Heritage Foundation Analyst Says Hispanics Have A Lower IQ

Via BuzzFeed reports:

Heritage Foundation communications VP Mike Gonzalez defended the foundation’s controversial scholar Jason Richwine on a bilingual Hispanic radio show Thursday, while continuing to try and keep distance between Richwine’s dissertation and the study on immigration Richwine helped author for Heritage.

Univision America radio’s Fernando Espuelas grilled Gonzalez over Richwine’s 2009 claims that Hispanics are genetically predisposed to lower IQs than whites and calls for a structure in which IQ is taken into account when granting visas.

Gonzalez yet again said the views do not reflect those of Heritage, in keeping with the foundation’s policy since the Richwine revelations first emerged. Gonzalez downplayed Richwine’s role in the foundation’s immigration research, saying he just did “the number crunching” on Heritage’s immigration study.

But Gonzalez also stood up for Richwine, declining to comment on whether Heritage will fire him and suggesting the controversial quotes from Richwine’s recent past have been taken out of context.

“Are you going to fire him or are you standing by him?” Espuelas asked.

“We really — you know, I don’t want to comment on that,” Gonzalez responded.

Ummm….
