Frank Borzellieri and the Death of Free Speech

Jack Kerwick, Townhall, February 18, 2015

Back in 2011, Frank Borzellieri was terminated from his position as principal of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, a predominantly black and Hispanic Catholic elementary school located in the Bronx, New York. The Daily News charged Borzellieri with “white supremacy,” the Church to which Borzellieri devoted his life upheld the conviction, and that was that.

Yet the charge was baseless and the conviction cruelly unjust.

Borzellieri is the author of six books, some of which treat racial and cultural issues. His great sin seems to consist in the fact that he dared to note that there are interracial IQ differences that correlate to some extent with other social indicia.

In this, however, he joins every other scientist who takes this data for granted. To name just a few examples:

The Bell Curve authors, Charles Murray, an American Enterprise Institute Scholar and the 2009 recipient of the Irving Kristol Award, and the late Richard Herrnstein, a Harvard professor; MIT scientist and best-selling author Steven Pinker; and Thomas Sowell, the black “conservative” economist, nationally-syndicated columnist, and Hoover Institution fellow have been saying for decades nothing particularly different from anything that Borzellieri has written.

Yet the notion that Borzellieri is any sort of “supremacist” is patently absurd on its face.

Borzellieri chose–he chose–to ply his craft as an educator tending to the needs of New York City’s black and Hispanic students. He was also elected thrice to the New York City school board where he resisted efforts to replace literature on such Western heroes as Columbus and Washington with a curriculum requiring children to read books on homosexuality, masturbation, abortion, and birth control.

But Borzellieri must believe in “white supremacy,” his accusers contend, because he had at one time associated with Jared Taylor’s American Renaissance (AR), an organization that routinely explores the ways in which race and IQ intersect with all manner of other cultural phenomena.

And anyone who mentions race and IQ, or who associates with those who do so, must be a “white supremacist.”


AR has been around since 1990. In 1999, seven talk radio hosts were interviewed for its January issue. All seven acknowledged the same interracial IQ differences to which Borzellieri alludes–even if some of them were non-committal when it came to rival theses that seek to account for these differences. So, who were these hosts?

Michael Reagan, son of President Ronald Reagan; Michael Medved; the legendary New York City host, Bob Grant; David Brudnoy; Al Rantel; “The Black Avenger,” Ken Hamblin; and “the Sage from South Central,” Larry Elder, shared their thoughts on race, IQ, crime, immigration–both legal and illegal–race consciousness, affirmative action, welfare, etc.

Are these whites and blacks, Christians, Jews, and agnostics, “white supremacists?”


Prior to Borzellieri’s reversal of fortunes, his work was showcased in a range of prominent publications, including Newsday, USA Today, The Guardian, and even the Daily News. He also made frequent guest appearances on numerous radio and television shows, from the Fox News Sunday Morning Show to the programs of Sean Hannity, Alan Colmes, and Geraldo Rivera.

Today, Borzellieri lives a lonelier–and dramatically harder–existence. The man who wants for nothing more than to resume his duties as an educator is jobless. Branded with the “R” label, he’s been shut out in the cold.

Mike Abel, the caretaker of an orthodox church, has started a “Go Fund Me” page for Borzellieri. Please consider helping this casualty of Political Correctness.

As Mike Abel says, Borzellieri could be any of us.

    Frank is a gutsy guy. I hope he’s doing OK?

    • AndrewInterrupted

      Obviously Frank will have to change his field. I’m sure that has
      occurred to him by now, though. Does he have family? Siblings?

  • Dave Agema is in more “hot water” for linking to Allen West’s article linking to “Confessions of a Public Defender” here on AR than Allen West is for linking to it to begin with.

    • GeneticsareDestiny

      That’s because it’s fine for blacks to notice things. It’s only evil when white people do it. That’s why Allen West, as well as other blacks who notice things (like Thomas Sowell), don’t get eviscerated by the mainstream media.

    • Anna Tree

      Free Speech is now only for non-whites.

      • BloodofAlbion75

        It’s too bad that the vast majority of them don’t share the same kind of reverence for it that us Whites do.

