Proof that race matters

November 4, 2007

 White Loss Risk Assumption: A white who says that race matters is at risk to lose their job, TV show, book talk, speaking fees, etc.

Black Gain Assumption:  A black who says race matters has a positive probability of gain and little probability of loss.

Theorem: Race Matters.

Proof by contradiction 1.

Assume race doesn’t matter.  Then by White Risk Assumption, a white who says it does may suffer a loss with positive probability.  This is a contradiction.  Therefore race matters.  QED.

Proof by Contradiction 2.

Assume race doesn’t matter.  A black who says it does may have a gain with positive probability. This is a contradiction, so race matters.  QED.

We thus have two proofs that race does matter.  Its important to emphasize, this is not just a joke.  If either assumption is true, then race does matter.  Additional proofs are by affirmative action, welfare or other government benefits, etc.

The case of James Watson saying black intelligence and implicitly IQ are lower shows the White  Loss Risk Assumption is true.  So does the comment of Don Imus.  So does William Shockley.  So does Duane “Dog the Bounty Hunter” Chapman losing his TV show through his son taping him and selling the tape for money, according to one story.  The attacks on Vlaams Belang by Charles Johnson of Little Green Footballs, LGF, is another proof that race matters. So are the attacks on BNP.

Whites lose their job and careers for one comment on race.  This contradicts the claim that race doesn’t matter.  Its not just a joke, its a mathematical proof.

The use of guilt by association is another proof it matters.  For Charles Johnson at LGF, race trumps all.  That shows it matters.  He may be afraid of the fate of James Watson, Duane Chapman, Don Imus, etc.  They lost their income opportunities for saying race did matter in effect.

The case of the Jena 6 is another case where black leaders like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson say that race is what matters. The outcome of jury trials such as O.J. Simpson or Laura Dickinson at EMU can be interpreted as sending the same message.  Race riots do as well.  So do crime statistics. So does DOJ saying “racial differences exist.”

The fact evidence that race matters and that racial differences exist combined with the attacks on whites for saying this show unlike attacks for saying anything else, can be interpreted to show that race is in fact what matters most.   In that case, it follows as a corollary that stopping non-white immigration is what matters most for the well being of whites and the continuation of the same civilization.

This is draft and preliminary.  This is hypotheses and speculation.  This is subject to substantial revision.  Contradictory assumptions are considered in this blog or elsewhere.  Comments are welcome.

James Watson Cold Springs Harbor Hostage?

October 30, 2007

Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory owns the land on which James Watson’s house is built. In Watson’s emailed resignation letter he mentioned that he would be allowed to stay where he lives. Because CSHL can evict Watson from his house, they have additional leverage.

“That the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is now one of the world’s premier sites for biological research and education has long warmed my heart. So I am grateful that its Board now will allow me to remain along my beloved Bungtown Road.

I have been much blessed.

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/10/25/science/26wattext.html

Note that Watson paid for the house, but CSHL owns the land. This adds to the difficulties and dependency of Watson’s position. If CSHL wants Watson to leave, and they don’t have an agreement, then Watson might have to pursue legal action to try to get any payment for the house he built.

Presumably, there is some legal agreement on what happens to Watson’s interest in the house. This might be substantially less than fair market value. Even if that is specified, getting it from an employer that has turned hostile may or may not be difficult. To avoid making that employer become more hostile, Watson feels pressure to keep quiet.

Larry Summers was also living in a house that Harvard owned as President of Harvard when he was forced out. This also weakened his position. He, however, may have had other concerns.

Lawrence Auster (Oct 18 and Oct 29), Steve Sailer (Oct 21 and Oct 28 ), and Pat Buchanan have all pointed out that James Watson and Larry Summers both caved and caved easily. In both cases they were not just employees but also tenants. In both cases, they were employees and received some continuing financial benefit from their employers. In Watson’s case, that includes continued residency for himself, and likely his wife, who is younger than he is.

