Black employment rates, poverty rates and crime rates are all exactly as you would expect them to be from looking at their average IQ.
However when you pretend that there are no differences between the races, it suddenly becomes a great unsolvable mystery of why the Black race is the way that it is.
Economists are currently scratching their heads as to why successful middle class Blacks do not have successful middle class children like White people do.
Of course they refuse to even mention IQ and instead look for a way to blame Whitey.
When it comes to financial stability, black Americans are often in much more precarious financial situations than white Americans. Their unemployment rate is higher, and so is the level of poverty within the black community. In 2013, the poverty rate among white Americans was 9.6 percent, among black Americans it was 27.2 percent. And the gap between the wealth of white families and black families has widened to its highest levels since 1989, according to a 2014 study by Pew Research Center.
The facts of this rift aren’t new, or all that surprising. But perhaps what’s most unsettling about the current economic climate in black America is that when black families attain middle-class status, the likelihood that their children will remain there, or do better, isn’t high.
“Even black Americans who make it to the middle class are likely to see their kids fall down the ladder,” writes Richard Reeves, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institute. In a recent blog post Reeves says that seven out of 10 black children who are born to families with income that falls in the middle quintile of the income spectrum will find themselves with income that’s one to two quintiles below their parents‘ during their own adulthood.
The explanations for this phenomenon are varied, but largely hinge on many of the criticisms that already exist in regard to socioeconomics and race in the U.S. Economists cite lower educational attainment, higher rates of single-parent households, and geographic segregation as potential explanations for these trends. The latter determines not only what neighborhoods people live in, but often what types of schools children attend, which could play a role in hindering their educational and professional attainment later on. According to Reeves, “In terms of opportunity, there are still two Americas, divided by race.”
Still, most economists lack a clear, definitive explanation for why, after reaching the middle class, many black American families quickly lose that status as their children fall behind.
The reason why is actually quite simple, it is because Blacks have a far lower average IQ than White people do, a full 15 points. In fact one in five of them have an IQ only in the 70-75 range, which is retarded by White standards.
This means that the only way Blacks can ever get to a position comparable to Whites is through cheating.
Which is what affirmative action is – it means giving Blacks unearned privileges that they do not deserve. Of course this also means that they are not going to be able to pass on their new-found middle class position in society to their children, because they had never earned it in the first place.
The Negro was never the same as the White man and no matter how many resources are wasted in trying to elevate him, he will always remain the same.
And the sooner the economists realize this, the better it will be for all of us.
