if the IQ tests were designed and written by black people, I'm sure blacks would test higher.
But jews and asians have higher scores than caucasians.
Of course... it's "skilled migration".
Exactly, plus some vetting is going on in the case of USA. But even without vetting, people with higher IQ tend to move out. This is particularly true in eastern europe due to wages being very equal as a legacy of communism. Doctors, teachers, etc. get very little over minimum wage (that is already super small). Romania has the lowest IQ in europe and other eastern european countries also have small average IQs despite the population being 97-100% white.
Those are Asians in America that test higher, again a select group of higher motivation individuals with more money to move to USA etc
Nope, that 106 average IQ of east asians is about asians living in Asia.
i am gonna leave this thread anyway, as i see it there is nothing to debate. Enviroment vs inheritance can not be settled due to overlap and incomplete data as far as biology goes, also karmic factors are ignored by science. It is what it is imo.
True, but there is actually some data on this due to studies done on twins. Though I can't remember the exact numbers. From what I remember the IQs are pretty much set in stone by genetics after age 3 or something like that. Whatever enviromental influences the parents can bring, they have to bring them when the kid is very little.
