""I think what is safe to draw from this is that there is a definitive factor played by racial genetics in intellectual achievement, but we, as a society, are striving to offset that foundation by increasing educational and social opportunities to 'offset' the racial achievement gap," Kundu wrote in the e-mail, whose subject line was "race and achievement (please circulate)."
Ortiz-Self asserted that Rushton's study was "not only discriminatory but resembles white supremacist ideology that takes us back to the time of segregation." Speaking on behalf of the NAACP, Greene deemed Kundu's remarks "offensive, not in accord with the mainstream of modern U.S. society, and certainly not in the equitable interest of all Marysville School District students." Greene went on to declare that Rushton "is a known white supremacist and that his pseudo-scientific theory has been effectively and consistently debunked by well regarded scientists.""
