Quite a poser indeed.
Who says they are?
All of my black friends (light skinned of course) say so.
there has been quite a dicussion in the education forum about black parents from Detroit who are mad that their children have scored so poorly on the NAEP test. the results indicate that the average IQ for a black student there is roughly 78. I don't know the skin colour of negroes there but I do know that Detroit is majority black and run by black politicians, black school boards, etc.
Its completly cutural. if you are lighter skined you are more likly to have a white parent or granparent, resulting in a greater undersytanding of the school system from the parents. plus the negative effects black culture would have on a young person in education.
so you agree that lighter skinned blacks are smarter? you just think that black culture is the cause rather than genetics or a combination of the two?
Considering all our ancestors came from Africa we need to lighten things up a bit. Now do this, consider the even lighter blacks, the whites, now check out these stats, it may be we are just looking in the wrong place. Could it be Americans are just less smart or is that more dumb or is that less educated or is that less read or is that less inquisitive or is that TV brain dead or is that reality show stupid.....
A few items from a recent article in Harper's Magazine (See excerpt below). One out of every four Americans believe they have been reincarnated, 44% percent believe in ghosts, 71% believe in angels, 40% believe Gawd created all things in their present form in the last 10,000 years. Twenty percent think the sun may revolve around the earth. The list goes on and on and on.....
'Notebook, A Quibble,' By Mark Slouka
"Quite possibly, this belief in our own opinion, regardless of the facts, may be what separates us from the nations of the world, what makes us unique in God’s eyes. The average German or Czech, though possibly no less ignorant than his American counterpart, will probably consider the possibility that someone who has spent his life studying something may have an opinion worth considering. Not the American. Although perfectly willing to recognize expertise in basketball, for example, or refrigerator repair, when it comes to the realm of ideas, all folks (and their opinions) are suddenly equal. Thus evolution is a damned lie, global warming a liberal hoax, and Republicans care about people like you."

Intelligence is inversely proportional to the amount of melanin one has.
This guy is the smartest person in the world:
They aren't. OJ got away with murder. Light skin Tiger got busted just for cheating.
how do light skinned blacks answer those questions compared to dark skinned blacks? hahaha, calling all americans stupid doesn't really answer the OP
