Poll: Most whites say blacks are lazier or less intelligent than whites (3 graphs)

America is less racist than in decades past. But racism still holds a surprisingly tight grip on how we view racial groups. It may be 2014 and not 1964, but a majority of whites still see blacks as lazier or less intelligent than they are.

The 2012 American National Election Study included interviews with nearly 5,500 Americans. Among the questions included were questions asking people to rate whites and blacks on their intelligence and work ethic.

Rather than asking whether whites and blacks were equal, the survey asked respondents to place each racial group on seven point scales. They rated both blacks and whites from “intelligent” to “unintelligent.” They also rated blacks and whites for work ethic, from “hard working” to “lazy”.

The results will be shocking to anyone who believes we are living a post-racist society.

stereotypes work ethic

A majority of whites in the survey rated blacks as lazier than whites. Whites gave themselves a score of 3.0 (with 1.0 being “hard working”); they gave blacks an average score of 4.0. A full 53 percent of whites scored whites as more hardworking than blacks. 44 percent gave whites and blacks the same score on work ethic.

For blacks, nearly two-thirds gave equal scores to whites and blacks. While some see whites as more hard working and some see blacks this way, they balance out so that the average scores were basically the same.

stereotypes intelligence

The pattern is slightly better for ratings of intelligence, but it is still disturbing. A majority of whites say that blacks and whites are equal. Still, 44 percent said whites were more intelligent.

For blacks in the survey, the result for work ethic was the same as for intelligence. The vast majority said the groups were equal. And those that didn’t balance out, leaving the average scores roughly equivalent.

stereotypes both

So, let’s get down to brass tacks: How many people see blacks as both lazy and stupid?

One third of whites rated blacks as less intelligent and lazier than whites. Another quarter of whites said that blacks were either lazier or less intelligent than whites. Together, this means that nearly six-in-ten whites view themselves as superior to blacks.

Just under a third see the two groups as equal on both qualities. A minority gave blacks the edge on one of the characteristics (usually hard working). And one percent rated blacks as better on both.

For blacks, views of white and black equality is very different. A plurality see groups as equal. But more importantly, the pattern in the graph is “bell-shaped”. One side balances out the other. Blacks, on average, see blacks & whites as equals. Whites, however, are more likely than not to see themselves as more hard working and/or more intelligent than blacks.

  • Drew G. I. Hart had a wonderful piece in Christian Century today on the problem of social critics playing “the race card” (http://www.christiancentury.org/blogs/archive/2014-12/we-aren-t-playing-race-card-we-are-analyzing-racialized-deck#). The data you report here suggests that if anyone is “playing the race card”, it’s the white respondents of this survey. Blacks are far more committed to social values of equality, even while suffering from its lack.

  • Tobin,

    I take most polls with a grain of salt. Especially when columnists like yourself leads off with “Most Whites say….” when only a tiny fraction of Whites in this country were actually polled (I’m a Black man and I can see that one from a mile away).

    Beyond your desk, beyond your Google searches, there is something called the real world out there. Are there Whites out there who think less of Black folks? Absolutely. Are there Black folks who think less of THEMSELVES by calling each other “N***a’s, b*****s, etc.? Absolutely.

    Frankly, I lose no sleep over what you or any other White person thinks of me. To do so is to suggest that you have some power over me and you don’t. For any White person to even suggest that their thoughts can change how Black people think of themselves is the epitome of self-indulgence.

    While Whites in this country REALLY saw us as less than human (Three-Fifths Compromise, Jim Crow), many of my people after slavery built their own businesses, schools, raised up Godly families, took care of their communities and created positive legacies. What you and your people thought of us was irrelevant.

    I suggest you deal with the SPECIFIC people you know who have a problem with Black folks OFFLINE instead of parroting these generalizations. Just as it isn’t fair to suggest that all Black people are lazy, it is wrong to suggest that all White people think that of Blacks. White guilt does nothing to address the real issues that are having a negative impact on my people.

    So I think if we are going to have an honest discussion on what Whites actually think, let’s put away the generalizations and

  • “Just as it isn’t fair to suggest that all Black people are lazy, it is wrong to suggest that all White people think that of Blacks.”

    I think one of the points of the article is that the data *doesn’t* suggest that “all” the people of any racial category think one particular thing about people of another racial category.

  • Together, this means that nearly six-in-ten whites view themselves as superior to blacks

    No, they rated themselves more highly on a couple of traits. Interpretation of descriptive statistics is not your strong suit, is it?

    Blacks tend to score roughly a standard deviation lower on psychometric and aptitude and (assessing post-1954 cohorts), have persistently lower levels of educational attainment. Labor force participation rates are about the same, annual working hours for blacks are somewhat lower, and blacks make more use of unemployment compensation, SSI, and Social Security disability. You can make of these phenomena what you will (assessing it aetiologically or in terms of social ethics), but that’s the world your survey respondents live in. What’s your complaint, that ordinary working-class Americans do not exhibit the guises and poses common to college faculty?

  • Hats off to Obadiah Clarke! Thank you for your clear -sighted response.

    The article disturbed me for several reasons. First, I hate polls. They are invariably attempting to push the respondents toward a desired end so statistics produced are suspect. As Mark Twain said, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.”

    I elected to read through all 161 pages of the survey – self-torture! – and found the relevant questions on page 141. AFTER weird subjective queries on “emotional thermometers” regarding a wide range of groups. AFTER several sections on government programs which assist “blacks” when in fact, they presently are in place for all minorities. Skew much?

