Not to mention, this is all assuming that all human being on earth are of equal intelligence. I think everyone should recognize that as a politically correct assumption and not of the truth.

Forgive me for being obtuse, but: Are you saying that American Blacks generally suffer from a more or less permanent (i.e., genetic) intelligence deficit?

If so, then how do you explain such splendid American thinkers as Frederick Douglas; George Washington Carver; the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr,; Associate Justice Clarence Thomas; Thomas Sowell; Walter Williams; Herman Cain; Congressman Allen West; the list goes ON....

I REFUSE the be a "racist," in acknowledging the amazing and irreplaceable achievements of men of this intellectual caliber, and their invaluable contributions to the American self-understanding.

To me, they are all "indispensable public men." I give thanks to God that they exist, or existed.

Don't know.  Statistically, blacks do poorer academically than whitey in general.  It's hard to tell if it's genetic or cultural really.  We would have to delve into the statistics of IQ according to race.  I doubt if you wanna go there, and I'm not really interested in going there.  I'm more interested in the political bent of groups rather than their IQ.   However, it does seem to me the stupider someone is the more likely they are to vote socialist/democrat.

I'm not a subscriber to white guilt syndrome.  And I'm not susceptible to race baiting.  That crapola don't work on me.  Maybe you'll have better luck on someone else.~

Allan Keys is another good one.  Love those guys.  Allen West and Thomas Sowell are my heroes.  I feel like putting portraits of them up in my home.  I wish there were many MANY more of these geniuses in the black community.  Sadly, there are not.

Acknowledging truth is not racist.  You think it's racist because you're a subscriber to political correctness.  Truth is simply truth.  Not all humans are of equal intelligence.  That's a fact.  However, those individuals who are less intelligent may have strengths in other areas (i.e., creativity, socialization) that more intelligent folks may not have.  Who knows.

Reverend Martin Luther King    Ooops.  That one slipped by me.  Srike that one.  Not crazy about that guy.
