Equality Of Outcome

CBC threatens regulation to fix tech's diversity
This brain-dead, vile creature has way more power than such an incredibly stupid person should be allowed to have. When stupid people are given power, stupid policy is instigated. The reason there are very few Black people in tech is because there are very few Black people who are even minimally qualified and there are absolutely no Black people who have top tier tech skills. (OK, maybe one in a million.) They cannot even come close to competing with top Asian and White engineers and programmers. It's not even a contest, not even if tons of effort were put into "leveling the playing field." Genetics is destiny.

What you say is very true, but some will choose to interpret your words as racist. I don't see it that way. Why are the majority of players in the NBA Black? Physical skills and cognitive skills are based on genetically controlled physical structures. While to some degree hard work can mitigate lack of genetic support for a skill, it cannot overcome lack of the necessary physical structure. Statistics across the board show that Blacks on average are simply incapable of performing at the level of Whites or Asians. Hispanics tend to fall somewhere in between. Certainly there are individuals in any group that are higher or lower than the average for their group and so there is significant overlap between groups (which is why there are some Whites in the NBA, for instance), but exceptions are exceptions. The point here is that it makes no more sense to legislate hiring quotas for tech companies than it does to make such quotas for NBA teams. That should be obvious for any person who is capable of rational thought, but apparently not all people are capable of rational thought and we can thank genetics for that!

Is it really the tech sector that has the diversity problem? Why are people like Maxine Waters focusing on the industry to make hiring exceptions instead of blaming their own cultural flaws like rap music which promotes ignorance and stupidity? If she had a lick of common sense and decency she'd be out there criticizing those groups for dumbing down their own culture instead of trying to force the industry to hire those that are unqualified.

Truth be told the differences in races pales in comparison to the difference among geographical cultures. When is the last time you heard of a Pygmy playing professional basketball, or winning the Boston Marathon or heard of the Mongoloids being responsible for the advancement of mathematical concepts? To suggest the hiring of people based upon their race instead of their qualifications is the very definition of racism. Figure out and eliminate the cause of cultural differences instead of blaming everyone else for your shortcomings. Stop acting like there is a math gene responsible or blaming it on others and maybe those in need would have a chance of pulling themselves up by their own bootstraps.

No one knows the precise details, but there is no doubt that both culture and genetics contribute to intelligence. There may not be a math gene, but there is little doubt that there are cognitive structures which enable mathematical and logical thinking. (Most likely these structures are linked to a couple dozen different genes.) Like all structures of the body they form in accordance to genetic blueprints, so to speak. The question is what percent of intelligence is due to culture and what percent is due to genetics. More importantly, do people with better genetics for intelligence gravitate towards cultural situations which support their need to develop their intelligence? Do people with poor genetics for intelligence shun cultural and social patterns which support intelligence? I think the answer is clear and for that reason I estimate that ninety percent of intelligence is due to genetic factors and that only a ten percent shift, up or down, can be blamed on culture or educational experiences. However, there is plenty that can be done to sabotage intelligence in terms of nutrition, exposure to toxins, head injuries, oxygen deprivation, etc. Notice that most of these are physical assaults which damage physical structures. Also lack of access to education and training can slow the development of skills, but they don't have a lot of effect on raw intelligence.

Pulling up by bootstraps isn't necessary at this point in history in the USA. There are more than enough opportunities for anybody and everybody. Many choose not to take advantage of the opportunities, but most just don't have what it takes to take advantage of the opportunities. Since the 1960s our society has gone to great lengths to provide educational opportunities to everyone. If education could overcome genetics, then all differences in achievement would have been erased long ago!

Also pertinent. I recall this post from a month or so ago in one of the board meeting threads:

Jordan Peterson | The Most Terrifying IQ Statistic
He tries to be nice about it, but facts are facts. You can't blame the education system. Peterson says no amount of money will change this statistic.

Also pertinent and from another thread:
sandman wrote:Why black Americans are getting less sleep
This might be the dumbest fake documentary I have ever seen! A problem with victimology is that the cause and the effect are confused, which results in a very inaccurate and dysfunctional understanding of reality. Black communities self-sabotage. It's their own fault that people living in those communities can't sleep. One of the hallmarks of a ghetto is noise. People can't sleep well when it is noisy. Exhausted people can get a few hours of sleep in a noisy environment, but they can't get enough sleep to remain mentally alert and physically healthy. Instead of trying to blame others for their problems, Blacks should put their own houses in order.
