John Ray
is a braver man than I.

The implication is, as so many other studies suggest, that it is the African gene pool that is responsible for the lower black IQs.
The only policy implication that I see as flowing from an acceptance of this in a decent society is that we may often have to treat some blacks as we do any other handicapped people -- kindly. On the other hand, a policy founded on the assumption that the differences do not exist -- as “Affimative action” is -- must in the circumstances be a cruel hoax that imposes unrealistic expectations on many blacks, discriminates unfairly against many individual whites and discredits the achievements of the many blacks who can achieve well under their own steam.

There is no doubt John is qualified to talk about psychometrics. He also has some data on IQ differences between Ashkenazi and Sephardim Jews.
