Nicholas Wade's 30 year career as news editor came to abrupt end. His offense was daring to tell the truth in his new book about race realism. Whites and East Asians, Wade noted, are more adaptable to modern life than sub-Saharan blacks.
His views, apparently ran afoul of the New York Times. When one must choose between honesty and protecting the integrity of the naked emperor, nudity takes precedence. In this case, it's the cultural Marxist narrative that requires obeisance.
And so Wade joins the ranks of John Derbyshire and Jason Richwine.
Richwine was sent packing from Heritage Foundation after his PhD dissertation at Harvard roiled the waters of political correctness. Richwine offended the sensitivities of those who embrace the official lie that all immigrants are intellectually equal
Debyshire was pink-slipped from his position at National Review after he noted that hanging out with blacks could cause troubles for his children. Derb's children who, by the way, are half Chinese.
From our source we read:
Nicholas Wade, a British-born science reporter and editor for more than 30 years with The New York Times, is no longer with the newspaper — just days after the release of his latest book, in which he depicts blacks with roots in sub-Saharan Africa as genetically less adapted to modern life than whites and Asians.Continue reading ►
Was The New York Times uncomfortable with Wade’s science or his conclusions? It’s unclear. Neither Wade nor his former employer returned requests for comment.
Wade’s last Times article appeared April 24. His Penguin Press book “A Troublesome Inheritance: Genes, Race and Human History” arrived in bookstores on Tuesday, May 6. In excerpts from his book posted by Time.com on Friday, he is identified as a “former science editor” of the Times. Until then, coverage of his book called him a current Times journalist.
Wade’s main thesis is that “human evolution has been recent, copious and regional.” He writes, “Though there is still a large random element, the broad general theme of human history is that each race has developed the institutions appropriate to secure survival in its particular environment.”
Blogs that focus on genetics — in particular those which see racialism as a given of life — have been anticipating the book’s publication since review copies were distributed in mid-winter. Some wondered if it would prove a cultural bombshell — “The Bell Curve” on steroids. That 1994 book argued that racial differences were key to understanding intelligence.
Yet to date, Wade’s book has drawn relatively little attention from the mainstream media and prominent pundits.
