# Math Is Racist, Reality Is Racist, Truth Is Racist, and We Hope to God You’re Racist Too

by David Sims

MATH HAS NOW been deemed “racist” because Blacks consistently score lower on math tests in high school and college classrooms, as compared with Whites.

Math is essentially quantitative logic. It’s a tool for thinking whose validity has been proved by its history of enabling people to predict, to understand, and to achieve. Math has no intrinsic purpose, but it can be used for purposes.

Calling math “racist” because Blacks find it difficult is like calling carpentry “ableist” because people who have had an arm amputated find it difficult to hammer nails. In both cases, the flaw is in the actor, not in the discipline.

Truth-seekers might start investigating whether the reason for the White-Black math test score gap is that most Blacks inherit smaller brains and less intelligence than most Whites do.

I suppose that truth is also “racist,” for similar reasons.

The differences between races is a legitimate subject of inquiry. It’s okay to be curious about it and to want to know the truth.

Anyone who tries to shame you for this curiosity is being dishonest and may be wishing for the truth to remain undiscovered or, at least, unacknowledged. Someone who challenges you with questions like “Why do you care?” or “Why are you obsessed?” is trying to shame you into curtailing your inquiry. Almost certainly, such people know that the truth is something that they would rather remain hidden (or ignored).

The differences between races have a distributed character, which means that they aren’t the same thing as specific differences between individuals. When someone says that Whites are smarter than Blacks, he means that the White race has an average IQ that is higher than is the average IQ of Blacks. He knows perfectly well that the smartest Black person is smarter than the stupidest White person. He knows that there is some overlap in the two races’ distributions of intelligence. What he means by “Whites are smarter than Blacks” is that this is true most of the time. Not always. And how often it is true can be easily predicted by integrating over the two races’ probability density functions (for frequency vs. IQ) and comparing the areas under the curves.

For example, if the White race has an IQ distribution of 103.08±14.54 (Jensen & Reynolds, Personality and Individual Differences, Vol 4, No. 2, pp. 223–226, 1983), and if the Black race has an IQ distribution of 85±13 (a typical finding of studies since 1950), and if a genius is someone with an IQ higher than 140, then, among a million randomly selected White people you may expect that will be about 5556 geniuses, whereas among a million randomly selected Black people there will be only about 12 geniuses.

f(μ) = ½ − [σ√(2π)]⁻¹ ∫(x̄,μ) exp{ −[(x−x̄)/σ]²/2 } dx

f(μ) = 1 − ½ { 1 + erf [(μ−x̄)/(σ√2)] }

The function, f, returns the fraction of a race, whose average IQ is x̄ and whose standard deviation in IQ is σ, that has an IQ of μ or higher.

If there are employers hiring people for a job that it takes a genius to do, then it should not be surprising that the racial proportions among those hired differs greatly from the racial proportions in the general population. This isn’t “racism.” It’s racial reality.

I am waiting for Mensa to be declared a racist organization. In all the years that I went to meetings, I saw only one black man.

Jews have highest IQ of all races and are the most racist people on the planet = high IQ = racist

I would dispute that conception about the IQ of Jews being the highest.

No, they don’t. The Bell Curve was largely correct, but the data on jews was gathered from a subset of a subset of a subset: male Ashkenazi jews over the age of 15 at a school for gifted children.

The actual IQ of the jewish population as a whole is likely quite different, especially considering the fact that the average for the state of Israel is only 96.

Lots of Arabs in Israel.

So?
Are Arabs and Jews significantly different enough for this to matter? If we limit this to Ashkenazi – who are racially Armenoid – we’re talking a mixed breed between Semites and Mediterraneans. Neither of those groups evidence any special cognitive traits. Lastly you ignore half my point, the important half: a higher scoring sub population was intentionally chosen as a representative sample. If that assertion is incorrect or outdated I’m open to withdrawing it but until shown otherwise…

Basically my point can be this:

How do you think the WHITE average would stack up if we only sampled our most accomplished males between 15 and 30?

Ashkenazi yes. Others, no.

By far the most ‘telling’ numerical and visual truth is when the bell curves
of blacks and whites are overlapped. Approximately 90% of blacks fall below
the white average. NINETY PERCENT. It is quite a stunning reality to both
see and say. And that is for American blacks whose collective IQs have been
helped along by 200+ years of genetic admixture. There are plenty of those
with the intelligence of their sub-human savage African forbearers. This is
and will continue to be a major problem for any non-black society as crime
and social status continually reflects. It is simply not fair, and in fact a
collective disservice to both groups to expect different, and will always
place blacks behind the curve and as outcasts. Separation is charity.

Very good comparison David Sims. One word you should have omitted is “….only….” in the sentence ending “….Black people there will be only about 12 geniuses.” It sounds bigotry?

The title is enough.

12 negro geniuses would be 12 more than there are. Negros noted for intelligence are invariably hybridised (i.e., mixed race). I doubt anyone fully negroid has ever been a genius, though I concede that it is statistically a possibility.
