    Good night -- I really don't feel like sitting here and trying to explain the scientific method to you.

    The scientific method of Assumption?

    No thanks, I don't think I need to start believing in that
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    They re-invented slavery. The Libbos refined the new plantation in which to enslave black upon. It's called, "welfare". Instead of the 3/5 Compromise, now a black person is a whole person and allowed more votes and congressional district constituincy for the Libbos.

    Can't have all those black folks succeeding in life and moving out of the projects. Couldn't have any Section 5 districts, if that happened. Couldn't keep promising the same tired ass promises of a better life, if life in the black community wasn't ****. Sharpton and Jackson would lose billions in extortion money and the Libbos would lose millions of votes.

    Black folks can't vote for the, "poor man's party", if most of them aren't poor, anymore.

    Long lasting effects? lol

    The long lasting effects, I see is the increasingly large segment of our population who has been conditioned into learned helplessness by the Democratic party and the welfare state. When they are continually shocked away from achievement and towards acceptance of the dole, eventually they will never even try to succeed. With the opportunity to succeed (escape) before them, they stay on the dole (shock), never getting better, never rising above it, never succeeding.

    The long lasting effects, I see is every single Democratic policy that appeared to help the lower income citizen has turned out to be a scam when you follow the money. Why are black families in worse shape today than they were 70 years ago? Before welfare and food stamps, a woman needed her man to provide an income to support her and their children. But then the Democrats gave her subsidized housing, welfare instead of work and food stamps. If she actually had a wage earner in the house, then her benefits were cut. So fathers were gradually marginalized and cast aside. Whatever work he did and money he earned, he got to keep. She didn't want him to hang around because is cut into the government benefits and he didn't want to because it cut into his fun money.

    Welfare, welfare, welfare...

    Um...what about all the poor whites on welfare. Oh, yeah... and all those unemployed senior citizens, veterans, and disabled people??

    And if education is a factor, wasn't your boy W. the "no child left behind..." Prez. Another IAD policy that we get run over as we continue down the road of Bush wreckage.

    LOL!! It doesn't get much better than this! The companies preferred "white sounding names" rather than "Black sounding names"??

    And this is a "scientific study"?? Do you really believe that these people would not find "racial discrimination"??

    There is no way in the world they would turn in a report that said there is no racial discrimination in the United States, and those hired to do a report in Canada, Australia or the UK would find the same results. If you look for it hard enough, its sure to be there. They are in the finding racial discrimination biz.

    Of course that is the eternal wingnut response to solid scientific evidence: dismissal based on totally unsubstantiated bull**** claims of bias.

    Can you try to focus your pea-brain and stay on topic. Don't presume to lecture when you write crap like the quote below and commit the very error that you're now pontificating about. Do you have any clue how much this makes you look like a moron? You don't acknowledge when people take you down to the mat and instead you simply pretend it never happened and you shift gears and blowhard in a slightly different direction.


    Well, your buddy ric says that blacks are less successful than other races because you have a lower IQ, i.e., you're dumb.


    Secondly, I made no mention at all about causality. The effect exists and the consensus is overwhelming on this fact. Concede or refute.


    But you do think that an ideal would would be a segregated world, correct?
    It's pretty clear from looking at how people in the US choose to live that this is their preference. The odds are quite high that you live in a Census tract in which your racial group is the majority.

    Yes, you have lots of those studies. What you fail to mention are the multitudes of studies that find no significant hereditary effect. You cherry pick the science to find the conclusion you're after, just as racists have always done.
    The fact that many studies don't show any hereditarian influence is an artifact of these studies not even acknowledging the effect and therefore not testing for it. The null hypothesis in social science is liberal creationism.
