African born blacks residing in western countries as a group possess IQs that are between 5 points and a full standard deviation (15 IQ points) above that of whites living in these countries (see, Gottfredson, 1998; Ostrowsky, 1999; Richardson, 2002; Cross, 1994; Williams, 2005; Nisbett, 2002).

So that the median IQ for Africans is 110 points!

This is especially true for those living in the United States and in the UK. One may also expect to find, according to much of the corroborative literature that relates IQ with education, approximately twice the number of African born immigrants with IQs in the 115 range, than among the general white American population

reference:(Gottfredson, 1998; Ostrowsky, 1999; Williams, 2005; Nisbett, 2002),

and “more” than twice the number of African immigrants in the 125 IQ range

reference:(Gottfredson, 1998; Nisbett, 2002; The Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, 1999-2000).

African born blacks and their offspring have been reported to exceed American born whites in several of the most cognitive socio-economic indicators - particularly in the areas of educational attainment and occupational status - in ways that resemble the gaps observed between native born white and black Americans, in the same indicators

REFERENCE:(Nisbett, 2002; Charles, 2007; Le, 2007; US Census Bureau, Census 2000. "5% Public Use Microdata Sample.").

But let's examine this further, shall we?

The average IQ of Africans in Sub Saharan Africa is 70 (Funtionally retarded). North Africa is a whopping 84, according to "Wealth of Nations is mapped by their IQs" by Glen Owen, Nov 2003.

Your only point is that if you take the brightest from a country...and then match then up against the aggregate of an entire nation, the lowest of the low Whites included, then you barely meet the standard of the whole?
That's not really much of a point when you think about it.

Why do they clump all Africans together? Just like they have separate data for Chinese and Koreans, white Americans and Germans.

Also, Africans work more hard than whites, so I wouldn't call them "functionally retarded".

My question would not be 'what's your IQ' as much as what can you accomplish with your IQ?

How come American churches are funding and building simple pumping stations in Africa if the inhabitants IQ is so impressive?

I guess, me being white and all with a low IQ just don't understand. Must be far too complex for someone as dumb as me.

Please enlighten me further.

Ask Glen Owen why they lumped all Africans together.
An IQ of 70 is the cutoff for being classified as retarded.
"Africans work harder"...your "law" degree is showing LOL

Why do the western countries send Africa condoms by the boatload, yet Aids is rampant among the higher IQ Africans?

What am I missing??????

Are you in essence saying that higher IQ creates poverty?

But how do African born blacks compare to American born blacks? That difference would be interesting to see.

At the end of the day, Whites are a genetically dead end race.

New studies now show that they are genetically inferior.

Natural selection is against them.

I urge all Blacks to not mix with them, let their demise be quick! They need genetic diversity, which they lack, so their new goal is to mix with us and others.

We all know this. Even in the UK, the Africans and Asians perform better than the naitive whites. Our education system is totally different from the West. Part of this could be do with the fact that, Africans are taught to master theory; tests and mock exams are regimental; teaching styles are almost dictatorial; even young children master the time table, measurements etc. Tests are given every morning. The problem is lack of funding in practical e.g technological equipment which is where the West is superior. When I came to the UK, what I did in Africa couple of years before, I found White people and other British born people were having problems with. Even my 9 year old neice who only came here a year ago is saying the samething to me.

they do.

when comparing immigrants in the United States one quickly finds that the racialist models adopted by many Psychologists do not always predict outcomes in the way one might expect. For example, it has been shown that black immigrants born from Zimbabwe (96.7 percent), Botswana (95.5 percent) have high school graduation rates that far exceed all white immigrant and native born groups.

Moreover, the average Nigerian immigrant (58.6 percent) living in the United States is “eight times” more likely to have obtained a bachelors degree than the average Portuguese born (7.3 percent)(Dixon D, 2006; Dixon D, 2005)!

And yet blacks have yet to develop a functioning society and have the lowest number of college grad's.

Keep telling yourself you are special. Without whites, you animals would go extinct. For the love of God, most Africans are still in the neolithic state. No negro has every won a Nobel Prize in anything scientific or another field that actually counts.

yes lets examine further

black African achievement can not simply be dismissed as that of a “small group” of elites entirely unrepresentative of the greater continent. the academic attainment and occupational achievements of black Africans are documented in the UK (Li and Heath, 2006; Dustmann, Theodoropoulos, 2006) as well as in Canada (Guppy and Davies, 1998; Boyd, 2002).

Dustmann and Theodoropoulos (2006) provide a first thorough investigation of educational attainment and economic behavior of ethnic minority immigrants and their children in Britain.

They studied how British born minorities perform in terms of education, employment and wages, when compared to their parent generation as well as to comparable groups of white natives, using 27 years of LFS data (Labour Force Survey).

In terms of educational attainment their results showed a strong educational background for Britain’s ethnic minority immigrant population. In addition, they showed that second generation ethnic minorities do better than their parents, and substantially better than their white peers!

For both generations Black Africans topped the list in both years of schooling/educational qualifications and wages/employment (ibid).
