Blacks, Marxism, and Achievement
by David Sims
THE GENETIC cause for the Marxist views of so many Blacks is a generally lower IQ among Blacks as compared with Whites. The difference in the racial average IQ between US-resident Blacks (who are on average 20%-White mulattoes) and US-resident Whites is about 15 points. Whites average 100. US-resident Blacks average 85.
There are two well-studied consequences of having an IQ between 70 and 90. One of them is unjustified self-esteem in one’s own mental prowess. Blacks, even the less intelligent ones, often think that they’re smart enough to do anything… until you give them the job of actually doing it. That’s when they begin to fantasize about imaginary achievements (Black space programs), to make excuses about not producing any real ones (White privilege), and to lie about their past glorious accomplishments (ancient Black civilizations). The other consequence is resentment, which results when Blacks observe Whites doing jobs of a mentally challenging nature that most Blacks can’t do. That resentment provokes hostility, and it motivates Blacks to shift blame away from their own shortcomings to “White racism.”
Cultures differ, and our culture is one of the more technologically advanced cultures. Nearly all of our most highly paid jobs — technical, clerical, legal — are jobs that require a high IQ to be competitive in the labor market.
Because Blacks have an IQ distribution that is downwardly offset from that of Whites by about 15 points, they will (on average) find themselves out-competed by Whites for the best jobs, and the result will be a generally lower socio-economic status. Just as we can see around us today.
Now, in an attempt to give Black people a boost up, we have Affirmative Action laws, racial hiring quotas, and Equal Opportunity requirements that burden employers with less qualified workers than they might otherwise have. And, despite all of these remedial efforts, Blacks still lag behind.
What the Marxists tell you about “systemic racism” is false, but it is even more false than you might think. It is Blacks who have the privileges from the system. But their inborn racial disadvantages with respect to living in a technically advanced culture are so large that these privileges haven’t been enough to compensate.
