The source piece for this post takes a large number of academic racial studies that relate to the alleged superior intelligence of the Oriental.
The only way to do justice to the topic is to sit down for a couple of hours and read the whole paper. The excerpt here covers the introduction plus a few selected ideas relating to the author’s contention that Asians are NOT superior in intelligence to whites.
An easy to read companion piece to this piece is the article at Amren, which lays out Asian cultural failures. It’s a fun piece that should deepen your understanding of the Asian.

The Myth of East Asian Intellectual Supremacy by Peter J. White
Lothrop Stoddard writing in “The Rising Tide of Color Against White Supremacy”, (Charles Scribners, New York, 1920) stated in these terms the threat that now engulfs the White world: “ “Finally perish!” That is the exact alternative which confronts the white race. For white civilisation is today conterminous with the white race. The civilisations of the past were local. They were confined to a particular people or group of peoples. If they failed, there were always some unspoiled, well endowed barbarians to step forward and “carry on”. But today there are no more white barbarians. The earth has grown small, and men are everywhere in close touch. If white civilisation goes down, the white race is irretrievably ruined. It will be swamped by the triumphant coloured races, who will obliterate the white man by elimination or absorption. What has taken place in Central Asia, once a white and now a brown or yellow land, will take place in Australasia, Europe and America. Not today, nor yet tomorrow; perhaps not for generations; but surely in the end. If the present drift be not changed, we whites are all ultimately doomed. Unless we set our house in order, the doom will sooner or later overtake us all.”
This grim prophecy by Lothrop Stoddard is almost fulfilled: countries such as Australia, the United States and Britain will cease to be majority white before 2050 – in the case of the United States, by around 2040 or sooner. In this context it is important for pro-white organisations to tackle and refute ideologies harming white resistance to what is clearly a form of quiet or passive genocide. IQ is one such ideology.
It never occurs to race-obsessed liberals that blacks and Latinos do poorly in math because of their brain structures, which affects their intelligence. In short, nonwhites often lack the ability to do math. I saw this, for example, with a college girl from Panama in the States to study, who was certainly not oppressed by whitey in her home country. She and many others admitted that she hated math because she could not easily do math. Her country is mixed race like her, so it’s hard to see how white oppression held her back in math.
Excerpt from The Atlantic
Dan Battey, an associate math professor at the Rutgers University Graduate School of Education, said he set out to synthesize for math educators the research literature from sociology, history, and other disciplines on whiteness—defined in the paper as “the ideology that maintains white supremacy, valuing one racial group over others.” He also sought to expose how whiteness operates in classrooms and schools, leaving black, Latino, and indigenous students disenfranchised mathematically.
According to Battey, there are ways in which math teachers, math educators, and math researchers “are perpetuating racism in schools”—which is shaping the expectations, interactions, and kinds of mathematics that students experience. And the lack of attention to whiteness as the fundamental cause leaves it invisible and neutral. “Naming white institutional spaces, as well as identifying the mechanisms that oppress and privilege students, can give those who work in the field of mathematics education specific ideas of how to better combat racist structures,” writes Battey and his co-author Luis Leyva, of Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College of Education.
“Whiteness is impacting how and where we see mathematics ability.”
One example of whiteness explored in the paper is how the relentless drumbeat from researchers about racial differences in math achievement is linked to racially differential treatment in math classrooms. The concept of racial hierarchy of mathematical ability—a term coined by Danny Martin, education professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago—basically says constantly reading and hearing about underperforming black, Latino, and indigenous students begins to embed itself into how math teachers view these students, attributing achievement differences to their innate ability to succeed in math.
As the theory goes, with white and Asian students consistently at the top of math-achievement rankings—and black and other nonwhite students continuously trailing behind—teachers start to expect worse performance from certain students, start to teach lower content, and start to use lower-level math instructional practices. By contrast, white and Asian students are given the benefit of the doubt and automatically afforded the opportunity to do more sophisticated and substantive mathematics. The consequences are classrooms where Asian students not excelling in math are seen as an oddity, and black students excelling in math are seen as an outlier.
For non-Asian students of color in math classrooms, one response to whiteness is to dis-identify with mathematics—telling themselves “I don’t care about math. Math isn’t important to me.” Similarly, students can begin to internalize the racial stereotypes surrounding math performance. A 2014 study published in the Journal of Research on Adolescence found that children as early as the fifth grade were acutely aware of the label that “Asians are good at math.” The report cautioned about “the pernicious nature” of this belief, and its effect on how students of all races view themselves as individual learners.
