Constitutional Vanguard: The Truth About Charles Murray’s “Two Truths About Race in America” — Part Two of Three

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:54 pm



My latest newsletter, for paid subscribers, came out yesterday. I’m just now getting around to letting you know about it. It is Part Two of the discussion of the content of Charles Murray’s latest book: Facing Reality: Two Truths about Race in America.

The issue explored today is whether the “two truths” highlighted by Murray are a cause of observed disparities in society, or purely a function of systematic racism.

  1. I’ll think I’ll pass on excepts on this one. Anything I excerpt will leave out something else, and then people who haven’t read the piece will seize on the excerpted material, not knowing that their issues are addressed in the rest of the piece. This happens a lot. On this topic, it’s more concerning to have people seizing on partial passages. If you’re really interested in reading the whole argument, I think it’s pretty convincing.

  3. We also forget we are taking a snapshot in time.
    The Mayans probably would have tested pretty high.
