Noticing is the gateway drug that leads to judging.

One day we’re celebrating diversity and the next day we’re stoning a heretic for noting that people are different.

The reason is there’s no getting around the fact that humans are just as susceptible to evolutionary pressure as every other creature. Human evolution was copious, recent and local, which means people in different places have different physical and cognitive traits. It’s hard to know where they go from here.

In Europe, even the most unhinged nutters in the ruling class have stopped celebrating diversity. In the US, a few crackpots like that dunce Elizabeth Warren will babble in public about the glories of diversity. All the signs point to them dropping this as their signature issue. At the same time, the new catchphrase “scientific racism” to describe the human sciences is ominous. It’s not hard to imagine mobs of Birkenstock-clad lunatics smashing up biology labs. - - The End of Diversity

eg, just try to fine a copy of "The Bell Curve" in your local library.
