Excerpts From Whitney’s Essay

April 19, 1999

Excerpts from the foreword written by Florida State University professor Glayde Whitney to the book ``My Awakening,″ by David Duke, former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard who is running for Congress:

___

``Duke has endured an intense and unrelenting smear campaign for decades. Once you read this book you will know why he has been attacked by those of immense power. He challenges all the sacred cows of modern life, and he does so with intelligence and emotion.″

___

``One of his honest truths is that from a thorough immersion in modern science he became convinced that racial egalitarianism is the scientific equivalent of the flat-Earth theory.″

___

``The technical questions had always been why _ what were the reasons for the large intellectual gap between blacks and whites? As the hard scientific data came in, it became more certain that genetic differences (heredity) played a large role in the discrepancy. But in public it became politically incorrect to even acknowledge that there was a difference.″

___

``Individuals of Jewish ancestry are vastly overrepresented in the ranks of highly successful scientist. They are among my best students and closest friends. Organized Jewry, on the other hand, dogmatically attempts to keep the general population from awareness of the findings of modern science.″
