Why is it so hard for people to admit that blacks are just less intelligent?
They'll make any excuse to keep from budging an inch. It's like arguing with a religious zealot
IQ by race (note blacks are the lowest)
this is you
and white people in general
Racism = weakness.
If I put you in the water, you die.
Therefore you are dumber than pic related.
I would love to see one single ounce of proof that any one race is smarter than another.
We are all of one race anyways, the human race, and to really believe that colour make a difference in intelligence would to me seem stupid in itself.
they can't fucking go around to every single African man, woman, and child and give them an IQ test.
If all Africans are mentally retarded, how have their people survived for so long?
As for >>612750366, yes the current narrative (and it's just that, a narrative) in social sciences is that "we're all one race". But remember, to be a different species, chimpanzees have only about 1-2% of their DNA different. So, since "race" is literally undefined in biology and does not in any sense correlate with "subspecies", those so-called "tiny" differences between the races are pretty massive when you get right down to it.
I didn't say only blacks, i asked if there were any black countries/communities that WEREN'T shitholes. Show me a witty list of successful black countries/cities like I'm about to do for everyone except blacks
>any Scandanavian country
go ahead, smart ass, I'm waiting.
The libtard in the first two minutes makes that exact fallacious argument.
They only live as long as they do because of outside support. Most of them don't even have running water
Gee, anon; I don't see that graph anywhere on the Wikipedia page you provided. Of course not all browsers are created equally.
let's not make the fallacy of overstating our case here; I firmly assert from the evidence that blacks are less intelligent on average than other races, but they're still human and still able to survive and even thrive in the right environment(s).
Of course they're less intelligent - if you're talking about shitty USA black culture or primitive stone age african cultures or backwards-ass islamic cultures.
Take an average black child and raise it in a successful white or asian family, and it will be just as smart on average as anyone else.
Genetics is a tiny component of intelligence. Culture (environment + training +expectations) swamp it totally.
I would mention that the bane of modern western societies is our inability to be cruel and frugal when it matters. Deficits caused by our inabilities to make meaningful cuts have crippled us over the past 40 years.
Not racist though, wandered in just now.
every test ever would disagree with you
Actually, there is some amount of evidence that black people have a particular mutation that governs the creation of muscle fiber, and tends to give black people a greater proportion of "fast twitch" muscle fiber compared to white people. This is a single gene mutation that can easily be shown to vary between races, why would you somehow assume there couldn't be something similar with brain development?
No, just copouts and denial
The idea that we evolved separately but equally for tens of thousands of years along with hybridization with Neanderthals in Europe who had larger brains is pure retardation
It depends on where they were raised
Inner city niggers can't read but I've seen niggers in a fluent neighborhoods as smart and some times smarter than white people in affluent neighborhoods, and Asians usually are smarter due to usually having a very strict lifestyle
Upbringing determines intelligence not race
did you just call that nigga a dirty tennis racket
this, I had a friend named nigga Jason, he was raised by a white lesbian couple. He was more of a beta nerd then I was, now he is living as a woman and in an engineer at Boeing pulling 100k a year. Funny thing, I am trans now too and I am a parts maker. Soon moving up there to hang out again for old times sake.
Skin color is just one of many differences between the races. No one says that it is what causes blacks to be less intelligent. The drastic differences in selection pressures and environments for tens of thousands of years is what has made the differences between the races.
>US was built by blacks
All those black architects and engineers did a hell of a job...or were you referring to the dumb physical labor of slaves? And even that, I guarantee there were more whites than blacks building ANY city in America.
Your list is shithole after shithole.
I got about one paragraph into this and find a major flaw in this author's thinking: race is about more than just skin color, and skin color is about more than just "protecting us from too much sunshine". But I wouldn't expect a liberal to understand actual science.
Because every school of science proves you retards wrong and intellect is keyed to upbringing and resource availability, not phenotype/"race".
Black anon here:
I'm not racist and hate racists; however I don't think that inner-city ghetto culture really promotes education and using your intelligence. Blacks in the hood are just as intelligent as white folks in the suburbs; they're just not encouraged by their culture to use that intellect. Growing up deep in the hood in Chicago's South Side, I can say that I was never encouraged to seek education and be smarter by my upbringing. I dropped out of school completely in 6th grade
Upbringing has everything to do with "smartness"
so repeatedly finding evidence of nigger scoring lower on academic and IQ based test holds no bearing? science is based in observation and no their skin color doesn't make them less intelligent it is the way their brain develops, but people with similar skin seems to all be yielding the same results
>Blacks in the hood are just as intelligent as white folks in the suburbs
This is what niggers actually believe
As long as you refuse to admonish hood niggers, you'll be just as bad as them
I'm white, and I have no problem admitting that blacks are, on average, more athletic than whites. I can admit that asians are, on average, smarter than whites.
