hello there this is part two to my previous video genetic betrayal the truth about race I recommend you go and watch that first or at least see the introduction as the video is time-stamped in case you'd rather just jump into this video though this is the piece of race realist nonsense where debunking we finished with the first four quote-unquote myths last time and now we'll continue with myth number five till the end myth number five racial differences in intelligence are explained by socioeconomic factors ah
00:30
finally a favorite topic of racists that have never accomplished anything in their lives african-americans and intelligence honestly I've always wondered if the race relist that made this is truly so superior to everyone else why does he even bother why doesn't he just go on about his life being superior and all that go out get a dog go find love I promise you it's better than sitting in a dark room in one I am a racist dog calm forums circle jerking about how superior they are you don't see black people doing this anyways what
01:01
they're trying to say here is that basically intelligence or the supposed gap between blacks and whites is purely racial there's a lot of bad research here so strappin there's a lot of talk about IQ and well let us grant the usual perception of usefulness of IQ just know that its usefulness is contested and that research into intelligence is very nuanced and multifaceted of course you won't get that perspective from the race realists of course environment effects well practically everything about a person's development one thing that's
01:32
rarely mentioned though is the role of epigenetics epigenetics shows that the effect of stress can persist on to your children and further descendants now remember that african-americans in the u.s. were subject to forcible removal from their homes the transatlantic slave trade centuries of unimaginable oppression and slavery decades of further disgusting racism and discrimination after emancipation and I use that term loosely just to name a few on top of all this there are
02:03
centuries of being forced to live the most pathetic existence never-ending malnutrition no access or actually the complete exclusion from any form of educational institute or academic endeavor segregation torture extreme poverty constant fearing for one's life the most inhumane existence for a population wrong for hundreds upon hundreds of years then parts of the US still continues to this day and these race realists dare say that a fault a black person may have no matter how minut is by fault of their genetics and
02:35
their skin color not their environment all right let's cover something quick here at the bottom right you see a graph from the minnesota transracial adoption study basically the study examined the IQ test scores of adopted children of different races and of non adopted white children all home raised by white families as you may imagine the study supposedly found higher IQs for the white adoptees compared to the black adoptees if this study did indeed equalize environments for blacks and whites then the results would seem to indicate that the IQ gap
03:06
is largely genetic however there are two reasons to doubt that the study equalized the environments for blacks and whites number one the children with two black parents were adopted substantially later than other children the average white child was adopted about 19 months but the average child with two black parents was adopted at 32 months the results of the study showed that the children who were adopted later had much lower IQs than those who are adopted earlier black children adopted within one year birth had IQs seven points higher than those adopted later for example secondly while the study did
03:39
somewhat equalize environments after adoption they failed to equalize environments before adoption this can be extremely important as well for example a high blood lead level in infants can result in a noticeable reduction in IQ during adulthood blood lead level is particularly important for the blacks in the study because when this study was published in the 1970s the blood lead level of black children aged six months to five years was extremely higher than the level for white children of the same age thus led could have played a significant role in
04:10
the black children's IQ blood lead level is just one example by the way factors such as social stimulation before adoption are also important to a child's cognitive development but the study could not have equalized such factors many other studies by the way have shown results that contradict this one as well now almost all the rest of the graphs you see have to do with comparisons of income brackets race and test scores the claim being that even African Americans from higher income families score worse than white Americans from lower income families and that this is supposedly
04:42
explained by a race not environment of course they're wrong before I say why though notice that one of the grasses from the bell curve by charles murray famous for all sorts of blacks are inferior nonsense i'll spare you my personal opinions of this person who has no qualifications in genetics mind you instead i suggest you watch the video reading the right volume one the bell curve to get a far better breakdown than i can give in this already bloated series of videos they also cite Arthur Jensen an author that received over a million dollars from the pioneer fund a
