A typical exchange with a Cultural Marxist. You decide who is factually correct:
“Why Talk About Race and IQ? Response to Wassim Nouwar”


This is very ego driven. “My race.” “We” accomplished this and that. LOL. Come on man! YOU can no more take credit for the good things Individuals have done than for all the bad things. Race is not even that cut-and-dry. What’s this “we” stuff? LOL. The evidence shows very clearly that no matter what race you are, if you move to a more advanced, highly specialized place, the IQ of your offspring will increase over generations. Also, what you said before about how races being different because they bred more with certain primates is total bullshit. All people have about the same markers from past primates like Neanderthals. The differences are negligible. Race is the result of people being more or less isolated for millions of years in one region. The only reason some places were able to advance faster is because they had the most efficient crops (wheat, rice, etc.) and the best animals for plowing, travel, and war (horses). In other words, pure luck. Yes, IQ matters but there are more important things to consider about people don’t you think? I’ll pick a not-so-intelligent person with a good heart over a genius piece of shit any day!

Chuck Jines – Documenting the Human Experience
Yes! I’m a egoist! You take such pride in your humility. 😉 And NO, IQ is largely genetic, and moving to a new place does NOTHING to raise IQ. I never said difference races “bred more with certain primates”. I said different races bred with different Hominoids. This is NOT “total bullshit,” as it’s a solid scientific face that ALL NON-Negros have as much as 8% Neanderthal DNA – as just ONE example. Your arguments about having the best crops and best animals is the argument presented by Jarred Diamond in his book, “Guns, Germs, and Steel.” This view is founded on the absolutism of environment, and excluded any genetic or biological factors; a view that is quite mistaken. Form the book, and a BIG problem: “in mental ability New Guineans are probably genetically innately superior to Westerners.” p.21… Waite a minute, ??? I thought genetics had nothing to do with mental ability??? If there is no such thing as innate intelligence, one cannot venture the deliciously scandalous suggestion that headhunters possess more of it than white Americans. Nice try. Thanks for stopping by.
You may want to educate yourself with more recent data:

Moving to new places has raised IQ of races. Compare native Jews to Americanized Jews and native Africans to other Africans around the world. There’s many examples.

Chuck Jines – Documenting the Human Experience
Cite your studies. Yes, blacks that have intermixed have raised IQ by 10 points, but NOT just because they moved, it’s because they intermixed with whites, and you still don’t get them up to the white average (they move from average IQ of 75 to 85 – white average is 103) . As I said, IQ is 70%-80% genetics, and 20%-30% environment. Your view is founded on the absolutism of environment, and excludes any genetic or biological factors; therefore you are in grave error. You subscribe to radical environmental determinism, a total fallacy. Here are just a few sources of information to bring you up to speed:

HOT OFF THE PRESS! Yuval Noah Harari – Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind

Jan 30, 2014 – In two new studies, genetic researchers have shown that about 20 percent of the Neanderthal genome survives in modern humans of non-African ancestry and identified exactly which areas of the human genome retain segments of Neanderthal DNA.
