Just wondering if anyone has any insight into why (sociologically speaking) this particular urban myth has such enduring power. I don't mean just here at LPSG, although that remains a mystery to me, but generally why so many people so thoroughly believe there are substantial size differences between races, against all evidence. From my optimistic side: This thread is NOT about size difference. Post that elsewhere, and only after you have read this. This thread is for those who want to talk about those other threads at the next higher level of abstraction. PS: As a side venture, I'm willing to entertain bets about how long it will take for someone to post an "It's all true!" response.
