Here's Video Of Another Time The Heritage Analyst Said Blacks and Hispanics Have Lower IQs

Jason Richwine, a senior policy analyst at the conservative think tank The Heritage Foundation and co-author of a controversial report on the economic costs of immigration reform, said at a 2008 event that the "most important way" race was different was in IQ. He made similar comments in a 2009 PhD dissertation, which have received attention this week.

At an event hosted by the American Enterprise Institute in 2008, Richwine said Jews had the highest average IQs and singled out blacks and Hispanics as having the lowest IQs.

He said IQ differences "were not going to go away tomorrow" and "we have to address them in our immigration discussions and our debates."

The Washington Post first reported on Richwine's 2009 PhD dissertation, which argued the same position.

Here's the video of him speaking at the event in 2008.
