    Finally, the media is starting to come around, admitting that racial genetic differences cause IQ differences between the races. The episode on the science channel last Wednesday, hosted by Morgan Freeman, admits that genes code for differences in the brain the lead to differences in how the brains of the races function.

    Is this a step toward recognizing that white Americans are not racist? And that blacks are just inherently less intelligent? Are we on the verge of ending affirmative action?

    Of all the truths out there we dare not speak, the fact of lower black IQ is the most unmentionable.

    But it's real.

    So much misinformation and lack of understanding, it's hard to know where to start......

    The 'rankings' are in terms of POPULATIONS, not individuals. And what do those rankings actually mean, anyway?

    Is everyone here willing to accept the results of IQ tests as perfectly accurate? Why? What is your understanding of the methodology?

    'Blacks on average score X points lower on IQ tests' - that is not the same thing as 'Blacks are not as smart as whites'. The second is one possible interpretation. There are others.

    Before anyone could decide which is the most reliable interpretation, they'd have to investigate several possible interpretations.

    And in any case, the 'average' by racial group is a construct, a synthesis - it exists only statistically.

    Oh, and then there's the matter that there are what, seven? different types of intelligence. So which ones are most important in which settings?

    The case for the genetic intellectual inferiority of the Afro species is unassailable, so it is vigorously suppressed by racists who want to condemn whites for the state of Afros.

    So, how big is this 'point spread' - and how statistically significant is it, in terms of standard deviations?

    There's a full standard deviation between white people and afros, in America.

    populations not individuals.....exactly! the problem is that the black population disparity of outcomes is held up as proof of white racism when in fact the disparities are easily explained and predicted by the lower average intelligence of the black population. let individuals achieve according to their abilities, regardless of race.

    are IQ tests perfect? not for individuals but very nearly so for large groups. the problem here is that people want to mix other traits in with intelligence, hence the 'seven types of intelligence'. 'g' is the basic brain horsepower, it influences all the decisions we make every day. life itself is an IQ test. greater intelligence is positively correlated to just about every social trait. some areas are not only correlated but have threshold levels of intelligence needed. an IQ80 individual of any race is not going to be able to learn calculus.

    one standard deviation is considered about right. it is actually closer to 1.1 STD, depending on how highly 'g' loaded the test is. kids are more variable and it seems like blacks 'top out' at an earlier age than whites. the B/W gap increases with age and the average black adult has the logical and moral reasoning of a white 13 year old.
