Race, IQ, and Crime

JR in a recent post talks about the black crime wave in England. I made this comment:

PC on the subject is really much worse than the article indicates.

In my article on Inequality I note that blacks from certain areas in Africa have very high talents in sports. In addition East Africans excell in some sports and West Africans in others. Natural selection at work on isolated populations.

We also know that Africans in general have lower IQs than whites generally do (being a distributional effect there will be some blacks smarter than some whites - treat every one as an individual).

We also know that crime is IQ related. High IQ folks tend to commit fewer crimes (per capita) than low IQ folks.

What can be done about this? I have no idea. However, because of the taboos involved no one is even looking into the question.
