Things Over-Privileged White People Say

Things you shouldn’t send out in email:

I absolutely do not rule out the possibility that African Americans are, on average, genetically predisposed to be less intelligent. I could also obviously be convinced that by controlling for the right variables, we would see that they are, in fact, as intelligent as white people under the same circumstances. The fact is, some things are genetic. African Americans tend to have darker skin. Irish people are more likely to have red hair. (Now on to the more controversial:) Women tend to perform less well in math due at least in part to prenatal levels of testosterone, which also account for variations in mathematics performance within genders. This suggests to me that some part of intelligence is genetic, just like identical twins raised apart tend to have very similar IQs and just like I think my babies will be geniuses and beautiful individuals whether I raise them or give them to an orphanage in Nigeria. I don’t think it is that controversial of an opinion to say I think it is at least possible that African Americans are less intelligent on a genetic level, and I didn’t mean to shy away from that opinion at dinner.

    A lawyer discussing genetics……. much like a pedophile running a daycare center.

  2. in my expensive school the white kids were never the top students.

    Yeah, cuz negroes or black people or african americans or whatever we want to be called now never say anything racist or stupid or assinine. Y’all perfect, wez forgot.

    Just like that ‘harlem miracle’ nonsense going on: its not a revolution to repeat the success of others. Its been preached for years. Finally someone had big enough ears to listen. “Gee, if the parents are actually involved in their kids education, if the kids are given high statndards, if they dont have to run a gauntlet of fear and crime every day, if school and learning are actual PRIORITIES instead of meaningless athletics, if they are held accountable for achievement, and if learning is seen as desirable by the kids, parents and community…..then kids can actually learn and achieve like every other group of humanity. WOW – INCREDIBLE CONCEPT. its only been going on in every other ‘good’ school since the begininng of time.

    It all begins with you, not others. Take responsibility for your life, fool.

    -.- This is crap, I’m tired of being hated for the color of my skin. I was a poor white chick who’s actually had a relative who was a slave, who had her Baby taken from her. But I still get hated because of the color of my skin. I don’t blame other people for the fact my relative who I never met was a slave. I don’t hate other people for their skin color! We’re all just people. You want to know who’s racist? Whoever the hell posted this crappy page. I’ve never said anything ignorant like the things posted here, and making generalizations like that, show’s exactly how racist whoever made this page is. Don’t care if their the same color as me, doesn’t make the statement any less true.

  6. Truth Speaker says:

    If you aren’t denying that blacks can be genetically taller, stronger or faster; why are you denying the notion that white people can be more intelligent. Please name black geniuses on par with Newton, Einstein, Tesla, and so forth. Whites can name geniuses up the ass throughout the last millennium, what about blacks?

    I hope you realize you’re racist against whites if you believe that black people can jump higher or run faster than whites. People are superior to other people, racism isn’t an issue, it’s a truth of the world.

      Frederick Douglass, Elijah McCoy, Lewis Latimer, Miles Davis, Dr. Patricia E. Bath, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Frederick Wright, Alexadre Dumas, Oscar Micheaux, Langston Hughes, Chuck Berry, Frederick McKinely Jones, Frederick Gregory.

      I dare you to prove, citing evidence and beyond any shadow of a doubt, that ONE of those aforementioned did not made a significant contribution to the world.

      You won’t succeed.

        Other persons that are “black geniuses on par with newton, Einstein, Telsa and so forth” Truth Speaker. Neil DeGrasse Tyson (astrophysicist), Elise Tan ( IQ of 156 at age 2, card-carrying member of Mensa), Dr. Ben Carson (made medical history, look him up), Britney Exline ( an actual genius, also look her up), Dr Ronald Mallet (brilliant physicist), Ornette Coleman (one of the creators of free jazz) Just to name a few

        Scientific Racism ( the use of scientific or pseudo-scientific techniques and hypotheses to support or justify the belief in racism, racial inferiority, or racial superiority, or alternatively the claim of classifying individuals of different phenotypes into discrete races or ethnicities) -Has been proven scientifically false. Also it’s really just kind-of weak minded and mean.