05:13
foundation founded by a Nazi fellow traveler and is noted for supporting white supremacist goals I'm sure there is no conflict of interest there at all definitely no ideological motive either just pure science yes now I'm not all too interested in SAT scoring as academic test scores are definitely not a measure of intelligence anyone who's ever gone through any sort of standardized testing can admit to that nor do I care that within quote-unquote racial groupings there are a larger discrepancies in test scores than between racial groupings something
05:45
they conveniently don't mention the entire question is misguided because we're letting the race realists frame the question when we've already seen that they aren't honest with well anything this isn't different here just because a black family has been in a higher income bracket for a generation or two doesn't mean that every other environmental factor changes with it income is only one environmental factor unlike what the coffee pasta claims not all factors were equalized and the results don't show that as genetic I wrote in my script that I should give an analogy here but I
06:16
now which is more appropriate so I'll just give both imagine two fields for agriculture one perpetually under water horribly mistreated and unkept for 300 years and one that's been growing stuff regularly and more or less maintained at least a little bit for the same amount of time now let's say the flooded and unkempt field is recently d flooded and someone starts somewhat taken care of it will it grow stuff immediately at the same rate and amount as the other field no of course not another analogy is two
06:47
trees one in a very unfavorable environment and one in an all right one let's say let's say we finally bring the trees to the same level will the previously disadvantaged tree immediately start bearing fruit no of course not it will need a few seasons if not many years to heal and improve its condition before it'll do anything the latter example I've seen in real life so that's why it's sad to include both the race realists ignore many things they ignore that the IQ gap stopped closing when
07:17
Regan intensified the war on drugs with the admitted intention of targeting African Americans they ignore economic inequality stereotyping and we'll get back to that in a second the blood lead level and its effect on cognitive development the stress of living with a different skin colour that carries with it the fear of racist coughs profiling and possibly murdering you on the street just for being that certain color African Americans are to a large extent more affected by these factors than whites the fact that the gap was closing at all until the drug war period is proof enough that environmental and
07:49
educational improvements facilitated the ability and will to perform on arbitrary intelligence tests that don't prove anyone is any fundamentally more or less equal than anyone else the race realists even concede at this point as they now have retreated from all blacks are just stupid to a vaguer position of well poorer black still don't do as well poor whites something else that these race realists seem to not understand is spotlight anxiety and the extremely negative effects on performance that stereotyping has a growing body of
08:21
studies undercuts conventional assumptions that genetics or cultural differences lead some students such as african-americans or girls to do poorly on standardized academic tests and other academic performances instead it's become clear that negative stereotypes raised inhibiting doubts and high pressure anxieties in a test takers mind resulting in the phenomenon of stereotype threat psychologists Claude Steele Joshua Aronson and Steven Spencer all PhDs have found that even passing reminders that someone belongs to one group or another such as a group
08:52
stereotyped as inferior and academics can wreak havoc with test performance remember Huey Newton co-founder of Black Panthers and if you've read his writings and obviously very intelligent man couldn't read until 16 years of age due to the American school system neglect from the powers that be doesn't equate to inferiority honestly this is the crux of the matter when true scientists actually set their minds to figure out why something happens and actually attempt to improve human life they come
09:22
across real reasons for discrepancies that can be fixed just enough on the side another person that is usually linked together with the plaques and IQ nonsense not particularly in this copypasta but some of the sources they cite cite him is the work of Richard Lin which has been thoroughly discredited moving on this hatred isn't new its historical and it was applied to white people wants as well when the children of southern Italian immigrants were given IQ tests in the early part of the past century for example they recorded
09:53
