    The IQ tests show that.

    As my source points out, the IQ gap between races has gone down about 5 points in a matter of years. That strongly suggests environmental factors playing the key role in any differences, since it sure ain't genetics causing the gap to narrow.
    I don't recall suggesting that the environment doesn't play a factor along with genetics.

    The paper you linked to supports my comments.

    LOL That one really backfired on your ass.

    You have not proven any genetic factor tying race and intelligence. You have not even attempted to tie race and "predisposition to violence".

    No, they don't. Stop using old racist material. That citation of 70 IQ for sub Saharan Africans is from a famously debunked study by a psychologist. It's merely being noted in the paper you linked. It is not a conclusion generated by the paper you linked. Same for the 80 IQ and American blacks.

    That you do not understand what I linked is not surprising. That you cannot defend your claims is even less surprising.

    I realize that economic factors play a huge role in violent crimes such as robbery. Money is the motive.

    However, forcible rape is a crime in which there is no economic payoff. So you can't blame socioeconomics.

    According to FBI crime statistics, blacks commit 32.9% of forcible rapes, yet they make up a mere 12.6% of the population. How do you explain this huge discrepancy? I think there's obviously a genetic factor at play.

    That's just common sense. Black men tend to have higher levels of testosterone and men with higher levels of testosterone have a higher propensity towards violence.

    People who try to blame whitey for black crime are disgusting racists.

    I can't believe that's real. There is no way anyone's grasp of socioeconomics is that shallow.

    So you don't have anything in the way of, you know, research or science, just that you think something must be true? Well, I never would have guessed that...

    Oh, and Causes of sexual violence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Causes of sexual violence are debated and explanations of the cause include socioeconomics, anger, power, sadism, sexual pleasure, psychopathy, ethical standards, laws, attitudes toward the victims and evolutionary pressures.
    Poverty is linked to both the perpetration of sexual violence and the risk of being a victim of it