    The section also asked comparative questions about other minority groups. Why focus on just the blacks vs. whites? Seriously. Just to keep up with the prevailing media narrative? Why set a higher bar?

    Frankly, #ALLLIVESMATTER. That would really start a dialogue. There have been too many diatribes already.

  • Blacks are less intelligent, that’s a objective fact. Rejecting IQ test data because you don’t like the results isn’t a rational or scientific method. Anyone who doesn’t delude themselves is ” racist”? Anyone who believes in equal intelligence in lieu of realty and its evidence is a credulous fool.

  • I’ve met many blacks that were just as smart as a white person…. most blacks have low IQs due to the enviroment they were raised in.. you people like to call out other people also don’t include other variables.

  • Intelligence has both genetic and environmental components. A person’s genes limit his maximum height. Poor nutrition may cause him to not reach that full height potential. Similarly, while environment may limit intelligence, people from Africa, on average, have lower IQs than people from Europe or North Asia.

    The people with the highest IQs in the world are Ashkenazi Jews, with an average of about 115. Northern Asians (Japanese, Chinese, Koreans) have an average IQ of around 103-106, and Europeans about 100. Blacks in the US average about 85. While there are very smart blacks and some very un-smart whites, on average, blacks have lower IQs, and this is primarily due to genetic limitations. This is the unfortunate truth, and denying this fact leads to great harm.

    “Disparate impact” has causes other than racism. The Justice Department’s dishonest report on the Ferguson PD relies almost completely on a “disparate impact” analysis. If, say, black men are disproportionately killed in car accidents, is that due to racism, or something else?

    Blacks are continuously told that the only reason they have less wealth, or are imprisoned more, or otherwise disadvantaged vis a vis whites is due to slavery, Jim Crow, and racism. More courage is needed if we are to improve relations between the races.

  • The issue with using IQ test scores to make your argument that blacks are less intelligent is that IQ tests are not an accurate measure of intelligence. IQ tests measure a person’s knowledge. They measure learned skills. There will always be a bias in the test. If you look at the history of IQ tests you will see that they’ve historically been altered because the people who made the test didn’t like the people in the geographic area that were scoring best on their tests. IQ tests do not measure a person’s innate ability to learn. We have no such test capable of that feat. The ability to learn is intelligence not what you’ve learned.

  • I honestly think blacks on average are just as intelligent as whites on average. On the other hand in my 65 years of life I have been amazed at the high percentage of very smart Jewish, Chinese, Japanese, and Vietnamese Americans I have known and worked with, which makes me think either they are smarter than whites or blacks or have a cultural advantage to us.

    Does the following make me a racist or just a person speaking for objective observation?

  • Hahaha.. Funny article.. Thought it was about measuring job performance of different ethnicities in similar job environments.. Instead, as usual it’s demeaning and steered straight to the racism card. My teacher always said don’t use the stupid word.. Its wrong to call someone stupid. Didn’t yours tell u that?

  • Racism is fake evidence used to discredit another for gain.
    IQ is fake evidence used to discredit another for gain.
    Your science is fake evidence used to discredit another for gain.

    It spells fear of not being good enough. You won’t even know how to play the game of life. Just an illusion where every one let’s the big guy win. Like golf on business verses a trip to the moon. Turning people off to play elsewhere . The cheater in the board game.

    Every rumor has first been a rumor about you. Yet there is no competition. No one cares. You get the same info and it’s you against the world. Wake up.

    Also, Do you believe this distorted view about IQ, despite we haven’t heard about their dieducation and preparation for the test? No competition is needed nor any game, if only one side has armed and trained.

    By now, don’t you want to know what your made of? Stop bringing people down with scams. Hand them the same tools & practice you had, than play the game.

    Grow…

  • Life on earth will measure a person’s innate ability to learn. Man and their bias however, will not be judge of the lesson.

    Thank you, for balancing the scales.

  • You are completely wrong. If you are going to make a statement it is a good idea to learn just a little bit about the subject at hand. IQ test do exactly the opposite of what you say they do. I mean it is mind boggling to read such a ignorant post. IQ tests judge ones ability to recognize patterns and the time it takes to do so, a rubric cube for example. They have absolutely nothing to do with learned skills. If you happen to do some research before acting like you know what you are talking about to promote an agenda you will not find equations, grammar questions or basically anything that someone could teach you. The only thing that you would need to be able to do is read the test and even that obstacle could be overcome with the someone’s help. This is why a four year old can be classified as a genius. It doesn’t mean they have mastered calculus or know everything about world history, it means they have very good problem solving skills.

  • It is a bell curve like the author stated. There are many intelligent and dumb people of every race but when you look at the data overall it paints a very clear picture.

  • Why are so many white people like yourself so fast to degrade your race with scientific evidence staring in the face?