Liberals twist themselves into pretzels to come up with ridiculous theories that they purport to prove. There is no science here, just the smell of cow manure writ large.

Who could be against science?
Well, lots of sensible people who are told by the (((power elites))) that we must adopt the globalist agenda that includes totally changing our way of life, by giving up our freedoms via voluntary self-enslavement, to be ruled over by nameless faceless bureaucrats who take their orders from those behind the curtain.
The clever left didn’t call Saturday’s demonstrations what they really were, which was support for the usual global warming nonsense.
They want your money and they want power over every aspect of your life. That’s not science. That’s totalitarian Communism under the guise of do-gooderism.
By the way, where the hell was Al Gore? Hiding out because he has less than zero propaganda value these days.
It’s not often that bugs get whoops and cheers.
Lovers of science got their day in the rain Saturday as they rallied around their passions, delivering applause for the technology that brought their smart phones to the obvious theme of climate change on Earth Day.
And while the March for Science was on the surface nonpartisan, politics bubbled up again and again.
“Insects don’t see borders and they can climb walls,” Jessica Ware, an evolutionary biologist at Rutgers University, said to applause.
“We must teach our children about evolution. We must teach our children to love insects and arachnids,” Ware said, to howls of approval.
Because it was a march, protest signs abounded, from the funny (“I just came for the pi” and “Without science, it’s just fiction” ) to the sincere (“Science Saves Lives”).
Rain poured on the marchers crowding the Mall but they stood patiently to clap and holler for a procession of speakers giving minute-long soundbites.
Bill Nye, a television science entertainer and educator, noted that “science and the useful arts” are embedded in the Constitution.
“Yet today we have active politicians deliberately ignoring and actively suppressing science. Their information is misguided,” he said.
“Our numbers here today show the world that science is for all.”
Some March for Science speakers invoked patriotism and love of country as their motivation. “I am a patriot. I fight for spacious skies. I fight for amber waves of grain,” said photographer James Balog, founder of the Extreme Ice Survey and Earth Vision Institute.
“America has had 45 presidents but it has never before had a president who is completely indifferent to the truth,” said Denis Hayes, president of The Bullitt Foundation and a coordinator of the first Earth Day in 1970.
Trump has been largely silent about climate change since he took office but has called it a hoax in the past. He has also proposed sweeping budget cuts to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Indifferent to the truth? Bill Clinton, the Bushes, Obama–these bullshitters promoted big government at the expense of gigantic wealth transfers from the working population to the elites.
The fools out marching on Saturday are fools. They are the kind of people who will be the first to be exterminated under future Stalinist purges. Lenin, I believe it was, called them “useful idiots.”
Organizers of the march said they are concerned about Trump’s proposed budget cuts to health and science, and his appointment of Cabinet officials who appear to question scientific consensus about climate, weather and international agreements to reduce greenhouse emissions.
“We are at a dangerous moment in our nation’s history when science and scientists are under attack, when the very words ‘climate change’ are being censored,” artist and environmentalist Maya Lin told the crowd.
“If you want America to succeed, Donald Trump, you can’t lead with your brain tied behind your back,” said Shawn Otto, author of “The War on Science.” “Climate change is real; vaccines don’t cause autism.”
Another academic study blows up the “race is a social construct” nonsense theory that liberals love. We’re not “one race, the human race.” Race is real. Even babies know it.
Babies who aren’t old enough to walk or talk still manage to exhibit racial bias, according to a new study. The research found that infants prefer to learn from adults who share their skin color.
As part of the study, researchers from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) and the University of Toronto – along with collaborators from the US, UK, France and China – gave infants a series of videos to watch.
In each video, a female adult looked at one of the four corners of the screen. In some videos, an animal image appeared in the direction she had looked. In other films, an animal image appeared at a non-looked at location.
The results showed that the infants followed the gaze of members of their own race more than they followed the gaze of members of other races.
“This occurred when the faces were slightly unreliable, as they are in the natural environment…” a press release from the University of Toronto states. “This result suggests that, under uncertainty, infants are biased to learn information from own-race adults as opposed to other-race adults.”
Infants under the age of six months were not found to show such bias, according to the study, which was published in the journal Child Development on Monday.
