Depends on who is being tested and the validity of the tests.
Certainly if you test an African farmer in the Congo and a Norwegian egineer, it's obvious who will score higher.
These white supremacists, which you so vehemently deny being yet say the contrary, rely on Superficial European (Biased) tests.
Honestly, not to many Africans will know who Plato was. I doubt you will know a lot about African or Meso-American culture if tested.

The 'lower IQ' thing is technically true, in some cases, because the tests are culturally biased, making it harder to score high. Plus, there are math portions that you might not do as well on if you've been given substandard education.
"Lower intelligence"--not true. Get an IQ test without cultural bias, get a tester of the same race and gender as your subjects, and get people who've had a good education. You won't find any significant racial differences.
But if you're a racist, you don't think that hard, apparently. You just see that there's a whatever-point gap on the latest poorly-thought-out test and figure that means intelligence.
Am I thinking too hard about this?... Yeah, probably. Darn that statistics class.

IQ means fuck all.
9/17/2008 9:17:05 AM
IQ is irrelevant.
9/17/2008 9:42:23 AM
Yeah? Well I have a much higher IQ than you. I hope that doesn't offend you.
I should probably point out that my comment is directed at the Half Sigma fucktard, not the two commentors above me.

"I am absolutely not a white supremecist"
Is a sure sign that the person you're talking to is an insane white supremacist.
"blacks have lower IQ than whites."
Statistically, whites may have on average a higher IQ than African-Americans. However, it's not necessarily genetic, most people believe it's linked to income level as middle- and upper-class people have the means to become more educated, and there are more rich white people or more poor black people or something.
I don't think it's really genetic though, intelligence is largely not related to genes.
Also, IQ is just a number, it's hard to test and doesn't have much meaning other than how well you can complete an IQ test.

@ Adam: Good point, I wasn't thinking about the cultural bias too. People who haven't lived in the US their whole lives are unlikely to know anything about life here, and IQ tests really depend on that sort of thing.

#726316: tests are culturally biased
How are they biased, and why won't anyone make a test that's not culturally biased ie. produces equal results on every population?
And why didn't those blasted Europeans make them biased agains Asians?
aaa: IQ is irrelevant.
Of course it is, after all there's absolutely no correlation between average IQ of a population and it's prosperity.
anonymous_troy: I don't think it's really genetic though, intelligence is largely not related to genes.
According to what/who?

"I'm not a white supremacst! I just say a lot of stuff that white supremacsts tend to get behind! I'm totally not a racist!"

@Bigot's narrowminded view.
Factor in standard of living.
Generally speaking, Mathematics is not important, to say a African nomads, but I'm sure they know about survival and hunting.
Again it's not genetic in the least bit.(Evironment/Social Interaction) I've said this to bigot before, GET SOME LOGIC. You clearly lack any form of logic or intelligence.

Adam: Generally speaking, Mathematics is not important, to say a African nomads, but I'm sure they know about survival and hunting.
But it's impossible for them to adapt into their environment through natural selection. What are you, a some kind of fundie?
You clearly lack any form of logic or intelligence.
9/19/2008 2:21:49 PM
Er, black people have "lower IQ" because they tend not to have the same access to schooling or money. Why? Because of people like YOU putting them down because of this. Self-perpetuating monster.
9/19/2008 3:05:52 PM
Yeah, I'm willing to bet that the "genetically based" differences are actually culturally based.
Or maybe it's because I've known too many wiggers . . .
9/20/2008 9:58:29 PM
Half Sigma, no study, research or scientists have said that. If genes have demonstrated anything at all is that Blacks, Asians and White are humans.
9/29/2008 7:56:30 AM
IQ only tests how many book facts you have learned. It is based on white subcultures, and is inherently racist. There are other, better intelligence tests, many of which test for such non-academic, unbiased types of intelligence as common sense, social adeptness, and pattern recognition. And guess what? Black people don't score dramatically lower on those tests than white people!

Hey kids! Here's a fun experiment you can do at home! First, kidnap a number of white people from their homes and take them far away to another country, namely one which is predominately black. Use them as slave labor, making sure to separate families and prevent them from getting any education all while doing your best to stop any previous cultural practices they might have. Don't forget to abuse them! Next, after a hundred or so years, take the whites you have and free them - but set up a number of discriminatory laws that have the effect of keeping them poor and prevent them from becoming active in politics. You might also want to create some groups with the stated goal of killing white people who are "uppity". After another hundred years of that (or so), remove those laws. Finally, after a decade or so, administer IQ tests created by privileged, college-educated blacks. If the whites still score higher on the IQ tests, you've proven that whites are superior! Have fun and always remember to ask for your parents permission before doing sociological experimentation!

"I'm not a racist, but..."

Today, class, we will be studying semantics, or, the meaning of words in correlation to their context.
A "supremacist" is someone who holds that a particular race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, belief system or culture is superior to others and entitles those who identify with it to dominate, control or rule those who do not.
By stating that blacks have lower IQ's then whites (a generalization that, like most if not all generalizations, is completely wrong), you are also saying that whites are better then blacks. You are saying they are supreme over blacks.
Hence, yes, you are a white supremacist.

If you really believe that, then you are a racist.
