Since the college-age population is only 1.8 percent Jewish, that’s an extraordinary over-representation. Given the “tail effect” you get in statistical distributions with different means, though, it perhaps reflects the reality of higher mean Ashkenazi intelligence.
Most of which were taken in the last few years, but a few like the above, back to 1984.Also, the high IQ of Ashkenazi Jews is more verbal than visuo-spatial, leading to that dominance in the shaping of opinion.Asian Americans, by contrast, are much more visible as a group.For most Americans, what the media does not report simply does not exist, and there is virtually no major media coverage of what appear to be de facto Asian quotas at our top academic institutions. Yes, they’re being held down: on a strictly meritocratic basis their numbers would be much higher yet, because of the arithmetic of those distribution tails.Still, strictly measured by demographic proportionality, they’re high. Jews are white, which makes things easier to fudge.
