First, I'm very skeptical that you frame your argument from a desire to help blacks people, because your other comments say otherwise. Secondly, what evidence is there that blacks do worse in integrated schools? And third, is the only solution segregation? Segregation has been tried before, and it didn't work too well, for a long list of reasons.
<quoted text>
Even the tests you cite, which I still question, show a very slight difference. I see no reason why differences in economics, cultural, and and quality of education would not affect those scores, and those factors do exist. I see no objective evidence that blacks are inherently less intelligent than whites, only that in an aggregated study they performed slightly lower.
"First, I'm very skeptical that you frame your argument from a desire to help blacks people, because your other comments say otherwise."
'My commnents say no such thing and if you need to go off point like this it is your integrity that is in question not mine.

There is overwhelming evidence that blacks do worse than their white classmates in school.http://www.eastbayexpre ss.com/ebx/rich-black-flunking /Content?oid=1070459

Segregation in the classroom may be the only solution if blacks can't learn as quickly as whites and continue to fail and drop out in large numbers. What is better, to pretend they are just alike and let them continue to fail or to face the matter honestly and adjust their learning schedule so they don't?

Now that we have prophylactics, can't the church say that procreation should only happen within marriage, but sex outside of marriage is OK, as long as it's safe sex? The whole idea that sex is only for procreation is patently ridiculous and not followed anyway. Sex should be encouraged for fun and emotional bonding.
Who said anything about sex for procreation only? That is ridiculous. That's not what God wants, that's why He made sex so much fun, desirable & easy.

Sex IS encouraged for fun & bonding.

As part of Obamacare, if they turn in their firearms they will receive a free penile enlargement procedure. No deductible. Two inches for a shotgun, four for an assault weapon, six for a rocket launcher.
ROFL.... that was really funny :p

That's exactly what it tells us. It also provides clues pertaining cosmic expansion (spectral shift).
It might tell us what may happen in our section of the universe, but don't you find it arrogant to say that we think we know what the universe consists of? We can't even see the whole universe, let alone know what it consists of.

Somebody (I think it was Catcher) brought up that if Adam and Eve were the first humans, were they given the gift (ha) of language and if so, what language was it? I find this interesting, but I'm too damn lazy to look into it.

I don't give a rats ass where someone was born or if they are a "citizen" or not.

If you stand by and allow innocent American children to be slaughtered then you are as much a terrorist as those who committed 9/11 on this great country. It doesn't get any simpler than that.

No, I don't think it's arrogant to say "We think we know".

Bullshit. That's why when Aura called himself an American Man, you compared that to terrorists...

What makes you assume that our non-corporeal being is trapped within a physical realm?
I have never seen any credible proof that a soul exist. I have never seen any credible proof that a soul doesn't exist. Therefore I haven't decided one way or the other. However, we weren't talking about that. We were talking about if a person can experience life after death and there is no question that when the lights go out - that's it.

Nothing to be scared of. You will feel no pain, no emotions and have no thought process. You would need a living brain to experience any of these.

Religion has nothing to do with it.

Science teaches us what the universe is & what it consists of, but current science is far too ignorant to tell us that.

Is that your argument that science knows what the universe consists of?