median scores in the high 70s and low 80s a full standard deviation before their American and Western European counterparts so the Italians did as poorly on IQ tests as Hispanics and blacks did as you can imagine there was a lot of concern talked at the time about the genetic inferiority of Italians of the inadvisability of letting so many in class immigrants into the United States and of the squalor that seemed endemic to Italian urban neighborhoods does any of this sound familiar nowadays though the discussion about southern Italians has entirely disappeared the
10:24
psychologist Seymour Sarason and John doris asked in their account of the Italian experience did their genes begin to mutate somewhere in the 1930s or is it possible that somewhere in the 1920s if not earlier the socio cultural history of Italo Americans took a turn from the blacks and the Spanish Americans which permitted their assimilation into the general undifferentiated mass of Americans final point this is all theater all these arguments and discussions don't matter as this is nothing but a political
10:55
project for these race realists something that annoys me is that they'll say all of this about blacks but then feign objectivity the latest trend is to be in absolute racist [ __ ] but then say that Asians are smarter than whites or that blacks are better athletes but if you were to in turn say well then Asians are clearly the superior race based on IQ the criteria you used establish your supposed superiority over blacks they'll quickly back down with excuses look if
11:25
Asians are smarter blacks stronger and Jews supposedly control everything that our whites really superior myth number six there isn't significant genetic distance between races now it's probably obvious to you about letting the race realists dictate the terms of the debates is silly because they've shown themselves to be intellectually dishonest here is yet another example of this the claim is that Africans are cleanly separated from the rest of humanity and that if we applied the same taxonomic standards that we use on
11:56
animals instead on humans we'll have numerous human subspecies immediately we could point out that subspecies do not necessarily mean races that's what they're trying to say if so they're they're wrong I mean they're wrong nonetheless but they're still wrong here is yet another telling example of their strategy where these race realists who have no idea what they're talking about start applying the layman definition onto a scientific term in hopes of finding someone not earning enough to fall into their trap the term
12:26
subspecies although very clear in layman terms isn't as clear in the scientific community there isn't a single unified definition of what exactly a subspecies is nor is it a universally accepted term and most relevant fields don't make much use of the concept now the first little table supposed to lend credibility to the claim if Jaguars have as much genetic variability as humans and they have in nine subspecies then how many subspecies do humans have except there
12:58
is a lot of doubt about these animals for example Jaguars having subspecies at all the animal a sight was supposedly as much genetic diversity between humans as between members of its own species Jaguars is now actually believed to not have any subspecies at all outdated research from a century ago believed that there were nine subspecies this was revised three and now we stand at zero in 1939 Reginald Ines Pocock unfortunate name recognized eight subspecies based on geographic origins and skull morphology
13:28
of these specimens later considerations of this work suggest that only three subspecies should be recognized results of morphologic and genetic research indicate a clinal north-south variation between populations but no evidence for subspecies differentiation the IUCN Red List Assessors for the species and members of the cat's specialist group do not recognize any Jaguar subspecies as valid to further drive this point home in a 2004 study Rhines Inc used the small amounts of genetic variation and population structure in bird species to
14:00
challenge nearly 97% of claimed temperate bird subspecies that he investigated even though many of them showed some level of non-random genetic variation primate taxonomy has also experienced the major drop in subspecies and an increase in identified species based on new data and a more robust concept of species that aims identify independent evolutionary lineages as the smallest unit in taxonomy the second graph is basically myth number one all over again interestingly citing this study here in myth number six disproves
14:32
myth number four because study cited says that African populations have the highest amount of genetic diversity it also says that when you include large samples of all groups of people because you know humanity doesn't exist in a vacuum population differentiation drops it also says that different African populations can be clearly separated into distinct groups basically flying in the face of the claim that there is a single African or black race well done guys really really worked hard to ensure you have no conflicting studies it's all mostly
15:04
