Charles Murray and Richard Herrnstein (deceased) the authors of the Bell Curve, had both a socio-economic and academic agenda for their work. Charles Murray is not a psychologist. But as an ideological right wing conservative, he shared some deep seated anti-Black and anti-poor sentiments almost similar to those held by most conservative Republicans such as Newt Gingrich.
As you realize the Bell Curve might become the new Republic text-book on how to view blacks as criminals due to lack of intelligence, and therefore, irreformable nor educable, and therefore, only fit for less intellectual work and for jails! As you realize the Republicans would rather build more jails and cut crime prevention programs. The logic behind is found in the Bell Curve and the White supremacist pysche which is pervaded with "negrophobia."
Whereas in the antebellum South, the Blacks were lynched, today, they are intellectually, castrated and then lynched in jails! The process is the same and the results are equally horrible. In the place of physical castration by the hooded Klansmen, we now have intellectual castration by Whitesupremacists in the academia in the likes of Auther Jenson, Richard Herrsnstein and Charles Murray. The Bell Curve has implications for the genocide of the Blacks as inherently in- ferior beings only prone to evil and crime. Hitler's Mein Kempf also preceded the Jewish holocaust. The world then, stood in silence until the evil was done. Therefore, it is up to us to protest against the possible misuse of research in order to promote a racist and destructive agenda, aimed at the elimination of crime and evil by elimination of the Blacks as the scapegoats for the social decay, crime and economic deppreciation in America today as was the case in Germany during the 1930s. Murray is the habinger of trouble for Africans and any Black person.

No. You're wrong. Hitler says nothing new in Mein Kampf. Its significance is only seen with hindsight because Hitler, unlike the thousands of other anti-semetic authors of his time, was a man capable of leading a great national movement and seizing power. The Black race must fear genocide as long as it remains weak, dependant and leaderless. If we had a state like Israel we would not fear for our sudden destruction, in the same way the Jews now do not. WE must secure the existence of OUR people, not rely on others being nice to us.
You're also forgetting the 4 million African children that die each year from preventable diseases. These are UN statistics, the same UN that held a conference on how Africa could REDUCE its population. You think that Black genocide should be considered in the future tense?
Therefore, it is up to us to protest against the possible misuse of research in order to promote a racist and destructive agenda, aimed at the elimination of crime and evil by elimination of the Blacks as the scapegoats for the social decay, crime and economic deppreciation in America today as was the case in Germany during the 1930s.

The reaction to the Bell Curve by many Black intellectuals reveals the level of their fixiation with the white race. A pair of white men say "Look here is scientific evidence that Blacks are inferior." Suddenly this is news and we must debate the issue. The only people who need to suddenly take the Bell Curve seriously are those Blacks who are stupid and want to keep this a secret! For those of us with any understanding of history or current affairs, the views expressed in the Bell Curve are at least 300 hundred years old. What's new? Rather than whine and bleat about what white people are doing and saying, it makes more sense to develop coherent Black solutions to Black problems.
While Black intellectuals continue to only follow a white defined agenda, continually reacting to successive white theories and actions they seem to be more concerned about holding their heads up among their white colleagues than acting as the planners and directors for their own people.
It is life that all things must serve!
I agree with you on the observation that Black intellectuals should lead and not just react to White academic White-supremcist theories! However, in as much as these theories lead to negative policies and possible systematic structures of genocide committed against blacks as criminals or poor people who do not deserve the rights to life, freedom and dignity, then, one has to oppose these theories as dangerous.
Ignoring an evil does not take it away! It is like burrying one's head in the sand infront of an approaching enemy or verocious beast, such as a lion! That makes it easier for the predator! These academic predators and demagogues are like Hitler with his crude eugenics. In this case the scapegoats are not the Jews, but the blacks! Morever, the African Blacks are said to be even more stupid/dumber than the African-American Blacks! So watch out brother! If you don't I will watch out for you in the spirit of African brotherhood and solidarity!
TOGETHER, WE STAND GREAT AND INVINCIBLE AND DIVIDED WE FALL SEPARATELY, TOGETHER! Refuses to yield to DIVIDE AND CONQUER!
