Earlier this weekend, the NY Times published an article about the “problem” of Asians scoring too high on the entrance exam for Stuyvesant and other “specialized” NYC high schools.
Of course, HBD denialism is in full force, because the high Asian scores are strictly explained as result of Asians studying too much, and this is bad for Asians (because they waste their childhood studying for tests) and bad for blacks (because… well I’m not sure why it’s bad for blacks, because if studying is bad, and blacks aren’t doing it, then that should be good for blacks).
There are those who have the opinion that if the truth of HBD were widely known, this would be really bad for blacks, because they would give up or get low self esteem or something like that. But it seems to me that blacks already believe in HBD and are aware that they aren’t as smart as Asians, which is why they don’t bother, and why the NAACP prefers to sue the state over the admissions test rather than tell black parents that they should make their kids study harder.
I think that to blacks, HBD is equivalent to the n-word. Blacks relish in calling each other “nigger” while they get outrageously angry at any white person who dares to say the word “nigger.” It’s the same thing with HBD. Among themselves, blacks behave consistent with the belief that they aren’t as smart as whites or Asians, but get outraged at any white person who dares to hold to publicly state that, or even those that dare to publicly state that blacks should just study harder.
Will the issue over testing finally wake Asians up to the fact that blacks are their enemies, and any political party that is the friend of blacks, such as the Democratic Party, is the enemy of Asians?

Regarding the issue of whether or not studying helps, I am sure that the obsessive Asian studying is boosting their scores by at least half a standard deviation and maybe even a whole standard deviation over whites, which makes it more difficult for white kids to get into Stuyvesant. But blacks are so far behind Asians with respect to their average genetic intelligence that there is no amount of studying they could ever do to make up the IQ gap.
