    That's 910 combined reading and math.
    She was a 3.8 GPA in high school.
    How is this possible?

    Easy:

    She works very hard and does all the extra credit assignments to improve her grade. She takes easy classes and easy teachers. She memorizes very well for short term information but nothing sticks in long term memory.

    This kind of stuff is really quite common.

    900 combined score on SAT is borderline retarded but she was the class valedictorian?

    What's the rest of that school look like?

    A great many school districts across the US have few people who bother taking the SAT.

    In Detroit, only about 25% of those who enter the ninth grade complete the twelth.

    There is a controversial and radical theory that claims that growing up in poverty, surrounded by crime and violence, tends to reduce academic performance.

    Yes the same old excuse.
    It's someone else's fault the black folks suck. It's not their fault. it's whitey's fault. Negroes are perfect, nothing is wrong with them, it's the big bad evil white race that's to blame for everything.

    How do black kids from rich families perform in school?

    Pretty much the same, a bit better if they have tutors and a lot better with a white parent in their background.

    Hahaha yes point out Maurice Ashley....that disproves the general rule.
    Oh, wait...no it doesn't.
    And MLK was a plagiarist, that's how he got his doctorate.
    Old news.
    Pointing out a smart negro that goes against the grain proves nothing.
    Ever study statistics?
    Take a million negroes and get back to me on where they fall on the bell Curve.

    Or keep going with the libtard media line that white people are evil and everything is their fault, no other race has problems, they are PERFECT. Whites are bad, all others are good.

    According to the link I read, 900 SAT puts her at about an IQ of 100.

    They often have troubles primarily due to peer pressure. Not wishing to appear to be "acting white", they act out defiantly.

    The peculiar thing is perhaps that Krod Mandoon is attempting to use academic performance to support his white supremacist ideology, although people of East Asian ancestry in the US tend to perform a bit better than whites. I wonder why he is not arguing that East Asians are the master race?

    you are trying to prove logically that a racist fuk's comments on race are idiotic.
