IQ's:

And qualifications:

http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2004/...

[Quoted from the site:]

All minority ethnic groups in Scotland are at least as or more likely to have degrees (or equivalent) than White Scottish people. Those most likely to have degrees from ethnic minority groups are Africans, people from 'Other' ethnic groups and Indians.

People from the White Scottish group and Pakistanis are the least likely to have degrees (17%).
Pakistanis are also the most likely to have no qualifications (43%) followed by Chinese people (38%) and White Scottish people (35%). In contrast, only 15% of African people aged 16-74 years have no qualifications.

[...]

The group with the highest proportion of people educated to degree level is the African group (47%) but the qualification profile is more polarised than for the younger age groups and 32% of the population has no qualifications. The next highest is the Bangladeshi group (45%) followed by the Indian group (42%).

And what's funny is many more science and technology industries are literally importing their engineers and scientists from Africa than they are from Europe.

but shh, this shouldn't ever get out as a stereotype

while all stereotypes are bad, if I had to choose between a positive one and a negative one for my people I'd sure as hell take the former.

Well, we know this poster's no scientist as he appears to lack comprehention of the meaning of the term "*average*".

Also, African Americans have higher 'IQs' on *average* than many in South Asia. What does this mean? What does IQ mean?

Nothing about intellect, that's for sure.

Because I'm sure you would agree we recruit more scientists from Southern Asia than from the African American community.

IQ tests have been shown to correlate with socio-economic realities, and hence are a rather in-accurate measure for inate ability.

Infact, I posted a link to an article about studies on the subject.

Actually, speaking of "inate-ability", genetic studies of the our genetic distance have found us to still have the same brain capabilities - or atleast there is no evidence for certain populations ever having differed in developement in this area, contrary to the beliefs, and attempted psuedo-scientific studies of some.

most however come from Asia.
but yeah, African immigrants in Europe and in the US have among the highest IQ. but there's about 1mil Africans in America and few million in Europe so its a few amount of ppl compare to 15mil Asians in US.
its part of the "Brain Drain" or African Dispora that many African countries are expriencing. many of the best scientist,doctors,engineers &mathemations are taken to industrial countries and not returning to help their ppl.

it also has to do with environment.most African children in African nations want to go to school but are not able to or have poorly qualified teachers.
in develop nations, Africans unlike black americans,inspire to be mostly doctors and engineers to help send a portion of their wealth back home.
my father is half nigerian and was brought here to study at John HopkinsU. now he and my mom are both surgeons. and about 1/3 of their income goes back to nigeria and brazil.most nigerians in UK and US are doctors

If IQ tests have a European cultural bias, then why do newly-arrived Asians do so well on them while American blacks, who are surrounded by "Euro-culture," do so poorly?

Good question.
How about Asians/Whites getting higher SAT scores?

The same question arises with regard to SAT scores. Even blacks concede there is no cultural bias attached to the math portion of the SAT.

its simple babe, many black americans see rapping or basketball as their main source of achieving status besides education like in whites or Asians.
but this is not about black Americans, as their culture needs a total make over. this about Africans not black Americans

report from CNN said that Chinese, Japanese and Viets societies put high emphasis in eduation unlike Cambodia and S.E. Asian societies.
asians are constantly learning as a part of life not because they have too.
look at black american scores compared to African American/UK African scores, they is a huge difference. UK Africans on average score the highest among other race in the UK.
while in America African immigrants score just as high as asians and white jews. all three are considered Model Minority.

Black kids who do well in school and are good in math and science are bullied and sterotyped as "nerds" and "oreos". I am a Black woman in my late 40's and this happened to me personally. I scored over 1400 on the SAT 30 years ago. This was very unusual at that time. BTW I earned a full ride scholarship to Ohio State University. I also have a fairly high IQ. I have three degrees. Not all Blacks have low IQ's. There is a lot of social pressure in the Black community to concentrate on sports and music rather that academics. Black kids who excel academically often have no friends or social lives. They often live isolated lives away from other Blacks who refuse to accept them.

My fiance is from Northren Ireland and immigrated to the US about 30 years ago because of the situation in his home country. He is an naturalixed American citizen. He is educated here and has an advanced degree. We both work in the IT field. A lot of people don't know this but the Republic of Ireland has a growing African population. I have been doing some research. My fiance is considering moving there in the future to start his own IT business. I will be going with him of course. The educational system is steadily improving over there and the economy is booming. There are a lot of Black Europeans that are well-educated and high achieving. I feel I have more in common with European Blacks than American Blacks in the area of educational achievement and mindset.

The focus on the thread is Africans.

By the way, they are the highest acedemically acheiving immigrant group in the United States.

African, Indian, Chinese.

European is somewhere further down the list.

Anyone want a link?

Yep, it's cultural^.

Africans and Asians alike have cultures rich in math and science.

Black Americans and whites however, don't.

Also, note, in the hood, you're definitely gonna be dancing, and probably singing, playing sports, and other physical far-fetched 4 life-success skills all day long. If not, you're out having kids, or getting into trouble. I've been over there, as I know alot of people from there. Or did.

Here in the white suburbs, I notice there are alot of other things to do for fun, but there is a much much greater focus on school.

From what I've seen, the blacks that HAVE come from the ghetto and AREN'T into drugs and crime, seem to do just as good if not better than folk from here.

The reason? It's not natural, but motivation. Kids here don't really care too much more than do most 'blacks'. Only the expectations or should I say requirements their parents put on them.

Also, that's the last thing, availability.

Who mentioned a European cultural bias other than yourself?

And some can. Like the ones given to South African children to gather data for the Bell Curve( an old debunked out-dated racist dogma book).

They had questions asking about tennis games and other shyt they would not have known about.

What's funny is their scores weren't abominable.
