Sport, Eugenics, and Population Control

Steve Sailer on an athlete whose "6'-7" father on the Chinese men's basketball team and 6'-3" mother on the Chinese women's basketball team were repeatedly encouraged to get together by Chinese basketball officials" — Why the Chinese aren't good at basketball — and a couple who "have joined the ranks of the irresponsible" — Guardian: The Beckhams have too many children.

Beckham and Mrs. Spice had too many kids, according to the Guardian?

Well, there's one thing for that!

Good on Them!!! Makes up for the lack of kids by the "responsible."

Yes, the Beckhams have risen immeasurably in my opinion. A celebrity couple that seems to get it. God bless them.

Unfortunately, Sailer is perfectly OK with pushing contraceptives on populations of people of whom he thinks we should have fewer (primarly people of African or Latin American ancestry).

I didn't know that, and don't really care, because I go to him not for moral theology.

Of course, I want everyone, African or Latin American or Muslim or European or Asian, to obey God's first commandment to "be fruitful and multiply."

"Sailer is perfectly OK with pushing contraceptives on populations of people of whom he thinks we should have fewer (primarly people of African or Latin American ancestry)."

Sailer's position is all too close to the traditional Republican position.

I can understand the desire for making common cause and association with those we disagree with, but where is the line drawn?

Is Margaret Sanger and her Birth Control League going too far? If so, than why is Sailer who last year pushed for free shots of the abortifacient Depo-Proverva in Haiti acceptable?

Do you really want to associate with those who make the argument that abortion reduces crime? It's also true that it's "cheaper to abort than support" But that doesn't change the repulsiveness of the arguments made.

Because the association is not on some tangential unrelated subject, but on the one trick Steve Sailer is always ponying up.
