"Flynn is famous for having discovered in the 1980s that average IQs in many countries have been drifting upward at about 3 points per decade over the past couple of generations. In fact, the average has risen by an astonishing 15 points in the last 50 years in the United States. In other words, a person with an average IQ of 100 today would score 115 on a 1950s IQ test.



Flynn believes that the data show that the black/white gap is closing—that the average IQ scores of black Americans are rising faster than those of whites. And he began his talk at AEI by describing a study done by a German psychometrician who tested the IQs of 170 white and 69 half-black children left behind in Germany by American GIs. The average score for the white kids was 97 and 96.5 for the half-black kids. Flynn pointed out that the black German kids would probably have had a harder time in German society, yet they scored almost identically to their white counterparts. If the Eyferth study is right, the differences in IQ cannot be attributed to genetics..."

Realtime is actually funny...in a pathetic sort of way.

He's one of those Topix posters who thinks they're smart because they have a couple of (legitimately) brain damaged fans (see: Ghost, Lily)

Ever notice he never actually offers a rebuttal to, nor refutes an opposing point or argument?

So glaciers on Long Island are not part of our current climate situation? Certainly you weren't claiming that because the planet warmed before that it is not possible for man to be a factor in our climate today.

moving beyond your selective editing....

When his turn came, Charles Murray noted that the black/white IQ score gap did close somewhat during the 20th century, but that the data show that the narrowing stalled sometime in the 1970s.“The remaining gap will be with us indefinitely,” he concluded. Murray argued that a lot the earlier narrowing of the gap occurred as more educational and job opportunities opened and better health and nutrition became available for blacks as state-enforced segregation ended. Once a “merely adequate” environment is provided, there are diminishing marginal returns for increasing IQ scores. He noted that the programs established by the No Child Left Behind Act have had almost no effect on the black/white educational achievement gap. Murray also observed that the German study of children born to American GIs given such prominence because its findings conform to the beliefs and hopes of those who think that environmental influences are solely responsible for the black/white gap in average IQ scores. However, it is contrary to the vast majority of the literature on racial differences in IQ test scores.

So are the IQ tests adjusted for surviving in the impoverished ghettoes of America??

Like Ferguson, Misery??

Do you have any idea what IQ tests actually reflect?? DUH

I mean, what priviledged white people produce these tests that reflect privelidged white values and culture??

And who does well on tests that are culturally rigged from the git-go??

Is Ben Carson one of your insultees?? Herman Cain?? Allen West??

You nitwits are awfully selective about which negroes you support and which you want to kill.

But your obvious racism shines through.
