    Richwine would have been a hero in Nazi Germany.

    Bob Herbert's comment on Murray and Herrnstein's "Bell Curve" applies as well to Richwine's racist theories:
    "Columnist Bob Herbert, writing for The New York Times, described the book as "a scabrous piece of racial pornography masquerading as serious scholarship." "Mr. Murray can protest all he wants," wrote Herbert; "his book is just a genteel way of calling somebody a nigger."[28]

        " Richwine has written for an online paleoconservative publication owned by white nationalists. As soon as his opponents got whiff of this, the game was over. He resigned from Heritage last week."

          So he apologizes and life goes on.

            Harvard should apologize for approving his dissertation.

              They were satisfied with him even after, what does that say about the "elite"?

    I wish I knew how these sick individuals were spawned; maybe we could interrupt the process. There's no room for this kind of bigotry in the 21st century.

    Here's the story of how Harvard dropped the ball in the case of Richwine:

    Note: Charles Murray of "Bell Curve" fame played an unofficial but prominent role. Figures.
