Speaking of Bell Curves

If you’ve never actually read The Bell Curve, but want to, there’s now a quick and easy way to do it.

On Friday, AR ran a story about Richard Nixon’s private race realism.  In it, TBC co-author Richard Herrnstein’s famous 1971 essay, “I.Q.,” in The Atlantic, is mentioned.  More than that, someone scanned in the actual essay and uploaded it, whereas it was not available in full form online before.  My suggestion is to download it and save it to as many hard drives as you can, because if The Atlantic never made it fully available online on its own, it must be because they don’t want it online, therefore, they’ll DMCA the Tyrone Sheeeet out of that beyotch once they find out it’s up.

The whole thing is worth reading, but if you want to read TBC in quick-and-easy form, go to page 16 of the PDF, which is page 58 of the printed magazine, and start at the drop cap.  That is both the scaffolding and the inspiration for the more (in)famous work he co-authored with Charles Murray 23 years later.
