William Saletan of Slate will no doubt be resigning in solidarity with someone or other; after the Watson imbroglio he explored the available evidence and came away concluding that the case was far from closed. Saletan was widely rebutted (or at least, denounced), and he did distance himself from a controversial author he cited, Dr. Rushton.
Meanwhile, I am still puzzling over why the same white geniuses that invented these culturally biased tests couldn't rig them so that whites could out-score Asians. Oh, well - I bet if Asians had designed these tests they would have been able to rig them properly.
College campuses are one of the few places where there might be a suitable context for such a debate, so I will snip this from an old post of mine:
Ronald Bailey at Reason closes with this exhortation:
No matter who turns out to be right in the nature versus nurture debate over why there is a gap in black/white IQ scores, the idea that we must strive to treat every person as an individual, not as a representative of some group or other, seems right to me.
Well, yes, but in that case, a lot of affirmative action would go by the boards, since the campus quest for "diversity" (other than political diversity) is all about group identities.
I must have written that before the Sotomayor nomination kicked the New Haven firefighters into the news.