        • Anna Tree

          “Throwing pearls to the swine”
          Free speech is now only for non-whites, but indeed, soon, to no one because indeed most non-whites don’t/can’t comprehend why/what is Freedom of Speech.

          It is not to have the right to say what you want, but to give the other the right to say what they want: the minute they didn’t let someone say what he wants (that about the Holocaust or race, about homosexuality or islam etc), Free Speech died. It has to be absolute to exist. But maybe like other jewels/fruits of the White Civilization, it can only work in a homogeneous and maybe white country. And yes free (white countries are no more free, for some time now, as I hint in my previous parenthesis) Indeed there were and would be lies and libels, but rare and refuted. In other countries, they didn’t and still don’t have the patience, the will, the respect etc to let their dissidents express themselves.

          I don’t think they understand what is the Freedom of Speech or they would have fight somewhere somehow for it. No, only whites do and did. Same with freedom of association, the right of self-determination etc
          I presume DNA again. Evolution 101 again.

          • Fr. John+

            This is the point, Anna, that needs to be made. Until and unless we can have a WHITES-ONLY COUNTRY, (even at the level of a civil conflict) the heresy of multiculturalism and the joining of all and sundry to follow the ‘Woman astride the Beast’ in this blasphemy, will continue. [And if the beast is EUropa, then the Whore is Rome- just saying…] Mr. B still (I am assuming, not being of that syna- errr, ‘church’ [Rev. 3:8,9]) thinks and worships as a Novus Ordo RC- but, with Franky the Last as current pontiff, his p.o.v. is no longer ‘orthodox,’ and he needs to ‘come out of her.’ Also, living/remaining in NY state, rather than, say moving to Montana, is the folly of his position.

            The chimera of racial inequality, AND the folly of ‘caring for the lesser races’ is utterly and completely masochistic- it’s intellectual scizophrenia, times ten. Borzellieri wants to be a martyr, it appears. Instead of that, have him repent of his ‘sins’ of ‘racism,’ and join the Whites who no longer see this ‘sin’ as a sin, but as the normal functioning of a healthy race/society/culture/Christendom, and move on. That, I believe, is what this man should do. But, sadly, it appears (as Cambria will not yield writes in his blog)

            “…a European becomes something worse than a pagan if he is only an intellectual Christian. What is an intellectual Christian? An intellectual Christian is Pope John tendering his “loving forgiveness” to the black savages who raped, tortured, and murdered his people. It is John Paul II condemning abortion with one breath and then praising feminism with the next breath. It is all the white “Christians” who talk about “ecumenical jihads” and the dangers of a white, Euro-centered Christianity. If intellectual Christianity is the only Christianity, then Christ be not risen, because intellectual Christianity is a false, man-made faith.”


          • Anna Tree

            First let me say that it seems to me that Mr. Borzellieri is a race realist. I don’t think he chose to be one to become a martyr. To tell the truth should not be a brave thing to do or revolutionary but every century or so it become this indeed, and so eventually a crime.

            Now correct me if I am wrong, but it seems to me that you think he is a martyr because he wants to stay Catholic or teach in Catholic schools, that you think Catholicism itself but for surely its leadership is guilty, anti-white and pathological altruist and so white race realists should take heed.

            I think you are right and have brought good examples to support your claims. But I need to say then that most branches of Christianity also support multiculturalism and globalism, everybody is equal etc that Catholic churches, priests, followers and leadership do state similar things now.
            Jesus is great, but Christianity needs to be turned a white religion, things need to be clarified, if it wants, if we want it, to remain the white religion it was for centuries.

            When Mr. Borzelli was outed the second time, I commented on the article about it that he should indeed stop working for the Catholics and may be work for a Christian Orthodox schools that indeed are more traditional (read white) and could appreciate his views or at least not see them as heretic or crimes.

            I hope I understood what you meant and apologize if I didn’t.

          • Light from the East

            Don’t worry. As an Asian I can say something Whites are not allowed to say.

          • Anna Tree

            This is sadly true BUT quite only in white countries, isn’t it?

