What was the name of the well-respected scientist who ruined his career by saying black people score lower on average on IQ tests than white
He wasn't judging black people (therefore, he was not racist), he was just making the observation that after 30 years of testing, the results showed
that that was the case.
Obviously the world recoiled in horror because he used the word "black" in a context that could be construed as negative, but what he said was a
The races are not all equal. This is a fact. Africans are more prone to heart conditions, chinese are lactose intolerant. Whites tend to have
higher instances of bowel cancer. These are facts. They are not judgements. Ergo, this is not a racist post.
So if I say "judging on the evidence, black people are less intellectually capable than white or asian people" I am being 100% correct, fair and
just, if that is what test results show.
We go into scientific testing on the assumption that everyone starts from an equal level in all respects. This is becoming more and more obviously
not the case.
Look at the olympic games. What percentage of sprinters are black? Far more than white, from what I see.
Is that a problem? Well, if the situation were reversed, I think it would be.
However, evolution has dictated that as a race, they will be naturally more athletic than us dumpy white people. Why? because there are a large
number now still living in tribal villages. An obviously obsurd thing for a westerner to think, but this means the outside pressures on their lives
from their environment has favoured tall, fit and healthy peoples. People with effective running physiques. This leads naturally on to heart
problems (my grandfather was a black man from St. Helena, and my father was an athletic man all his life, cycling 3+ miles to work each day. It has
given him an enlarged heart among other problems) later in life, and extra pressure on the cardiovascular system.
So why are white people more education-ready or capable than black people? Because we live in a society where physical fitness is not key to our
survival. This has lead to intellectual development, because of the race to have the highest technology that has plagued europe and asia for the last
few thousand years.
Physical fitness has taken a back seat to centuries of schooling, higher education and a thirst for mental prowess. This will naturally breed a
higher level of mental capability, just like centuries of hunting and leading a life where danger is the norm will breed a race that is more
I have not posted this to offend. This is just life. This is the world we live in and we can see why it is how it is. Is it anybody's fault? No.
Does it mean we should judge people differently because of their racial origins? No. Does it mean that all persons of a race follow the same
But it does mean we should not just stick our collective heads in the sand when the matter of the differences between the races arises. There are
physical differences! It's no-one's fault, no-one needs to take or place blame, it's just the way life is!