It doesn't mean someone is more athletic or intelligent than me just because of race, it's simply a statistic. Why are people so insecure about this stuff?
This amuses me a bit.
There are undeniable differences in average IQ by race.
There is also a more subtle difference in male vs females (here not on the average but more on the standard deviation).
The IQ measure is not perfect and these are the results. I don't see why anyone should be offended by this.
The College Board is a mission-driven not-for-profit organization that connects students to college success and opportunity.
Founded in 1900, the College Board was created to expand access to higher education. Today, the membership association is made up of over 6,000 of the world’s leading educational institutions and is dedicated to promoting excellence and equity in education.
Each year, the College Board helps more than seven million students prepare for a successful transition to college through programs and services in college readiness and college success — including the SAT and the Advanced Placement Program. The organization also serves the education community through research and advocacy on behalf of students, educators and schools.
blacks brains are about 15% smaller. the occipital ridge in blacks has not flattened to accomodate brain development. the occipital ridge is smallest in whites and asians, who have the largest brains.
>running uncontrolled tests on racial intellect through standardized testing
I've seen this episode before!
RESOURCES, moron. You can't build the Parthenon with trees and mud.
On average, the wealthiest of blacks are outperformed by the poorest of whites on the SAT. This shows that the achievement gap is not caused by poverty. Blacks are innately less intelligent than whites.
These "statistics" are hilarious. Phrenology hasn't been a popular theory since like 1840's yet it's quoted here.
Also the herpes test as well, I don't understand how you would come up with those numbers.
Anyway I'm not swayed either way with this argument, but at least provide some facts instead of just spurting bullshit 24/7
>ethnicity being a substantial determinant factor on intelligence
>not accounting for the ethnic disparity and systematic marginalization of darker races in virtually all dimensions (educational, socioeconomic, media presence, etc.)
There is a difference in average IQ by race.
That is undeniable.
What is more debatable is whether or not there is causality between race and IQ. In fact most of the observed IQ differences can be explained by the socioeconomic status. But then again, one can ask ... but what if a higher IQ brings you more wealth ? You would not want to use socioeconomics to explain that gap .,. circular reference ... it seems we don't have a very reliable conclusion for now...
Dumb nigger doesn't know that Africa has the most bountiful land in resources compared to the entire world..
Sorry dumb niggers are just dumb niggers they choose mud and sticks cause they haven't evolved to stone yet..
There isn't anything about phrenology on that infograph. There is a proven correlation between skull size and intelligence and that the average skull shape and size is significantly different between races
The fact that the wealthiest of blacks have a lower average SAT score than the poorest of whites shows that socioeconomic status is not the reason for the achievement gap between races.
>implying that penis size triumphs intelligence
There is no fucking WAY that's a "fact," unless you're comparing white social workers (lowest wage, highest education) to black boxers (highest wage, no education, constantly punched in the face).
What OP seems to be implying is that white people are "smart" and black people are "dumb". Which is patently false because I have a secret for you guys.
MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD ARE DUMB.
I'm black and never really bothered by this racist argument people make because I know it's ridiculous. The simple fact if the matter is you guys are basing your intelligence off the work of others. Majority of the shit that surround you now are not only built by other races, but not built by YOU. Cell phones, fridges, plumbing, shit you take for granted you know. If all the engineers, scientist, healthcare professionals, etc etc and were all killed off somehow, and there creations turned to dust.... I doubt that a quarter of us would survive, or at the very least everywhere would look like how Baltimore is right now(only niggers throw riots right?).
TL;DR : everybody is stupid, not just black people
It's never really been disproven either. There's more evidence pointing to it than away from it.
A dog and a wolf are the same species too, but there's only one you'd want in your community.
There are a number of reasons that are being advanced to explain the continuing and growing black-white SAT scoring gap. Sharp differences in family incomes are a major factor. Always there has been a direct correlation between family income and SAT scores. For both blacks and whites, as income goes up, so do test scores. In 2005, 28 percent of all black SAT test takers were from families with annual incomes below $20,000. Only 5 percent of white test takers were from families with incomes below $20,000. At the other extreme, 7 percent of all black test takers were from families with incomes of more than $100,000. The comparable figure for white test takers is 27 percent.