Larry Summers was made institute professor at Harvard, which has a high salary and no duties. Watson is being allowed to continue to live in his house. During the negotiations, both were living in houses to some extent owned or controlled by their employer. In Watson’s case, he had lived there for a substantial length of time.

http://www.cshl.edu/public/releases/07_watson_retires.html

Eduardo G. Mestre is head of the board at CSHL. The board quickly issued a statement distancing itself from Watson. Watson’s interview was published Sunday Oct 14, 2007 and the statement from the board condemning him was Oct 17, 2007 and he was suspended Oct 18, 2007.

http://www.cshl.edu/public/releases/07_statement.html

http://www.cshl.edu/public/releases/07_statement2.html

That may be consistent with the Chairman pushing it. Mestre is an investment banker who knows how to handle employees in dismissals and hostile takeovers. He understands what leverage he has in a negotiation and how to use it. He may know how to undermine the other person’s sense of well being or take advantage of it if he senses it. Whether that happened here is for the investigative journalists to find out.

“While we honor the extraordinary contributions that Dr. Watson has made to science in the past, his comments show that he has lost his way,” Henry Kelly, president of the Federation of American Scientists, said yesterday in a statement. “He has failed us in the worst possible way. It is a sad and revolting way to end a remarkable career.”

Does CSHL stand for Cold Springs Hostage Laboratory? Are they hostage takers? Has liberalism taken our entire society hostage? Or at least LGF? The Watson case is liberal pecking, a process by which all liberals keep all conservatives in a state of fear. (This is a paraphrase from a comment in a Buckley Firing Line debate from decades ago. We are more liberal pecked now than we were then.)

Sailer discusses how East Germany, according to Sailer’s sources, suppressed a scientist, Volkmar Weiss, for similar science as James Watson was. Weiss was definitely a hostage of East Germany. They did control his house, his job, his research, and this extended to his family.

CSHL has all those levers over James Watson. CSHL is led by an experienced investment banker, Eduardo G. Mestre, who has been involved in extensive M and A, which means layoffs and unhappy, departing employees.  Is Watson just one more hand laid off in a long line of Americans losing good jobs they will never see again?
This is hypotheses, speculation or opinion. All other disclaimers apply. All statements should be restated as questions.

Buchanan defends Watson

October 29, 2007

http://www.vdare.com/buchanan/071029_recantation.htm

The Recantation of Dr. Watson
By Patrick J. Buchanan

From the time of Tiberius to the 17th century, men gave up their lives rather than renounce a belief in God. Others gave up their lives rather than renounce a disbelief in the Church. Why could Watson not stand up for his disbelief in the ideological myth of the inherent equality of all men, cultures, creeds and civilizations?

When we defend those who tell the truth, we defend ourselves.  If we don’t defend James Watson now, who will we defend later?  If James Watson can’t speak on genes, when can we?
==The following comment was posted at VA

The only way to defend the right not to be PC is to not be PC. Only if we use it can we keep it. First we became afraid to say non-PC things and now we are losing the right to say them. This is further along in Europe.

It now takes real courage to say the truth in many cases. But as we cede each ridge and valley of truth by not saying it, we lose that land. In the end, we have nothing left. At whatever place we choose to make a stand, we will be called bigots, Nazis, and racists.

http://vanishingamerican.blogspot.com/2007/10/more-on-free-speech-pc-and-right.html

A related issue is the party Vlaams Belang and its right to be taken seriously. That is also the right of any of us to be taken seriously about anything that matters.

Eduardo G. Mestre v. James Watson?

October 27, 2007

Is Eduardo G. Mestre the person who forced out James Watson from Cold Springs Harbor Laboratory?

http://www.cshl.edu/public/releases/board.html

Mr. Mestre is currently Vice Chairman of Evercore Partners, a leading investment and advisory firm, where he is responsible for the firm’s corporate advisory practice. Formerly, he served as Chairman of Investment Banking at Citigroup, one of several leadership positions he held during his 27-year tenure there. As Chairman, he led many of the integration efforts that created the banking behemoth, including the combination of the banking businesses of Solomon Brothers and Smith Barney and the creation of the dual coverage model between Citibank and Solomon Smith Barney, widely regarded as one of the most successful business models in the industry.

http://evercore.com/userdetail/index.php?userid=95

Over the years Mr. Mestre has represented many clients in communications, media, defense, aerospace and technology, including Amgen in its acquisition of Immunex; AOL in its merger with Time Warner; Citigroup in its acquisition of Banamex; News Corporation in its acquisition of Hughes; SBC in its acquisitions of AT&T and Ameritech; and Northrop in its mergers with Grumman, Litton and TRW.

