    Why is Africa so poor? Does the Bell curve explain it??? There's twice as many people in Africa making a combined 2 trillion dollars of GDP(PPP).

    Africa isnt real. It's just words. Why are the majority of people who live in that geographic region poor? I dunno. Probably because they lack liberty as is usually the case.

    I don't think the cause of African poverty is endemic to Africa. To assert why would elicit howls of righteous indignation from the politically-correct police.

    Perhaps there should be a movement by Afro-Americans and Afro-Europeans to return to their homeland and lend assistance to establish a better life for all their people..

    cops, teachers, bank tellers and members of the military tend to have average (or slightly above) intelligence for their populations. can you imagine having to deal with the logical deficit of an IQ 75 cop or bank teller in Africa?

    the reason Africa is so poor is because they lack the human capital to fill everyday jobs with competent people.

    Wealth is people with technical skills - engineers, doctors, auto technicians, farmers, computer scientists etc. This requires brains that blacks don't have. Blacks are purely verbal people - they can talk but they can't make things or grow things or fix things.

    Yes.

    The average IQ in sub-Sarahan Africa is "retarded." Seriously. At least by the white standard. It's probably a fine level of intelligence for surviving in an environment in which nobody has to plan ahead for winter.
