A commenter disagrees with me when I said that I don’t think there is anything to this “Blacks act bad because they’re dumb” argument.
Nevertheless, I would say that easily 100% of anti-Black racists subscribe to this argument. In race realist and White nationalist circles, it’s as good as Newton’s Law of Gravity.
Only one problem: it is complete nonsense.
Whatever causes Blacks to engage in pathological behavior to an excessive degree, being dumb can’t possibly have anything to do it, at least not with Blacks in the US and the UK.
Race realists typically bandy about the “Blacks act bad because they’re stupid” thing.
Well, if you’re intelligent, you would *think* before you act. You wouldn’t pull a knife or gun out on someone simply because you lost a basketball game or an argument. Plus, you would be far less likely to engage in impulsive behavior and have a greater ability to delay gratification. What do blacks do when they get their welfare checks? Spend it on a perm or a weave.
Yes, but there are quite a few populations all over the world that have IQ’s in that range where people do not behave that way at all. They are not idiotically impulsive in behavior or spending, they save their money, they are calm and emotionally controlled, crime rates are very low, violent crime is almost nonexistent, family life is stable, pathological behavior is rare, and society generally hums along pretty well.

Granted, there’s some political violence in a few of those places, but there’s political violence everywhere. I don’t think political violence automatically means you have a nation full of morons, or Germany and Japan would end up two of the most retarded nations on Earth.
This argument about Western Blacks makes no sense at all.
Populations with the exact same IQ’s of US and UK Blacks do not engage in ridiculous impulsive violent and spendthrift behaviors. They are able to delay gratification and plan for the future quite well.
Granted, there’s a case that Blacks have difficulty in planning for the future, delaying gratification, engaging in impulsive criminal, violent or prodigal behaviors, but IQ can’t possibly have anything to do it, since there are many populations with the exact same IQ which don’t behave this way at all. Obviously something is causing it, but lack of brains can’t have anything to it.
It is here that we may enter into the realm of race and personality.
But the argument in the title deserves to be thrown on the trash heap once and for all. I’m tired of it.
