https://www.bittermedicineblogs.com – On today’s show we discuss the White people lie that Black people have a lower average I.Q., versus every other race. It’s a lie and they know it! They don’t discuss I.Q. scores with each other.
The goal of I.Q. tests is to measure intelligence and thus academic potential and likelihood for success. It’s a known fact that intelligence is affected by environmental factors; something that the I.Q. test does not account for. See the issue? Furthermore, the test is limited in that it doesn’t measure emotional and social intelligence.
In fact, emotional and social intelligence which are empathy and common sense/street smarts, respectively, are more in tune with African thought and customs. We are a practical people that gain our knowledge mostly from what’s happening around us. We learn success and failure in social settings. White folks have serious deficits in these types of intelligence and their I.Q. test totally ignores this, making the I.Q. test fundamentally European. Ask yourself: How well would white folks do with an African-centered I.Q. test?
That said, the I.Q. test can still be useful for identifying learning needs. To this end, we list areas in learning where Black people can do better. Listen to learn more.