            I do hope you will use this right before it is too late. Remember that things can change very quickly: Whites had Freedom of Speech and many other freedoms and rights, after all our ancestors fought and died for us to have them.

            I don’t think I am asking you to be a martyr, it’s not there yet. Similarly I am a woman and I do use my “woman privilege” to say what I think is the truth about discrimination against (white) men or feminism.

      • LHathaway

        Wasn’t that a line (dripping with irony) in the film ‘Full-metal jacket’?

        “It’s like they took our freedom and gave it to the gookers”

  • LHathaway

    IQ tests do not necessarily measure innate learning ability. White IQ’s have gone up 15 points in less than a Century. IQ tests measure learning and it’s opposite: ignorance, close-mindedness, bigotry and a love of them; a propensity towards violence and racism. IQ tests really do measure intelligence, and it’s opposite, ignorance.

    • TomIron361

      IQ tests do not necessarily measure innate learning ability
      Nor do IQ tests measure shooting ability which is more or less all that will count in the not too distant future.

    • evilsandmich

      This gets trotted out every now and then: different types of IQ, different levels across factors other than race/sex. Even given conceding all of that (which I don’t), there’s only one type of IQ that one can make bank on and no one is interested in other kinds.

      For example, person B might be really smart (“smart”) at making rap music while person W is really smart at machining metal; guess who is going to try and use the government to steal from who.

      Anyway, this whole…trolling argument, is like listening to fat people who don’t like scales.

      • LHathaway

        How is stating fact and making observations ‘trolling’. The word ‘trolling’ by the way, is a hate term.

        • evilsandmich

          You say that higher IQs make for more awful people and that white IQs have gone up. Granted you are wrong about the former, but you intentionally meant it so that you could use it to insult the latter. I think I’m safe in calling that argument out for what it is.

          • LHathaway

            I was saying nice people, who are engaged with the outside world, will end up having higher IQ’s. Those who look more inward, only concerned about themselves, looking outward only for the joy to be found in bullying other people, will likely end up learning less and having a lower IQ score when tested. The only anecdotal evidence I can/could come up with, that those with a higher IQ are worse or more callous people, is that high IQs Asian will serve cats and dogs, supposedly, for dinner. That has nothing to do with anything I had said previously, just adding that in there. People can believe anything. I suspect the powers-that-be are counting on it.

          • Jesse_from_Sweden

            But the fact that cats and dogs shouldn’t be served for dinner is entirely based upon cultural values, not intelligence.
            There is nothing wrong about eating cats and dogs in itself, or with eating horses.
            But it has become taboo in the western world because these animals were seen as working animals whose value are higher when they are alive than the value of the meat they give.

            Asians, who doesn’t use dogs the way we in the west do (much less hunting, instead more communal rice growing), then naturally won’t put the same value on a dog.

            Because really, why is it OK to slaughter and eat a pig but not OK to do the very same thing to a dog?
            Emotional value based on historical and cultural context.

          • evilsandmich

            Jonah Goldberg (yeah, I know) has written about this and has pointed out that dogs have been bred to go “all-in” with man. Yeah some breeds are better than others and they can revert to form, but overall a dog will like a human even more so than their own kind. Cats on the other hand, those little bastards should be food 🙂

          • Jesse_from_Sweden

            Dogs are valued because of the labor they provide. And they are valued because of the investment in time and effort it costs to train them and to make them loyal to you.

            Cats are also valued for their labor, for the reduction in damage to stored food from rats and mice is worth far more than the meager amount of meat they give.

          • evilsandmich

            They’re both very poor stores of meat. That puzzles me more than anything when it comes to Koreans eating dog is that they have no land and they waste it on dogs when a pig (which they’re not shy about eating either) could give so much more meat. But yes I’ve heard that pigs are typically smarter than dogs and one of the reasons they make poor pets is that they can get a “I know better than you attitude”.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            Pigs are actually probably the smartest animal we routinely eat. They’re smarter than horses as well.

            Orwell picked pigs for a reason.

