What bothered me about the survey was the time discrepancy between the two tests. They measured IQ of children, then waited twenty or thirty years to
test for conservatism and racism. Why not run the tests at the same time and control for other factors? Why not consider the other variables?
I'm sorry, I'm not being clear, let me try again. Take a child with high IQ. He's more likely to go to college, right? Colleges in this country
at least are notoriously left-leaning, so he's more likely to become an adult with left-leaning, or liberal, philosophies.
The low IQ child is less likely to go to college, more likely to be poor, more likely to live in a bad part of town, and might experience events which
lead to a more racist attitude.
I don't think the study is a good one.
