Scanning Brains for Insights on Racial Perception (and my comments)

IQs in various countries by Rodrigo de la Jara, who wished to add the following note:
“Rodrigo de la Jara believes in human genetic improvement via genetic engineering but considers traditional eugenics to be an impractical, inefficient, simpleminded, and unjustifiably cruel way to achieve improvements in humanity.” This is an important reminder that the authors of the articles hosted or linked to on The Evolutionary Perspective web site do not necessarily agree with other views expressed here(such as my pro-eugenics views).
As for the statement itself, I would add that Genetic Engineering has a much more dangerous potential than eugenics, due to the complex nature and the delicate equilibrium of human genetics. As for his implicit claim that there may be other, more efficient and practical ways of improving humanity, I hope he is not referring to social/environmental intervention. But if he is, why is he even talking about “inefficiency”, “simplemindedness” and “impracticality” when referring to eugenics ?