          • I have a feeling you already have, but if you havent googled it, the solution to very sparse land + eating dogs is basically horribly cramped, filthy cages stacked on top of each other. The Korean dog farmers are… despicable in their complete disregard for the welfare of the animals in their care.

            On the bright side, it’s a tradition (eating dog) which does seem to be slowly dying out, but then again, dog meat is one of the seemingly endless items which supposedly grants “stamina” which means it will likely take quite a long time to go away completely.

          • Puggg

            You say cats should be food?

            Your avatar.

          • evilsandmich

            I figured using a picture of a troll for an avatar would be a bit much 😉

          • 李冠毅

            I live in Asia and no, I’ve never tasted or even seen dogs and cats being served as food. That practice is no longer popular in our culture. In fact, our popular culture constantly portray those who eat dogs as despicable people (such as the popular Chinese comic Old Master Q).

        • Jesse_from_Sweden

          Trolling is not a hate term. Hate term on the other hand, is a hate term….

          Trolling just refers to people who intentionally post things just to rile up people and get upset responses.

          • LHathaway

            ‘trolling’ is the most offensive term someone can come up with when they want to lambast or criticize someone else.

          • I get the feeling that for someone to have such strong hatred for the term trolling, you must get accused of it an awful lot somewhere?

            But here at Amren, we know you’re not a troll, you’re just from outer space!

          • LHathaway


      • Jesse_from_Sweden

        What you are talking about is multiple intelligences theory.
        Something that was big and still is in certain circles.
        Mainly as a feel-good theory, since it means “everyone” can be smart in some way.

        In actuality, there is a severe lack of empirical evidence for the theory.

        Look it up on wikipedia, search for “Theory of multiple intelligences” and scroll down to “lack of empirical evidence”.
        And it pretty much says it all there. Those who like that theory tends to be those that doesn’t actually work with intelligence research.

        • evilsandmich

          Yeah that’s why I restated what I thought they were going for without conceding. But you’re right, it makes as much sense as “multiple strength” or “multiple hearing”, etc.

        • 李冠毅

          I’ve read a few books on this topic. Apparently, different cultures value different types of intelligence. Whereas Western and Asian cultures value mathematical and verbal skills (skills which allow one to score well on IQ tests), sub-Saharan African cultures tend to value knowledge on the local plant and animal life, and how to utilize them (stuff which doesn’t help on IQ tests). Many Western and Asian scientists who went to Africa for research often turn to the locals, who can often classify thousands of species of the local flora and fauna with greater ability than a biology professor. So, who do you think is more intelligent? A professor, who can do math and understand the cellular makeup of the organism, or a native who can classify many species of organisms and have extensive knowledge on how to harvest and use them to make herbs, tools, and so on? I believe we should not view intelligence as something which can be measured with a single number; to say one is “more intelligent” than someone from a different culture because of a higher IQ score is perhaps like saying one is an all-star in “sports”; there are many types of sports, including sprinting, long distance running and weight lifting, one can be good at one type while terrible at another. Of course, I’m not an intelligence researcher, so I could be wrong.

          • Jesse_from_Sweden

            But now you are mixing intelligence and knowledge.
            The two are not the same.
            Knowledge is often just memorized information, and is not the same thing as intelligence.

            So who is the most intelligent? A professor who can do math and understand the cellular makeup of an organism? Or someone who can memorize the book he will write about it?
            Memory is particularly valued in societies that have oral traditions.
            Which in many ways is a synonym for “societies that can’t read and write”…..

    • ElComadreja

      Well there’s certainly some kind of correlation between the low IQ of blacks and the failure of them to learn as a people despite trillions of dollars and decades of time thrown at the problem. Sometimes it’s better to admit failure and move on. Benign neglect might be one answer. Even in the isolated cases where they do learn all you get is a more intelligent hostile black.

  • JohnEngelman

    The truth hurts.

    • BloodofAlbion75

      Only for those who want to believe in lies.

