No one in the school system really wants to get to the truth of this issue due to political correctness.
They're afraid of offending people and having an incredibly stupid issue like the one in Dallas over Black Holes being racist.
Anyway, the well-known biologist, James Watson, thinks it is related to genes.
Of course, there is, no-doubt, a cultural aspect as well. According to a journal by psychologists from UC Berkley and The University of Western Ontario, Asian-Americans are the smartest of the groups in the US with an average IQ of 106.
White Americans come in second with an average IQ of 103;
That follows Watson's ideas about intelligence related to genetics.
There has actually been some research on intelligence related genes regarding Jews. Kinda neat. Google it.

Originally posted by FathomThat is easy, it is because the parents drive them harder. This is also the reason the suicide rates are higher with Asian kids.

Its actually Ashkenazi Jews (European Jews), and converts don't really count.
They have the highest iq of any specific group, averaging something like 125 or so.
Course that will change as many are becoming secular and are marrying outside of their group.

Ok someone earlier raised an interesting point. He mentioned the ethnicity of bums in the street.
I have never ever in my life seen an Asian bum.
I have seen virtually every other type.
In my part of the world it is mostly mexican, and white bums, with a few blacks here and there.
Here are my bum stats for where I live, these are not official by any means, just my observation throughout my life.
BUMS BY RACE:
I don't mean to offend anyone but it is the truth.
Originally posted by StellarX It's actually what? Do you think that 'ashkenazi' have a higher IQ and if so why do you and what sources do you base it on? That's hilarious , in my opinion any ways, and i hope your going to treat us to some sources for these claims.
