J. Philippe Rushton, R.I.P.
I have known Phil Rushton for over a quarter of a century. Our Alternative
Forum twice sponsored talks by this great pioneer in the study of racial
differences, especially differences in behaviour. Citizens for Foreign Aid
Reform brought out a short popularized booklet on his thoughts -- *What
Rushton Really Said on Race, Evolution and AIDS* (C-FAR BOOKS, .O. Box 332,
Rexdale, ON., M9W 5L3, CANADA. $4.00)
Racial differences, Professor Rushton argued, were more than superficial,
more than skin deep. They were, in fact, behavioural. At one end were
Blacks with the behavioural or survival strategies of a fish -- many
births, promiscuous life style, casual child rearing methods ("it takes a
village). At the other end, were Orientals and close to them Whites, with
the survival strategy of the whale -- fewer children, involved and
nurturing child rearing. The races also different significantly in terms of
propensity toward violence, forward planning and impulsive behaviour. In
partnership with Professor Richard Lynn of the University of Northern
Ireland, he undertook a comprehensive review of I.Q studies and racial and
world I.Q. distributions. The literature in over a hundred studies going
back a century seemed to suggest that the average African IQ was 70! The
I.Q. of Norther American Negroes is about 85; the I.Q. of North American
Whites is roughly 100. If accurate, this would suggest that the average
African was borderline retarded. Professor Rushton went himself to South
Africa in the late 1990s to explore this data. It was accurate but he
explained that 70 I.Q. is not so much borderline retarded but is more the
emotional equivalent of a not very bright 12-year old, who would have basic
food gathering and other survival skills but would have poor control of his
emotional impulses and would be poor at planning for the future.
Needless to say, the policy implications of these findings were
revolutionary. They had strong implications on immigration policy. Is it
wise to import people from alien cultures with irresponsible breeding and
child rearing behaviours. [One thinks of the now intractable gang problems
in the heavily Caribbean public housing projects of Toronto.] Rushton
pointed out to me that the I.Q. map of the Middle East -- a swath running
across North Africa all the way to Northern India -- shows an average I.Q.,
with a few exceptions, less than 90. He felt that President George Bush's
ideal of exporting democracy to Iraq and Afghanistan and other such lands
was doomed to failure. Participatory self-government requires a fairly high
level of intelligence. It just isn't there. Democracy, he felt, would just
not work there.
Professor Rushton's views inflamed the egalitarians and the politically
correct, At one point in 1989, then Liberal Premier of Ontario David
Peterson ordered an investigation as to whether Professor Rushton's views
violated Canada's notorious "hate law." In the end, no charges were laid,
but the very fact of the investigation tarnished Professor Rushton's public
image and made him a pariah. There were several anti-Rushton protests led
by far leftists at his home campus the University of Western Ontario. He
took a sabbatical. In the end, Professor Rushton remained in the faculty
but foundation grants allowed him to buy out his teaching duties -- a
typical Canadian compromise: Professor Rushton wasn't in the classroom but
he did remain on the faculty,
He continued his research and a an outpouring of publications. More than a
decade ago, he told me: "We've won the scientific argument. Racial
differences, including behaviour differences, are incontrovertible. The
egalitarians have lost. However, it may take us several more decades before
these ideas get popularized and out there among the general population"
and, he might have added, among decision makers who remain thralls to
egalitarianism and political correctness. The flat earthers still rule the
policy world in North America and Europe.
We have lost a good friend and a brave and tenacious scholar.

Phil Rushton Has Died

Jared Taylor, *American Renaissance*, October 4, 2012

Before I ever met John Philippe Rushton I saw him on the *Geraldo
Rivera *television
program. It was in 1989, shortly after his ground-breaking work on race
differences first began to get international attention. One of the guests
was that weasel Barry Mehler of Ferris State University, who has tried to
make a career of denouncing scientists if he doesn’t like their research.

Prof. Mehler could hardly control himself. “I am trained in unmasking
academic racism,” he shouted, “and you are a racist!” Phil smiled and
replied quietly, “I *am *an academic.”

Another guest was a black man named Charles King, whose understanding of
science was even spottier than Prof. Mehler’s. “Are you saying I am your
inferior?” he thundered. “No,” replied Phil, “I am saying we are
different.” The program was a *tour de force* of reasonable explanations
and unflappable manners on the one hand, and fulmination on the other.

I met Phil not long after that impressive performance, and through many
years of friendship until his death two days ago, the qualities I saw on
that program always impressed me. Phil had an intense desire to know the
truth, to understand our species in all its complexity. He was also polite
to a fault, even in the face of the vilest provocation. But it is as a man
of science that he will be remembered—a great thinker in the distinguished
lineage of Francis Galton, Charles Spearman, and Arthur Jensen. In a sane
world, Canada would recognize him as the national treasure he was.