  • Raymond Kidwell

    This is sort of the problem because there seems to be some kind of under current in sites like this that just don’t like black people (or other minorities like hispanic) and spend a lot of time talking about how stupid they are or how much they hate them (or dislike them) or how inferior they are etc. At the same time there are people who really don’t have a problem with other races, but may acknowledge that I.Q. differences exist for example. It seems like you end up getting lumped into one extreme or the other. American politics and ideology seems to have become about extremes and conflict now days.

    What you have are certain people with a lot of emotional attachment to a certain ideology, whether it be the Marxist or the White Nationalist. My comments or opinions would often be offensive to both groups. But you work for someone with this strong emotion and say or do the wrong thing and they attack you. Although I would say the leftists are definitely more crazy and unprofessional with their religious devotion. It’s like telling a religious nut that you really don’t care much about God or Jesus and the topic doesn’t interest you much, and they accuse you of being a Satanist or something. A lot of people will purposely exaggerate your opinions and try to force you to “choose a side”.

    Personally I think pointing out racial differences in I.Q. is one way to start helping lower performing groups do better (by crafting policies that take into account certain differences). I’m all about helping the poor and minorities and at the same time strongly against affirmative action or hate speech against whites.

  • MekongDelta69

    I remember Frank from the ‘beginning,’ so to speak. He was always a great guy – and still is…

  • BlueSonicStreak

    Oooh, but Pinker has actually been extremely careful never to say that he thinks racial IQ differences are innate (unless he’s talking about the Jewish IQ). Sowell acknowledges the gap, but absolutely does not believe it is genetic.

    Borzellieri very clearly stated these differences are inherent.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Good points. Pinker and Sowell, though very good writers, have never endorsed genetic IQ differences.

      So Borzellieri’s stance is nowhere near as mainstream as this author would have us believe. Unfortunately.

      • Sick of it

        Having read Sowell for years, I’m certain he believes it, but just won’t publicly state it.

        • BlueSonicStreak

          Now I’m curious, as he has explicitly argued against it. What observations have made you believe he thinks it privately?

          • Sick of it

            #1 Read his own words when he talks about the black community…he doesn’t do so with blinders on

            #2 You should realize that a black man with above average intelligence is going to see racial differences in intelligence more clearly than white people. The vast gulf between him and other blacks is extraordinary.

          • Very intelligent people aren’t impervious to shame or self delusion. He may be much smarter than the average black, but if anything that just makes him more mentally capable to twist himself into a pretzel coming up with explanations for how his race isn’t inherently less intelligent than all others.

            Put yourself in his shoes, pretend that whites suffered from, well, black genetics, but you were several deviations ahead of essentially your entire race in intelligence. Would you want to accept that your kin were essentially inferior? That your own children would likely be closer to the thugs and lowlifes that make up a substantial chunk of tour own people, than they would to your own intellect?

            Sure he sees the differences in intellect between blacks and everyone else. But that doesn’t mean he attributes it to genetics.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            Yes, thank you, I was mulling over how to respond to that, if at all.

            What he said makes sense on paper, and does apply to a few blacks. But it’s been my experience that smarter blacks almost always blame whites for black dysfunction. They are better at rationalizing the argument for “white privilege,” and (being able to better comprehend the scope of problems the black community deals with), are among the most angry. They’re often rabble-rousers alongside white liberals, stirring up the dimmer masses.

            Simpler-minded, more good-hearted people often have more straightforward observations. My favourite, thus far, that I’ve seen on black social forums was a guy who said, “Every race is better at different things. I think we’re good at music and entertainment and stuff. White people are better at mental things.”

            Mental things!

        • Anna Tree

          Some marry whites for their looks, but some definitively marry them for their IQs (too.)

            Or they marry Whites for the money.

        • AndrewInterrupted

          And Sowell is by no means a “blue-black” from the Congo. They say Africans in America have roughly 22% European admixture. Sowell probably has more. Just plain old ingratitude. Same with any “diversity darling” you ever meet in the workplace. They never–ever acknowledge the diversity tailwind they’ve enjoyed.

          • Sick of it

            Before the one drop rule, they very much did. I’ll leave it at that.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            I have to say that I’m not fond of the “must be the admixture” meme here.

