Idea

Stop ignoring I.Q. differences
Why does this paper consistently ignore the most likely explanation of the so-called "achievement-gap"--racial differences in I.Q.? You should at least acknowledge the existence of substantial evidence for these differences as documented in the works of Professors Arthur Jensen and J. Philippe Rushton and as addressed in Murray and Herrnstein's "Bell Curve."

(See, e.g. Race, Evolution, and Behavior [.pdf file]) To consistently ignore this evidence constitutes a journalistic disservice and breach of faith with your readers.

This is the worst idea ever! Did it ever occur to anyone that perhaps the IQ tests were written for whites by whites? The Bell Curve was yet another stupid report "proving" with "scientific evidence" that whites are smarter.

Great idea but its the third rail of discussions, anyone mentioning it is immediately labeled as incurably racist. The fact that it may or may not be true is immaterial. The brutal facts are that "something" reduces IQ for Blacks about 16 IQ points. This effect has been observed for as long as there have been IQ tests and repeated literally thousands of times. Whether this is their culture or their genes is a subject of much heat but little resolution. Whatever the cause its your fault!
