2020: The Year We MUST Win - or Lose Everything!

Youtube and other services have been somewhat censoring or discouraging conservative voices.

In this video, Steffan Molyneux asks for financial support for his videos.

In response to the video, I wrote...

I would have supported you by now if it weren't for your scientific racism.  Although you believe yourself founded in science, it does not take into account how environment, nutrition, and culture affect academic performance and IQ test scores.  I strongly suggest that you drop this because we need decades of rigorous research to really sort this out.

Comparing this to the miasma theory of disease is just a poor analogy.  We are dealing with a far more complex topic and any generalization is likely to be inaccurate.

Racism is so ugly that even if you thought that you were correct, even suggesting that there are racial differences encourages people to be biased.  This bias can be so devasting, even if it is by people who think that they mean well.  Racial bias destroys lives.  Everyone deserves to be considered on their own merits without people making potentially false assumptions about them.

There is absolutely no reason to think that the genes that affect skin color should have any effect on intelligence.  It is more attributable to national origin, but even with that, culture and attitude have a profound effect on academic performance and IQ scores.

There is more genetic diversity among people of darker skin than just about any other group.  For this reason, it is dangerous to make any kind of generalization about people just because they have darker skin.

I have argued with people in the comments of your videos who are clearly racist.  You are attracting this kind of crowd and you should be repulsed by it.

Best wishes,

John Coffey
