Racial differences in intelligence

This is a good summary of the available information on the subject, with a particularly interesting chart on transracial adoptions. The author does a good job of describing how he overcame his early brainwashing.

And does he manage to draw any useful conclusions?

Absolutely: it's nature not nurture. The transracial adoption studies are very telling.

Wow..you really keep it real..never heard of a black guy admitting that blacks are intellectually inferior..about time

Actually, I figured you were joking, I'm half WASP and half Japanese. In person, I look sort of vaguely ethnic, like some kind of Mediterranean or Hispanic, but not black.

That's my picture at the side of the blog, the one that's sort of in shadow. Guess I should get a clearer picture.

I'm a self-hating halfbreed maybe, but I'm definitely half-Scottish/English/Irish/Welsh, and half-Japanese.

When I lived in NYC, Hispanics would say "Hola" to me on the street though.