  • How could this be racist, i worked with lots of people coming from France, US, UK and Africa and I can tell you black people are the employeurs with the most “problems” from all. I know westen countries adopted a strong communist mentality, this is what left did to us, I admit K. Marcs and the jews are proud of this, but the answer to: “are blacks less inteligent that all races” is ussualy “NO” because in a communist country as US the answer is encouraged to do not offend or discriminatethe social classes because Karl Macrs infected us with socialist mentality: “Modern industry, by assigning as it does, an important part in the socially organized process of production, outside the domestic sphere, to women, to young persons, and to people of all colours, creates a new economic foundation for a higher form of the family and of the relations between the races… where the major groups exists for the process of production that fact is a pestiferous source of corruption, discrimination and slavery.” (Capital, Vol. I, Chapter 13).” This jew was thinking that all persons have the same inteligence and phsique capacity in order to create the “universal human” and the “major groups” are the aggressors so you should divide the sociaty in groups in order to reduce the authority of the majority, I could tell there are lots of differences betwin all races and each individu …. this jew thinked “you” are literally the same with all the 7Bil. humans living on earth. I hightly recomand you to see same statistics about the black people living in the west and to see what are the percentages of crimes, education, IQ level per race groups, poverty …. and you will stop kissing all those pro-communist asses. I’m grad there are white people spoking clear they oppinion about the “inteligence of each race”, you won’t see smart people having the same oppinion as you by claiming equal ethni intelligence. Black people loves to speak, the dumber they are the higher they speack, so I admit black people “never showed us the opposite” instead they complain almost everithing in the “evil white’s man world” but they can’t even do samething like that, look how the black countries look like political, ecenomic and social in the 21st century…. like one of my friend told me: “I’m realistic, any sistem in the world is better that the whites build it, all developed countries are the white ones, the developed countries wich are not white are those where the whites are involved”, if you whant to give me same opposite exemples as Turkey, Japain or S. Africa you should do same research in order to find out whites are also very involved there starting with colonism to the NATO and globalisation

  • Black-White IQ Distribution:

    For a graphical representation of the racial IQ gap Google: racial IQ bell curve

    Percentages below are from a cumulative percentages graph for readability:

    Blacks:
                     5% above 110 IQ
                     16% above 100 IQ
                     40% above 90 IQ
                     70% above 80 IQ
                     30% below 80 IQ
                     18% below 75 IQ
                     10% below 70 IQ

    Whites:
                     10% above 120 IQ
                     18% above 115 IQ
                     27% above 110 IQ
                     40% above 105 IQ
                     50% above 100 IQ
                     60% below 105 IQ
                     35% below 95 IQ
                     15% below 85 IQ

    So, the smartest 16% of Blacks are as intelligent as smartest 50% of Whites. 80% of Blacks score at or below the “low functioning” category.

    The least intelligent ten percent of Whites have IQs below 80; forty percent of Blacks have IQs that low.

    Only one Black in six is more intelligent than the average White; five Whites out of six are more intelligent than the average Black.

    These differences show in every test of general cognitive ability that anyone, of any race or nationality, has yet been able to devise. And they are reflected in countless everyday situations, “Life is an IQ test.”

    Further, only one-in-3.5 million (.00003%) African Blacks have an IQ of 140 or higher (genius level). But one-in-83 (1.2%) U.S. Whites is a genius. Therefore the per capita genius rate for U.S.-resident Whites is 41,000 times higher than it is for African Blacks.

    As the New York Times put it, “…the difference in I.Q. points between the groups is quite significant. It means that the top sixth of Blacks score only as well on I.Q. tests as do the top half of Whites.”

    Black females have higher IQs than Black males. Black female IQ is 2.4 points higher than Black male IQ. There are twice as many Black females as Black males with IQs over 120 and five times as many Black females as Black males with IQs over 140.

    Frey and Detterman (2003) analyzed the correlation of SAT scores with intelligence test scores. They found SAT scores to be highly correlated with general mental ability, or g (r=.82 in their sample).

    Abstract

    This research established the relationship between SAT and g, as well as the appropriateness of the SAT as a measure of g, and examined the SAT as a premorbid measure of intelligence. In Study 1, we used the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979. Measures of g were extracted from the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery and correlated with SAT scores of 917 participants. The resulting correlation was.82 (.86 corrected for nonlinearity). Study 2 investigated the correlation between revised and recentered SAT scores and scores on the Raven’s Advanced Progressive Matrices among 104 undergraduates. The resulting correlation was.483 (.72 corrected for restricted range). These studies indicate that the SAT is mainly a test of g. We provide equations for converting SAT scores to estimated IQs; such conversion could be useful for estimating premorbid IQ or conducting individual difference research with college students.

    New York Times, 2003:

    The SAT captures more than a narrow range of skills, important only in the first year or two of college. Large-scale meta-analyses by researchers at the University of Minnesota have found that SAT performance is as good of a predictor of overall college grade point average as it is of freshman grade point average, and Vanderbilt researchers David Lubinski and Camilla Benbow have documented that the SAT predicts life outcomes well beyond the college years, including income and occupational achievements.

    Furthermore, the SAT is largely a measure of general intelligence. Scores on the SAT correlate very highly with scores on standardized tests of intelligence, and like IQ scores, are stable across time and not easily increased through training, coaching or practice. SAT preparation courses appear to work, but the gains are small — on average, no more than about 20 points per section.

    Note that there is no closing of the large and persistent so-called “achievement gap”.

    In 2015 only 16% of Blacks scored 1550 or higher, the threshold the College Board calls the “college and career readiness” level.

    This racial achievement gap is so significant that colleges give a “race bonus” of 230 points to Blacks and penalize Asians by 50 points to try to keep it even.

    IQ correlates strongly to job performance, increased wealth, increased income, economic growth, livability in a U.S. state, cooperation, life expectancy and infant mortality.

    It is estimated that a minimum IQ of 90 is required just to maintain a technological society.

    The more White a society is the more successful (safe and prosperous) it is.

