Re(13): Did you see the CNN story...

Does intelligence determine culture or does culture determine intelligence? Evidence points to the former because you get the same results I mentioned when you control for socioeconomic background. This is where it gets politically fraught. If you look at samples of different groups from the same socioeconomic backgrounds, you get Jews and Asians doing the best on IQ tests, then Latinos, then blacks. I believe in the lawsuit against the university of Texas it came out that in a typical year, zero blacks score high enough on the law school admission test to get into the most prestigious schools. This includes people from wealthy backgrounds. You also see these signifcant disparities on SAT tests. Socioeconomic background doesn't explain them. What does? I don't know, probably breeding patterns in early humans.
