The Silencing of Science

Eleven years ago The Bell Curve came out and it was very controversial. The main premise was that certain humans were, to some extent, genetically predisposed to have certain attributes. The authors were called "racist" "sexist" etc... but I never did see any scientific studies to show that the authors were incorrect in their statements. Now, one of the authors of the book, has followed up with an article in commentary magazine regarding his findings, after the Lawrence Summers Kerfuffle at Harvard.

HERE is the link to the article. It is quite lengthy, but a fascinating read for those that are intellectually curious.
