    Did you even read beyond the title of this (rather dishonest) article? At no point is there any evidence that Black african IQs taken as a whole are higher than white British IQs. In fact the opposite is true.
    I just lost it here, how hilarious some posts a link to an article and doesn't actually understand it
    They actually undermine their own argument.

    The contradictions in lefty ideology are so blatant. Its hilarious.

    "Gender is a social construct" but homosexuality is genetic and transsexuals really are born in the "wrong" body.

    According to lefty logic the only thing that is genetically determined is whether you are gay or not. Not the clearly obvious genetic differences between the races and the sexes.
    Thankfully, not all lefties are neo-progressives.

    The self centered part doesn't really surprise me, but it's still a little disappointing.

    The inconsistencies though, my God.
    Surely freedom of choice dictates they may support who they choose. For me however, I am conservative through and through and always have been.

    The rampancy of this is incredible.

    I was looking at the live feed about the student protests on twitter, to gauge the reaction from people about what they thought.

    One comment caught my eye and the woman who posted it essentially said that the universities were providing an optional service and students were free to take it or leave it yadda yadda yadda. I clicked on her profile to get a better sense of her political views... of course she was a tory. I then noticed she mentions her husband is a cab driver, so I search her name along with "uber" and sure enough there are endless posts about how bad uber is and why the government should interfere in securing her husband's stranglehold on London's taxiing services. Not for "the market" now is she? Unbelievable.

    For balance I'll mention I've also seen some chavs from my secondary school days moan about benefit scroungers and then moaning about some form of benefits being taken away from them not soon after.
    What about all the Labour supporters and champagne socialists who spit in the face of working class like myself?
