Students, parents and staff at C.K. McClatchy High School are upset over a science fair project by a student in its elite magnet program that questioned whether certain races of people lack the intelligence to handle the programs academically challenging coursework.

LOL, somebody has balls, but no clicks for Suckramento Bee.
Forget logic and reason, feelings rule the day.
I wish I would have bought stock in the word “outrage” two years ago.
I’d be a megagazillabazillionare now.
What, really, does it accomplish to bring this up, even if it’s true? What can anyone really do about it?
We need to go back to merit based school admissions and hiring because the whole affirmative action business is what keeps this divisive discussion going.
The truth about race and intelligence is not allowed to be known.
Sorry but that concept was perpetuated by the eugenics movement of the early 20th century and it's progressive followers such as Margaret Sanger, Woodrow Wilson et al.
Science? We can’t have that...
He previously wrote a report called “The Emperor Has No Clothes.”
So the same response, I presume Dr Livingston, if the exhibit had been on “AA Athleticism” ?
What if it questioned running speed or strength?
this was an Asian student’s project.
Going as far back as Dr Wm Shockley and Yale
Possibly done to ruffle feathers.
Someone else lacks the understanding that Kaffirs or Kafirs are non believers in islam. “People who avoid the truth in islam”. I would suspect that that is the root of the expression used in South Africa as islam spread down the coastline years upon years ago.
I seriously doubt the expression is new by any stretch of the imagination.
The issue shows the lack of understanding while also showing the unwitting penetration of islam.
If you can’t identify a problem, you can’t solve it.
Being afraid to ask the question kind of gets in the way of identifying the problem.
IMO our real underlying problem is that we don’t value people for their humanity, values, and their souls. We judge on good looks, wealth, IQ.
I wonder which one’s objected and why would they unless they are affraid of the reults. In think it’s absurd to link intelligence to a particular race but what’s wrong with having a study.
Oh oh. Somebody made the mistake of looking for the TRUTH instead of just blindly accepting the liberal, PC orthodoxy! Man, is HE in trouble!
Not to mention that from what I can see in the article, his display is just spouting general observations and opinions without any math or science involved to back them up. He mentions IQ tests and academic scores but doesnt provide any supporting data. If he had some solid content to back it up, even if it was offensive to some, hed have a better leg to stand on.
And I wonder since hes an Asian kid, how he would have felt about a science fair display on Asians Are Lousy Drivers.
Dr. Charles Murray caught hell for pointing some statistical outcomes involving affirmative action. Telling the truth is no longer acceptable. Tell a lie, live a lie, be a lie. The new survival code.
