    The short answer is yes—there is a clear, predictable and causal link between low intelligence and prejudice, including racism.

    Just out of general interest. Which in your opinion is more trustworthy. A "Blog" which relies on clearly attributed peer reviewed papers and primary evidence / documentation, OR, some shite from the mainstream media which talks about "the science" and "sources tell us"?

    KW is just displaying "Confirmation Bias". It is one of the most important terms of the internet era, when you realise that the masses never actually wanted facts. They want confirmation, and thus filter their 'facts' accordingly.

    sabang, at times you just need to stop being a Backspin-Light, thinking you're right and doubling down by throwing faux-intellectual claptrap around.

    No doubling down in repeating a fact. Races differ in average IQ.

    That's an overly simplistic statement that ignores a lot of factors and nuances and, more importantly, lacks proven scientific basis.

    And the biggest problem is that race does not scientifically exist.

    Not sure IQ has anything to do with being smart. Assuming we are not talking about appearance, then "having or showing a quick-witted intelligence" would not necessarily be applied to a ponderous genius.

    You also have the issue of race, and what that is? We are the Human Race, and only racists try to separate people based on colour of skin pigmentation.

    Lastly, how do you take into account people who pretend to have a fragment of a race in them so they can get a stiffy for a Haka? Do you take on their "self identification"

    into account as well?

    You may be born with specific genes that benefits your brain—or 22 genes, to be exact—but making the most those genes is still up to you.


    If you're only goal in life is to spread genes around you are fuc*ed and your offspring's will end up like you.
    If you are too busy banging your head to the floor you loose reality and education becomes your enemy.

    ...completely ignoring what I actually said and just constructing a series of straw men to tilt at is not very smart.

    Indicative of a low IQ too.