Mr. Mestre is a member of the executive committee and past Chairman of the Board of WNYC, New York’s public radio stations, and he is Chairman of the Board of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, one of the nation’s leading cancer, neuroscience and genetic research centers. Born in Havana, Mr. Mestre is a 1970 summa cum laude graduate of Yale and a 1973 cum laude graduate of Harvard Law School.

====Watson Resignation Letter ===

“This morning I have conveyed to the Trustees of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory my desire to retire immediately from my position as its Chancellor, as well as from my position on its Board, on which I have served for the past 43 years. Closer now to 80 than 79, the passing on of my remaining vestiges of leadership is more than overdue. The circumstances in which this transfer is occurring, however, are not those which I could ever have anticipated or desired.

“That the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory is now one of the world’s premier sites for biological research and education has long warmed my heart. So I am grateful that its Board now will allow me to remain along my beloved Bungtown Road. Forty-nine years ago, as a newly appointed young Assistant Professor at Harvard, I gave my first course on this pernicious collection of diseases of uncontrolled cell growth and division. Cancer, then an intellectual black box, now, in part because of research at the Laboratory, is almost full lit. Though important facts remain undiscovered, there is no reason why they should not soon be found. Final victory is within our grasp. Strong in spirit and intensely focused, I wish to be among those at the victory line.

“The ever quickening advances of science made possible by the success of the Human Genome Project will also soon let us see the essences of mental disease. Only after we understand them at the genetic level can we rationally seek out appropriate therapies for such illnesses as schizophrenia and bipolar disease. For the children of my sister and me, this moment can not come a moment too soon. Hell does not come close to describing the impact of psychotic disorders on human life.

“This week’s events focus me ever more intensely on the moral values passed on to me by my father, whose Watson surname marks his long ago Scots-Irish Appalachian heritage; and by my mother, whose father, Lauchlin Mitchell, came from Glasgow and whose mother, Lizzie Gleason, had parents from Tipperary. To my great advantage, their lives were guided by a faith in reason; an honest application of its messages; and for social justice, especially the need for those on top to help care for the less fortunate. As an educator, I have always striven to see that the fruits of the American Dream are available to all.

“I have been much blessed.”

There is quite a contrast between the man who made the science and the man who brought him down. Do we really want to be ruled by the destroyers and not the creators? Do we want to be ruled by the liars? Who is the real hater? Who hates us?

Men’s median wages are the same in the US as in 1973. See graph page 16 at link below. Women’s median wages are below men today so they make less than men did in 1973. In fact, women are still where men were in 1960. See their graph on page 16 too. Men and women’s median earnings have been falling for the last several years.

http://www.census.gov/prod/2007pubs/p60-233.pdf

The above graph is roughly flat for men from 1973 to 2006.   For women it is not much better. Mestre was an investment banker involved in mergers and acquisitions, i.e. firing employees during that period. Mestre is a main player in outsourcing, layoffs, H-1B immigration, etc. Mestre is one of those making tens and hundreds of millions of dollars from layoffs and cheap H-1B and other labor.

“NEW DATA SHOW EXTRAORDINARY JUMP IN INCOME CONCENTRATION IN 2004″ By Aviva Aron-Dine and Isaac Shapiro for a graph of income share of top 1 percent from 1913 to 2004. See graph:


Income Inequality U Shape Timeline

The top 1 percent got 20 percent of national income before immigration restriction in the 1920’s, got 10 percent and headed down during restriction, and now are back up to 20 percent. Men are where they were in 1973. Women are where men were in 1960. Mestre is part of the top 1 percent who are becoming rich. Do they hate the people they push down this way? Do they hate it when they speak up?

