Recently, a high school student in Sacramento made international headlines for presenting a science project in which he noted that there are racial disparities in intelligence.
We don’t yet know the name of the sophomore student, but he likely knew exactly what he was doing, and seems to have pointed out the differences in intelligence and sex many times before.
I’d like to take the opportunity to address him now.
First, let me say: well done. I never managed to pull off going international in high school. Good on you, young man. Second, let me offer you a job as my research assistant, after a chat with your parents or legal guardians.
Should you be interested in more entrepreneurial pursuits, I’d like to hear your pitch, invest in your company, or otherwise help you out with whatever comes next for you. Furthermore, should you grant me permission, I’d like to use my crowdfunding site, FreeStartr.com, to help others give you money, beyond the job I am promising. You may work remotely or join me in Los Angeles or Las Vegas, where I keep my homes. My network is rather large these days — I recently attended the State of the Union; I do a number of business deals every year — and I’d love to find others who can help promote you in whatever field strikes your fancy.
Judging from the coverage in the Sacramento Bee, I’d say your high school is rather hostile to independent thought, or what we once simply called “thought,” so I’d advise you drop out and pursue your own course of study. I’d like to help with that, too, and I know some of the more successful homeschoolers who can help. Should you need legal representation, I will find you a lawyer. All I ask in return is that you do your best work, and that you read some of the books I recommend, as well as two essays — “Live Not By Lies” by Alexander Solzhenitsyn, and “What You Can’t Say” by Paul Graham. In that spirit, I also ask that you never stop challenging the status quo.
Unfortunately, you may find life getting more difficult. Your principal will likely continue to harass you. Other students and perhaps more than a few of your teachers will smear you because they will want to curry favor with the Cultural Marxists who run your school or our #FakeNews media. Others will write about how traumatic the experience supposedly was so they can have an easier time being admitted to college. You’ll be told you need to be educated even though what you said wasn’t wrong, and most of your critics haven’t done the reading.
The media will publish #FakeNews about you, thereby promoting ignorance. A so-called reporter Diana Lambert of the Sacramento Bee is either wrong or deliberately lying when she deceptively states: “The idea of race being tied to intelligence had a long and controversial history and is considered fringe.” By whom? It was commonplace not even a generation ago and only a fool or a knave considers it fringe. Charles Murray, author of the best-selling book The Bell Curve, made just this point about a decade before you were born. Perhaps the Bee should send a more ethical reporter to cover your exploits in the future – or at least one without a conflict of interest.
Supposed allies of yours, like Ben Shapiro, will defend your rights while he misstates your points and restates discredited nonsense like “culture shapes IQ”. Sorry, Ben, but culture is the vector sum of individual actions by members of a race, which is but the extension of a family. Just as some families have different traits when taken together so too do some races. I know you know this—we once had an enjoyable kosher dinner where I discussed The Bell Curve and race with you —and I would be happy to debate you anytime and anywhere on race and IQ. Incidentally, I recently spoke with the publisher of The Bell Curve. He told me that that book could not be published today. I suspect he’s right.
Returning for a moment to my precocious high school friend:
Your parents and friends may well encourage you to keep your head down. Don’t listen to them. Hold your head high. Don’t let the bastards get you down.
So why am I doing this? Because you are right and you are not alone.
Once upon a time I, too, was a high school student disliked by my peers and discriminated against by my teachers because of my politics. I, too, promoted discussion of racial matters. I was threatened and even assaulted for my views. I persisted and succeeded despite my critics. Hell, I even made the front page of the Boston Globe for my supposedly controversial views. While a few friends I consulted recommended I give you a scholarship, I think that’s really bad advice. You are quite intelligent. Why waste it by going to college? Why bother going into debt (or spending your parents’ money) to belong to a system designed to enslave your mind when it is already free? Don’t make the mistake I did of going to college.
It seems to me that there are four things that determine a man’s success: genius, courage, networks, and knowledge.
Congratulations on achieving the first two at such a young age. Let me help you build your network and your knowledge basis.
We are oftentimes punished or persecuted for being smarter than our peers. This is the way it goes. I’m sorry it’s this way, but we will win together and by promising one another that whatever deceit is around us, we will truly “live not by lies.”
Stay tuned for more.
Our researchers shut down Facebook’s biased left-wing trending news team. They uncovered never-before-heard audio tapes of establishment Trump-hater John McCain broadcasting communist propaganda in Vietnam. Their research was successfully used in court against Rolling Stone magazine in a $7.5 million judgment. Best of all, Politico revealed that President Donald J. Trump reads printed-out GotNews articles in the Oval Office. If you’d like to hire our research team, email us at email@example.com.