The findings follow a separate study which was conducted by the same researchers and published in the journal Developmental Science in January.
In that study, the researchers played a sequence of videos for three- to 10-month infants. The films depicted female adults with a neutral facial expression.
Before viewing each face, infants heard a music clip. They then participated in one of four music-face combinations: happy music followed by own-race faces; sad music followed by own-race faces; happy music followed by other-race faces; and sad music followed by other-race faces.
The research found that infants aged six- to nine-months looked longer at own-race faces when paired with happy music as opposed to sad music. They looked longer at other-race faces when paired with sad music compared to with happy music.
“Results showed that after six months of age, infants begin to associate own-race faces with happy music and other-race faces with sad music,” the press release states.
As with the first study, infants under the age of six months were not found to have the same bias.
Dr. Kang Lee, a professor at OISE’s Jackman Institute of Child Study and the lead author of both pieces of research, said the findings of both studies are “significant for many reasons.”
“The results show that race-based bias already exists around the second half of a child’s first year. This challenges the popular view that race-based bias first emerges only during the preschool years,” he said.
Meanwhile, Dr. Naiqi (Gabriel) Xiao, first author of the two papers and a postdoctoral fellow at Princeton University, said the findings are notable because they contradict the belief that racial bias is associated with negative experiences a person may have had with other-race individuals. In other words, the children in the study were simply too young to have memories of such experiences.
Pointing to previous studies which indicate that many babies typically experience 90 percent of own-race faces, Lee said that racial interactions during infancy may influence our perceptions about race in adulthood.
“These findings thus point to the possibility that aspects of racial bias later in life may arise from our lack of exposure to other-race individuals in infancy,” he said.
Lee concluded that it is important to identify the starting point of racial bias in order to find ways of preventing it.
Tucker Carlson interview the amiable Dr. Kang Lee in this youtube clip. Tucker gives Dr. Lee a bit of a hard time, but Dr.Lee is NOT one of Tucker’s liberal idiots that he loves to destroy.
Interestingly, dogs are racist too, but only toward blacks. I wish academics would do a study on that.
Since Jews are the ringleaders in the movement to flood the West with third world peoples, it seems only fair that Israel be flooded with them too.
And now there’s a chance that could happen.
This story is pretty nutty. But even Jews lose when Jews take their particular brand of crazy to its logical conclusion.
Jewish Voice Ministries International (JVMI) has encouraged Nigeria’s Igbo people to undergo genetic testing to confirm if they are descendants of the biblical Israelites as they claim. If they are, this would quadruple the global Jewish community, as the 40 million Igbos join the 13 million known Jews worldwide.
“In the same way as the texts [of the Bible] were preserved, I believe that the Jewish people have been preserved — it’s a sovereign preservation of Israel,” JVMI President and CEO Jonathan Bernis told PJ Media in an interview. He argued that the rediscovery of “lost tribes” of Israel, like the Igbo might be, constitutes the fulfilling of Bible prophecy.
“The Bible talks, particularly in the prophets, a great deal about a time when God will regather the Jewish people back to the land that he promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,” Bernis explained. He noted that Israel was “restored” in 1948, and Jerusalem came back under Jewish control in 1967, after almost 2,000 years.
“At that time, the Jewish communities began to return to the state of Israel,” the JVMI president added. He listed Jewish groups from Yemen, Tunisia, Morocco, and Syria, in addition to those from European countries. More recently, Ethiopian Jews in “Operation Moses” and “Operation Solomon” went north to settle in the Holy Land.
Bernis cited Jeremiah 16:14-15:
Therefore, behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when it shall no longer be said, “As the Lord lives who brought up the people of Israel out of the land of Egypt,” but “As the Lord lives who brought up the people of Israel out of the north country and out of all the countries where he had driven them.” For I will bring them back to their own land that I gave to their fathers.
While some might argue this prophecy was more focused on the return of the exiles from Babylon (an event Jeremiah prophesied multiple times), Bernis explained that “something that could initially be talking about a period of time in context has a deeper meaning.”
The JVMI president noted that when the Jewish exiles returned from Babylon, “that was a remnant returning, not all of the exiles.” As such, “I don’t see that fulfilling the magnitude of God being the God who returns us.” The Exodus was a huge event in Jewish memory, a founding of their entire people based on God’s specific action to preserve them.
I guess we have to rethink what a Jew looks like. These Jews I would have sworn were Dindus.
