will have plenty of disgruntlement. Some will never be happy at all. That’s not the way things work, neither would it be a desirable state of affairs anyway.

      I think he’s actually on to something. Humans did not survive/evolve by operating as atomized individuals but as parts of larger communities which have always been hierarchical. Therefore, in order for a society or nation to flourish it should not only be ethnically homogeneous, but also contain all of that ethnic group’s strata, including the bottom. This reminds me of a thought I had with respect to the Jewish Question (it may not be an original thought, but it was for me): I once read an article on an alt right(ish) website that provided a compelling theory for the high ashkenazi IQ which stated that for some time after the death of Christ, there was a culling of a the lower classes of ethnic Jews from the Jewish faith. These were people for whom the strict educational requirements of Judaism (learning to read and study the Torah) were too burdensome so they converted to Christianity (which after all , started as a sort of populist socialist workers movement “first shall be last…”). If this is true, then for quite a long time the Jews have been operating as a sort of “stranded elite,” not only without their own land (prior to modern Israel) but also missing their (essential) bottom strata. I think this would explain a lot.

    Rama Yada reminds me a great deal of Cécile Kyenge, who cannot be a stupid woman to have learned Italian as well as she has. She entered into the Italian government, and through it into the European, and—surprise of surprises—has done nothing in either post save agitate for the good of her African brethren.

    I agree entirely with the author that differences in measurable intelligence are but a single significant factor, of a great many, in what make for racial differences, and that certain other of these factors—in particular, the cultural factor, understood in its highest sense—are of much greater importance. I also agree that an excessive preoccupation with measurable intelligence as the paramount standard for determining social order is bound to lead to problems.

    The focus on IQ in certain parts of the Right seems to me first and foremost an attempt to break through the egalitarian myth by means of hard facts and science. The trouble is that most human beings do not adhere to their worldviews because of facts and science, but rather because of values; values are precedent to and determinant of facts for most human beings in most situations. For this reason, the attempt to “disprove equality” is bound to end in failure, save as it is supplemented with other efforts.

    “Aesthetics and religion,” as the author calls them, will ever be the more important questions; and neither science nor “facts” no “IQ” begin to get to the heart of them.

    It’s absolutely imperative to understand the racial differences regarding IQ. We must learn to understand why our enemy thinks and acts the way they do. We must ascertain that for many of these races their cognitive and intellectual perception matches that of a 14 year old white boy. Imagine yourself at 14. Aggressive and confused behavior, tentative grasp of technical and complicated information. In general a severe lack of understanding at a cognitive level that full grown adult white males acquire with age and maturity. Genetics is always the over-arching conflict at play here.

    People collectively build their culture through their collective abilities as a race of people. Genetics is the foundation of that. To say it is irrelevant is as asinine as it is naive. It is imperative we understand every concept and we are able to perceive every perception in order to hold an intellectual edge over our enemies in this struggle. That very much includes having extensive knowledge of genetic and racial questions.

      You are onto something important here. I think we should talk more about physical attractiveness as a difference. I think I heard David Duke mention it briefly, and in a couple of articles. It is of profound importance. The egalitarian side does not like us talking about looks, and they really want to live in pretend land by pushing for blacks to win beauty contests and dwelling on why movies with blacks do not do as well as those with whites. We are indeed the sexiest people. It is a very neglected topic.

    Obviously I agree with the author that IQ alone is insufficient for the basis of ethnic/racial nationalism, because there are unintelligent whites and intelligent non-whites, and we want to include the former and exclude the latter. But it hardly follows from this that it is irrelevant.
    Firstly, it has huge apologetic power. One can make a very strong, purely factual case for it. Once someone has broken through something as deeply ingrained as the taboo of group differences in IQ, it’s likely they won’t have a problem rejecting all of the other liberal shibboleths as well.
    Secondly, IQ differences have explanatory power. It’s necessary to (partially) explain why some groups are more succesful than others and to debunk the lies about white privilege etc.
    Thirdly, its the reason (again, partially) for European accomplishments. I’d want to preserve our people even without these, but they are certainly of value in themselves.

    Are there, then, any ethnically Others who can integrate into white European societies? The simple answer is no. Their Otherness will always be a barrier because of intrinsic difference. Merely because a Negro, Oriental, or Jew has a high IQ does not mean that he thinks more like a white European

    It’s also clearly untrue that there are no non-whites who talk and act just like some white people and I don’t see any reason to suppose that there aren’t some non-whites who don’t think like some white people too. Although I agree that (because of genetic differences) different racial groups are disposed to think differently, the range of thought within each range is so vast that it’s absurd to claim that a non-white has never thought in the same way as any white person. The author refutes his own point later by mentioning white people who assimilate downwards into black norms.
    Also, as a matter of psychological fact, high-IQ people (even from different races) will generally think and act more like one another.
    This doesn’t mean that they should stay though. It just means that our rejection of multi-racialism should be based on a desire to preserve our own people and the fact that multi-racialism is incompatible with that. No additional reason is necessary.

    Can I prove all this? Well yes, quite easily — with aesthetics and religion. This is the very reason those ruling the Occident have sought to do away with aesthetics and religion, because the differences in traditional aesthetics and religion between racial groups prove racial difference in mentality. It follows that because people look different, they think differently and that this will be expressed in their art and spiritual discourse, of which art is in any case a part. Because we look different, we represent ourselves differently and our gods take different forms, as spiritual extensions of ourselves and our understanding of the forces of Nature.

    What absolute drivel. Does the author really expect us to believe (without even the nicety of presenting any evidence at all), that differences in how people think depends upon differences in how they look rather than differences in their brains? I’m not even sure what the mechanism being supposed here is; did the Jews look at each others big noses and curly black hair and think about a single, formless God, while the Aryans looked at each other’s blonde hair and came up with multiple Gods? How do slanty eyes result in Taoism exactly?

    This nonsense is an embarrassment to the nationalist cause.

      I think the author meant it as a rhetorical counterpoint to the those in the pro-White cause who obsess about and fetishize IQ. Yes IQ differences have important societal implications, but ultimately they’re not what we’re about. The fact that East Asians have higher average IQs than Whites doesn’t mean we should allow them to flood into our countries and ingrain themselves in our institutions. And even if White people were the dumbest people on the planet, we’d still be fighting for them, because they’re ours. That’s it. So ultimately IQ doesn’t matter to us politically, even if we can recognize its importance on the success of a society and can serve as a good talking point. Our folk is what matters most. In the end, we need no other justification for that.

    So true. The various races are just alien to each other, period. Of course, IQ differences can exacerbate some of the problems (ie Africans too low-IQ to compete in an advanced nation and thus driven even more strongly towards their high time preference, impulsiveness, and tendency to violence, redoubling their already high crime rates). But the Chinaman, or Korean, despite being quite intelligent, cannot be a German or an Englishman; he simply doesn’t think the same way.
