‘1950’s Officials fear of West Indian Jobless’ (Daily Telegraph report 29th September 2012) ‘Officals feared the ‘disturbing’ prospect of rising numbers of unemployed West Indians in Britain after the mass immmigration of the 1950’s, according to the newly reased documents (which also stated that the then number of immigrants in work had reached ‘saturation point’). ‘The Secretary of State for the Colonies wrote in a letter dated Oct 1 1955 that ‘The prospect of an increasing number of unemployed West Indians in this country is a disturbing one which it is in the interests of West Indies Governments, of her Majesty’s Government and of the West Indies peoples concerned to avoid.‘
‘Half of UK’s Young Black Males are unemployed.’ Guardian Headline 9th March 2012. The figures also show that the youth unemployment rate for black people increased at almost twice the rate for white 16-24-year olds since the start of the recession in 2008. Unemployment among young black males, the worst affected group, has doubled in three years rising from 28.8% to 55.9%.
The London Riots were black in origin and there was a hugely disproportionate number of blacks amongst the rioters. ‘These riots were about race. Why ignore the fact?’ Katherine Barbalsingh. Daily Telegraph article, Aug 7th 2011
IQ and Race
Blacks in Britain have an average IQ of 86 (almost exactly the same as Blacks in the USA) (Richard Lynn: The Global Bell Curve p88). The white mean is 100.
Immigrant African Blacks, selected for education, tend to be more intelligent than Afro-Caribbeans.
Race and Crime
‘The Bell Curve’ shows that IQ predicts success in education, jobs and training.
Low IQ predicts child abuse, crime and delinquency, health, accident proneness, having a child out of wedlock, getting a divorce after 5 years’ marriage and even smoking during pregnancy. (J Philippe Rushton: ‘Race Evolution and Behaviour’ (Abridged Edition P48).
‘It is of interest, for example to wonder where the 15-20 cubic centimetres of grey matter that differentiates the races is located. Gordon (1987) has demonstrated that black-white differences in the prevalence of delinquency can be accounted for by their differences in mean IQ and suggested that the same relation may hold for adult criminality.’
‘Ellis also analysed rape from an r/K perspective linking forced copulation to an r-reproductive strategy. Regarding race differences he theoretically derived the prediction that ‘blacks should have higher rape rates than whites and whites should in turn have higher rates than orientals’. As (can be seen) from interntional data, Ellis’s prediction is confirmed’. (Extract from Canadian Journal of Criminology, 1990, 32, 315-334 ‘Race and Crime, a Reply to Roberts and Gabor’; J. Philippe Rushton}
[NB In ecology,’r/K selection theory relates to the selection of combinations of traits in an organism that trade off between quantity and quality of offspring.
The focus upon either increased quantity of offspring at the expense of individual parental investment or reduced quantity of offspring with a corresponding increased parental investment, varies widely, seemingly to promote success in particular environments’. Wikipedia]