            Don’t get me wrong; I’ve certainly noticed how many notable blacks have some significant amount of white admixture. It’s the pattern you’d obviously predict, of course.

            But not ALL intelligent blacks are significantly part white. There couldn’t be the terrible “brain drain” out of West Africa that there is without some pure blacks having the brains to flee the continent for Western university degrees and jobs. A low average IQ is still an average, and outliers still exist.

            When people harp on the admixture EVERY time, it comes off as incredibly one-track and supremacist.

          • AndrewInterrupted

            Or stark reality.

          • “There couldn’t be the terrible “brain drain” out of West Africa that there is without some pure blacks having the brains to flee the continent for Western university degrees and jobs.”

            This doesn’t really refute anything, to pick on an even lower group (intellectually) I imagine there to be a “brain drain” of sorts with the aboriginal people of Australia, that doesn’t mean that the ones smart enough to leave are by default “smart” they are simply not quite as “dumb”.

            Although I get your point, and point out the obvious admixture effect in play in these situations is essentially unnecessary at best, and damaging to our image at worst, that does not mean it is not accurate, or truthful. I’m sure there are a few potentially brilliant “pure” blacks, in and out of Africa. But where are they? Your case would have much more weight with a few examples to give us. A few haitians or hottentotts who invented something which made an impact in the world at large?

            The brains draining out of Africa aren’t geniuses, they’re merely snart enough to realize that escaping their own people will lead to “better” everything. As Andrew said, it’s just the stark reality, and reality beez rayciss, yo!

          • BlueSonicStreak

            What do inventions that influenced the world have to do with what I’m saying here, though? When you really look at it, most of history has been powerfully influenced by (in the larger picture) only a very tiny number of people of any race.

            I’m not talking about genius on that level. On a day-to-day basis, the level of smarts it takes to, say, go to med school is rarer but not unheard of in pure blacks. The reason I mentioned West African immigrants is that liberals tend to bring them up in arguments about the local achievement gap; the idea is that the existence of successful black African doctors in the West prove the American achievement gap is caused by environmental factors.

            Of course that’s not true, as the sample they’re discussing is heavily biased and specifically self-selected for intelligence. But when African immigrants are doing well enough in the West to be a fallback liberal talking point, the credit cannot go to admixture.

      • Albert

        Pinker is too intelligent to be ignorant of inherent differences. I think he just wants to avoid career suicide.

    • evilsandmich

      Sowell is someone who grew up under an old-school, strict discipline black household and is of a mind that many black failures are those that they bring on themselves. He’s correct in a manner, but is missing the underlying issue that causes such rampant poor decision making by blacks to begin with.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      The IQ map.

      Argentina has high levels of European blood, as the map shows.

      • Wing-nut.

        Smack-dab in the middle of the map. Can’t miss it. Woulda thought they could’ve hid it better too.

      • Such a neat picture. I mean its … its riiiiight out there in the open, a visual, 2d representation of what we all know. And it’s pretty nifty in another way, as you pointed out with Argentina, you can see a few places which we must have been (or asians have been, to be fair) somewhere in history, where the residual effects of our mingling can still be seen on such a massive scale the color gradually fading as you get further from our historical influence.

        So cool!

        • AndrewInterrupted

          Yes, Argentina is loaded with European blood. What is also interesting is that this image is readily available on Wikipedia without race hustlers like Sharpton and Maddow at MSLSD pointing and sputtering at it. They’ve submitted to reality? Race reality?

  • superlloyd

    The left can only deny the consistent, acknowledged facts of race differences in IQ, stamp their feet in a hissy fit and cry IQ is racist.

    The fact is everyone from the APA downwards knows the differences exist. Any serious argument at all is on the cause but in light of heritability estimates, consistent results from around the world and the failure of all intervention programmes the conclusion seems to be self evident.

    Liberals claim to want a truthful “conversation” on race. They can’t handle the truth.

    • MBlanc46

      They have their own truth.

      • Albert

        Their own truth is becoming an ever entangled web. So many lies have been made to sustain the one lie of all races being equally intelligent.

    • SaggyGenes

      What they want is a monologue, not a dialogue.

