I have stopped listing to Sam Harris because of this interview
Ezra and his ilk are true fake newsers. He and the others are regressive-lefters who cannot think past how to toast their poptarts..
Murray nor Harris are in any way racist.
Sam is right on with this issue. And so is Gad Saad,... without the science and the data being evaluated from a scientific point of view nothing can get changed.
Ezra and that crowd are some of the most dangerous to our freedoms. They are all about feelings and misinterpretation. No one with reason can think otherwise of them.
I agree. To say there was/is no scientific disagreement over Murray's work is preposterous and smacks of Trumpian alt right logic. I stopped following Harris after he tangled with Chomsky regarding issues in the Middle East. He was over-matched; Chomsky chewed him up.
Yeah, I didn't listen to that, but did listen to his interview with Ezra Klein about that exchange. Sam Harris fell out of favor with me a long time ago, but this exchange has completely sealed the deal, I have no interest in paying attention to anything that he writes or says anymore.
Here is that interview with Ezra Klein:
Starting with the premise that blacks are dumber than whites and then blathering away for hours AS IF it was a real thing. Sort of like positing a "gawd" and blathering away about it ad nauseam, yes?
Okay, back to reality: MLK, President Obama & Michele Obama, Shirley Chisholm, Booker T & the MG's, Marvin Gaye, Malcolm X, Oprah, etc etc etc etc etc
Fairness paragraph: Drumpy, Manafort, Sessions, DeVos, Ted Bundy, Charlie Manson, Son of Sam, every white weirdo who Ever shot up a school.......
See my drift here? And why I Hate labelers & labels........
