there is no factor, economic political or otherwise, that more closely correlates to intelligence than race.

And why can't we just test intelligence and conscientiousness directly?

Show me an experiment that makes the case... I see a correlation of Race with political ideology. It may be that, well not to sound like those guys on trading places, but if we could somehow get a few minorities to be raised by whites or asians in a remote area where they cannot socialize with others of their race who might be of a degenerate culture then maybe they will perform better? Maybe as good as those around them who are not minorities?

also, poor whites do better on IQ tests than affluent blacks.

Come on, think back to when you were a little fella at school. There were the kids who just got it and there were the kids who had no bloody hope. No amount of diet or nurture could explain why some of those cogs spun faster than others. There are 6 year olds eating paste and there are 6 year olds playing symphonies on the piano and reciting Latin proverbs. No amount of good parenting could have turned the former into the latter. There are kids from poor families who are geniuses, and kids from healthy, nurturing, well-off families who are slow.

There's just no way that 'natural intelligence' is not largely genetic. No way. That's not to say that the environment doesn't play an enormous factor, as it most certainly does, but once those Whites in the remote area get the little niglet there's almost nothing they can do for his raw intelligence, all they can do is instill good study habits, demeanor, and give him opportunities/guidance to make the most of what he's got.

nope. never been the case in a single study except one very poorly sampled study using black children of german women and american army men from ww2. but that study is very poorly sampled as MANY blacks were rejected from military service for their lack of ability, about 30% vs like 6% of whites, and so those babies are produce from, at the very least the top 70% of blacks in this country. adding to that the fact that those babies were somewhere between 60% and 80% white and the fact that their IQs were tested during early adolescense and IQ is more reliably tested after the teen years when its correlation to genetics, according to most studies, reaches .7 which is rather significant in scientific terms. you are wrong. you are just too ignorant to realize that your questions are already well studied and answered. go do some research.