    The following intelligence scores came from work carried out earlier this decade by Richard Lynn, a British psychologist, and Tatu Vanhanen, a Finnish political scientist, who analysed IQ studies from 113 countries, and from subsequent work by Jelte Wicherts, a Dutch psychologist. Lynn and Vanhanen benchmarked their IQ results so that Britain is 100. America scores 98 on this scale, and the world average is 90. IQ`s are assumed to form a normal probability distribution (“bell curve”) with the standard deviation set at 15.

    National IQ correlates at 0.73 with living standard.

    Each 10 point increase in IQ generally doubles economic growth, assuming the country has a market economy:

  • Blacks have small brains

    Would you expect a population of small-brain people to have a higher, lower or equal IQ as compared to a population of large-brain people?

    Compared to Blacks, Whites’ brains:

         •   are 7% larger (1438cc versus 1343cc)
         •   are 100 grams heavier
         •   have deeper fissuration in the frontal and occipital regions
         •   have more complex convolutions and larger frontal lobes
         •   have more pyramidal neurons
         •   have 16% thicker supra-grandular layer
         •   react faster on mental chronometry tests
         •   have 600 million more neurons (each carries about 600 billion synapses, which each carry one bit of cortical information)

    Genes contribute to about 90% of the individual variation of brain size.

    Blacks are the only racial group with no DNA from the large-brained Neanderthals, and also the only race without the derived form of MCPH1 microcephalin called haplogroup D which produces increased brain volume.

    The correlation between brain size and IQ across 25 primate species is 0.77 (where 1.0 indicates that monozygotic twins have no variance in IQ and 0 indicates that their IQs are completely uncorrelated).

    Larger brains contain more neurons and synapses and process information faster. By adulthood, East Asians average 1 cubic inch more cranial capacity than Whites who average 5 cubic inches more than Blacks.

    The average White brain is 1438cc while the average Black brain is 1343cc, or 93% of the average White brain. The heritability of brain size is extremely strong at 0.90 and not one study to date has shown larger brain size for Blacks. The White and Asians brain also has a higher degree of fissuring (higher complexity) in the cerebral cortex of their brains, where abstract and conceptual thought is performed.

    There are also racial differences in brain shape, fissuration, number of pyramidal neurons and supra-grandular layer thickness. The depth of fissuration is related to superior intelligence and the brains of Whites have deeper fissures in the frontal and occipital regions. The supra-grandular layer of Blacks’ brains is 16% smaller than it is for Whites’ brains.

    Based on studies of brain weight at autopsy, endocranial volume of empty skulls, head size measurements by the U.S. military and NASA, and two dozen MRI volumetric studies Blacks’ brain size is 7% smaller than Whites’, and 8% smaller than Asians’. There is a correlation of brain size with IQ of about 0.40 and that these racial differences in brain size are present at birth. Genes contribute to about 90% of the individual variation of brain size.

    In addition to brain size are differences in brain shape, fissuration, number of pyramidal neurons and supra-grandular layer thickness. The depth of fissuration is related to superior intelligence and the brains of Whites have deeper fissures in the frontal and occipital regions. The supra-grandular layer of Blacks’ brains is 16% smaller than it is for Whites’ brains.

    The average human brain contains 86 billion neurons. Whites, on average, have 600 million more neurons than Blacks. Each neuron carries about 600 billion synapses, each of which carries, as a minimum, one bit of cortical information.

    Blacks are the only racial group with no DNA from the large-brained Neanderthals, and also the only race without the derived form of MCPH1 microcephalin called haplogroup D which produces increased brain volume.

    Even before birth, population group differences in average brain size are found from the ninth week of intrauterine life with White fetuses averaging larger brain cases and smaller faces Black fetuses, with the differences becoming more prominent over the course of fetal development.

    Weighing brains at autopsy, Whites averaged heavier brains than Blacks and had more complex convolutions and larger frontal lobes. Subsequent studies have found an average Black–White difference of about 100 g. Studies have found that the more White admixture (judged independently from skin color), the greater the average brain weight in Blacks. In a study of 1,261 American adults, Ho et al. (1980) found that 811 White Americans averaged 1,323 g and 450 Black Americans averaged 1,223 g. Since the Blacks and Whites were similar in body size, differences in body size cannot explain away the differences in brain weight.

    The same three-way pattern of race differences has been found using the simplest culture-free cognitive measures such as reaction time tasks, which 9- to 12-year-old children perform in less than 1 s. Lynn (2006) found that East Asian children from Hong Kong and Japan were faster than European children from Britain and Ireland, who in turn were faster than African children from South Africa. Using similar tasks, this pattern of racial differences was also found in California (Jensen, 1998; Rushton & Jensen, 2005). Within each group, the children with higher IQ scores perform faster those with lower scores.

    Race differences start in the womb. Blacks are born earlier and grow quicker than Whites and Asians. The three-way race pattern occurs in milestones such as sexual maturity, family stability, crime rates, and population growth.

    Black babies mature more quickly than White babies, while Asian babies mature more slowly. Black babies in a sitting position are more able to keep their heads up and backs straight from the start. White babies often need six to eight weeks to do these things. It is unlikely that social factors could produce these differences. A basic law of biology shows that longer infancy is related to greater brain growth.

    Black babies spend the least time in the womb. In America, 51% of Black children have been born by week 39 of pregnancy compared with 33% of White children. In Europe, Black babies of even professional mothers are born earlier than White babies.