But there is a major flaw in the thesis that income differences explain the racial gap. Consider these three observable facts from The College Board's 2005 data on the SAT:
• Whites from families with incomes of less than $10,000 had a mean SAT score of 993. This is 129 points higher than the national mean for all blacks.
• Whites from families with incomes below $10,000 had a mean SAT test score that was 61 points higher than blacks whose families had incomes of between $80,000 and $100,000.
• Blacks from families with incomes of more than $100,000 had a mean SAT score that was 85 points below the mean score for whites from all income levels, 139 points below the mean score of whites from families at the same income level, and 10 points below the average score of white students from families whose income was less than $10,000.
This is not what OP was implying. No one is claiming that every member of certain groups are a certain way. It's about AVERAGES. Men on AVERAGE are taller than women. This does not mean that all men are taller than all women. Whites are on AVERAGE more intelligent than blacks even when controlling for socioeconomic factors. This does not mean that all whites are smarter than all blacks.
This is a failed (or incomplete to the point of irrelevance) study.
did they factor lineage, as in HOW much black DNA vs other the students had?
What is the full sample size? Why?
Was there any form of formal or informal prep prior to taking the test?
Is the population "racially balanced" enough to actually indicate proper sampling?
Seriously. It's like they tried desperately to undertake this project as a legitimate experiment but simply didn't have the necessary scientific knowledge to do it in a way that would matter (though, truth be told, this subject is so complex and has so many factors that it's probably scientifically impossible to arrive at a consensus regarding its results anyway.)
Black people who are as intelligent as the most intelligent whites are an anomaly. There is a regression to the mean with IQ so the offspring of two intelligent black people is more likely to be closer to the average black person than their freakishly intelligent parents. There is also the fact that blacks are propped up and babied by affirmative action and they are held to lower standards than everyone else. That is why black people making 200k aren't necessarily earning by being smart. It is handed to them because they are the best we are going to get.
It's only when Marxist Jews infiltrated American scientific communities in the 50s and 60s that science turned away from any discussion about possible differences between races. Before that open discourse was actually possible.
It's a socioeconomic problem. Not a genetic problem.
Black people are more impoverished than white, and impoverished people have a statistically larger likelihood of receiving a lesser quality of an education than say...everyone else.
Dogs have been subjected to thousands of years of careful, intentional guided breeding. When you do those things to human it's called Eugenics, and it tends to be considered a crime against humanity.
White dude here. Last time I tested my IQ a year ago it was 147.
Extreme views in any sense are detrimental to a movement. You can not have people on two sides of a discussion with a black and white view (no pun intended) and expect results. I can see where blacks are coming from because much how religion indoctrinates kids into belief so does the ghetto with gangs. They get them involved young and many times don't leave them a choice. Good friend of mine back in Cali growing up was a blood. He was handed a gun at 8 years old by his brother who was 22 and said you are ganna post up or we'll beat you/kill you. Pretty crap decision for an 8 year old to make if you ask me but that 22 year old was told the same thing when he was 8 and so on.
They are raised into a black power environment that is teaching kids oppression is from the white man. They believe this because they are told that their whole lives by those already washed through the cycle. That is what it is....a cycle that must be broken. In this generation we will hopefully see a leader that teaches how to break that cycle. Their movement against police brutality is misguided and has no leader. All they have is mob mentality and when you exercise mob mentality with no leader that the people will listen to you will always end up destruction.
Now for the whites side in my next post.
In that case there's no way in hell, you can "control for all socioeconomic factors". To many variables. And I doubt anyone on this board is qualified to make such judgements...
>did they factor lineage, as in HOW much black DNA vs other the students had?
It would be a reasonable assumption that anyone who could qualify as black even if they are only 30% black and 70% white would classify themselves that way on a college application in order receive undeserved scholarships and grants. This would also give you a much better chance of being accepted with sub par scores. This only makes blacks look worse. Even with mixed race individuals in the black category the average SAT score is still pitiful.
White people in history aren't better then what you would call a savage. We are just more clever as to how we mask our violence. For instance I was raised in America. I understand I was brain washed as a child by saying the pledge everyday and general patriotism instilled in me. I know it's there and still can't help but get an america boner when we blow some shit up. It's because its deeply rooted in us. History belongs to the victor and we wrote history for the white man. We conquered in every sense that there was until we realized that force isn't viable. Psychological warfare is much more powerful then destroying cities. We can win hearts and minds with kind acts or like in our home front Propaganda.
