  1. Institutionalized Ignorance

    by , 01-14-2019 at 05:13 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)

    Specifically, Doctor Watson is cited as having said, “There’s a “difference on the average between blacks and whites on IQ tests,” he said. “I would say the difference is ... genetic.” He also said he took no joy in his conclusion. The situation ...

    Breathe like a little beaver. Shouldn't we all acknowledge the American Idols? It is amazing to discover the kernel lies inside of us.
