  •  He is arguing that scientific inquiry (0+ / 0-)

    or  intellectual inquiry, even if it goes against the political views of group of people, should be allowed to proceed without much harassment and endangerment of future careers.

    He is basically making a classically liberal argument but because he is using a conservative ass hat to make the point, liberals are confused and heap scorn on him.

    We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them. Albert Einstein

    •  Richwine didn't engage in scientific inquiry (4+ / 0-)

      If that's what he was doing, he would have included the decades of research that show his premise was flawed in his analysis. He chose to leave out that very large body of work, because it did not support his thesis that a broad group of people, from many different backgrounds, who share nothing more than a relative pigment volume in their skin, are dumber than a non-existent group with less volume (what exactly is a native-white?). Other gems in his thesis include the claim that Jews in their populations raised the IQs of otherwise dumber European "races" (i.e.: Polish, Italian, etc.).

      You can read it in his own words - the thesis is online.
