But all the speculations in this thread, over race and genetics, are not addressing the claims in the book. This is a separate discussion. You're all presuming the author was merely stating unpleasant truths. The only question relevant to this book is: was the author quote-mining to bolster a racist agenda, or not?

Radioshack is the place where grandma goes when her landline phone stops working.

There is not one single USB 3 device in Radio Shack: neither cables nor flash drives nor anything USB3.

The staff doesn't understand half of what they have in the back, where nerds go for an obscure item for a project.

They will try to sell you an extended warranty on a 5-dollar audio cable.

The coffin has a lot more nails, but I think four is enough to point out.

Whatever your opinion on that event, it would seem that the protests were therefore a success."

my fellow atheists, but this seems to be the case! I realize most of the comments aren't 100% serious, poking fun at the Bible belt. But Google Fiber can't even launch in many secular places like San Francisco, for the same reasons we see a move to stop Google Fiber from expanding there. This is all about the telecom/broadband providers trying to stifle a radically cheaper product than what the competition offers or wants to offer. And Google totally kills their bundle model with this offering.
