This is like a parody of the closed-minded and dogmatic leftist professor. Why don't you look into the literature on racial differences, instead of relying on a politically correct document full of all sorts of weaselly statements like "equal biological potential for assimilating any human culture." That could mean anything. I mean, who doesn't have potential? We all have potential. We're full of potential. That doesn't necessarily imply any contradiction with research that has found racial differences in intelligence, findings that are as well documented as anything in the social sciences.

Dude, the whole point is that there is no such thing as race and hence you can't measure "racial difference." Read the AAPA statement again, especially the last sentence.

Of course you can measure racial difference. Consider 3, "There is great genetic diversity within all human populations." What "human populations" are they talking about? Right: races. The last sentence is particularly meaningless. "Racist political doctrines find no foundation in scientific knowledge" just as egalitarian or fascist or communist political doctrines find no basis in science. Like I said, weasel-worded. Open your eyes, dude.

John Protevi

This is a joke, right? You really don't know what the biological concept of "population" is? Oy vey, that my first troll should be such as this!

You're hopeless. But curious as a sociological phenomena.

You're banned, bjk. I pay for this bandwidth and allow comments that further intelligent conversation. Your contributions here and on the Haiti thread show you to be a racist ignoramus. I'm not about to pay to give you a platform for your crap.
