An earlier post by Angulus Calx got me thinking about the medical profession. You will recall that UCT implemented racist selection criteria, where blacks only require a 74% average at matric level, to gain entrance to the UCT medical school. This, as opposed to coloureds at 78%, Asians at 88% and whites at 91%.
Apparently this is their effort at redressing past oppression, which of course it isn't. This has got to do with appeasement. The brightest minds know that intelligence has got very little to do with your environment, or for that matter, oppression. Intelligence is heritable; it is in your genes. So by lowering the admission requirements, you simply increase the levels of mediocrity and incompetence. Of course this is tautological, as we already know this.
To briefly cover some old terrain; using the IQ spread amongst the different population groups, as well as the Department of Education's numbers, we were able to determine what IQ level would be required by the different race groups, and the numbers that UCT could choose from.
Whites require an IQ of 138, and there would be approximately 188 candidates to choose from.
Coloureds and blacks require an IQ of 125, and there would be approximately 62 coloureds to choose from, BUT no blacks.
What? No Blacks?
Yes, and that means that UCT is probably lowering the standards even further, as are all the other medical schools, thereby introducing Doctor Death via incompetence.
Is my research wayward? Hardly. Let's have a look at a similar exercise that was conducted in the USA.
If admission to medical school was determined strictly by the scores achieved on the MCAT only 7 blacks in the entire USA would probably be admitted to the top 10 schools. Yet the odds favouring black student applicants over whites is a massive 21:1.
To put it more simply; physicians are chosen from the pool that has an IQ of at least 114, at least in theory. This equates to 4.8 black physicians to 100 white physicians. Yet as far back as 1970 the ratio was already 23:100. In 1980 the ratio was 30:100. Which means that 84% of the black physicians have an IQ less than 114 and are probably incompetent. Oh, and by the way, blacks only constitute 12% of the population.
What has this meant? Well white enrollments have dropped 27% (up to 2005) and black enrollments have increased 23.8%.
Seems to be a universal truth; we will lower our standards and sacrifice our health in the name of egalitarianism. I guess Michael Jackson learnt the hard way.
As for South African shortages; I'm not surprised. As a white, if you need an IQ of 138 to gain admission to medical school, you would be snapped up, upon graduation, by any first world country. No wonder we don't see young physicians anymore.
But it is more than just IQ. I could tolerate a lower IQ if I was dealing with a doctor with other qualities such as empathy, altruism, tolerance, compassion and foresight.
These are highly developed qualities, that are strongly correlated with intelligence. Research is beginning to emerge that suggests that primitive cultures are lacking in these essential qualities; and you guessed it, they are inherited.
So in summary, stay away from black doctors (on average), and do not give in to state sponsored medical programmes.
