Wrong. You need to understand inherent bias before you can understand why you have no idea what you're talking about.

You find very smart and not so smart people in every racial group. I have always questioned the validity of so called IQ tests, they are rather subjective, and people with different cultural backgrounds might score totally different on the same test. With regards to black people being less intelligent that's just nonsense. There are plenty of highly intelligent black people. I work with a guy in his late twenties who is brilliant. You cannot generalize about intelligence. I think all this intelligence testing was an offshoot of social Darwinism and eugenics, maybe the testing was not out to quantify intelligence, but to prove superiority of some groups over others. This of course goes right along that vein.