    Black children sit, crawl, walk, and put on their own clothes earlier than Whites or Asians. The findings are measured by such tests as Bayley’s Scales of Mental and Motor Development and the Cambridge Neonatal Scales.

    Asian children, on the other hand, mature more slowly than do White children. Asian children often do not walk until 13 months. Walking starts at 12 months for white children and 11 months for Black children.

    Meta-analysis of associations between human brain volume and intelligence differences

    AUTHORS: Pietschnig, Penke, Wicherts, Zeiler, Voracek

    ABSTRACT: “By means of a systematic review of published studies and unpublished results obtained by personal communications with researchers, we identified 88 studies examining effect sizes of 148 healthy and clinical mixed-sex samples. Our results showed significant positive associations of brain volume and IQ.”

    Brain mass differences between racial groups in the US

    Jensen (1998) summarizes the brain mass findings from the Case-Western Reserve (1980) study (N= 811 W, 450 B). An age matched and height adjusted B-W differences of ~100g (~.78SD) was found, which is commensurate with the findings of Bean (1906), Mall (1909), Pearl (1934), and Vint (1934) as described in Rushton and Ankney (2009). Holloway (2002) found a B-W difference of 63 grams (N = 1,391 W; 615 Black). Similar findings have been found based in imaging studies (see 5). In their study, Isamah, et al. (2010) found that African Americans have 1 SD less total cerebrum volume than European Americans.

    Contrary to most purely environmental theories, racial differences in brain size show up early in life. Data from the U.S. National Collaborative Perinatal Project on 19,000 Black children and 17,000 White children showed that Black children had a smaller head perimeter at birth and, although Black children were born shorter in stature and lighter in weight than White children, by age 7 ‘catch-up growth’ led Black children to be larger in body size than White children. However, Blacks remained smaller in head perimeter (Broman et al., 1987). Further, head perimeter at birth, 1 year, 4 years, and 7 years correlated with IQ scores at age 7 in both Black and White children (r = 0.13 to 0.24).

    Brain Size Differences. Studies using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) find a correlation of brain size with IQ of about 0.40. Larger brains contain more neurons and synapses and process information faster. Race differences in brain size are present at birth. By adulthood, East Asians average 1 cubic inch more cranial capacity than Whites who average 5 cubic inches more than Blacks.

    “Neither the existence nor the size of race differences in IQ are a matter of dispute, only their cause,” write the authors. The Black-White difference has been found consistently from the time of the massive World War I Army testing of 90 years ago to a massive study of over 6 million corporate, military, and higher-education test-takers in 2001.

    “Race differences show up by 3 years of age, even after matching on maternal education and other variables,” said Rushton. “Therefore they cannot be due to poor education since this has not yet begun to exert an effect. That’s why Jensen and I looked at the genetic hypothesis in detail. We examined 10 categories of evidence.”

    1. The Worldwide Pattern of IQ Scores; East Asians average higher on IQ tests than Whites, both in the U. S. and in Asia, even though IQ tests were developed for use in the Euro-American culture. Around the world, the average IQ for East Asians centers around 106; for Whites, about 100; and for Blacks about 85 in the U.S. and 70 in sub-Saharan Africa.

    2. Race Differences are Most Pronounced on Tests that Best Measure the General Intelligence Factor (g); Black-White differences, for example, are larger on the Backward Digit Span test than on the less g loaded Forward Digit Span test.

    3. The Gene-Environment Architecture of IQ is the Same in all Races, and Race Differences are Most Pronounced on More Heritable Abilities; Studies of Black, White, and East Asian twins, for example, show the heritability of IQ is 50% or higher in all races.

    4. Brain Size Differences; Studies using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) find a correlation of brain size with IQ of about 0.40. Larger brains contain more neurons and synapses and process information faster. Race differences in brain size are present at birth. By adulthood, East Asians average 1 cubic inch more cranial capacity than Whites who average 5 cubic inches more than Blacks.

    5. Trans-Racial Adoption Studies; Race differences in IQ remain following adoption by White middle class parents. East Asians grow to average higher IQs than Whites while Blacks score lower. The Minnesota Trans-Racial Adoption Study followed children to age 17 and found race differences were even greater than at age 7: White children, 106; Mixed-Race children, 99; and Black children, 89.

    6. Racial Admixture Studies; Black children with lighter skin, for example, average higher IQ scores. In South Africa, the IQ of the mixed-race “Colored” population averages 85, intermediate to the African 70 and White 100.

    According to a new study, just published in the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) newsroom, scientists have definitively found the genes which control brain size and intelligence.

    Dozens of studies have found race differences in brain size, whether measured by MRI, endocranial volume, brain weight at autopsy or external head size (with or without corrections for body size).

    Most were carried out on the three major races of East Asians, Europeans, and Africans. Averaging all the data, the following figures have emerged: Brain size average for East Asians = 1364cm; Whites = 1347cm; and Blacks = 1267cm.

    The overall mean for East Asians was 17cm more than for Whites and 97cm more than for Blacks.

    Since every cubic centimeter of brain tissue contains millions of brain cells and billions of synapses, the race differences in brain size help to explain the race differences in IQ.

    The latest overview, billed as the “world’s largest brain study to date,” saw a team of more than 200 scientists from 100 institutions worldwide collaborate to map the human genes that boost or sabotage the brain’s resistance to a variety of mental illnesses and Alzheimer’s disease.

