Mary Sanchez’s May 14 Other Views column, Scholars claim Hispanics are intellectually inferior, says that that Jason Richwine, a Ph.D. from Harvard and, until recently, analyst of the Heritage Foundation, says that Hispanics are genetically inferior intellectually and will never fully assimilate into the U.S. society.
This is a racist statement that brings back so many academic insults that I had forgotten. According to Richwine and the Heritage Foundation, Latinos have to be categorized as low IQ, and immigration will lead us to have more of an underclass.
Maybe, as Sanchez pointed out, Richwine believes that American society should not consider us to be part of any school, technical, college and/or other institution. What a conclusion.
