Even if this is true, it's not meaningful in the discussion of human intelligence evolution to the modern time. The genes for intelligence obviously diverged away from the sub-Saharan population in favor of the Eurasian population. The sub-Saharans stayed low intelligence and the Eurasians gained intelligence. Saying we share a common ancestor proves we're on equal footing in intelligence is divisive since we also share a single-celled organism as a common ancestor and no one, except for maybe the low intelligence portion of the population, would say that makes us what we are today. So, despite having a common ancestor, Eurasians definitely excelled while the rest only improved marginally. This essentially proves the genetic differences between the races and populations. We're not all the same species anymore.

I know your leftist brain can't comprehend this, but when you have a genetic diversion within a group of organisms, then you have speciation or variance that makes them different. If two moths with a common genetic ancestor diverge such that one has some physical characteristics that differ from the other such as wing coloration, then they are different variant species. Humans have diverged to have different physical and genetic characteristics so we have diverged into different variant species as well. Your politics is causing cognitive dissonance in your ability to comprehend this. You cannot accept the truth of genetics because you want desperately to say we are all equal when clearly we are not. I am not the one developmentally disabled here because I can separate my political views from genetic fact. You on the other hand...