John Philippe Rushton was born in 1943 in Bournemouth, England, and
received a Ph.D. in 1973 from the London School of Economics for work in
the development of altruism in children. In 1974 he emigrated to Canada,
and in 1977 he took a post at the University of Western Ontario, where he
became a full professor in 1985.

Phil’s first important scientific contributions grew out of his studies of
altruism in children. During a sabbatical year he spent in Berkeley,
California, in 1981, he could not help noticing that in a multi-racial
society, people care most about their own group. Hispanics supported
recognition of Spanish as an official language, Jews were interested in
what was happening in Israel, and blacks associated with and supported each
other. This led Phil to develop Genetic Similarity Theory, according to
which people are most altruistic towards those to whom they are
biologically close, and less altruistic and even hostile to those who are
biologically distant. He studied how people sense genetic similarity, and
the consequences this has for society.

During this period he began to investigate race differences—in particular
race differences in intelligence and brain size—but broadened his research
to include all physiological and behavioral race differences. This led to
his ground-breaking application of *r-K* theory to human races—and, of
course, to his demonization.

Phil’s crucial insight was to realize that different races show consistent
patterns that reflect different reproductive strategies. At one extreme are
East Asians, who are the most intelligent, have the largest brains, show
the most sexual restraint, develop most slowly, live the longest, and are
most law-abiding. This is consistent with having few children but taking
very good care of them. At the other extreme are black Africans, whose
behavior is consistent with less investment in larger numbers of children.
On virtually every scale of *r-K *behavior (that is, on a scale of
high-investment versus low-investment child-rearing), whites fall somewhere
between Asians and blacks. Phil meticulously documented and argued this
theory in his brilliant 1995 book, *Race, Evolution, and

Phil had been publishing his ideas well before this, however, and in 1989,
the *Toronto Star* started a campaign to have him fired from his job at the
University of Western Ontario. The paper accused him of “racism,” and noted
that “there are well established procedures for the dismissal of tenured
staff.” The rest of the media joined in a chorus howling for Phil’s scalp.
In February that year, Premier David Peterson of Ontario telephoned the
president of the University of Western Ontario demanding that Phil be fired.

Thugs disrupted Phil’s classes, and shouted abuse at him whenever he walked
by. Once he found “Racists pig live here” [sic] scrawled on the door of his
office. In March 1989, the Attorney General of Ontario began a police
investigation to see whether Phil had broken laws banning the promotion of
“hatred against any identifiable group.” A finding of guilt could have
meant up to two years in prison, but eight months later, the Attorney
General announced that Phil’s theories were “loony but not criminal.”

The University of Western Ontario could find no legal way to fire Phil, so
it barred him from the classroom and ordered him to record lectures on
video tape for students to watch in private. Phil managed to persuade a
faculty grievance committee that this was absurd. When he resumed classroom
teaching—amid much media whooping and student protest—thugs repeatedly
disrupted his courses and even assaulted him. Through it all, Phil never
lost his temper, never threw a punch—and, most importantly, never backed
down. Over the years, his enemies gradually retreated to a baffled state of
relative silence, while Phil continued to publish top-flight research on
race differences.

As Phil moved into forbidden territory, his funding disappeared, and he
asked the Pioneer Fund for help. Harry Weyher, who had been running the
fund since 1958, gave Phil the support that made his best work possible.
After a close and fruitful association with the fund, it was natural that
Phil himself should become president of the fund on Weyher’s death in 2002.
For 10 years, Phil continued Pioneer’s quiet but invaluable grants in
support of race-related research.

Phil also had a close association with American Renaissance. He spoke at no
fewer than six AR conferences <>,
and was invariably the main attraction. The first time he spoke, in 1996, a
fascinated audience kept him on his feet for more than an hour past the
scheduled end of his talk. Phil answered question after question with his
trademark combination of patience, erudition, and charm. Afterwards, he
told me his legs were aching, but that it was a pleasure to speak to such a
well-informed group.

Phil had agreed to speak at the conference we held in February this year,
but he withdrew, saying he feared his health would not allow him to travel.
I knew he had been in and out of the hospital with Addison’s disease, which
attacks the immune system, but I hardly expected him to leave us so soon.
Phil always had ideas for research; I grieve to think he will never be able
to do that work.

Whatever Phil’s enemies may say of him—and we know exactly what they will
say—those of us who had the great privilege of his friendship know that he
was first and always a seeker of the truth. It was the quality of the data
he cared about, not whether they fit his or anyone else’s theories.

And, of course, it was precisely because he pursued the truth that he was
hated. Those who have never been slandered in the press, never been
denounced by “scholars,” never assaulted by “anti-racists,” or never
shunned by colleagues do not know the courage it takes to endure it year
after year. Phil Rushton steered a straight course through the hurricane,
and he did it with unparalleled dignity. He was as principled as a man as
he was brilliant as a scientist, and our world is greatly diminished
without him.

zoologist David Suzuki on race and genetics.
