Open your mind.

No one is promoting one race over the other.

Some races are just better than others in some areas.

Notice that there are many races, many continents on earth and yet not a single one has completely taken over the world.

As long as “politically correct” thinking requires us to ignore the effects of race, culture, gender and environment on the development and success of individual humans there will always be a “gap” between the “groups’ studied.

You take the best from each race. Which is in the same direction basically. But we have glorified laziness, incompetence, ineptitude, and other bad qualities in the name of political correctness and diversity for the reason of correcting the past. People become what is accepted. And we are there. It is in all races to a degree and has destroyed some people.

Let's do the research again when educational and economic opportunities are equal for all.
It won't matter, the factors which mostly affecting a child's educational success have nothing to do with money and opportunity. It has to do with internal motivation, ability and how it is developed, Support in an encouraging environment with genuine praise and positive re enforcement from parents, teachers, coaches and others, goal setting by the parent or teacher and lastly focused practice of what they are learning. These things make difference in a student trying to get by and a future scholar. I have seen it over and over when kids with nothing and poor outlooks achieve academically in spite of their position in society. And I have seen kids with all the opportunities and help money can buy just barely scrape by it is all because they don't have the internal mechanism for success. More than any other factor it is the fault of parenting where parents don't realize they have a role to play in all this, they can't just turn it over to someone else whose job it is.

goal setting by the student not parent or teacher is what I meant to say

Bill Cosby had it right when he gave what is known as his 'pound cake speech.' Of course he was immediately labeled an 'uncle Tom' for speaking the truth. You can watch it on youtube.
