[OP-ED]: By all means, take issue with ‘The Bell Curve.’ But read it first

 06/23/2017 - 08:47
t’s a shame that the controversy regarding “The Bell Curve” centered on the book’s delineation of the differences in measured intelligence between blacks and whites
English

When “The Bell Curve” by Charles A. Murray and Richard Herrnstein was published in 1994, I was a junior in college and didn’t know anything about the book except that it had my white literature professors in an uproar. A few of them inveighed against the book’s premise -- the very notion of intelligence as something people possess in varying degrees -- and then the whole controversy eventually died out.

[OP-ED]: America’s postindustrial blues

 06/22/2017 - 09:43
Says Richard Reeves of the Brookings Institution in his new book “Dream Hoarders.” We should not be surprised that 58 percent of whites and 67 percent of whites without a college degree voted for Trump.
English

Ever since Donald Trump’s election, a cottage industry of politicians, journalists, scholars and commentators has sought to understand what motivates Trump supporters. Theories have ranged from globalization to a rebellion against Washington elitism to racism. But the true cause may have been overlooked: the “postindustrial society.”

Spanish

Si usted siente que después de las elecciones pasadas son los pacientes los que dirigen el manicomio, créame, no es el único. El lunático número uno es, sin duda, el mismo presidente, quien la semana pasada en Miami demostró una vez más que su concepto (o su comprensión) de la realidad no pasa de los “reality shows”.

If you feel that after the last election the inmates are running the asylum, you are not alone. The main lunatic seems to be the president himself, who last week in Miami showed once again that his concept (or his grasp) of reality does not go beyond, well, very bad “reality shows.”
