Gee, I had to really study this thread to see how it got from the question to rap...!

Eugenics isn't wrong because of the goal. It's stupid because it makes the assumption that we know enough to figure out what is and is not adaptive. It assumes we know what is best and runs the huge risk of narrowing out genetic variability and losing more than we gain.
Well said. So I won't say it again.

I've read that for African American women, the IQ/family size negative correlation is just about perfect. Find a black woman with an IQ of 150, and she just won't have kids. The correlation is strong but less perfect for other ethnic groups.

Oh, and btw, thanks for that whole vote thing. Work, I don't do.

I don't know what he's up to now, but just last year he was the first rap artist inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Isn't it about time they renamed it to something more appropriate, like the Music Hall of Fame?

Right on all counts. Nothing But Trouble was a stinkbomb with Chase, Aykroyd, Moore, and John Candy. Aykroyd won a Razzie for his performance, and it was also the film debut of future dead rapper Tupac Shakur.
It was so bad, it was funny.

And, the penis nose on Dan Aykroyd was bizarre, but unforgettable.

Yeah, really. Madonna's getting in now.
