I have a question that though it may sound racist is actaully very legitimate.

Are some races of people more intelligent than others?

Think about this

When Europeans first came to this continent they encountered a people who seemed to have just stepped out of the cave a few years before.

Europeans and people of other regions of the world were hundreds perhaps thousands of years ahead of the Native Americans. All over the world people had made HUGE strides in science, health, literature, construction, astronomy. And here was a people dwelling on the most mineral rich land mass on the planet, that offered unlimited resources and they had utilized hardly NONE of them. Their innovations and use of the astronomical amount of natural resources available to them seemed to be restricted to the use of animal products and the use of sticks and stones.

Don't it look like one of them Indians would have said "Me going to split trees make'um lumber and build warm house. Me tired of freezing my azz off in Tee-Pee?" No wonder they were called "Savages"

And whats that say about the countless African tribes that had to be dragged kicking and screaming into the 20th century?

So are some races of people more intelligent than others? Do some possess a greater ability to learn, invent, explore....

You know if people were not afraid to ask certain questions we may learn many things about the human race.

I knew that this question would anger a lot of peolpe. But think about this.

There ARE differences in the numerous human races. Differences that can be observed with the naked eye. Such as skin color, hair color, stature.

Now if we say that the BRAIN controls everything in the human body even down to the color of ones eyes. And if some races of people are bigger, stronger, more physically gifted than other members of the human race. Then dont it stand to reason that there would be differences in the mental capabilities of certain races also?

How can we say that the differences in people are only skin deep. If we are so different outside then there must be differences INSIDE also. Correct?

How many FULL blooded Native Americans, African Americans, can you name that invented something that changed the world? How many can you name?

Are you saying that Asians are completely different from Europeans in APPEARANCE only?

There are hundreds of different members of the primate family. But scientist claim that Orangutans are the most intelligent of all the primates.

Do you think that these differences are limited to the animal kingdom only?

I think that ESPN has proven beyond doubt that African Americans are much more physically gifted than white people are.

If a white man was going to have a foot race with a black man. Who would you put your money on?

My question is. DO the differences end there? Are the differences in the races of humans confined to physical ability? What about the intellectual ability?

I think it had alot to do with adaptation because of population,isolation,etc. Europeans were greedy and had lots of social classes. They had lots of filth and disease. They just threw their sh&t in the streets so they had to come up with science to cure dieases. Indians had natural cures for their ailments. Many Europeans starved. Indians knew how to live off the land. All people are decendants from the same dark skinned people,science has proved it through DNA. Blond hair and blue eyes has only been present for the past 10-15 thousand years. Yes I do think black athletes have an edge in some sports but during slavery they were bred like animals to bring out their best physical qualities to make them strong and endure,just like living in the harsh environment of deserts,etc. Does this mean any race is superior? Not really,they just adapted mentally, physically,etc. as needed to their environments.

I'm not talking about a "Superior" race!

And I don't think it is racist to ask these types of questions.

Think about it. Some races of people accomplished incredible feats and they did it with very LIMITED resources. So we cannot say that their advancement was due to their geographical location.

Because some, with very limited resources accomplished MUCH more than others who were exposed to an abundance of resources!

Thousands of years ago men had already been building incredible structures that even we, with all of our technology today cannot duplicate. Some were carving amazing sculptures, writing amazing works of literature, setting complex cities, forming effective governments. And then at the same time people with MORE resources were only slightly more advanced than neanderthal man. And your assumptions that blacks are faster quicker because of breeding is not accurate. Even today people of Africa that have had no influence from the white man excel in sports such as track.

So if all of these physical traits are undeniably different. Then there MUST be a difference in the abilities of some races to comprehend! Correct?

If any part of evolution is true then it would have to support my claims. Evolution teaches that each life form evolved to thrive in their own environment and that evolution gave each the best possible tools needed to survive in their own environment. Well some may have had to THINK to survive. In places were food was scarce shelter could not be found, clothing was obsolete. Wouldn't that cause a race to have to depend upon the power of the mind for survival more than physical ability?

And who can deny that Asians seem to learn quicker than most other races? Icelanders for seem reason seem to be incredibly strong. Latinos are small in stature.. So if all of these differences are so obvious. Then there MUST be differences in some races as a whole abilities to self educate also.

Blacks have had to adapt to the harsh conditions and have been used as slaves for thousands of years. Asians go to school much more than our children do and do not tolerate failure. But many are living in severe poverty and do not have the freedoms we have,cannot control their population without multiple abortions,have their children stolen. They are killed and go missing frequently,all kinds of atrocities happen to them. It makes me glad to be a poor hillbilly.
But what you are talking about is only a like a grain of sand in time. Sure people are going to develop differently. Just like every child is not going to walk and talk at the same time. But every person cannot be catagorized in a specific group.

You're sorta getting away from the point I am trying to make.
This is NOT about race superiority, atrocities of one race committed by another, or what kind of hardships one race faces that others do not.

I just absolute REFUSE to believe that our brains made us different on the OUTSIDE ONLY!

That is IMPOSSIBLE!

There are portions of the brain that control height, skin color, eye color and shape, hair color.... etc And there are portions of the brain that is responsible for informaiton gathering and the power of reasoning. So if we (Now remeber I am talking about FULL blooded people here) are so DIFFERENT in outward appearance. Then there MUST be differences in the way one brain of one race interprets info and the brains ability to understand, cope, deduce.. Don't you agree?

And hey this is not a RACIST question. I am as white as frosty the snow man and I will be the first to admit that most Asians seem to be able to learn quicker than others. And most blacks are quicker faster..

If we could ask these questions without the fear of being labeled a racist, we may learn many new and interesting things about the brain. We could even possibly find cures for certain afflictions of the brain. But when someone ask a question like this they are immediately branded a racist.

If it is a PROVEN fact that some animals of the same exact species are more intelligent than others then this has to be the same with humans. Why cant we admit that?

Dolphins are the most intelligent of all mammals!

Orangutans are the most intelligent of all primates!

Now each of these are part of their own animal family that has several different species but they posses a greater ability to learn. And if this is so prevalent in the animal kingdom and in EVERY species of animal then it must.. it HAS to be the same with humans!

OK.

Lets go way back before America even began dealing in slavery. Heck lets go back before there was even an America.

Many races of people had built amazing cities. The China wall was already built, the Pyramids, The Roman cathedral, astounding roads that stretched for hundreds of miles.. ets Great and amazing sculptures were erected. Writing had been around for thousands upon thousands of years. Aqueducts were constructed. Weapons of war developed. Iron Copper and bronze had already been utilized.

But in Africa people who had more resources available to them than just about any other race of people. Were still running around in loin clothes with a technology that was limited to sticks and stones.

Ask yourself this question. Where would the Africans, Native Americans be if it had not been for the influence of other races? They would probably still be living in mud huts and dwellings constructed out from animal hide.
