DONAHUE - THE BELL CURVE (1994) Are there differences in human intelligence based on Race?

Phil Donahue of the Donahue show interviews Charles Murray in this video (one hour 48 minutes) about his book the "The Bell Curve". National Socialist Germany certainly based its racial policies on race and IQ, and this assertion was a factor in the Second World War, and the Allied actions against Germany. This issue is not addressed in the interview but hangs over it like a "elephant" in the room. Charles is a political scientist and his book is an incredible piece of research. Donahue comes out with various questions in order to confront Charles Murray about his research. Charles responds with concise and intelligent answers to Donahue's rather silly questions. Donahue suggests that "social class" is relevant and disputes that blacks score 15 points lower in IQ tests than whites. Charles reveals the facts in regard to "social class" and informs Donahue, accordingly, the relevance of race, class and IQ. Charles defends his superb work and his views on race in the face of some rather fatuous question from Donahue. Donahue continues with making statements - more political than scientific, which shows that he either hasn't read "The Bell Curve" or he has, but doesn't understand it. The Bell Curve was an exceptional work and it created a sensation when it was released. Its conclusions were unacceptable to liberals and communists, who claim, rather incredibly, that all races are "equal" an completely unscientific approach. In a sense, those who promote the "Holocau$t" atrocity lie have the same unscientific approach, in where German documents don't mean what they say, but are full of code phrases. This rather stupid approach where "the cart is put before the horse" is echoed by the "declaration" by French establishment, that the "Holocau$t" happened technically, because the "Holocau$t happened. The interview is of very great interest, as it contrasts the intelligent responses by Charles Murray, based on his scientific research in contrast to the rather silly questions from Donahue.
