No Lives Matter
To those of you who understood what I was trying to say and didn't jump down my throat, please accept my sincere thanks.
Joko, I think, used the word "conditioning -- much better than "brainwashing." That would have been a much better word for me to have used. I shall stand perfectly still for five minutes so those who are so inclined can get off a good shot.
To those very few who think my opinion is racist, I could not possibly care any less. I know who I am.
To those who think this thread was a call-out meant to invite a Maggie Bash? I agree. And thank you for recognizing that.
And a special thanks to BlackDog for straightenin' us all out. Best post I've read on this forum in a loooong time.
Thank you, Quazi!
Higher levels of testosterone do seem to differentiate black males from others, but this is not brainwashing:
"Blacks have much higher testosterone levels than Whites from age 7-24. After 24, the difference starts shrinking, and by the early 30′s, it is gone. In later years, White men have higher testosterone than Black men. This makes it very difficult if not impossible to explain differing behavioral variables, including higher rates of crime and aggression, in Black males over the age of 33 on the basis of elevated testosterone levels.
Higher testosterone levels are linked to violent behavior. High testosterone results in lower IQ in males but better fighting and mating skills. Interestingly, the black male IQ is 83 and black female IQ is 87."