White people through out history are greedy and violent but so are the Egyptians/war lords of Somalia/North Koreans/Russians....it doesn't matter. The fact of the matter is....ALL HUMANITY IS INHERENTLY GREEDY. We want more. We want what they have. We will get it. As society is evolving into the next stage right before our eyes we all ask ourselves Who is the enemy?
We create enemies as we create purpose to our lives. Saying "this person is responsible for my hardship" and not standing up to say "I will overcome this hardship in my life." The realization that there is only one enemy and it is the eye of the beholder. I would say our success is based on 5% circumstance, 5% coincidence, 90% self.
The fact is...all humanity has an evil history because if you aren't a greed driven person you are still subject to the greedy men of this world. Meaning there will never be peace on earth but you can chose to have peace.
because there's no evidence of that
just because black people have lower IQs doesn't mean it's because they're black
there's a thousand societal and frankly geographical reasons why black people would have lower IQs
there is no evidence that being black inherently inhibits your intelligence
There are smart black people. They are just very very rare. A lot of blacks who are considered "smart" are only as smart as a slightly above average white or asian person. Everyone has become used to having lower standards for blacks.
I don't have lower standards for black people. Frankly I've come to have lower standards for members of my own race... oppressors who spurn the oppressed.
You are so convinced and comfortable in your hatreds that you can't see how evil your thoughts are. You've poisoned your morality.
mm racism tastes like fried chicken and grape soda.
>Why is it so hard for people to admit that blacks are just less intelligent?
Because the implication is that it's because of their DNA, and not because of the fact that they're been fucked over in our society for centuries.
Contrary to the popular belief among dipshits, being poor and being raised in a shitty neighborhood as part of a long cultural legacy of marginalization does impact how you do on things like IQ tests, SATs, the job market, etc.
>I'm an evolutionists guys trust every word I say
Look, I'm no expert on the matter. But I try to be as intellectually honest as I can. I call it as I see it. I don't try to pass as far as I can tell, with the human race there are shifts between powers and what can be viewed as "intelligence" all the time. Just look at history Ottoman Empire, Egyptians, Persians, Brittians, Chinese etc etc... You wouldn't constantly claim that every time a nation of people rose to the top they were the most intelligent at the time because that wouldn't make sense because they would have stayed at the top. Shit changes man, end of story. I see no satisfactory evidence towards the contrary.
Most likely none. Sites like 23andme and Ancestry.com offer to test a persons dna for a fee and tell you what your genetic ancestry is. I've never had mine tested but the majority of white people who have used this service (95-98%) were found to have only European dna. This was different for African Americans and Hispanics obviously.
what you're doing now is the same shit people have been arguing as part of the scientific racism movement since the early 20th century.
modern day 'whites' only developed independent from blacks for a period of a few hundreds of thousands of years. that's a long time historically, but in terms of evolution it's jack shit. natural selection works very slowly, and you can't argue that IQ differences are the result of somehow drastic evolution in the geological equivalent of a split-second.
The DNA evidence required to suggest a direct, alternative evolutionary 'series' leading to modern black people does not exist. This is speculation on the behalf of 'expert opinion', which is a shitty quality of evidence.
Can you, or any "slightly above average white person" build an operable cell phone? And for an extra challenge try to do so without reading info on how the tech was conceived(by a black man). There are many other inventions as well.
And could you go into further detail as to why intelligent black people are a "biological anomaly" please?
The average intelligence of society is what determines what the quality of life for the average person will be. Having plenty of food, being able to call the police when blacks commit crimes, being able to go to a hospital when you are sick or when a black person assaults you, etc... The contributions of the most intelligent members of our race has led to these things being possible. The average intelligence of the majority of our members allows it to be maintained. A race with an average IQ too low would result in constant violence, poverty, starvation etc...
The vast majority of protestors there aren't being violent.
Furthermore, the number of violent protestors in Baltimore and Ferguson combined is far less than the amount of angry white people who have torn shit up because their favorite ball-game team lost an important game of ball. I guess that makes them white chimps and hypocrites too.
Not when there is a drastic change in selection pressures. That is what is important with evolution. Time is a factor, but the differences in selection pressures are the big deal (breeding animals).
>I've never had mine tested but the majority of white people who have used this service (95-98%) were found to have only European dna.
Please direct me to this source, since I'm interested in these 'European' base pairs and alleles that weren't covered in my biology class.