    Additionally, the study (also published in the journal Nature Genetics), found new genes which control “differences in brain size and intelligence.”

    “We searched for two things in this study,” said senior author Paul Thompson, professor of neurology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and a member of the UCLA Laboratory of Neuro Imaging.

    “We hunted for genes that increase your risk for a single disease that your children can inherit. We also looked for factors that cause tissue atrophy and reduce brain size, which is a biological marker for disorders like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.”

    Three years ago, Thompson’s lab partnered with geneticists Nick Martin and Margaret Wright at the Queensland Institute for Medical Research in Brisbane, Australia, and with geneticist Barbara Franke of Radboud University Nijmegen Medical Centre in the Netherlands.

    The four investigators recruited brain-imaging labs around the world to pool their brain scans and genomic data, and Project ENIGMA (Enhancing Neuro Imaging Genetics through Meta-Analysis) was born.

    “Our individual centers couldn’t review enough brain scans to obtain definitive results,” said Thompson, who is also a professor of psychiatry at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA.

    “By sharing our data with Project ENIGMA, we created a sample large enough to reveal clear patterns in genetic variation and show how these changes physically alter the brain.”

    Recent reviews (by Nisbett et al. (2012b) and Mackintosh (2011)) confirm current data does show an average difference in brain size and head-circumference between American Blacks and Whites.

    Brain size is found to have a correlation of about .35 with intelligence and cites studies showing that genes may account for as much as 90% of individual variation in brain size, concluding that race differences in average brain size could be an important argument for genetic contribution to racial IQ gaps.

    On the outside, there’s not a lot of difference between Black heads and White ones. There is a slight difference, however, with Whites having the larger heads. But the big difference is in the size of the brain. Blacks have thicker skulls, which means that a higher percentage of their head is bone instead of brain.

    Blacks are the only race without the derived form of MCPH1 microcephalin called haplogroup D which appeared about 37,000 years ago and is associated with increased brain volume.

    Empirical data obtained from brain weight at autopsy, endocranial volume of empty skulls, head size measurements by the U.S. military and NASA, and two dozen MRI volumetric studies have shown that brain volumes average 1427 cubic centimeters for Whites, but only 1361 cubic centimeters for Blacks.

    In weight measurements, the brains of African Blacks were found to weigh an average of 1157 grams, whereas those of pure Whites weighed an average of 1323 grams. The brains of US-resident Blacks, who have a bit of White mixture in their genetic makeup, average 1223 grams in weight.

    That 100-gram weight difference, between White Americans and US-resident Blacks, corresponds to an approximate 600 million neuron advantage for Whites. In 600 million neurons, there are about 600 billion synapses, each of which carries, as a minimum, one bit of cortical information.

    Also, Whites have a larger genus to splenium ratio (front to back part of corpus callosum), which indicates that Whites probably have more activity in the frontal lobes which are thought to be the seat of intelligence. One study found that White cerebrums exhibited 14% more sulsification, or fissuring, as compared with those of Blacks. So, not only are White brains larger, they are also significantly more complex.

    Blacks also have considerably smaller frontal lobes. Frontal lobes are responsible for planning complex cognitive behavior, personality expression, decision making and moderating social behavior.

    This is a genetic trait because even malnourished Asians from poor countries have a larger brain on average than well fed blacks from western countries.

  • Name a single contribution from sub-Saharan Africans to the world.

    Are societies more safe and prosperous if they are more white, or more Black?

  • You’re kidding, right? There was a whole movie that came out dedicated to the black women who worked at NASA. And you’re really going to bring up how safe societies are? What race is known to have gone on shooting sprees on numerous occasions?

  • “There was a whole movie that came out dedicated to the black women who worked at NASA.”

    None of those women are Black; they are all mixed. That’s why I specifically asked for contributions “…from sub-Saharan Africans to the world.” You replied with some American “Blacks”. But compare IQs between American Blacks who average 28% White admixture (IQ 85) to African Blacks (IQ 67).

    That’s because African Blacks were never hybridized with large-brain Neanderthals like modern man is. Blacks were left behind and never created a civilization.

    Just the fact that you can point to a group here or a group there makes my point about how few they are. Look up racial IQ bell curves to see it represented.
    That’s why Blacks can only achieve in White societies; because Blacks are so intellectually-inferior that there are not enough smart ones to even create the infrastructure to allow the intellectual elite to achieve.

    Note that there is no closing of the large and persistent so-called “achievement gap”.

    In the 20 year period from 1994-2014 the Black-White difference increased on both the verbal and math SATs. On the reading test, it rose from .91 to .96 standard deviations. On the math test, it rose from .95 to 1.03 standard deviations.

    In 2015 only 16% of Blacks scored 1550 or higher, the threshold the College Board calls the “college and career readiness” level.

    This racial achievement gap is so significant that colleges give a “race bonus” of 230 points to Blacks and penalize Asians by 50 points to try to keep it even.

    Frey and Detterman (2003) analyzed the correlation of SAT scores with intelligence test scores. They found SAT scores to be highly correlated with general mental ability, or g (r=.82 in their sample).

    Abstract

    This research established the relationship between SAT and g, as well as the appropriateness of the SAT as a measure of g, and examined the SAT as a premorbid measure of intelligence. In Study 1, we used the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979. Measures of g were extracted from the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery and correlated with SAT scores of 917 participants. The resulting correlation was.82 (.86 corrected for nonlinearity). Study 2 investigated the correlation between revised and recentered SAT scores and scores on the Raven’s Advanced Progressive Matrices among 104 undergraduates. The resulting correlation was.483 (.72 corrected for restricted range). These studies indicate that the SAT is mainly a test of g. We provide equations for converting SAT scores to estimated IQs; such conversion could be useful for estimating premorbid IQ or conducting individual difference research with college students.

