Scientist Richard Lynn discusses IQ (and g, underlying general mental ability) in relation to race. Unsurprisingly blacks without White admixture and White environmental factors, i.e African blacks have a devastatingly low average IQ of around 70, only slightly surpassed by Australian Aborigines at 65.

Meanwhile Lynn provides some insightful proposals about Jewish IQ.

Sephardic/Oriental Jewish IQ averages at 95 in Israel. Ashkenazi Jews (who have historically mixed with European genes) have a higher average of 110. Highly selective breeding for intelligence with intelligent non-Jews would seem to be factor. And unlike Catholic priests, rabbis (ostensibly among the most intelligent in the group) were not proscribed from marrying and reproducing.

The difference between these two populations suggests that Jews may not have an ‘inherently Jewish’ high IQ after all, but have selected the best among themselves and the best European genes to reproduce with.

Indeed as Lynn points out, this is in contrast to Catholic Europeans, and Catholicism may have had a serious dysgenic effect on White European IQ, where intelligent priests were not permitted to marry and have children.

Finally Lynn discusses a new project about race and psychopathy. Unsurprisingly, blacks come out worst. I’m not sure which definitions of psychopath Lynn is working with:

1. a person with a psychopathic personality, which manifests as amoral and antisocial behavior, lack of ability to love or establish meaningful personal relationships, extreme egocentricity, failure to learn from experience, etc.

2. a person afflicted with a personality disorder characterized by a tendency to commit antisocial and sometimes violent acts and a failure to feel guilt for such acts Also called sociopath

In the case of negroes, it’s clearly not a personality disorder but a normal trait of the race. The lack of moral reasoning and empathy, tendency towards violence and other traits in blacks are highly analogous to the same conditions seen in other animals.
