It's racist to think that one race may be better off than the others... or one would lag significantly behind?

You're a goddamned moron.

I never said it's racist.

I said it's intellectually idiotic.

I'll give your book a shot...

Also, fyi... I have firsthand experience witnessing the power of genetics.

My sister has three daughters and one of them is from one guy and the other two are from another... everyone is white by the way, for context... the father of the one is significantly, miles ahead smarter than the other father... guess which kid is the smartest by a mile despite my sister investing fully in all three of them? Take a wild guess! lol...

Genetics matter people. A lot.

I knew a woman who was a judge in Iran.

One son is physicist at Cal Tech and another is some type of heart surgeon at Stanford.

She could pass a mortgage license test even though she's not very fluent in English but struggled with a lot of basic computer functions related to her job a teen could whiz through.

This is not as simple of an argument as you're trying to make it.

All seem smarter than others their age but much of that is just being eloquent and speaking clearly. They speak like adults. Just as I did. I never let anyone do baby talk to them. For the most part kids become what you shake them to be. I don't know if they are naturally more intelligent than most just like I don't know that I am. I know people seem to think I'm intelligent but a lot of that is because they aren't used to hearing a black man enunciate.

I think I'm smarter than most and I think the kids are but I have no way to be sure. I've lost faith in IQ tests as I've aged. The person I was raised to be would give his all on such a test. I would be upset to do poorly on it and try my best. If I'm the same person but raised in a fishing village in Cameroon I don't think I give a shit. I'd probably be worse on an IQ test just off a lack of applying myself.

When they wanted to see where I was in comparison to the public school system when they were thinking of pulling me out of private school I really cared how I did on tests they gave me. They wanted to bump me from the fourth grade to the 11th because I was "gifted". But am I? Or did I spend years in a small classroom of eight people being fawned over by a genius from Italy who seemed to know everything and love sharing it with kids?

I learned more from her before I was 10 than I learned in public school the rest of my life. Looking back it really opened my eyes. I got a Headstart that had nothing to do with my potential. So I'm driven to give everybody in my sphere of influence a Headstart too.

Ok let me not compare them to you...

Compare them to each other, do they all seem of equal intelligence? That's my point.

Now you're comparing IQ to developed skills and that makes no sense whatsoever.

It's also easier to learn most things when you're younger by the way...

Then why are you so abusive toward people with poor genetics?

These people couldn't build a battery without google and they were all taught how in middle school.

I came up in private schools full of idiots cheating off me. The right upbringing makes average exceptional and an idiot into average.

I have no reason to believe my kids have more latent potential than my grandfather. But I didn't pull them out of school at 8 to pick beans and we were discussing the concept of space/time when they were 6 looking at stars. So....they probably make it a little further than he did....

I give a shit about their future. How this world will view them on first impression. My great grandfather was born a slave and raised a sharecropper. He taught his son what he knew. I teach mine what I know. Progress is made.

So kblaze if you believe theres a reason behind everything why do you hate on people like stalker for their lack of proper decision making? Is there not a reason his mind developed the way it did?

Anyone want to post an IQ test we can all take?

We will take it and then see if success correlates with IQ.

Because in your case you've got the mental capability and capacity and your piss poor attitude is your biggest problem and you refuse to even acknowledge the possibility.

All you need to know is that unless you want to become a theoretical physicist, your IQ is not limiting you from doing anything.
Unless you’re retarded.

My father died and later that year, a neighbor stuck his p enis in my ass and mouth on countless occasions.

My mother had multiple boyfriends we lived with that were abusive.

My mother is an alcoholic and chain smoker and she'll go into convulsions without alcohol.

I was then riddled with the worst acne imaginable that completely destroyed my ability to socialize.

I never had a chance.

Yeah, and things like access to clean water and adequate nutrition affect brain development..

The possibility of what?

I'm in school.
I'm a very attentive and caring dad.
I keep my house clean.
I don't drink or smoke.
I don't even think I cuss out loud.

I'm ugly as hell and a loser, but that's mainly due to the world shunning me.

It's proven that average to good looking people are treated far better in society and given more opportunities.

No one denies you had a tough path but right now you're just being a pathetic little bitch and that's all by choice, right here right now, 10-6-17 7:50 PM EST.
