    Lot's of artists in my family. Music and poetry were my favorites.

    Words have meaning. Did this science project follow the criteria of scientific studies?

    That's BS.

    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.
    Exactly. It's no different than the stormfronters that make it a point to always refer to Sub-saharan Africa when they are trying to differentiate their achievements and black people, because they know they would look rather stupid trying to argue achievements compared to all of africa which includes Egypt and Morocco.

    People have different methods for surviving, in which an IQ test does not account for. An example of this would be if you placed someone from Africa in the Siberian tundra and placed someone from Europe into the African plains without current technology and weapons.

    Well, true, although I dunno how much brain structure, etc. is influenced by ancient ancestors.

    There's no such thing as a "white" or "black" brain.
