Richwine holds a PhD from Harvard, and has written about I.Q. and race, and faced the consequences: liberal rage and media frenzy for telling truths that the left wants hidden. He writes:
There is a large discrepancy between what educated laypeople believe about cognitive science and what experts actually know. Journalists are steeped in the lay wisdom, so they are repeatedly surprised when someone forthrightly discusses the real science of mental ability.So many disciplines are corrupted and usurped by politics today that it is almost impossible to trust the popular media on any of them. That corruption mainly includes science and history, where both are manipulated (or suppressed) to support modern political goals. I.Q. as it differs by race is a glaring example.
If that science happens to deal with group differences in average IQ, the journalists’ surprise turns into shock and disdain. Experts who speak publicly about IQ differences end up portrayed as weird contrarians at best, and peddlers of racist pseudoscience at worst.
