Educate yourself! Blacks are about TWICE as likely to be serial killers.

"Only a few systematic accounts of the race and ethnicity of serial killers exist. There is an exhaustive study of African American serial killers (Homicide Studies 2005; 9; 271) by criminologist Anthony Walsh, and also Eric W. Hickey’s book, Serial killers and their victims, Brooks/Cole, 1997. Walsh identified 90 African American and 323 white American serial murderers, all men operating between 1945 and 2004.(Though Asians, Hispanics and Native Americans were not included in the study, their addition would not alter the fact that most serial killers are white men.) African American serial killers made up 22% of Walsh’s sample, a figure in close agreement Hickey’s enumeration. But, as blacks number well below 22% of the U.S. population, they are actually overrepresented among the ranks of serial killers — roughly by a factor of 2."

I was watching this science thing about IQ tests and they were saying that the IQ test isn't judging your academic ability but it actually shows how well adapted u r to modern society. Anyway, I didn't get it.

A black person can be clever and still have a low IQ test score and vice versa.

why it has always been obnoxious, I do believe that it has been the recent studies that proved 2nd hand smoke is deadly that led to the banning of it from public places
So what. My point was that it being obnoxious was enough to jusitfy the laws against smoking in public places no different from laws against playing loud music.

I never said you can not find exceptions. Low IQ people tend to make low IQ decisions. If an unmarried, uneducated, unemployed woman gets pregnant and has a baby, poverty is her lifestyle choice for she chose it with her own stupid low IQ behavior. Ghettos are created by the people who live in them, not cast upon these people.

You are not intelligent if:

you do not take school seriously

get involved in drugs, gangs, stealing

waste your money on booze, cigarettes and the lottery

have babies you can not afford to raise

find a gang as a valid career choice

THESE ARE THE BEHAVIORS OF THE POOR Poor people in general are poor quality people, people who make consistently make poor choices.

Show me poor people doing everything right, making wise choices and I'll show you wealthy people doing everything wrong, making stupid choices.

I think that IQ tests to a certain degree are based on how well educated you are in completing IQ tests. I know people with very high IQs who would likely get completely stumped on some of the tests because not having experienced that form of testing would not even be aware of what the test was asking of them. In general though they likely are somewhat represtative of how intelligent a person is. But if you took a very intelligent person out of the jungle in Brazil, who could neither read nor write, and gave him an IQ test verbally, I doubt that he would score very high.

IQ tests measure a number of things. Intelligence is a very general mental capability that, among other things, involves the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, learn quickly and learn from experience. It is not merely book learning, a narrow academic skill, or test-taking smarts. Rather, it reflects a broader and deeper capability for comprehending our surroundings--"catching on," "making sense" of things, or "figuring out" what to do.

What about a passing the orange that you hold under your chin in a mixed group of men and women? That can be exciting. They used to play that at community social events when I was a kid, and so women could get to nuzzle some other woman's husband and vice versa while trying to pass an orange without using their hands.

We were a relatively thin society back in those days. Today I am not sure that about half the population could hold an orange under their chin, because there would be too much fat in the way.

Iq tests do not measure your knowledge, they measure your ability to think for if they measured your knowledge most all peoples IQ would continue to rise through out life.

Intelligence, so defined, can be measured, and intelligence tests measure it well. They are among the most accurate (in technical terms, reliable and valid) of all psychological tests and assessments. They do not measure creativity, character personality, or other important differences among individuals, nor are they intended to.

While there are different types of intelligence tests, they all measure the same intelligence. Some use words or numbers and require specific cultural knowledge (like vocabulary). Others do not, and instead use shapes or designs and require knowledge of only simple, universal concepts (many/few, open/closed, up/down).

You are correct. Race is defined as a group of people related by common heredity.

That's what I was trying to say. They say Indians are good at IQ tests because that's what the questions are like in India and here in England we had to do IQ tests every bloody year, mock and real one's, and u just know what the questions are going to be like, they're always the same, so of course we're gonna do better than black and white people. We're brainwashed for the IQ tests.

Plus we get a good beating from our mother, with the rolling pin, if we don't, lol, I think that's the secret to getting high scores!

I said "race" was a cultural concept, which it is. Genetic differences in populations do not constitute races.

Darwin didn't support racism, or Social Darwinism, which was an agenda driven farce, not a scientific endeavor.

Really? So someone can't be born into a ghetto? Lots of bad things happen in ghettos, not just "low IQ" things. Also, IQ and intelligence are NOT the same thing.
