OK, before I post this link, let me just give the very, very fervent warning that the piece I'm going to link to is not meant for anyone who's overly sensitive, prone to high blood pressure, under 18, or, in any way, outraged by what the political establishment denounces as "hate." ("Hate" being something that our wonderful gov't schools teach us is bad in and of itself.) OK, with me so far? Promsie you're not going to go cry to Mommy? Good, now be careful not to be drinking anything while you read this as you'll be prone to spit it at the screen in a fit of hearty laughter. Here, you go. Enjoy!

Awesome! Here's another good article from that site. http://www.silentsurf.com/cgi-bin/nph-index.cgi/010010A/687474702s7777772r76616r67756172646r6577736r6574776s726o2r636s6q2s323030352s2r2r2s6q6s76696535342r68746q http://www.silentsurf.com/cgi-bin/nph-index.cgi/010010A/687474702s7777772r76616r67756172646r6577736r6574776s726o2r636s6q2s323030352s2r2r2s6q6s76696533322r68746q Negroes, Jews, and Chinamen beware.

Seriously though, everyone who writes on that site has an IQ of 100 or less. They have an extensive section on how circumcision is a jewish negro plot to make white males impotent or some shit.

They write a lot of funny stuff; of course that doesn't mean I'd want to invite them to a dinner party. For the record, I find gangsta rap amusing as well--although it doesn't often include commentary on social phenomena like education (wish it did, though).

I actually saw VNN a long time ago, linked from a modernhumorist article. http://www.modernhumorist.com/mh/0205/ebert/ I would be very surprised if any of these troglodytes reads books on a regular basis. Grampa Simpson: I was on the PT-109 with John F. Kennedy. We were the first to discover his horrible secret.
[flashback]
John Kennedy: Er um ah, Ich bin ein Berliner.
Grampa Simpson: He's a Nazi, get him!

The ed forum mods are probably going to start hating me for how far off the topic of education my threads here can get. The main point was just a funny article on affirmative action programs, the supposed racism of the SAT, and the educational gap. I will admit though, that the name "Tylenol Washington" made my sides hurt a little! LMAO! Anyway, you said something interesting: "Seriously though, everyone who writes on that site has an IQ of 100 or less." While I'm no more fond of their overall agenda than you are (afterall, I'd be next on their list after they finished with blacks and Jews), I don't think being racist or anti-Semitic is ipso facto proof of low intelligence. Many great thinkers of the past and even the present have had politically incorrect views on race and religion. H.L. Mencken wrote a number of unflattering things about Jews. Henry Ford even published a book, which can be found on the internet even today with a laundry list of grievances against the Jews. The philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once described Jews as "great masters of the lie." Karl Marx, an ethnic Jew himself (though raised Christian), wrote vicious remarks on how to best address the Jewish Question. Heck, even Benjamin Franklin--maybe the greatest and wisest of all Founding Fathers--once said, "I warn you, gentlemen, if you do not exclude the Jews forever, your children's children will curse you in your graves." I could quote T.S. Elliot, Woodrow Wilson, Harry Truman, Richard Nixon, etc., etc.--and many other people who are certainly something other than stupid. None of this is to say that these Gentlemens' opinions make anti-Semitism or racism automatically valid (that would be an appeal to authority fallacy), but what it DOES prove is that it's very possible for a perfectly intelligent person--with an IQ well over 100--to have race-and-religion-based prejudices. Sorry to go off on a rant, but I just can't stand smug ad hominem dismissiveness. Sentiments like that can lead to Soviet-styled "re-education" or "treatment" to cure the person's supposed "ignorance" or "mental illness." [Yes, there are many shrinks who consider anti-Semitism a form of mental illness.] Also it allows people to sidestep the actual substance of an argument by just replying with, "Well, only in-bred, buck-toothed, squirrel-eating, 70 IQ trailer trash believe things like that."

I absolutely agree that you can't judge someone's intelligence based on their beliefs. However, it is my sincere opinion that, disregarding any of their beliefs, most of those guys who write on that site are idiots. When I read the initial article, I didn't like it, even though at that time I didn't know it was on a racist site. It's not particularly offensive, and I didn't even notice all the hoity toity Ivy leaguers had Jewish names. I found his style to be stilted and a poor aping of that of real newspaper articles. And while I agree that affirmative action is bad, I did not find the article convincing. And he's one of the better guys on there. Maybe later I'll post some links to racists of whom I approve.
