>>65698735>So how is that "racist"?
It's people misinterpreting a complicated situation to fit their simplistic agendas.
There are genetic components to intelligence - (almost) no one denies that.
But at best genes only give someone potential to be 'smart' - after that you need an education.
IQ is not a perfect measure of intelligence - modern theories on intelligence break it down into subgroups (so you can be good at logical reasoning, but crap at visual/spacial awareness). However, IQ can be easily tested, so it gets used a lot as an indicator of intelligence.
Black IQ Vs White IQ scores (In America) - not just IQ, but for academic achievement across the board blacks tend to trail behind whites.
The question is: why?
The answer: Lots of of reasons - could be shittier schools, could be that education is not embraced by black society ("You study? you so white, man"), worse nutrition etc.
And yes, it's possible that genetics may have a role to play - that on average, blacks have fewer 'smart genes' than whites. But given that it's bundled in with a bunch of other factors - some of nearly impossible to filter out - it's incredibly hard to say how much of an impact race has on intelligence.
The way we measure it isn't perfect (IQ, academic scores).
Races are not completely separate (a lot of black americans have 1 or more white ancestors).
Social attitudes towards education do impact academic performance but the impact varies by area/economic group.
But what people grab hold of is:
"Haha blacks r dumb."
"IQ tests is racist!"
Complex situation, simplistic understanding.
