Race Realism: A Primer


Is belief in the innate equality of the cognitive meachanisms of phenotypically distinct humans, whose respective ancestors evolved separately in adaptation to different climates in different parts of the world, tenable in light of the latest science? I think that anyone who sets aside their emotions and their views on ethics and politics, and devotes one day of their life to focusing on the objective truth value of what's contained in the following sources, will be well-positioned to come to a fair conclusion.
