TWCS has a superb post on Afro-Criminality:
Whence Afro criminality?
“As well, Afros who emigrate to countries that never practiced slavery or colonialism still commit more crimes than other groups there…
Disproportionate Afro immigrant crime in France, Switzerland, Australia, London, Canada.”
HBD Chick finds that PISA scores in Spain correlated with Latitude… (Apparently, the same holds for Japan: Japanese north–south gradient in IQ predicts differences in stature, skin color, income, and homicide rate)
… and uncovers the church’s biosocial egalitarian engineering project:
thomas aquinas on too much outbreeding
from his Summa Theologica [pg. 2749]:
“The degrees within which consanguinity has been an impediment to marriage have varied according to various times…. [T]he Old Law permitted other degrees of consanguinity, in fact to a certain extent it commanded them, to wit that each man should take a wife from his kindred, in order to avoid confusion of inheritances: because at that time the Divine worship was handed down as the inheritance of the race. But afterwards more degrees were forbidden by the New Law which is the law of the spirit and of love, because the worship of God is no longer handed down and spread abroad by a carnal birth but by a spiritual grace: wherefore it was necessary that men should be yet more withdrawn from carnal things by devoting themselves to things spiritual, and that love should have a yet wider play. Hence in olden time marriage was forbidden even within the more remote degrees of consanguinity, in order that consanguinity and affinity might be the sources of a wider friendship; and this was reasonably extended to the seventh degree, both because beyond this it was difficult to have any recollection of the common stock, and because this was in keeping with the sevenfold grace of the Holy Ghost. Afterwards, however, towards these latter times the prohibition of the Church has been restricted to the fourth degree, because it became useless and dangerous to extend the prohibition to more remote degrees of consanguinity. Useless, because charity waxed cold in many hearts so that they had scarcely a greater bond of friendship with their more remote kindred than with strangers: and it was dangerous because through the prevalence of concupiscence and neglect men took no account of so numerous a kindred, and thus the prohibition of the more remote degrees became for many a snare leading to damnation.”
