IQ, Richwine, Harvard

The Richwine affair has generated some fantastic commentary not just on the man's Harvard PhD thesis, but on the broader topic of "IQ and Race". Some links:

  1. Ta-Nehisi Coates in The Atlantic: The Dark Art of Racecraft.

  2. Will Wilkinson in The Economist: The Richwine Affair.

  3. Diego von Vacano at the Monkey Cage: IQ and the Nativist Movement.

  4. Zack Beauchamp in Think Progress: The Inside Story of The Harvard Dissertation That Became Too Racist For Heritage.

    [Update: Jason Richwine Responds On Race, IQ, And His Dissertation, and Beauchamp's reply.]
