Just look at how fast Europe developed compared to Sub-Sahara Africa. Duh.

>>>but on that note: that’s not to say that one individual Negro can’t be very smart!!

>>>and that’s not to say they should be enslaved!

>> But, I personally think we should not interbreed....

There’s many blacks that don’t believe in interbreeding

I agree with everything except not enslaving blacks. Blacks are too stupid to vote and have normal people jobs.

Of course black people can be as smart as white people, all it takes to prove that is to find one black person who is smarter than one white person. Surely you will concede that?

While it may be true that the average intelligence of white people is higher than that of black people, and while it may be true that this is due to genetics rather than something like lower quality education (I haven't actually looked at the studies because I don't care), that does not imply that being black automatically limits your intelligence. It does not exclude the possibility that plenty of black people can be as smart as the smartest white people.

You could claim from those statistics that a random black person is more likely than not to be less intelligent than a random white person, but that is not the same as the claim in question here, and it doesn't really matter.

Of course ants can be as smart as humans, because to say otherwise hurts ants feelings.

That's not quite true, because while it is true that many blacks are smarter than many whites there has NEVER been a black person in recorded history who can be called a "genius" compared to white geniuses like Einstein and Tesla. This suggests that blacks can't reach the level of intelligence that the white race can.

Why does you think they have lower quality education? Because stupid people don't care about education, and are bad at educating and being educated, therefor stupid blacks suck at education.

I haven't actually looked at the studies because I don't care

You don't care because you are white, not a race baiting hyper-tribalistic bongo man. Blacks are the most racist people on earth, they constantly kill each other in africa because the people they are killing are from a different tribe, just think about that next time you think a black is capable of getting along with an entirely different race. Very few can cope. Yet when whites engage in tribalistic behaviour they easily defeat the savages, just look at what the nazis or british did in the empirial days.

1. You can google 'black geniuses' and find plenty of black people who have been valuable scientists, though not on the level of (einstein, tesla and co.)

2. In the past it was simply much less likely for a black person to go down the path to become a scientist for all sorts of race related problems other than intelligence (higher poverty rates preventing education, cultural differences, and discrimination) even if they had potential.

3. This wouldn't imply that it is impossible for a black "genius" to exist, just that it is less likely.

Why do you care so much?
