IQ and Race: The Web Sites

Read a list of key websites dedicated to arguing for genetic differences in intelligence between racial and ethnic groups.

Under the aegis of "scientific" studies of intelligence, a number of scholars and commentators have argued that there are significant IQ differences between blacks, whites and other races. Here is a list of key Web sites that carry some of these arguments. Although not all of these sites are explicitly racist, many are, and the arguments they promote are used widely by white supremacist groups to legitimize racial hatred.

American Renaissance

This is the home site of American Renaissance magazine, which was founded by Jared Taylor, author of the controversial book Paved with Good Intentions: The Failure of Race Relations in Contemporary America. The site carries articles that include "Is There a Superior Race?" and "The Myth of Diversity."

Council for Social and Economic Studies Inc.

Described as an academic organization, this group offers for sale books and journals including The Mankind Quarterly. The council's Web site carries titles such as "The Evolutionary Function of Prejudice," "The Problem of Equality" and "Will America Drown? Immigration and the Third World Population Explosion."

Future Generations

A collection of writings from Charles Murray, co-author of The Bell Curve, and other academics who focus on supposed race-based IQ differences and eugenics, the science of improving a race stock through selective breeding. Among the site's assertions is that "the majority of scientists who do research on IQ believe part of the black-white difference is genetic."

PINC: Politically Incorrect