Was Watson just a hand speaking up out of turn on Mestre’s Plantation? Mestre then reacted with hatred to this hand speaking up? Is this the future of America? Is James Watson just another layoff to investment banker Mestre? Just another older or younger American, who was speaking up, and had to be made an example of?

Why does Mestre get to destroy a great scientist? When Mestre got his chance, he destroyed Watson. Why? Whose fault is it that we let this happen?

Watson, God Does not Pay Speaking Fees

October 26, 2007

James Watson didn’t say this to the London Times, but he is living it. Albert Einstein said, “God does not play dice with the universe.” This was because he objected to Bohr’s interpretation of indeterminacy in measuring sub-systems in quantum mechanics.

We now have new information about what God does or doesn’t do and its relation to scientists. In Einstein’s time, the dispute was over what science is. In our time, its whether to say what it is. Cold Spring Harbor Lab’s trustees say don’t.

We have been so hopelessly dehumanized that for today’s modest ration of food we are willing to abandon all our principles, our souls, and all the efforts of our predecessors and all opportunities for our descendants–but just don’t disturb our fragile existence.

Men’s median wages are the same in the US as in 1973. The article by Solzhenitsyn was published in 1974 in the Washington Post. See graph page 16 at link below.

The following summarizes some of the criticism of the Nature editorial at the above posts. Nature says scientists have the right to speak out on controversial issues, just not Watson. Nature says that population groups differ in characteristics (e.g. IQ), not races. Nature says real scientists need to speak out on the differences in population groups, as opposed to false crack-pot pseudo scientists like Watson who speak of racial differences in IQ.

Debate about sensitive scientific issues needs to be forthright but not crass.

So ‘Honest Jim’ Watson has finally fallen victim to his notorious propensity for making outrageous statements —

Maybe Nature is venting its personal feelings towards Watson?

Crass commercialism? Would that be like pretending no racial differences in IQ to get speaking fees, donor money and avoid book tours being cancelled? Is that crass? Isn’t the reaction to Watson by donor recipients the intended meaning of the word crass?

Trustees of a science institute are supposed to uphold science, not their business ventures.  If a trustee acts against science, in order to benefit their personal company, then they may be liable for their actions?  Just a hypothesis.  Donors could sue the trustee to get their money back, because the trustees have acted against science, which is contrary to the representation to donors, i.e. that science would be upheld by trustees?

James Watson: Gene Therapy for Liberalism

October 25, 2007

James Watson resigned his position as Chancellor and board member at Cold Spring Harbor Lab, but will continue to try to find gene therapy for liberalism.

http://blogs.wsj.com/health/2007/10/25/watson-dna-pioneer-resigns-posts-after-racial-remarks/

The ever quickening advances of science made possible by the success of the Human Genome Project will also soon let us see the essences of mental disease. Only after we understand them at the genetic level can we rationally seek out appropriate therapies for such illnesses as schizophrenia and bipolar disease. For the children of my sister and me, this moment can not come a moment too soon. Hell does not come close to describing the impact of psychotic disorders on human life.

Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory (CSHL) today announced that Dr. James D. Watson, 79, has retired after nearly 40 years of distinguished service to CSHL. He had stepped down as President of CSHL in 2003 and most recently served as Chancellor.

CSHL has become deeply infected by the liberalism disease and is rejecting the antibody. CSHL senses that Watson is the cure and is rejecting the cure.

==What announcement should have said:

James Watson to work on cure for liberalism.  The hard part is isolating the disease.  It seems to spread from universities.  You can catch it by watching too much TV.  However, Lou Dobbs on CNN is an antidote as many liberals have recognized including the Nation and the SPLC.

You can’t stop it spreading by washing your hands of it.  You have to get right into this dirty fight and get your hands dirty.  Only by standing up to oppose it can you survive it.   There isn’t much time left.  Oppose all legal immigration in every Western land:

UK Times: Race IQ Gap Real

October 21, 2007

The UK Times has published an article saying that there are gaps in IQ by race and that IQ does matter individually.

 October 18, 2007
IQ differences are real, but do they matter?
Nigel Hawkes, Health Editor of The Times

The evidence is that IQ, as conventionally measured, does differ between racial groups. Many studies have shown differences of about 15 points between the mean scores of white and black groups, and some have shown that Chinese and Japanese groups score higher still.

