Why Andrew Sabinsky didn’t apologise for saying black Americans had lower IQ than white Americans

He is no longer an adviser to Prime Minister Boris Johnson of the United Kingdom. Andrew Sabinsky, the ‘super forecaster’ resigned his appointment in February because he didn’t want to be a ‘distraction to the government.’

He calls reactions to his ‘old stuff online,’ ‘media hysteria.’

Below are four reasons he refused to apologise for the comments, which he made in 2016:

  1. Apologising for any action is hardly considered if doing otherwise does not threaten one’s wellbeing or survival
  2. It is easier to rationalise positions than to simply say, I am sorry
  3. Even with available evidence that points to the contrary, some of us just prefer to maintain status quo because of a false sense of stability which it gives
  4. Placed side by side, it is easier to hurt than to heal