Oh wow, so you really don't have any idea what you are talking about do you? A DNA test can tell you exactly what parts of the world your ancestors cam from. Different races cluster genetically because we are genetically different.
>Time is a factor, but the differences in selection pressures are the big deal (breeding animals).
But remember, for selection pressures to select something, there has to be genetic variety. Meaningful genetic variety can only happen as a result of mutations dragged out over a long period of time. Over the last 100 years, we've seen a sizable part of the population of Sub-Saharan Africa be born with sickle-cell anemia because of the selective pressure of the malaria outbreak. This is a single allele that took centuries to 'spread' to the entire population.
Now think of how many thousands of genes need to be changed in order to drastically alter brain function. This requires shitloads of time.
>A DNA test can tell you exactly what parts of the world your ancestors cam from
I'm not arguing against that, but I want to see how these tests manage to tell exactly what percentage of that DNA came from ancient Europeans. What exactly are they comparing it to?
Intelligence is for a fair portion affected by DNA. A race is just a pool of genes developed in a certain part of the world. Some pools could have more developed intellect-developing genes than another, and almost certainly do, the idea that tens of thousands of years of genetic isolation wouldn't result in change in a such a diverse and large number of genes as the certainly vast number of them needed for mental development is something only a simpleton or a an overly sensitive , politically correct, and/or intellectually dishonest person would believe. I can't be arsed to find it but I saw a study comparing the problem solving ability of different raced infants. Turned out like you'd think it would.
I work in a genotyping lab. They map SNPS (single nucleotide polymorphisms). There are literally thousands of variations in the human genome. Some are characteristic of particular lineages of DNA.
By measuring hundreds of these in a particular genome you can deduce what the ancestry of that DNA is.
I literally analyze Cow, Pig, and Salmon DNA 40 hours a week to help professional animal breeders breed the best animals with the best traits. It's basically the cutting edge of agricultural technology and avoids genetically modifying animals. Instead of manually tampering with the DNA of animals we just help the breeders pick the perfect animals to breed naturally.
I can tell you exactly what breeds of cow were the parents of any beef sample you give me.
Lost my shit, but the analogy truly doesn't work. It falls apart when taking into consideration the following facts.
1. Humans are not dogs. There is a vast difference in the evolution of dogs and humans, and different things must be understood.
1a. Humans evolved primarily in Africa, with some populations leaving and two different populations evolving lighter skin like one might see in europeans/middle-easterners and east asians. Wolves evolved in
1b. Human races (genetically speaking) aren't clearly defined groups if you're observing from within the particular population. For instance, most white europeans might consider sub-saharan africans to be of a singular race. However, some groups of sub-saharan africans might consider other groups of sub-saharan africans of different races. Some insight is gained from this observation when it's compared to Rwanda and the stupid bullshit that happened there, with hutus and tutsis killing each other over perceived differences. Conversely, sub-saharan africans might consider Europeans of a singular race, which is frankly wrong from the point of view of Europeans, who consider eachother to be shitskin niggers all of the fucking time.
1c. Dogs on the other hand weren't normally under the pressure of natural selection for the vast majority of their time being domesticated. They had certain traits that were naturally selected for, but most of the others were clearly bred for, owing to the vast variety of dog breeds there are. Humans have historically been influenced by natural selection, and still are today. Eugenics tried, but it pegged lots of things to genetics that aren't influenced by genetics.
Lol ok goodnight man I have welding school tommorrow and I'm sleepy. But I just want to say, as a black man, I don't hate you but I can honestly say I used to be just like you in my feelings toward my people. This is purely anectodal but my trouble was not knowing black people and confirmation bias, and I believe you suffer from the same. I think you should get out of your bubble man it helped me out a lot. Good night man
>By measuring hundreds of these in a particular genome you can deduce what the ancestry of that DNA is.
So the current consensus based on DNA evidence is that modern day Europeans and Asians came out of Africa, but white people can only have European DNA? Shouldn't the tests show that white people have African DNA, considering that it's the source of all modern humans? How far back are they even looking when they say 'European', because it all goes back to Africa at some point, yes?
Not the guy you were talking to, but I figure they're looking for SPECIFIC patterns that appear very generally or very specifically in europeans, that don't appear in africans or asians.
A trait affected by genetics that has race based variation in the average. He isn't saying they are "the same" you absolute double nigger
>but I figure they're looking for SPECIFIC patterns that appear very generally or very specifically in europeans, that don't appear in africans or asians.
So they're concluding that most white people have mostly white ancestors? man, somebody get them a nobel prize.