A second argument – that IQ doesn’t matter anyway -is easier to dismiss. A large body of evidence shows that IQ is linked to success in life, both educational and economic.

The elementary DNA of Dr Watson

History will remember James Watson for the discovery of the double helix. But his pronouncements are often highly controversial. His former protegee examines the complex legacy of a Nobel laureate

He says that he is “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours – whereas all the testing says not really”, and I know that this “hot potato” is going to be difficult to address.

Dr Watson’s tips for success

– Always make necessary decisions before you have to

– Be the first to tell a good story

– Don’t back schemes that demand miracles

– Never be the brightest person in the room

– Only ask for advice that you will later accept

IQ is Real Now Let’s Use It

October 20, 2007

What James Watson was telling us was that we have to acknowledge the reality of IQ or similar testing like the SAT. Colleges and universities do. So do law schools, business schools, and medical schools. IQ is real. Policies that ignore IQ like 3rd world immigration fail and cause real harm.

We investigated various cases of the island model with stochastic migration. If the population is infinite, the immigrants have a fixed gene frequency and the alleles are neutral, the gene frequency on the island converges to that of the immigrants.

Genetics. 1979 January; 91(1): 163–176.

Third world immigration replaces 100 IQ DNA with 85 IQ DNA. That is happening in America, Australia, Canada, Europe, and New Zeeland. Its happening from Hispanic and Arab immigration. This immigration including asylum must stop completely.

We are replacing 100 IQ alleles with 85 IQ alleles. That is what the theorems and data show. This is fact. This is why the critics are opposing James Watson with emotion and not reason. The critics are the ones responsible for replacing 100 IQ DNA with 85 IQ DNA. This is what Kennedy did in the 1965 Immigration Act. This is why they hate what Watson said with such a furor.

This is the moral issue of our times.   William Shockley and James Watson are on the moral side of this fundamental issue. The critics are simultaneously disloyal and immoral.  Those shouting racist at Watson are immoral and unethical.  They are the ones who, in history, rank with the names they themselves use on Watson and others.  Moral men and women must stand up now for Watson and denounce the critics as not just wrong in fact but wrong morally.

Race IQ Studies links from Jack Clinton

October 20, 2007

Jack Clinton in comment posts at Wired posted links to studies of IQ and race that are of exceptional value.  The following link from Jack Clinton below is an exhaustive detailed review of studies of IQ showing they are valid world wide and do show that there are genetic based differences in IQ.  This review makes it clear that this is fact.

What James Watson said to the London Times is literally true, all the tests and the studies show that there are genetic differences in IQ and that they matter.  Society policies based on the assumption they are equal don’t work and waste money and effort.  Watson’s critics are the ones who have advocated these and in many cases profited from them.

Following is response to the usual critic attack:

What seems really peculiar is that a racist/anti-Semecist would be so against the native people of Australia, and yet totally pro-Asian. That, and he puts America below Europe and the rest of Asian Russia. Very peculiar racist. Not very smart.

First he said that “all the testing” has proven that people descended from Africa aren’t as smart as white people.

And this is a fact. People of African descent score lower than white people on these tests in every single country where they live. The evidence shows the tests are not unfairly biased.

Scientists shouldn’t get in trouble for repeating serious scientific paradigms that are taken directly from the research literature:

http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=552481
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.intell.2006.11.002
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.intell.2006.02.003
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.intell.2005.09.006
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.econlet.2006.05.005
http://www.blackwell-synergy.com/doi/abs/10.1111/1467-6435.00191
http://content.apa.org/journals/law/11/2/235
http://dx.doi.org/10.1098/rspb.2007.0461

These are peer-reviewed economics, psychology, and biology journals, not racialist newsletters. This is where Watson’s comments come from, the scientific literature.

Make no mistake, Watson’s punishment is political, not scientific.
“He said he hoped that everyone was equal, but countered that “people who have to deal with black employees find this not true”.”

