Blacks and IQ, Part 2

Tweet Part 1 can be found here, where I discussed reasons why to me the focus on Black IQ versus IQ is very much a waste of time. Here in Part 2 I’d like to discuss what I consider average IQ of a racial group to be indicative of. Average IQ of a racial group [...]

Open Thread on the Economy

Tweet Feel free to post any random thoughts on the economy here folks. How we got here, predictions on where we’re going, anything. My first prediction: Illegal Mexicans will be caught sneaking back into Mexico for opportunity. Remember where you read it first.

I Would Kill To Find This On CD

Tweet The chorus and the bridge just kill it, one of the best uses of the Bob James “Nautilus” sample ever. Terribly underrated.
