The Definition Of White Supremacy

One maddening thing about Charles Murray fans is that most of them aren't willing to accept the basic fact that to be a Bell Curve believer, you are by definition a white supremacist, or at least a believer in a racial hierarchy. They can console themselves with the "fact" that Teh Science says it's true!!! (not really), but that doesn't change what it is.

As Sullivan wrote once upon a time:
The notion that there might be resilient ethnic differences in intelligence is not, we believe, an inherently racist belief.

Actually it is. You can tell yourself it's a correct belief, but it's pretty much the definition of a racist belief.
