How does one objectively accept contributions in this field given the questionable ideology of many of the field’s contributors? There is now a polarized formal debate regarding black intelligence at all levels of intelligence study. One can not pick up an introductory level psychology textbook or read through the literature without encountering at least one reference suggesting a possible inherent intellectual defect that may compromise black intelligence.

If the entire subfield of Intelligence in Psychology has been bank rolled by an agency with vested interests in proving the inherent inferiority of certain population groups then why are contributions from this subfield not under closer scrutiny? From Audrey Shuey to J.P. Rushton, there seems to be no disconnection between academic racism, intelligence and black dehumanization. Indeed, it appears that the entire testing industry and a number of widely accepted intelligence theories are the products of a longstanding tradition of racism and advocacy.

There is now a polarized formal debate regarding black intelligence at all levels of intelligence study. One can not pick up an introductory level psychology textbook or read through the literature without encountering at least one reference suggesting a possible inherent intellectual defect that may compromise black intelligence. What is more shocking is the fact that the sources for this information all share a common relationship: They are not only affiliated with dangerous organizations, but, they are also closely affiliated with one another!

I have been trying to understand how this level of disregard for human dignity could possibly make the textbooks; or how psychology can nurture this kind of venomous onslaught* Whether Cyril Burt, Audrey Shuey, Hans Eysenck, Arthur Jensen, Richard Lynn, or the Psychology establishment in general, one thing is certain: Black people are under attack, and this attack is directed at what is commonly understood to be that trait which distinguishes man from beast, “Intelligence.”
