Reading recommendation: Byline Times

I already like the article in Byline Times called Alt-Right Pseudoscience 'Free Speech' & Scientific Racism by Nafeez Ahmed.

And then I saw where they linked to Pinkerite (highlighted):

In 2016, Quillette published an article by eugenicist and incoming Boris Johnson aide, Andrew Sabisky, who had been hired by former No. 10 chief advisor Dominic Cummings. In his piece, Sabiski – who believes black people are genetically predisposed to have lower IQs – lamented “the white death”, which “sits on a throne of ethnic diversity” and is driven by globalisation and mass immigration. 
Lehmann has also interacted favourably online with the Dutch far-right eugenicist Emil Kirkegaard. 
Claire Lehmann did not respond to Byline Times‘ request for comment.
Numerous Quillette contributors also sit on Young’s FSU advisory council or board including Lee Jussim, who defended the famous Google memo attacking gender diversity; the HJS anti-Black Lives Matter contributor Konstantin Kisin; ex-HJS director Douglas Murray; classicist Jaspreet Singh Boparai; IQ researcher James Flynn; and CEO of Koch-funded campus ‘free speech’ lobby Pamela Paresky.
Quillette’s output on race is eagerly sought after by white supremacist groups, with its articles regularly republished by American Renaissance, the far-right platform funded by the neo-Nazi Pioneer Fund – whose scientists and research Quillette editor Toby Young staunchly defends.

And that's a passel of Quillette/IDWs in this article: Douglas Murray, Toby Young, Claire Lehmann, plus mentions of Lee Jussim and Linda Gottfredson.
