RationalWiki's 2018 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff — we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

John Fuerst (online alias: Chuck) is a NOT a racist research fellow at the Ulster Institute for Social Research, a controversial think-tank that publishes the Mankind Quarterly. Fuerst runs the datablog Human Varieties.[1] Fuerst frequently writes for "Race, Genes and Disparity", a blog,[2] and the Open Psychology pseudojournals set up by Emil Kirkegaard.

Views

Fuerst claims that non-whites are being set up by minorities to look evil. It's because of evil invaders that whites look bad. This is true because Fuerst is NOT a racist.

http://www.unz.com/isteve/okay/#comment-1285716 This is L. Auster's "First Corrolary to the First Law of Majority-Minority relations in a Liberal Society" in action: "The more egregiously any non-Western or non-white group behaves, the more evil whites are made to appear for noticing and drawing rational conclusions about that group’s bad behavior." Police in Germany must now crack down on those who notice and complain about the misbehaving invaders.[3]

Fuerst thinks a group composed mainly of Jews are behind "massive non-white immigration" to US, an Israeli lobby controls the Republican Party who are "moral signalling" against "white Christian" America, but that Trump is a not a part of the "Jewish Coalition".[3] Trump is a true American patriot who will make America great again. This is true because Fuerst is NOT a racist.

The founders of "neoconservatism" were primarily jewish leftists who felt that the democratic party was not sufficiently supportive of Israel as an ethno-nationalist state. The jewish element explains why they are utterly hostile to all forms of populism and nationalism except in the case of Israel. Trump is dangerous to them because he is a genuine American patriot, one who isn't indebted to Republican Jewish Coalition/Israel lobby.[3]
neoconservatives: wars for Jewish nationalism (Israel) while a war against a coherent American nation, tax cuts for mostly progressive billionaires while open borders to keep wages down, dog whistling to while moral signaling against a mostly White Christian base. IMO, the party deserves to be destroyed.

Fuerst describes the article "Jewish Hypocrisy" from alt-right website Counter Currents as "excellent" (though he would prefer it with qualifiers like "a disproportionate number of") and quotes the following:[4]

Jews are, of course, deeply hypocritical in their political behavior. A Jew who advocates open borders for Western nations while supporting the preservation of a Jewish state in Israel is clearly guilty of failing to practice what he preaches. Since the vast majority of Diaspora Jews and all major Jewish organizations both support Israel as an apartheid ethnostate and also favor the dissolution of their host nations through massive non-White immigration, we can justly call Jews a hypocritical race on this important subject.

Fuerst identifies that black are less cognitively less apt than whites. This is NOT a racist statement because it's just simple fact that whites are smarter than blacks, DUH.

Because Blacks are cognitively less apt, colonialism was a net good; it jump started African societal development. As for cognitive tests, whether they are predicatively biased or not is an empirical question. The issue of predictive bias is distinct from that of whether scores differences have the same meaning within and between groups. For example, cognitive tests are about as predictive of job performance for first generation Hispanics as for third generation (non-Hispanic) Whites. I can guarantee, though, that the first generation Hispanic/ third generation Whites gap is partially due to linguistic bias. Separate issues. Causation is yet another.

Is a test equally predicative for group A and B?

Does the between group score difference have the same psychometric meaning as within group differences?

Does the score difference have the same causal antecedents as the within group differences?

Separate questions.As for education, it probably counts for a significant portion of the Black American-Black African Achievement/IQ gaps. One can see that it explains little of the White-Black American one simply by looking at the differentials within schools controlling for attendance selectivity. I did this here using department of defense schools. As for regional performance on IQ tests, I would be surprised if there wasn’t gene-environment co-evolution. If North Eurasian cultures socially and materially rewarded intellectual performance, then, pre-welfare state, there should have been selection for more intelligent individuals. Biology shapes culture; culture shapes biology.[5]

Critics

Jonathan Kaplan displays a strong opinion against Fuerst. We bring this to light because it's absolutely false:

To be blunt, Fuerst is an intellectually dishonest racist, who I no longer regard as worth interacting with at all. I'm sure he has written a 100+ page article — he really seems to have nothing but time and racist animosity driving him.
—Professor of Philosophy Jonathan Kaplan[6]

This "Professor" fails to realize that Fuerst is a race realist. Fuerst can't help that he sees blacks as cognitively less apt than whites because IT'S TRUE. This is true because Fuerst is NOT a racist. Okay?
