Because he hadn't been caught at it because that's what the peers want to believe. You always need to be skeptical of research that says someone is smarter than someone else based on ideology, because it is the same kind of research the Nazis did.

It had to do with another one group is smarter than another group study. So the data's merit is seriously lacking.

Considering it was the same type of study, I think you know perfectly well that it is relevent.

There is also something known as research integrity and the first source I looked up the background on, has little to no integrity.
