Steve Sailer: The President’s Prejudices
Steve Sailer writes:
Perhaps blacks get in trouble with the law more than do whites (much less East Asians) for reasons similar to why they do so well in sports and entertainment?
For instance, blacks tend more to live in the moment. Spontaneity and improvisation are great assets for jazz soloists and running backs, but they can be detriments in obeying the law. (Or, in the case of Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell, who recently tweeted an indiscreet illustration of a white cop getting his throat slashed, merely managing one’s social-media presence.)
Similarly, blacks do best in sports roles that put a premium on disruption and destruction. (…)
And who knows how many football heroes skate out of trouble with the police? For example, Nicole Brown Simpson frequently called 911 to report domestic violence, but when the LAPD arrived they tended to want instead to have their picture taken with O.J. The main exception was Det. Mark Fuhrman, who treated Mrs. Simpson’s worries more seriously. But we know he was bad.
