Regarding this, Chase claims that her research protocol had a fatal flaw: she omitted those tests done exclusively only on white, that gave proof of socio- economic and socio-biological factors known to be involved in the IQ test scores of all ethnic groups(Chase 1980, 451). She also took at face value all of the statements made by Brigham in his 1923 book and dismissed or made light of the fact that he had repudiated them in 1950. Her conclusions were as expected, all of the tests prove innate (genetic) differences in intelligence between Negroes and Whites without taking into consideration the environmental factor, that attribute to .5 or at least by some studies 50% of the IQs result. The American Indian ranks consistently, below the white man on test of mental capacity; the greater the admixture of white blood, the smaller the deviation from the performance of the white (chase 1980, 454)
Black in America have suffered socio-economic and cultural disadvantages for generation past; it seems a reasonable hypothesis that their low average IQ[test scores is due to environmental rather than to genetic factors( quoted in chase 1980, 461).
This, her basic ideas, was profoundly simplified for the lay public such as Swerty by Jensen, Garrett, Shuey, William Shockley, Carleton Putmnam, and a host of other promoters of herediterian ideology have worked hard to maintain the racial world view. Bothe Shockley and Punam were independent businessmen who invested in publishing materials to proselytize their views. And case claims that Garrett and Shuey both wrote materials on race differences for publication and dissemination by the white citizen councils that were formed, beginning in the summer of 1954, to oppose the changes taking place in South. ..part of eugenic-movement, which is based on the notion that to improve in race by selective breeding!!!!
The controversy over intelligence quotient (IQ) tests (also called cognitive ability tests), what they measure, and what this means for society has not abated since their initial development by Alfred Binet.
IQ tests rely largely upon Symbolic Logic (etc.) as a means to scoring, and as Symbolic Logic is not inherently synonymous with intelligence, the question remains as to exactly what is being measured via such tests. For instance, it is feasible that someone could possess a prodigious wealth of emotional intelligence while being simultaneously unable to comprehend the significance of sequentially arranged shapes. Additionally, someone who cannot read would be at a significant disadvantage on an IQ test, though illiteracy is not indicative of unintelligence. Measurements of other forms of "intelligence" have been proposed to augment the current IQ Testing Methodology, though such alternative measurements may also be a subject of debate.

Some key issues in the debate include defining intelligence itself (see general intelligence factor) and the political ramification of findings.
Some proponents of IQ testing argue that lower scores by certain groups justify cutting back on welfare and programs like Head Start and New Deal. Many proponents believe different IQ scores demonstrate that power and wealth will always be distributed unequally. Critics claim that IQ tests do not measure intelligence, but rather a specific skill set valued by those who create IQ tests.
Various statistical studies have reported that income level, education level, nutrition level, race, and sex all correlate with IQ scores, but what this means is debated.
Some researchers have concluded from twin studies and adoption studies that IQ has high heritability, and this is often interpreted by the general public as meaning that there is an immutable genetic factor affecting or determining intelligence. This hereditarian interpretation fuels much of the controversy over books such as The Bell Curve, which claimed that various racial groups have lower or higher group intelligence than other racial and ethnic groups (East Asians and Ashkenazi Jews, according to The Bell Curve, are slightly more intelligent than generic whites, whereas blacks have slightly lower IQs) and suggested changing public policy as a result of these findings.
The degree to which nature versus nurture influences the development of human traits (especially intelligence) is one of the most intractable scholarly controversies of modern times.
The tests were eagerly adopted at first as a way to select talent from all social levels, but today their use can be considered contentious, partly because they do not find equal amounts of intelligence everywhere.
The normal developmental trajectory is that aptitude at learning and reasoning -- mental horsepower -- increases quickly in youth, peaks in early adulthood, and then declines slowly thereafter and drops precipitously before death. The good news is that some important abilities resist the downturn.
I am just wondering, where you as a person swerty- standing on that trajectory! It seems to me, from what you are writing/scribble - a sheer ignoramus - you do this, for no other reason than make you feel good about yourself, for most probably a loser in real life. This tells me you are low life and tend to compensate for the short -comings by priding yourself in white success that is, in others life success as individual what a pity!

I suspect, so are you in the same league as all who are soiled one way or the other, now what? IF you do feel like a rejectee (in person) over this, that is too bad LOOOL tough luck, what a sad story! For all I can tell, she could pass for those African-American super models and I dont think one considers her to be a white. That puts your judgment on question or better, maybe your personal physical description somehow fits hers, and someone reminded you to be NOT one of us as whitey and told you to stop this nonsense complex-ridden persona you are displaying .better, ask her in person, what a freaking loser LOOOL
You mean to say their fingers as in up your fag arse: D Your are just another androgynous surfing the internet to talk rubbish 24/7 never mind u! Gerbil - Meriones longifrons - nothing better to do but try scurrying as rodent to stimulate your anus before someone squash you to meet you maker or to the next re-incarnation, most likely coming back as a rodent, different from your past life That is the ultimate goal of your life, fag! What a pity LOL

In reality, Muslim immigrants are a success story. They have high levels of educational attainment. Their birthrate is converging quickly with that of the general population. They are likely to ultimately make up less than 2 percent of the population, around the same share as Episcopalians and Jews.

yeah I already said not just the crusades. I was saying you know those missionaries all they want is to spread because that's what's taught in their faith. Islam doesn't teach that to make it you must convert to islam. In this day and age most anyone who believes in GOD is ok by the teachings of the quran. Christians aren't as accepting sorry. You guys just aren't. You only say one way not many roads to rome kind of thing which makes you guys pushy on your faith and therefore hard to live with. When a people are pushy to another aout their faith of course the other individual would find it easier if you the pushy ones just converted but it's not a teaching of the faith just convenience

The only ones now that push thier faith are the jehovah's and islam. and yes islam pushes its religion on everyone as much as they can. They may not have missionaries like the old christians and catholics, but they still push for people to convert. Islam just has a different style of missionaries. Yes islam is very pushy, they want to change the laws here and the way of life here, so yes that is very pushy. Here i have found the christians are less pushy then the muslims around here so maybe we will have to say it depends on the area.
