|Arthur R. Jensen, San Diego, 1996
||In 1970, there was
a great furor on the campus of U.C. Berkeley over Jensen's unpopular
views on race. I decided to do an Independent Study course on
the subject so I could delve into the topic on my own. I made
an appointment to meet Jensen in his office, and I found him to
be very friendly and nice. We talked a while, and he noticed my
Southern accent. He asked me where I was from, and I told him
I was from Tennessee.
"Oh, ye-e-s-s," he said, rubbing his chin. "Hmm, well, you know
. . . Tennessee has got the absolute lowest average IQ
of any state in the entire country!"
