Whoa, Daniel~, you might as well Open a New Window right now and start firing up the search engine, 'cause I’m gonna need to see a LOT of cites for what you just said. (And thank you, Polycarp, for proving to me that I wasn’t imagining it, that I did hear Daniel~ say what I thought I heard him say.) :rolleyes:
They say this, and believe this, because it’s true.
You say this like it’s a bad thing. Of COURSE it’s attacked as racist, because it IS racist.
A quick tour of Google shows me that there is no real consensus in the dog breeding world as to which breeds are the most intelligent. Every survey I looked at was the opinion of one (1) person, usually a dog trainer, and differed radically in some respects from the very next survey. Some people think Labradors are smarter, some people think poodles are smarter.
However, there have been race-oriented human intelligence tests, and those tests have repeatedly demonstrated that there’s no difference in intelligence between the human races.
No, it is not. If you think it is, you need to show me a cite that says so.
–which there isn’t–
Nice try at backing up to a more politically correct parking space, but it’s too late.
Here’s MY cite--
–where’s yours? You’re the one making the assertion–YOU be the one to go find me some cites that say:
(a) That the negroid races are taller & faster that the oriental races.
(b) That any race is more intelligent than any other race.
© That the differences between the Races of Man are anything other than, literally, skin-deep.
