Are We Equal?

Dr. Williams is right on the mark with this. People have an odd prospective in the US on "equality". Everyone is below average on at least one thing and above average on at least one other thing. Some things may seem trivial but generally ONLY if you are looking at one item. As far as professional sports are concerned, the blacks rule in most cases. So - does that mean that the blacks are racist? Not at all. The same is for other areas of expertice. No one race rules all of them so why blame the race that is the best at one particular thing of being racist because another race isn't the top there? Frankly, I'd be upset if any sport excluded someone who is better than others simply because of race ... even if it isn't MY race.

But blacks haven't always ruled in pro spots. So, have blacks and whites changed, or has the culture changed?

I know quite a few people who are way below average across the board.

obama delenda est
Are women equal to men? Are Jews equal to gentiles? Are blacks equal to Italians, Irish, Polish and other white people? The answer is probably a big fat no, and the pretense or assumption that we are equal -- or should be equal -- is foolhardy and creates mischief. Let's look at it.

Male geniuses outnumber female geniuses 7-to-1. Female intelligence is packed much closer to the middle of the bell curve, whereas men's intelligence has far greater variability. That means that though there are many more male geniuses, there are also many more male idiots. The latter might partially explain...