  • pcmustgo

    I feel sorry for him, but if you have a corporate or teaching job, you can’t be “out” with this… the reality is if you’re a teacher, teach black children, it would be a “conflict of interest”… because you’re supposed to believe in the kid’s potential…

    • BernieGoetzFan

      Frank had stopped being public long before becoming a principal.

    • WR_the_realist

      Frank Borzellieri got excellent reviews of his teaching from colleagues, students, and students’ parents. He taught every student, mostly black and Hispanic, as well as he could to the best of their abilities. I’m sure he did a better job of educating them than most black teachers in public schools do.

  • Sol Rosenberg

    It’s hard to believe that so many of the comments here seem to say that Frank should have known better. The guy is homeless now! Many of us have read (and enjoyed) his books at some point, but apparently we have become so cowed by the SPLC that we wont help one of our own. He is suing some of the people who would love to see us all homeless, and I intend to donate to that link provided. If he loses, then we are all in trouble.

    The most important factor in calculating IQ is age. It is ‘intelligence quotient’ how well you do on the test divided by your age. The only conclusion I can draw is that someone who is older is expected to have learned more, and not that his nerve synapses speed up in old age. If reaction time itself figures greatly into IQ results, one can only conclude that Whites on average would score the lowest. I’m sticking with my original statement. IQ measures learning and intelligence, but also in a reverse way, ignorance, a lifelong love of ignorance and very likely a propensity toward ignorance and racism. Who knew IQ tests could measure both intelligence and ignorance?

    • BlueSonicStreak

      Your understanding of how IQ scores are calculated is decades out of date. Get back in your TARDIS.

      • LHathaway

        lol, I’m already there, bro.

      • If LHathaway is the Doctor, my whole world is now upside down, lol.

        • BlueSonicStreak

          I wasn’t serious, naturally. He’d steer a TARDIS straight into a sun.

    • Jesse_from_Sweden

      Uhm. Yeah.
      It is test result divided by your age. For tests on juveniles. Because biological maturity counts for a lot when it comes to intelligence while your brain is still developing.

      They stop doing that when it comes to tests for adults.

      • LHathaway

        What are you talking about? A 60 year old has to score almost twice as high as a 20 year old to achieve the same result.

      • LHathaway

        I’ve been corrected by another reader who notes my information is out of date. Never-the-less that is where ‘Intelligence quotient’ comes from. What you know specifically divided by your age. Perhaps I’m out of date, but that is where the word comes from (and how IQ was previously measured – even the IQ tests that racists prefer to reference).

        • Jesse_from_Sweden

          You are out of date. And badly so.

          “Intelligence quotient” is a measurable unit that is as close to actual intelligence that we are able to get. It doesn’t actually reflect intelligence, but it is the best way of measuring actual intelligence that we have been able to come up with.

          Researchers talk about g as the actual intelligence, and try to norm various IQ-tests based on how close they are able to get to that g.
          They also talk about crystalized and fluid intelligence, which is based upon ease of learning and on cemented knowledge, for lack of a better term.

          IQ, and intelligence, is not based on sheer knowledge, but is more a measure of problem-solving abilities. The ability to think abstract thoughts and find solutions to things that you were previously unaware of.

          I think you are mixing in the “Flynn-effect” into this, which is based on the fact that average IQ have seem to increased over time, with something like 20-25 IQ per 100 years.
          Which doesn’t actually work, because we haven’t measured IQ for long enough and they have been extrapolating the results giving potentially ridiculous end results.
          Such as extrapolating the number of retirees in an aging community and coming up with the number that in the year 2100 Japans population will consist of 120% retirees. Which is obviously ludicrous.

          Due to the Flynn-effect, and the goal that 100 IQ is to be the average, that means IQ-tests have been getting re-normed, so you had to score higher on an older test in order to get the same score on a modern test.

    • OhWow

      IQ is constant over time. I would know, I give them.

      • LHathaway

        You should have used the word ‘test’ in there. Preferably, at the end of the sentence,

        Appreciate your writing style. Wish I had come up with it *sarcasm*. In your case, you may have extended it to it’s ultimate, most vulgar, conclusion.

