There's at least a 100 years of intelligence testing history indicating racial/ethnic groups differ in average intelligence, mostly lower than the white average. But that's not the only or necessarily the most significant objection to multiculturalism.

So you believe Norwegians are all more intelligent than everyone from a 3rd world country?
Replace "all" and "everyone" with "on average"... and stop smacking yourself in the head, it lowers IQ.

My IQ isn't terribly high, but it's high enough to recognize that you deviously changed the comparison from Norwegians vs. third worlders to whites vs. non-whites. Hard to say on the latter comparison. East Asians and some South Asians average a little higher than whites, and the rest of the non-white world quite a bit lower...

Saying this again still doesn't make it true.

This is not true. There is a gap in black/white IQs but it has shrunk significantly over the last few decades, too quickly to be explained by genetics or evolution. That implies that IQ tests are measuring something other than innate intelligence, or that intelligence is partially the result of upbringing and as a result the gap is explained by socio-economic causes. That doesn't stop racists of moderate intelligence from misunderstanding the data they are looking at and using it to draw conclusions that support the biases they already have.

The most likely explanation is that IQ is a flawed measure of raw brainpower. That it is, to a certain degree, picking up the biases of what academics consider to be intelligence, which is colored by their cultural preconceptions. The narrowing IQ gap in the US is probably is probably driven by the fact that the cultural distance between white and black Americans is significantly less now than it was 40 or 50 years ago, and that black Americans probably have better access to early education than they did in the past, on average.

You mean tests 'performed' by whites.

That's it.
