L'Hote Contra Zach Beauchamp on the Richwine Affair

This is a much, much better piece than the Beauchamp piece. And, as it turns out, Beauchamp's glosses on the IQ research are misleading in several ways, as I was inclined to think.

I actually think this piece is a little too kind to Beauchamp IMO--I don't think the point about the nature of race is very good, to be honest. Race can be a vague and non-biological category and still be a category that social scientists can avail themselves of. But I'm not going to push that point.
