Broken Curve, Clang the Bells!

The Bell Curve takes another hit. Turns out white babies are no more intelligent than black babies. It's kinda funny I should read this shortly after watching an episode of The Boondocks on the web with the self hating character of Uncle Ruckus trying to spread the gospel of White Jesus, and salvation through racism.

Economists Roland G. Fryer of Harvard and Steven D. Levitt of the University of Chicago analyzed a data set that contained measures of mental abilities for more than 10,000 babies 8 months to 11 months old and born in 2001. . . .

When they looked at the data, they found there was no difference in mental ability between black and white babies -- and, if anything, Asian infants did slightly worse.
