It's not about "race", it's about the distribution of human abilities,
class structure, human behavioural genetics, human migration, mating and
the effects of long term natural selection. "Race" is incidental as you
would have picked up if you'd actually read and understood any of it.
You *are* incorrigibly ignorant, and you're also a naive dupe of what
amounts to a "politically correct" irrational liberalism which amounts
to a bizarre form of intellectual fascism and you risk sacrificing
everything rational about science as a consequence.
Try to do some *critical* self analysis and look at the empirical
research instead of posting fanciful rubbish. There are few findings
with as much evidence behind it as the above, and I suggest you should
make a determined effort to grasp what it means and it's global
implications rather than burying your head up your rectum because you
don't "like" it or would "like" it to be otherwise. It's because of your
sort of behaviour that careful science is driven underground and worse.
