Campos also flirts with an understanding of HBD with this passage:
To get into a top law school you generally need a very high LSAT score and a very high GPA from a selective college or university. The way to get these things is to be born with a predisposition to excel at certain sorts of intellectual mazes, to work at least reasonably hard at developing that predisposition, and, crucially, to grow up benefiting from a level of socioeconomic status that will aid you in the noble quest for a 170 LSAT and a 3.9 from Williams.
Note that he writes “born with a predisposition to excel at certain sorts of intellectual mazes” which is another way of describing being born with high IQ genes. This is probably as close as he can get to acknowledging HBD without being branded a racist.
I don’t know how much he has thought about his assertion that being born to a high socioeconomic status family will aid one in “the noble quest for a 170 LSAT and a 3.9 from Williams.” I believe that the LSAT score is primarily influenced by genotype, but that getting a 3.9 from Williams has a higher correlation with being born to a family that considers it important for their children to get high GPAs from elite schools and knows how to inculcate this desire in their children and provide a path for them to get there (a path which often involves elite private primary and secondary schools).
Do read Campos’ post; there’s a lot of great stuff in there that I think he gets 100% correct. I was vindicated in having high hopes for a guy who wrote a book called The Obesity Myth.