hilarious how they pick and choose what to believe and ignore whatever conflicts with their worldview from the very studies they cite it's almost as if they're ideologues with no respect for the scientific work they claim to be championing myth number seven there isn't qualitative genetic evidence for racial differences basically a rehashing of myth number three and five but with even more examples showing that these race realists don't know what they're talking about yet another example of the information dump technique where they basically try to overwhelm you with a
15:36
lot of studies about things you won't know about unless you're within those respective fields or are very into this kind of specialist literature either way it doesn't matter because a single gene being more common for example Central Asian populations doesn't mean that racists exist sadly I don't think the typical race realists understands the jump has to be made in order to draw that conclusion hold on I see an interesting name here Volker Feist hmm where have I heard that name before
16:07
Oh could it be the editor of mankind quarterly a racist rag masquerading as a scientific journal the same guy that wrote in novel-length fanfiction about Nazi Germany continued into the 21st century could be that guy Oh oh yeah it is that guy Owen what about this Davide Peiffer another quack that not only publishes a mankind quarterly but also due to his shoddy work being constantly refused by actually reputable journals after being reviewed start his own [ __ ] journal called open psyche which publishes more
16:39
pseudo scientific nonsense and goes completely unrecognized he also publishes in intelligence a journal that has the aforementioned long since disgraced for a surrealist Richard Lynn on this editorial board not only this but Peiffer is also a research fellow of the Ulster Institute for Social Research a racist Institute if it's just a website really there's no Institute founded by that very same Richard Lynn and publishes you guessed it more racist pseudoscience oh and what's this the
17:11
just mentioned Journal intelligence makes a showing makes you really think huh the way they solely rely on discredited and untrustworthy sources in this section by the way the findings of this particular study that a certain markers associated with higher IQ populations and is more common in Europeans has been proven to be false further research has shown that it is not in fact with intelligence but I digress as for mankind quarterly for those that don't know it's part of the disgraced Richard lence poster institute which receives funding from the pioneer fund I
17:43
mentioned earlier the pioneer fund is a white nationalist organization is on the Southern Poverty Law Center's watch list mankind quarterly is headed by Lynn who know academic takes seriously because his research is to use the technical term [ __ ] here is a great peer-reviewed article about just how [ __ ] his methodology and analysis are and here you can read their response to Lynn's sad attempt to defend himself for fun let's just quote a little bit this suggests that Lynn and my Sandburg excluded samples of Africans who average
18:15
IQs above 75 because they deemed these samples unrepresentative on the basis of the samples relatively high IQs we conclude that Lynn and my Sandberg's on systemic methods are questionable and the results untrustworthy the majority of studies on IQ test performance of Africans not taken into account by Lynn and Vanhanen and Malloy showed considerably higher average IQs than the studies that they did review we judge their reviews of Lynn and Vanhanen and Molloy to be unsystematic these authors
18:46
missed a large part of the literature on IQ testing in Africa failed to explicate their inclusion and exclusion criteria and made downward errors in the conversion of raw scores to IQ Lynn and Vanhanen estimates of average IQs of Africans of around 67 is untenable our review indicates that it is about 78 which is UK nomes or 80 us norms but I hear some race realists claim mankind quarterly is a peer-reviewed scientific journal except it's not it's not on
19:16
those things anyone can start a journal and the editors can pick the peer reviewers add this with an agenda and you can mass produce quote unquote peer-reviewed garbage there's a reason mankind quarterly has a horrible reputation as it should it's funded by white supremacists was founded by a Nazi Hatton's Board Corrado genie who worked as miscellaneous scientific sir and has numerous instances of plated dehumanizing racism mixed with praise for this or that KKK member it is a joke and this is one of the sources they're proud of
19:47
just imagine the others as for this study single nucleotide polymorphism in the neural plasticity eights with cortical thickness and intellectual ability and adolescence it's actually a legitimate piece of work from a reputable source however notice how in all the other blurbs they put little quotations from the articles but they didn't hear why because unlike the people that made this coffee pasta the authors of the study shy away from making any definitive statements about intelligence especially when we're
20:19
discussing a polymorphism that cannot be used as a predictive marker for intelligence they make it very clear that this isn't what they were trying to show nor is it what the results of the study show also the next little bit about common variants being more common in Eurasians as absolutely made up the study doesn't mention race or Europe Eurasia or Africa at all in fact this bit is ripped from another study completely where they explicitly say both RS 991 55:47 and rs4 to 7371 to
