There's no such thing as all or nothing. But some factors obviously will figure more heavily than others, particularly when you're seeing the similar patterns in different population groups all over the world.

But even within the same extended family, the different households will perform differently based on the different decisions people choose to make. Everyone understands that point and the related parallels in every other group they actively participate in, but then they freak out when the same patterns are pointed out in larger groups.

Why is your brother's outcome different than yours? Because one of you was oppressed by the Patriarchy and denied social equity, or is it more likely you two simply made different choices based on different priorities? Could you live in harmony in your brother's house without making certain changes to your priorities? Probably not.

It's only a problem for you if you think everyone is a widget and that simply changing their zip code automatically changes anything else about them.

As always, you're ignoring the socioeconomic status and concentrating on the IQ gap based on race and nationality.

When you account for the socioeconomic status the gap is small to non existent.

You hate the facts.

Like the fact that parts of the population which have been segregated, pushed down economically, denied education and systematically discriminated against for centuries would have poorer cognitive abilities as the result.

But no, it's because they didn't make the right choices.


Your claims about inherent intelligence levels based on race and nationality were used to justify colonialism, slavery, racism, social Darwinism, and racial eugenics.

What you're arguing for is the very basis for white supremacy.
