    You're aiming your offensive response in the wrong direction.

    I'm not a liberal so I don't play the victim. I am pointing out liberal hypocrisy.

    Facts are facts. Facts are not bigoted.

    The Sacramento Bee, which published the story Saturday, did not speak to the student at C.K. McClatchy High School and is not identifying the minor. The project was on view with others Monday as part of an annual science fair but was removed Wednesday after complaints. Sacramento City Unified School District Supt. Jorge Aguilar on Saturday released a video statement noting his own struggles as a minority and saying racially insensitive language will not be tolerated.

    Sounds like what is happening now with science that does not support man made global warming...as if the voices on the left don't censor.

They already know what answer they want. It would be like a physicist starting with the question, "What evidence should I look for that will prove the existence of God?"
    Stole my thunder. We've been running experiments on humans pretty much as long as there have been humans to experiment on.

    Man alive, the mental gymnastics required for this kid.

    Take pseudo studies that show whites as superior and somehow, magically, convince self that what they ACTUALLY meant was whites AND Northeastern Asians.

    Because yeah - it’s totally normal to look at the world as having two main racial groups : whites and northeast Asians as one group, and “other”.

    Sure bud. That’s a totally normal classification of racial groups.

    Thank you, but I had to take these tests a lot when I was young and in and out of hospitals. I know what my IQ is and would rather not comment on it. It reminds me of bad times, but thank you.

    I have to wonder how the student got this far with the project. Typically, students are not told "go do a science project," and sent on their merry way. The teacher usually works with each student, asking them what they plan to do. The teacher is supposed to ensure that the project follows the scientific method, and provide guidance (or at least oversight). It seems strange that a student would get so far into the project without the teacher being aware.

    For what it's worth, there's no "good" measure of IQ. Unlike (for example) testing for high cholesterol, IQ tests are "approximate." If you give your blood samples to two qualified labs, and ask them for the cholesterol counts, odds are good that you'll get near-exact results. Send a person with psychological disorders to three or four practitioners, and you probably get similar diagnoses - but not necessarily the same.

    But testing one's IQ? Different tests will get results in the same general ballpark - but with a fairly wide margin-of-error. There are just WAY too many factors that can influence the scores.

    Par for the course, the left complaining about a behavior they have perfected.
    Someone's mad they took his racism project from a science fair...