20:52
basically in layman terms the stuff in question were not associated with brain volume in our data meaning it only correlated with intracranial volume not to the actual brain size they further state although it used to be believed that these were near exclusive in the Caucasian population more recent research casts doubt on that too fantastic you get an A for citing your sources and an A+ for the dishonesty I would have liked to check the other little quotation verbs to see their being dishonest there as well but
21:23
honestly I'm tired of the snow and probability-wise they probably are finally the last text blurb has nothing to say about race at all I'm assuming the road they take with this is that since they think populations outside of Africa have more and of all DNA this is already not entirely correct and since there's a hypothesis that the h2 haplotype of the ma P towel may have come from Neanderthals and since Roger Penrose someone completely unqualified in neuroscience proposes that consciousness
21:53
supposedly arises in ma P towel that Africans are less conscious and hence less human I don't know either that or they just wanted four on each side who knew racists loved symmetry something these race realists probably didn't know is that tau protein is associated with Alzheimer's disease progressive supranuclear palsy picks disease and other to AAPA thiis which are incredibly debilitating diseases as someone in the medical field I'm surprised to see them mentioning tau at all to be honest the race realists would never want to even imply that white
22:25
people get for example Alzheimer's more frequently that wouldn't be very superior of them now would it unless of course the race view lists have no idea what they're talking about and are too blinded by ideology to do their research properly I think it's that finally the last myth myth number nine individual successes disprove the relevance of race a strange argument to make really I've never heard anyone say this but let's say what the copypasta says scientific studies show European admixture is an
22:56
excellent predictor of how successful a black person is Wow now already this is so [ __ ] stupid that I can't believe they kept it in first of all they need to learn basic arithmetic as only one study cited not studies secondly they're trying to say with that little graph to the left that 2.4 percent more European ancestry is the difference between a bachelor's degree and a high school degree not only that but that 2.4 percent is supposed to account for being wealthier having a better job being more
23:27
educated overall etc etc if now bear with me if a 2.4 percent increase in European admixture whatever that means is an excellent predictor of black success then why are there poor whites at all or uneducated whites five percent supposedly stands between dropping out of high school and a bachelor's degree if this was the eternal truth they're trying to present it as then those would say if 50 percent European admixture must be geniuses those with 95 or 99 percent European
23:58
admixture must be mega galaxies brained individuals that right now of course not all so it's incredibly dishonest aside this study as it has nothing to do with measuring European admixture again whatever that means and how well off one is it actually measures factors influencing type 2 diabetes' to enforce such silly nonsense from a study on a completely different subject matter not only shows a complete disregard for the scientific process but also shows how these people don't understand even basic
24:28
analytical thinking this is definitely one of those cases where correlation and especially weak one mind you definitely does not mean causation also the fact that they thought this was a worthy argument and the coffee pasta they're so proud of really does all the debunking you need they genuinely thought this was some earth-shattering truth Jesus Christ how [ __ ] pea-brained can somebody be conclusion I want to say that we're finally done but we're never done no
25:01
matter how much refute their arguments they'll still retreat to another position with another flimsy argument because as we've already seen these people aren't honest they aren't doing this because they respect science or want the truth about anything they formed wrong political opinions based on garbage long disproven expiry theories like why genocide and then tried to prove their position correct by twisting medical research into saying what they wanted they try to appeal to lay men with their propaganda despite the extremely complex
25:32
science they incorrectly sight they love avoiding to define terms obfuscating the full scholarly debate over differing terminology and try to make it look like there is a scientific consensus on the [ __ ] they peddle join me for the next and final part of this little series where I'll show the consequences of such theories and how they've played out in history before if you enjoy what I do then please consider supporting me on patreon I'd like to thank my patrons so thank you - Sasha of Isetta
