Does Reel need to cite that gem again? and again? and again? and again? and again? and again? and again?
You just destroyed any of your alleged credibility by:

citing anything that troll says.

ascribing IQ measurements to anyone in sub-Saharan Africa.

using IQ measurements at all.

As someone said in another thread, all races are equal in their own way. All races are certainly equal in the eyes of God. Perhaps some races are better at some things but they are also not as good at other things.

Also, we are talking about averages. If I were to say that on average whites are not as good as blacks at something, that in no way implies that there are not many whites who in fact are.

I just wanted to set the record straight. I am not into race supremacy.

Thank you,

Good fortune?

Why do black people from East Africa make better long distance runners?
Luck?

Do you think all races are the same?

I don't understand your reluctance to discuss intelligence. Intelligence is real, measureable, substantial and pervasive in almost all aspects of human life. Intelligence is the single most accurate predictor of how well humans will do in life.

Intelligence has been researched and studied by many people for many years and it will continue to be so. I study and research intelligence and you try to make me out to be the 'bad guy' for reporting my findings. You are shooting the messenger, my friend.

If something is just my opinion I will say so. Otherwise I deal with facts proven through years of research, study and testing. Just because you may be unhappy with where the chips fall doesn't refute any of the findings by experts in the field.
