    Your IQ is obviously not very high, otherwise you'd realize that knowing that there are intelligence differences between people does not automatically imply that IQ tests measure those differences well.

    Anyway, how does IQ correlate with holding racist beliefs?

    Hmmmm.....one group goes to the moon while another hasn't even invented a written language or the ability to count past 20 ( number of toes and fingers).....hmmmmmmm.

    That doesn't make any sense or mean anything, typical of your thought processes.

    This thread is solid evidence that not everybody is equally intelligent.

    How much did you have on your IQ test, Sam? We might have another piece of evidence regarding IQ tests right here.

    Im guessing you must have frequently skipped your history lessons in school when you were a kid, nothing else explains such a lack of familiarity with well-known historical facts regarding the oppression of ethnic minorities in your country and the consequences thereof.

    curiously these are the same qualities which can be found in the OP, it is after all devoid of any meaning.

    Uh-huh, but what explains the consequences of those minorities when left alone in their own environement?

    They weren't "oppressed" in Africa, they were in command, but somehow they fell so far behind they got squished by a handfull of colonists.

    Musta been guns germs and steal or some other nonsense.

    Effectively, then, you equate intelligence with proficiency in killing. You must be a virus worshipper.
