Edward Dutton’s pseudo-academia: racism & fake credentials

There’s a Youtube channel called “Prof. Edward Dutton: The Jolly Heretic”. If you look at the video titles you’ll find they’re fixated on IQ, fertility, genetics, and something he calls “spiteful mutants”. He cites numerous scholarly papers, including many of his own publications. However, he is a fraud. This video explains Dutton is not a professor, and he is attempting to defend racism with pseudo-academia.