    New York Times, 2003:

    The SAT captures more than a narrow range of skills, important only in the first year or two of college. Large-scale meta-analyses by researchers at the University of Minnesota have found that SAT performance is as good of a predictor of overall college grade point average as it is of freshman grade point average, and Vanderbilt researchers David Lubinski and Camilla Benbow have documented that the SAT predicts life outcomes well beyond the college years, including income and occupational achievements.

    Furthermore, the SAT is largely a measure of general intelligence. Scores on the SAT correlate very highly with scores on standardized tests of intelligence, and like IQ scores, are stable across time and not easily increased through training, coaching or practice. SAT preparation courses appear to work, but the gains are small — on average, no more than about 20 points per section.

  • Black-White IQ Distribution:

    For a graphical representation of the racial IQ gap Google: racial IQ bell curve

    Percentages below are from a cumulative percentages graph for readability:

    Blacks:
                     5% above 110 IQ
                     16% above 100 IQ
                     40% above 90 IQ
                     70% above 80 IQ
                     30% below 80 IQ
                     18% below 75 IQ
                     10% below 70 IQ

    Whites:
                     10% above 120 IQ
                     18% above 115 IQ
                     27% above 110 IQ
                     40% above 105 IQ
                     50% above 100 IQ
                     60% below 105 IQ
                     35% below 95 IQ
                     15% below 85 IQ

    So, the smartest 16% of Blacks are as intelligent as smartest 50% of Whites. 80% of Blacks score at or below the “low functioning” category.

    The least intelligent ten percent of Whites have IQs below 80; forty percent of Blacks have IQs that low.

    Only one Black in six is more intelligent than the average White; five Whites out of six are more intelligent than the average Black.

    These differences show in every test of general cognitive ability that anyone, of any race or nationality, has yet been able to devise. And they are reflected in countless everyday situations, “Life is an IQ test.”

    Further, only one-in-3.5 million (.00003%) African Blacks have an IQ of 140 or higher (genius level). But one-in-83 (1.2%) U.S. Whites is a genius. Therefore the per capita genius rate for U.S.-resident Whites is 41,000 times higher than it is for African Blacks.

    As the New York Times put it, “…the difference in I.Q. points between the groups is quite significant. It means that the top sixth of Blacks score only as well on I.Q. tests as do the top half of Whites.”

    Black females have higher IQs than Black males. Black female IQ is 2.4 points higher than Black male IQ. There are twice as many Black females as Black males with IQs over 120 and five times as many Black females as Black males with IQs over 140.

  • “What race is known to have gone on shooting sprees on numerous occasions?”

    Look up the real stats, not socially-acceptable news scoured to protect snowflakes.

    Mass and Serial Killers

    Mass Killers:

    There have been 70 mass shooters since 1982.

    45 by whites, 11 by blacks, 6 by Asians, 4 by Latinos, 3 by Native American.

    Per capita:

    Whites make up 77.7% of the populations and 64% of the shootings -13.7
    Latinos make up 17.1% of the populations and 5.7% of the shootings -11.4
    Blacks make up 13.2% of the populations and 15% of the shootings +1.8
    Asians make up 5.3% of the populations and 8.5% of the shootings +3.2
    Native Americans make up 1.2% of the populations and 4% of the shootings +2.8

    Serial Killers:

    According to the FBI 90 percent of serial killers are male, and 46 percent of those are white.

    Black serial killers have comprised over half of documented serial killers since the dawn of the 21st century at 56 percent, making up a total of 40 percent in years dating back to 1900.

    As Blacks are only 13% of the U.S. population they are heavily over-represented as serial killers.

    Criminal profiler Pat Brown says serial killers are usually reported as white because the media typically focuses on “All-American” white and pretty female victims who were the targets of white male offenders, that crimes among minority offenders in urban communities, where crime rates are higher, are under-investigated, and that minority serial killers likely exist at the same ratios as white serial killers for the population. She believes that the myth that serial killers are always white might have become “truth” in some research fields due to the over-reporting of white serial killers in the media.

    According to some sources, the percentage of serial killers who are African American is estimated to be between 13 and 22 percent. Another study has shown that 16 percent of serial killers are African American, what author Maurice Godwin describes as a “sizeable portion”. However, the 2013 Radford/FGCU Serial Killer Database annual statistics show, for the decades 1900–2010, that the percentage of African American serial killers is 40.7%. Popular racial stereotypes about the lower intelligence of African-Americans, and the stereotype that serial killers are white males with “bodies stacked up in the basement and strewn all over the countryside” may explain the media focus on serial killers that are white and the failure to adequately report on those that are black.

    Child Molesters:

    Myth: Whites Are More Likely to be Pedophiles and Child Molesters

    There is a long-standing myth that Whites are more likely to molest children than any other race. This goes back to some stereotype of the creepy, nerdy, weirdo White guy who can’t get laid so he molests kids.