This quote is taken out of context:

“His hope is that everyone is equal, but he counters that “people who have to deal with black employees find this not true”. He says that you should not discriminate on the basis of colour, because “there are many people of colour who are very talented, but don’t promote them when they haven’t succeeded at the lower level”.

http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/books/article2630748.ece

So he says DON’T discriminate on the basis of race, even though people are quoting him to look like he’s saying the opposite.

What is more than apparent is that both lay and academic critics have absolutely NO scientifically sound arguments against this research.

http://www.gnxp.com/blog/2006/02/world-of-difference-richard-lynn-maps.php
Typically all they can muster is ignorant slogans like there is “no such thing as race”. Even though we know there is significant variation in allele frequencies that differ within and between continents.

Also always these bogus assertions that IQ is meaningless, racially biased, or has nothing to do with intelligence, myths the American Psychological Association has repeatedly issued public statements to try and counteract.

http://www.michna.com/intelligence.htm

That doesn’t stop the politically correct forces of racial equality from their never ending political misinformation campaign against this science.

Only in the bizzaro world of political correctness is one of the greatest biologists of the 20th century lectured down to about genetics from every know-nothing pissant on the Internet, none of which has never even bothered to familiarize themselves with the relevant science. They just “know” it’s wrong without any knowledge of the literature.

The American Psychological Association put a panel together that concluded exactly the opposite (of what Watson critics are saying note added OA)

“The differential between the mean intelligence test scores of Blacks and Whites (about one standard deviation, although it may be diminishing) does not result from any obvious biases in test construction and administration, nor does it simply reflect differences in socio-economic status.”

http://www.michna.com/intelligence.htm
The Flynn Effect has NOTHING to do with racial differences in IQ. This is another myth. Racial differences in IQ are on the g factor (that is the latent intelligence factor of IQ), while the Flynn Effect is not. A team of scholars investigating this question concluded:

“It appears therefore that the nature of the Flynn effect is qualitatively different from the nature of B–W differences in the United States… [so] implications of the Flynn effect for B–W differences appear small…”

Why are the critics trying to suppress peer reviewed published scientific literature which shows what Watson said?  Because they have been promoting public policies contrary to fact?  This includes immigration from low IQ sources like Mexico or Arab immigration into Europe.  Both groups score in the 80’s in IQ tests.

http://www.gnxp.com/blog/2006/02/world-of-difference-richard-lynn-maps.php

 to use Chua’s Mexico as an example, last year Lynn tested a representative sample of 920 in Mexico with the Standard Progressive Matrices and found that whites had an IQ of 98, Mestizo (mixed race) 94, and Native Indians 83 – all compatible with Chua’s observations of a “spectrum” of “social status” by amount of “Indian-blood”.

“The elementary DNA of Dr Watson
History will remember James Watson for the discovery of the double helix. But his pronouncements are often highly controversial. His former protegee examines the complex legacy of a Nobel laureate.”

Has 248 comments below it.

Watson to Times:

He says that he is “inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa” because “all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours – whereas all the testing says not really”, and I know that this “hot potato” is going to be difficult to address.

The debate is showing that this quote is exactly right.   What Watson said at the beginning is what we will say at the end.

Cold Spring Harbor: Human IQ is Zero

Return to Press Release Index

Statement by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Board of Trustees and President Bruce Stillman, Ph.D. Regarding Dr. Watson’s Comments in The Sunday Times on October 14, 2007

Earlier this evening, the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Board of Trustees decided to suspend the administrative responsibilities of Chancellor James D. Watson, Ph.D., pending further deliberation by the Board.

This action follows the Board’s public statement yesterday disagreeing with the comments attributed to Dr. Watson in the October 14, 2007 edition of The Sunday Times U.K.

Watson: Black IQ less than or equal to White IQ.

CSH: We are the smartest whites and our IQ is zero.

IQ is greater than or equal to zero

Therefore all human IQ is zero.

The CSH Nihil IQ Argument. Note that Watson is a lab employee. So its all in the laboratory.

==Appendix

For shorter space in a quotation, we can restate this as follows. Watson: Whites are smarter than blacks. CSH: We are the smartest whites, and our IQ is zero. Therefore all human IQ is zero. CSHL might be considered White IQ Zeroists.
