There are no "full blooded" people. We all come from the same family tree. I see what you are trying to say but I don't understand how you are applying it to just race. Some people have more natural ability in sports and intelligence regardless of race. Some people have more common sense than others. Some people are born with more advantages and are pushed and encouraged to succeed. Others don't have the oportunity.
I think man is the most intelligent mammal,followed by the chimpanzee,which is also the most intelligent primate.

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.
Here is something else that supports my theory.

It is a scientific fact that Boys seem to be better at the subjects of math and history.

You can take a brother and sister from the same family that has had the same exact opportunities and have been raised in the same exact environment. And usually (Not every time) but usually the boy is better at math and history and the girl is usually better at English and health. Now this is a PROVEN scientific fact. So if there are differences in abilities of male and female brain of the same family then there MUST be differences in the abilities of the brain from race to race.

Of corse there are differences. There are differences from person to person. What I am saying is you can't put everybody in a certain group because of race,gender,political offiliation,lol. I'm a girl and I always had the highest grade in math,algebra,etc and got the award.

There are some full blooded people still around. Not here in America. But in places like China Japan, Ireland, middle east. Some of those people can trace their lineage back thousands of years.

And I am talking about back before there were even such a thing as schools.

But of course some people of the same race are more intelligent. You can have a class room full of nuts and one nut will not be quite as stupid as the rest but he's still lacking in the intelligent department.

And my point is more about things the way they were thousands of years ago when the world was FULL of full blooded people. Some seemed to be way more intelligent than others. And even today some seem to be able to reason and problem solves quicker than others.

Put it this way. Name me a handful of blacks or native Americans that invented something that changed the world that was NOT influenced by some other race. Can you do it?

Even in school. Many black kids that had great parents and wore a heck of a lot nicer clothes than I could afford.(In other words their problem was NOT due to being raised in a broken home or a bad environment) Seemed to have a real problem with keeping up with the rest of the class. And thats a FACT! But I guess I am a racist because I noticed those things huh?

Well if you agree that there are differences in the abilities of the brain. from race to race. Then why shouldn't science delve deeper into this subject? Heck they may find cures for things such as dementia, dyslexia...

And why cant we put people in certain groups?

It's not racist to say heck man them Japanese can out spell just about everybody!

Or to say that blacks though faster quicker seems to have a real problem comprehending? Whats wrong with that? If its the truth then lets explore it, solve it, and then we can all TRULY become equal!

Think about this.

Killer bees are nothing more than Honey bees. But they are way more aggressive than the European honey bees. Why? The brain controls aggression. Scientist claim it is because the killer bee which was brought here from Africa had many more predators to deal with than their European counterparts, so over time they developed a ferocious aggressiveness in order to protect their honey.

Well maybe Africans of the human race had to rely more on physical ability to survive. Maybe evolution gave them the ability of speed and quickness so they could outrun predators or chase down prey. While in other places where the resources needed for survival were minimal evolution gave the people a brain more adapted to problem solving.

Now I am not saying that there are people who cannot be taught or educated. Of course anyone can learn and grow intellectually. But I DO firmly believe that some races posses an ability to learn and understand at a quicker pace.

Whatcha thank?

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?
You can thank the white man slave master for this. Haha!

Interesting word, race. It implies that "it's us versus them". We're all in the same boat together.
And as far as the smartest race goes, the most intelligently written book that I ever read in my lifetime (and I've read multitudes of books) was a book on Time and Physics. It was written by an Iranian, translated into English. If I remember my school classes from long ago, the concept of number zero initiated in the Mid-east.
I think physical ability as well as mental ability is distributed on a gaussian curve regardless of the race.
If we went to live in the jungle, we would be the dumb ones because we wouldn't know a tiger from a polecat!

I still disagree.

I do NOT think it is possible that our brains would make us so different in appearance only.

Nature has no fear of what people thinks about it, it doesn't care if people call it racism. And if, in EVERY single type of animal on this planet there are differences in the intelligent level in species of the SAME family. Then there has to be differences in the human brain from race to race also. To say that humans are the ONLY animals that are NOT different is absolutely absurd. And the only reason I know that a person would make this claim is out of fear of being labeled a racist. But when has it became racism to acknowledge the TRUTH!

Are you saying that nature made so many different races of people and made them look so different in stature, eye color, hair color, shape of the face and other aspects of the human body and then stopped short and said to itself. "Now lets make every brain equal when it comes to intelligent levels becuase we sure don't want to be called a racist"

Nature is NOT fair! Nature is brutal! Nature is ALL about preference and nature gives each the tools to survive and gives the necessary physical and mental abilities needed to have an advantage over each groups adversaries.

Is it becuase of each geographical location that each group of humans evolved from that makes them so different? I dont know. But if there are physical differences that we can see with the naked eye then there must be intellectual differences also!

Maybe not If our ancestors would have evolved from jungle like environments perhaps they would have utilized the vast amount of resources jungles provide for its inhabitants.

Look at the Mayans. They dwelt in huge thick forest and look at what they accomplished. And that was thousands of years before any white settlers ever arrived on the continent. When just a few miles north on what is now modern day America. Native Americans were far far behind what the Mayans accomplished. Even though they had huge resources at their disposal.

Most tribal peoples of America and Africa never even developed the ability to communicate through the written word. When THOUSANDS of years before not only were Arabs, Europeans, Asians communicating through the written word they were writing incredible stories of imagination. Maybe thats what it all comes down to. Imagination. Imagination triggers curiosity, curiosity causes a desire to search for answers and the search for answers ultimately leads to the increase of intelligence..

Ouch! The "raw truth" hurts.
I actually agree with you more than I let on. Like someone told me once, I am "like the voice of an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing".
I love that quote.
Raw Truth, here is a question for you. Why is this forum (Harlan's) on Topix the only one with any intelligent conversations? And at that, mainly you and Jimmy Rants.

That is what I am trying to tell you. All humans come from Africa. That is where we started. Africa was not like it is now it was very inhabitable and green. We humans began to branch out most likely because the climate change. The conditions in Africa became harsh. The world was different then. All humans can be traced back to one man and one one woman in Africa.
