At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter. All that matters are the statistics, not how the numbers ended up that way. Let us take an example: Group B has a crime rate 7X that of Group A. Who cares whether it’s due to their genes or environment or God cursed them or it’s something in the air? I am sitting here in my country, Group A’s country. We are thinking of taking in a bunch of Group B immigrants. We figure they are going to have 7X elevated crime rate over our own people. Why would it matter what’s causing the elevated crime rate? Genes? Environment? Why is this even an important question that we need to debate? If I were sitting on a committee of Group A’s country trying to figure out whether we should flood ourselves with Group B’s people, I would say, “No, we should not.” You figure these people are going to have a 7X elevated crime rate over our own. If you want to be very selective, set an IQ limit for them – in the US, I might say “Ok, take Group B’s people, but only if they have an IQ of 100+.” Or you can say, “Ok, we will take them, but only if they have an advanced degree. Otherwise we are turning down 99.5 Can someone please tell me why this is bad policy? Can someone please tell me why it is so important that we learn whether it’s genes or environment that’s causing Group B to act up so much? Why is this such a crucial question for everyone? Someone fill me in here.
