Yes, the benefits are that they live with no motor accidents, no burns, no disasters at sea, and no art critics!Circle5 wrote: ↑Wed Apr 11, 2018 10:56 pm
This is such a big problem that it shapes the whole universe of a population. It is not some small insignificant fact that one can just ignore or get rid of with some "IQ is relative, it doesn't measure anything important" line. The life of a population who has not discovered the wheel or, in some cases, not even fire, is a life much different from a population that even has big and complicated ships, complicated art, etc.
And what exactly has skin color to do with race ? Ethiopians, somalians and eritreans are as black as possible, yet they are caucasian as a race. Skin color has to do with the climate of the area. Race has to do with isolation of a specific population. Ethipians, somalians, greeks, spanish, arabs descend from the same group that left caucasus region and have always been connected with them. They have not been isolated by a huge desert for thousands of years.LG2V wrote: ↑Wed Apr 11, 2018 11:19 pm Cheddar Man, the anthropological "father" of the British who lived 10,000 years ago, for example, was Black. There exists Mediterranean artwork that depicts and describes Black people on the European continent even 3-5,000 years ago; not to mention the abundance of Blacks in Egypt, Phoenecia, and Mesopotamia. There's even research to suggest that Black people have culturally existed for quite some time in East and Southeast Asia. Not to mention that there are plenty of people on the Indian subcontinent with skin as pigmented as mine, whose "non-blackness" is someone arbitrary.
The average IQ in India is 85 (similar to american black), yet the IQ of indian immigrants to USA is 114.An interesting refutation to the genetic argument is that African immigrants tend to have educational attainments suggestive of higher IQs than both American Blacks and American Whites. However, the primary genetic difference between American Blacks and African immigrants is that American Blacks have a higher White admixture. Why is this? I believe that the difference isn't to do with any sort of African "brain-drain", or other form of selective genetics. Rather, it's because these people can view majority non-Black cultures as "foreign", and retreat to an intellectual "native space" with its own validated norms and language. They can also benefit from the higher levels of wealth, nutrition, and access to education that Western countries enjoy.
But since:Circle5 wrote:Aboriginal australians did not discover the wheel and some did not know how to make fire. Best city the sub-saharan africans built was the so called "Great Zimbabwe". All this while the egyptians or nubians (ethiopians) had flourishing empires and cities while living in the same climate.
Then obviously there're various other factors that create this 29-point jump that has absolutely nothing to do with race.Circle5 wrote:The average IQ in India is 85 (similar to american black), yet the IQ of Indian immigrants to USA is 114.

Of course... it's "skilled migration".
