The myth that whites are inherently more intelligent than blacks.

myths surrounding black I.Q.

Perhaps someone here on CD could explain something to me. In all these studies comparing black I.Q. to white I.Q., what kind of test is used to measure I.Q.'s in the first place?

Well, this is the major problem with these studies. The measurements of I.Q. which form the basis of comparison come from tests composed by whites for whites. The tests are culturally biased; it's not surprising that whites would score better than blacks.

Could you give us an example of what you're talking about?

Certainly. Here are some questions that have appeared on recent I.Q. tests. Number one: "You have been invited over for cocktails by the officer of your trust fund. Cocktails begin at 4:30, but you must make an appearance at a 6:00 formal dinner at the Yacht Club. What do you do about dress?

A. Wear your blue-striped seersucker suit to cocktails and change into your tuxedo in the bathroom, apologizing to your host for the inconvenience.

B. Wear your tuxedo to cocktails, apologizing to your host for wearing a dinner jacket before 6:00 PM.

C. Walk to the subway at Columbus Circle and take the "A" Train uptown."

That was funny though, Joe and downvote, how you were going back and forth, I didn't realize it was an SNL skit until I clicked the link.

Good stuff.

Well, it's like the myth that blacks are faster runners than whites in general.

i think if psychoanalysis are done, blacks will come out more emotional... which may hurt their intelligence scale.

but, since i have not read any reports on this, i will not claim that this is true.

although, it has been proven for gender that men are way better at separating logic from emotion, which is why they think more logical.

No offense. Just worried about you silly guys! But if it's not permanent, no worries.

I think IQ test is rather useless.

Like, if you put Einstein in David Beckham's body Einstein still wouldn't score many goals, because David's actually quite smart when it comes to coordination, kinematics and 'body usage' in football, but David would still be a bit useless as a theoretical physicist even if specialized in coordination and kinematics.

And Einstein is known to be a genius and he really was one.

That's my approximation of this.
