Victim of Liberalism

The American Psychological Association bends
ever farther toward trendy Political Correctness. It planned to
give a lifetime achievement award to a prominent psychologist
who has specialized in intelligence measurement -- but postponed
it after some shrill ultra-liberals labeled Dr. Raymond B. Cattell
The New York Times notes the 92-year-old researcher
``has created many of the standard tests of personality and intelligence
in use today, and is the author of more than 40 books and 450
research articles.'' The critics, though, say some Cattell studies
are used to support white supremacist views. Well, any group can
cite bits and pieces of any data to support its view. A disappointed
Cattell flatly says he doesn't support any racist ``eugenics philosophy.''
But the intolerant Left could care less.
