    What I like to point out first is that 2 of the 6 are "White" countries and one of the white countries has a large black minority. This kind of defeats Tank and Willian Joyce's theory of the racial inferiority of Blacks and Browns. Blacks and Browns shouldn't be given a free pass. They need to stop blaming the white man for their ills and stand on their own two feet. But I digress.

    Here are the corners of the world that are thriving while the world is in shambles!
    (1) Canada - We could learn a lot from our neighbors in the North, although I think their VAST amount of oil reserves and exports of it contribute alot to their success. Not to mention they don't spend (or need to spend) a lot in defense because of their big brother to the South!
    (2) Austriallia - Has a large black population, but they always seem to do well.
    (3) Colombia - The most capitalistic country in all of Latin America! Surprising not part of CAFTA (so no Free Trade with America). Nevertheless, unlike Hugo Fat Ass with his black crack, Colombia has done well because of its capitalism policies!
    (4) Singapore - A western styled industrialize Asian country. No one is shocked or should be.
    (5) Peru - Another very capitalistic Latin American country. They are another antiHugo Fatass country, meaning they true to the proven capitalism and not to the failure of socialism!
    (6) Uganda - I was shocked, but reading about them, they seem to be doing well ever seen they kicked out their Muslim Tyranical Leader!

    The acquired inferiority caused by childhood parasites is ending mainly because of better sewer systems and such. However bodily resources used to fight disease are resources not available to the brain so the old model of racial inferiority did make sense as recently as the 80s. In the US the FDA's war against vitamins particularly vitamin D for those of dark complexion is still a major stumbling block on the way to racial equality.

    not to mention malnutrition. And several other contributing factors. Like lifestyle, diet and environment.

    That said there are still profound differences in IQ between various breeds of humans. Culture and multi generational immersion in the media that IQ measures being another determinant. But we can't rule in or out the possibility that breed itself makes some dogs shorter and longer or smarter or less smart. Some can jump higher and are more agile. Others have longer, sometimes curlier hair.

    Humans are just another species of dog.

    1,2 and 4 have the advantage of being developed nations with a handful of citizens. dump 300M on any of those and uganda will seem like a honeymoon destination.

    Strangely blacks reared by whites are slightly but definitely smarter than whites reared by whites. No one has published on whites or East Asians reared by blacks, blacks reared by East Asians or East Asians reared by whites. My suspicion is that while sample size is adequate the results are not PC by a long shot.

    I think that is a baseless conspiracy theory. The Asia sewer system was not up to par with the West system, nevertheless in academia they have done alright (esp in the West)!

    True, but the again there are large countries with relatively small populations for the country that constantly struggle like Libya, Afghanistan, Sudan, Algeria, Argentina etc.

    It takes more than just having a larger country and manageable population. HOWEVER, to have a super power or top GDP you need a large country and population!

    Not saying your wrong, but do you have a link to a study!

    The simpleton says that Blacks are intellectual inferior. They say we are species of apes. Gorilla are stronger then Chimpanzees. However, Chimps are much smarter!

    However, people not looking for the quick answer (such as me) see the short comings of the Brown and Black community and country are not because of racial inferiority, but rather the culture they have brought up on. The Jewish family for example praise academia over everything. The Irish family values being useful with your hands. Black and Latino families in general don't praise academia like they should. It has nothing to do with their racial make up it has to do with their culture. All they have to blame is themselves!

    more than size, it is about development. after that's established, population starts to become a liability to the economy, particularly in a downturn when the disused, displaced unemployed heap up en masse.

    the skinnier a country is on this sort of drag, i say the easier it is to make out clean when the shit hits the fan.
