Hispanic underachievement




















Here's more evidence that Hispanics are indeed assimilating... to black norms. More of them than ever--61 percent--believe that discrimination is a major problem for Latinos in preventing them from succeeding the U.S. It's just too tempting to put the blame on whitey.

Black finger-pointing has forced us to advertise the fact, no, you're not poor because the White Man hates you; you're poor because you lack general intelligence, probably for genetic reasons. I'd prefer it if this knowledge were implicit and, out of a desire to be considerate, we didn't have to make a big deal about it.  But our hand has been forced.  It is now clear that we are forced to speak out about Hispanic IQ as well (which averages about 90 or so).

That Hispanics feel discriminated against should come as no surprise. I mean, who would not resent large scale displacement of the existing population by a diaspora of poor, semi-literate peasants whose self-appointed political leaders are militantly anti-American?

We've been sold a bill of goods by the diversophiles. "Diversity" is not an advantage to be sought, it's a difficulty to be overcome. In Roissy's words: diversity + proximity = war.

Hispanic children in the US actually have an IQ of 82, 5 points lower than Mexico. Meaning were getting the left side of the bell curve. Wealthy upperclass Mexicans aren't the ones that jump over a border to go do farm labor etc.

Well, according to the GSS (which you seem to read a lot from, but only cite data that makes whites & Christians look like ethereal elves and NAMs look like bloodthirsty orcs), Whites have more negative feelings towards Blacks and Hispanics than vice versa.

Here's an example: India, a source of a "model minority", has a lower average IQ (lower 80's) than many Latin American countries (mid 80's to upper 90's)....what can you say about Indians overrepresented in medicine and engineering? I'm surprised that doesn't bug you (or most other HBDers for that matter).

Going back to GSS: Indian-Americans (filtered for US born) average a 94 IQ; 4 points higher than Mexicans, 3 points higher than Puerto Ricans, 3 points LOWER than "Other Spanish". (Yes, I realize the sample sizes are small, so it should be taken with a grain of salt).
But I know I'm wrong: Because '80-to-95-ish IQ' Indians aren't pouring in in droves like Mexicans, so why worry?...Indians are just going into careers where people get healed, and where things get built.
The other model minority, Northeast Asians (Chinese, Koreans, Japanese), certainly do score high IQ's, but you probably don't like their religious views (or lack of).

Ron, I'm curious about your opinion of this method of constructing a blind poll canvas. I suspect that of the 5 questions at least one would get to the heart of the Hispanic invasion.

One wonders why all these victims of discrimination keep flocking here, fleeing countries in which their own kind dominate, and fighting vigorously to stay here once they arrive.

The Hispanic illegitimacy rate is closing-in on the black rate.

White illegitimacy is much lower but has also soared in the past decade.

So maybe we are all "assimilating to black norms", some just more far along than others!

I don't quite understand why, but the USA gets a higher-quality Indian. Steve Sailer had a guest-poster a year or two ago who broke down U.S. Hindus by caste, and the structure was incredibly top-heavy: i.e., few low-castes and a huge share of Brahmins.
