Lynn's studies were cited in the 1994 book, The Bell Curve and came under criticism as part of the controversy surrounding that book. His most recent research, published 2002 in the journal Population and Environment, is titled Skin color and intelligence in African Americans. Lynn purports to prove that African-Americans with lighter-colored skin have higher intelligence than those with darker skin.
