One of my Liberal Race Realist commenters notes on the Liberals Ruined American Blacks, and Other Republican Lies post:
Isn’t this why Lincoln wanted separation – he realised that different average abilities meant there would be large inequalities & that would create problems?
What is incredible is that European countries allow in large number of Blacks naively assuming that they will perform differently to those in the US.
Letting in Blacks is just fine, I have no problems with it. However, a Liberal Race Realist position notes that, say, African Blacks have very low IQ’s and probably are going to fail in advanced European society. They will also probably commit lots of crime.
That doesn’t mean don’t let any of them in! It means be very picky. The US immigration program for African Blacks is one of the great world immigration success stories. Any nation would want to emulate it.
Wisely, we put no quotas on Africans in 1965. Instead, we let in only those we really think can make it. As is, we generally only take the cream of the African crop here in the US. African immigrants to the US have been a smashing success – they have the highest IQ’s of any immigrants – about 107.5. They also have the highest educational attainment.
Some racists have argued that a degree from a Sub Saharan university is no good, but that does not seem to be the case. I understand that these universities are actually quite rigorous despite what you might think. Anyway, once they get in here, African immigrants usually need to pass their boards.
I have known two African immigrants, both Physician’s Assistants. PA is a very rigorous job. Both obtained their PA degrees in rigorous programs in the US, since we don’t accept PA grads (assuming there are any) from other countries. Both were very good at what they did, especially the man, a very intelligent Nigerian guy.
People look at the African IQ and conclude that all Africans must be morons. They even produce complex equations showing that the number of bright folks must be very small. Yet that does not seem to be the case. I’m not sure how it works, and I don’t understand the math behind it, but there are quite a few smart Black Africans. How do I know? I’ve met some of them.
I knew a fellow from Benin, Black as night. He used to work for my company as a programmer. He went to Morocco, got a degree, then on to France, where he is working in IT. The guy is just a flat out genius. He’s got to be smarter than I am, and I have a genius IQ (>140).
He’s so brilliant in IT* that last I heard he was working with some ultra-geniuses at MIT on some super advanced academic style cutting edge IT theory stuff. I read it over, but I could not make heads or tails out of it. You know the IT brains at MIT must be some of the smartest around.
He’s now living in France and he’s a fine addition to the French nation (further, he speaks fluent French from Benin). He’s not only an IT brain; he’s smart about just about anything. You start talking politics, history, you name it, and he starts rattling away.
He’s also, like many Blacks, extremely sociable (spends a lot of time in bars), has a taste for White women and is quite skillful in acquiring them. One of the last times I talked to him, he said he had to go because he had a 2 AM “date” with two White French girls. Haha!
He was also overconfident, somewhat irresponsible and a little sloppy (I am going to go out on a limb and argue that this is part of “Black intelligence” and possibly “Black personality”) like many Black geniuses. He worked for me for a while as a programmer, and I had to fix up his code sometimes because he banged it out so fast. It was kind of hard, especially since I’m not even a programmer myself!
What I mean by “sloppy” is that a lot of Blacks have a “don’t sweat the small stuff” type attitude towards work and life in general. That’s fine, but it gets in the way in “uptight” White society.
A friend is now at the university. He had a Black girl in his group with this typical mindset. She had a “just bang it out and forget about it” mindset. My friend kept arguing that such and such a presentation was a bad idea, or that they should clean up the misspellings, poor sentence construction, etc. but her attitude was “wing it” and “as long as it gets a good grade, who cares.” My friend said she was actually bright, but she did have this “quick and dirty” attitude.
Obviously, this is just stereotypical Black personality. As a counterexample, Alpha Unit, my Black guest poster on this site, is diligent, perfectionistic and self-correcting nearly to the point of excess. Black personality and Black intelligence are merely generalizations, and many Blacks are not going to fit into that neat box.
*It is quite interesting that Africa is starting to produce a lot of mathematics geniuses, usually men of course. If Africans really do have elevated testosterone, this should excessively masculinize the male African brain. One upside to this is a possible tendency of a few of the brightest male Africans to do very well in math (a heavily masculinized brain is math-superior).
