    President Obama is much more intelligent than the average America. You don't graduate from Harvard Law summa cum laude and be an idiot.

    You mean like your last president?

    But even those things are indicative of intelligence. Becoming a good speaker and surrounding oneself with intelligent people indicate a degree of intelligence...not to mention the ability to determine WHICH intelligent people to listen to, when they disagree. Additionally, presidents usually have had a solid resume prior to taking office (usually as a goveror/senator/VP, and with an advanced degree from a prestigious school) where they would have had plenty of opportunity to falter if they were lacking in intellect.

    right, because there is just NO WAY a black man could earn his way into Harvard.




    ...now, was his law degree and graduation with highest honors also a product of affirmative action?

    You can easily guess at the percentage of liberals here that believe they are smarter than GWB...

    Aside from being a "legacy" of course!

    Oh I believe I'm smarter than Bush, and I question whether he had the intellectual firepower to be president. But that's not to say he was stupid...I think he was considerably smarter than the average person. I just think that the president should be truly exceptional, rather than merely smart.

What stopped mutation, drift and selection from working?
    So I'll take that as a "yes", you do think blacks are genetically predisposed to being less intelligent than whites. That reminds me of racism.

    What's weird about your conclusion though is that "race" is a contested concept and races are not accepted to exist by most scientists as unambiguous, biologically distinct groups. Consequently, to say that certain races are more intelligent than others is to make a statement based on a concept that does not exist in any significant form.

    That said:

    The official position of the American Anthropological Association is that intelligence cannot be biologically determined by race.[2] The American Psychological Association has said that while there are differences in average IQ between racial groups, and there is no conclusive evidence for environmental explanations, there is even less empirical support for a genetic interpretation, and no adequate explanation for the racial IQ gap is presently available.[3][4] According to a 1996 statement from the American Association of Physical Anthropologists, although heredity influences behavior in individuals, it does not affect the ability of a population to function in any social setting, and all peoples "possess equal biological ability to assimilate any human culture" and "racist political doctrines find no foundation in scientific knowledge concerning modern or past human populations."

    Race and intelligence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    But whatever, it's cool that you think black people are genetically more stupid than whites.

    Education and intelligence are two different things.
