Judgment and Guidance

Jpod:

Our own Roger Clegg noted last year that “Birth rates for unmarried women vary widely by race and Hispanic origin … Among African Americans, 68.2 percent of births are illegitimate, versus 23.0 percent for non-Hispanic whites.”

Meanwhile, so far as males are concerned, the Bureau of Justice reports that “At midyear 2004 there were 4,919 black male prison and jail inmates per 100,000 black males in the United States, compared to 1,717 Hispanic male inmates per 100,000 Hispanic males and 717 white male inmates per 100,000 white males.”

Under the circumstances, to say, as Steve Sailer does, that African Americans “tend to possess poorer native judgment than members of better-educated groups,” and “need stricter moral guidance from society”

does not seem to me very outrageous.

Unless, that is, you believe that it is ill-mannered to talk about these things at all… in which case you had better take the matter up with Roger Clegg and the Bureau of Justice for their “shocking,” “unspeakable,” and “tasteless” breaches of etiquette.
