      Agree. Although, I think with the name of the blog, some unfairly dismiss it without reading the excellent, fair minded analysis (eg Jason Antrosio refused to allow a link due to the name).

        Feel free to create a new WP blog with a less repelling name and to upload my files there. I’ll give you the password and all. Personally, I don’t care, because, as I indicated to Malloy, I’m not out to sell any ideas to anyone. This is solely Chuck’s Notebook.

      One problem with this theme is that it is not easy to distinguish the links in the posts (no color).

      Anyway, if someone here is interested…

        Thanks for the link. I got Nisbett’s book out from the library a couple of years ago. Incidentally, my library has a reasonable range of books on the subject. Including Daniel Seligman’s “A question of intelligence”, the “IQ Controversy” by Stanley Rothman & Mark Snyderman, “The Decline of Intelligence in America’ by Seymour Itzkoff, The Bell Curve, The Intelligence Controversy: HJ Eysenck vs Leon Kamin, Bias in Mental Testing by Arthur Jensen and The IQ argument: Race, intelligence, and education by Hans Eysenck.

    well done! once again – the one-standard deviation difference that won’t go away. thus completing a century of one-standard deviation difference. of course, their african brothers give us a century of two-standard deviation difference.
    the degree of over-representation of blacks in sports (football, basketball, track, etc.) suggest blacks are a standard deviation above whites in whatever it is (speed/athleticism, etc.) that aids sports performance. it seems to be a trade-off — lack of executive skills (diminished “g”) aids performance in sports, & musical improvisation..?