        • Jesse_from_Sweden

          Keep in mind that there are people who are reading this articles and commenting on them who are not native english-speakers.

          I belong to that group, and swedish is my first language and english my second.
          And german my third.

          That’s something that’s worth keeping in mind when you comment on someones grammar or spelling.

          • BlueSonicStreak

            Don’t worry about it. His suggested correction (“IQ is constant over time tests”) makes ZERO sense to a native English speaker, either. (And the original sentence was perfectly understandable.)

            Your English is also better than his by far.

            LHathaway writes to us from a distant planet, I think. It’s unfortunate that whites there have the same problems as here. Perhaps someday we will unite with our interstellar brothers and sisters.

          • Hahaha, thanks for handling that, and the explanation. A different planet hadn’t occured to me yet, but it makes perfect sense, I think LHathaway is the product of learning to speak/write from watching years of broadcast television transmissions which have been broken and jumbled as they travelled through space to whatever distant planet he resides on.

            Makes PERFECT sense… I always knew the truth was out there…

  • fgbrunner3

    Cheer up. Soon designers babies will be the norm for the rich and famous. It will then become impossible to deny genetic differences in intelligence.

    • WR_the_realist

      Naw. The rich and famous are too busy adopting orphans from Africa.

  • BlueSonicStreak

    Thing is, you can acknowledge that IQ is heritable to some small or large degree without ever conceding that there are heritable differences.

  • evilsandmich

    As Sailer has pointed out, there’s no need for PC work camps since the threat internal exile hangs over their enemies.

    • LHathaway

      lol, White men fear Prison, and being poor. I have no idea why . . .

  • Albert

    Wondering how long it will be before the left has us marching in lockstep to the book burnings?

    • Weisheit77

      You’re generous. I’m wondering how long until they lock us up; the book burnings have already begun.

    • LHathaway

      Book burnings haven’t fully begun yet.

      My local library, by the way, sells old books outside for a week or two during the summer. It normally makes my day walking by.

  • WR_the_realist

    This has nothing to do with the federal government so the Freedom of Information Act is irrelevant. Frank Borzellieri is a Catholic who has a serious interest in education. He did good work for a Catholic school but was fired when his writings from many years before were publicized by a vindictive paper, He was fired from a second school job when that school learned about it. In short, Borzellieri can’t get work because years ago he had expressed politically incorrect opinions.

    My guess would be that if he is working with Japanese companies translating from Japanese into English that a) they don’t understand America’s PC culture and b) even if they do hear a complaint they would probably ignore it.
    An American company isn’t going to turn down paperwork (potential profit) based on who the Japanese chose to do their interpretation work for them.

    As someone who has many international friends and travels that would be my bet. This PC culture is really only understood in Western Europe and the USA.

    • It’s much much more likely that Mr. Taylor works, most of the time, translating English > Japanese for an american company, and not the other way around.

      Generally speaking, the Japanese have well educated Japanese folks who they would much rather use, and trust, than a foreigner, no matter how educated or fluent he happens to be. Asians are, in general, wonderfully racist, and have not yet been beaten into submission with the “we are all the same” stick.

  • Weisheit77

    Unfortunately education is sort of like Mt. Doom in Mordor. You are in the heart of the beast. The first prerequisite to education is the denial of any genetic basis for academic achievement. Wanting to be an educator without swallowing this basic tenant is like someone who wants to be a Baptist preacher without being saved. It just ain’t gonna happen.

    I’ve flirted with the education field for the last decade and it trends left to far-left. Even admitting that one watches Fox News is enough to raise eyebrows. God forbid they find out you think Fox News trends leftwards on social issues.

    I’m seriously thinking about trying my hand overseas just to get away from the stifling PC culture that is modern public and higher education in the west.

    If 1984 were released in today’s PC world most liberals would see untoward about the story line at all. Of course, the publisher’d have to change the title, moving it forward to perhaps 2038 in order to give admiring liberals continued hope for the future.


    I hope I live to see the day we can pay these nut jobs back.