    % of total child abusers:

    White 51%
    African American 25%
    Hispanic 15%
    American Indian/Alaska Natives 2%
    Asian/Pacific Islanders 1%

    Relative to their population, likelihood of child abuse compared to background population rate:
    American Indian +100%
    Blacks +92%
    Hispanics no difference
    Whites -35%
    Asian -67%

    ~~~~~

    FBI Table 43 (2013)

    Blacks are 13 percent of the population and commit 32.5% of all crimes against family and children. That is 2.5 times their population.

    Whites are 66 percent of the population and commit 65% of all crimes against family and children. That is 1 times their population.

    Therefore, a Black is 2.5 times more likely to be a pedophile than a White.

  • Why couldn’t Blacks ever create a civilization?

    When Whites discovered Blacks just 400 years ago they were still living in the Stone Age.

  • Wow, a whole one person. I bet she got more than a few movies. Maybe several books and documentaries, too.

  • ROB- KEEP TELLING YOURSELF THAT YOU IGNORANT PIECE OF TRASH PRICKKK! OH, BY THE WAY, WHITES HAVE BEEN COMPARED TO “DEVILS” FOR A REASON, Hmmm, MAYBE ITS BECAUSE YOUR ANCESTORS HAVE HUNG BLACKS BECAUSE OF THEIR RACE AND HAD YOU OFFSPRING[S OBSERVED HANGINGS AT YOUR KKK LYNCHINGS OR SNATCHED AND CUT OUT BABIES FROM PREGNANT MOTHERS AND FED THEIR BLACK BABIES TO CROCODILES
    DENY IT, THAT’S WHAT LIARS, TYRANTS AND RACISTS DO! YOU ARE AN “OFFSPRING OF HITLER.”DUMB-ASS! TAKE YOUR PHONY RACIST PROPAGANDA AND STICK IT UP YOUR HITLER;TRUMP LOVIN’ ASS!

  • Rob-the Bigot- You have some serious mental problems. You obviously want all Blacks to disappear. Solution, go swing on the Moon because they’re not going anywhere!

  • Rob-Your mission, to spew “HATRED” all over the place. Problem, it seems to me your trying to convince yourself Blacks are inferior to your kind. Maybe you’re just intimidated by the Black man. Hell they’re broad minded, better at Sports, physically and sexually endowed and they take your white women. No wonder you’re a Hater. You’re the one with the small Brain, stupid. Maybe you should stop listening what your fellow KKK brothers are teaching your stupid dumb racist Ass at these lynchings!

  • Why does every Blacks nation have to rely on Whites just to feed themselves?

    Do you have any evidence of racial intellectual parity?

    Do you dispute that Blacks have small, primitive brains?

  • Holy shit what the hell is wrong with rob? You know you have a mental problem when you start bringing up and asking what has a certain race a people done and you haven’t contributed a single thing yourself but take credit for what people that are from your race have done and think that contributes. Lol

  • This discussion thread demonstrates why the “race issue” in our society is in large part intractable.
    Rob’s citation of studies and statistics is disturbing and unacceptable to those who believe in anecdotal evidence, rather than the scientific method.
    The facts he quotes are well established and accepted by Social Scientists and even educators. However, they are taboo in any public or administrative conversation, due to their inflammatory nature.
    If we have even a snowball’s chance in hell to begin to address the “race issue” in our society, we must start with the facts, unpleasant as they are.
    Wasting billions of tax dollars on Head Start, universal pre-school, and other boondoggles ( which have proven to have been ineffectual) must stop, and we must find a way to maximize individuals’ potential, within the realistic and immutable limitations imposed by inherited and environmental factors which combine to create their IQ. A person, of whatever race, with an IQ of 85 or less is NOT going to Harvard or MIT. Deal with it.

  • Yeah it is depending on where you work and the level of education obtained by either group and whites and blacks

  • Sub Saharan Africans society is on the decline. The golden age of Africa was well beyond the renaissance age. Socialization was taken from Africans and borrowed as well. Even the slaves in America lent their knowledge and even how to treat and enslave people to the Europeans who eventually enslaved them.

  • Blacks are only responding to the way they have been treated you treat someone like an animal they will act that way. Simple psychology.

  • Well you failed the IQ test because your supposedly insightful and unique commentary was merely an act of brazen plagiarism.

  • It is misleading to imply that African Americans with IQs of 85 or less are going to MIT or Harvard.

  • Regarding brain size, I found this on Wiki:
    Critics of the hereditarian position also note that the difference in mean brain size between blacks and whites is smaller than 1 standard deviation, and is insufficient to explain the vast majority of the black-white IQ gap.[26]

  • Obviously, you reject all of the scientific studies that prove Rob assertions. All you have is insults, not facts or statistics or scientific studies. That’s weak.

  • He wasn’t referring to himself as an individual, he was asking the question with regard to the racial group as a whole. As well, how the hell do you know that Rob hasn’t contributed anything? You know you have a mental problem when you deny reality based upon statistics, scientific studies and simple observation. LOL!!!!!!

  • Dude, you’ve mentioned way more scientific facts and stats than liberals and Blacks can comprehend. I suppose I can understand why Blacks don’t want to accept this reality, but there is no excuse for White liberals who should have the mental capacity to assess reality in an unbiased way.

    Honestly, I do wish we were all on an equal playing field. IMO, the hundreds of Black ghettos in the U.S. are stark examples of how most Blacks do not have the capacity to thrive in a First World civilization.

    IF Blacks could clean up one, just one ghetto and transform it into a thriving Black community without Whitey’s help, just one, that would give me a glimmer of hope that maybe all of this talk of disparity between the races in intelligence is hokum. I’m still waiting.
