Hints At Racism

The notion of an IQ quotient, in my opinion, is a semi-racist classification since African Americans consistently perform lower, in general, on IQ tests than Asian Americans and White Americans. Does that mean that African Americans are less intelligent? Give me a break. The brain is far more complex than the results of a single number. The whole concept started off as innocent, but then it led to ridiculous organizations such as Mensa. I've come across people who think their sole credibility in their essays is established by their high IQ test results. Give me another break.

Warm regards, Harv
