Race science in action

FROM THE AP:

The NFL on Wednesday pledged to halt the use of “race-norming” — which assumed Black players started out with lower cognitive function — in the $1 billion settlement of brain injury claims and review past scores for any potential race bias.

The practice made it harder for Black retirees to show a deficit and qualify for an award. The standards were created in the 1990s in hopes of offering more appropriate treatment to dementia patients, but critics faulted the way they were used to determine payouts in the NFL concussion case.

The article doesn't say what the standards were based on, but my money's on The Bell Curve.

This is what happens when race science is the used in real-world situations. Pure discrimination.

I'm waiting for the race mongers to speak up about this: the Quillette gang, Charles Murray, Steven Pinker, Jerry Coyne, Michael Shermer, Andrew Sullivan, etc.
