Mensa International Groups

Mensa, which is honoured to have me as a member, is an organisation for the highly intelligent. Now 'An American reader' sends me this link. He points out that in all the Mensa international membership there's not a single black country.

As the French would say, quelle surprise?

Where's our in house nigger "Madra Dubh" to contend these racist facts? On the other hand do the French really say that? and if so it doesn't give you any more legitimacy quoting poofy words en fran├žais. Poor France though, Sarkozy is a Hungarian Jew, little wonder it's almost beyond repair.

Madra dubh is gone where all conns and muzzies go when presented with facts. His unintentionally comic list of 'facts about Nigeria' was so pathetic that he's presumably ashamed to come back on this site.

Had a look at the Mensa test. It seems to have an intensive focus on arithmetical ability as well as an degree of being able of thinking out of the box.
No wonder then that their members are so under represented in Africa...wonder what the PC libbies have to say about that...

Russia also seems to be missing from this list.

The russian system of verbs of motion, which compounded, with any one of dozens of prepositions ensures that spatial movements are rapidly cognicised. As vocabulary has the effect of liberating or imprisoning your thought capacity, try to put yourself in the mind of russian who hears the verb podoidti. The english translation of this verb is to approach on foot but not quite touch. Other examples are pereplavat = to swim through, oboidti = to walk around.

This capacity to rapidly visualize movements is particularly useful to chess players and mathematicians who need to parse a changing variable as it travels through an algorithm.

Yes, good point about the Russians

Savant,

While we're on the subject of race, please allow me to pose a question regarding miscegenation to your readers who are parents. As one who generally eschews movies and TV, I was recently appalled and disgusted on a recent movie outing with my 12 year-old son. I took him to see the new Star Trek movie, and was sickened by the amount of interracial face-sucking and bed-romping. The previews, and the feature movie itself, were one big promotion for interracial coupling, ad nauseum. What the "f" is a parent supposed to do when the media is brain-washing our youth with the depraved message that interracial romance is "way cool?" Are we all doomed to eventually become brown-skinned and nappy-haired?
Sign me,
"Pissed off & sickened in America"

To "Pissed off & sickened in America" - yes, I think that's the whole agenda. Dilute the white race and eventually see it disappear. One good thing I foun dthough on a recent visit to Sweden that overwhelmingly Sacndinavians wont marry into the Turn World immigrants. How long that will last is another matter of course.

Anonymous 22.45, do what we do do. Tell your kids that they should never trust black people as they are generally unstable or dangerous and that the media is run by dangerously sick individuals. Job done and your children will be a lot safer for it.

Interesting piece in vdare by Professor Richard Lynn on IQ differences and crime rates:

Race Differences, Immigration, And The Twilight of the European Peoples
By Richard Lynn

I want to examine the changing nature of Britishness resulting from the immigration non-Europeans, particularly in the light of IQ differences between immigrants and the native white population. My approach differs from current debates about immigration which are normally concentrated on whether it is good or bad for Britain, and whether we need more of it or less, and not on the quality of the immigrants or their racial identity...

Table 2 shows the U.K. Home Office figures for the crime rates whites, Chinese, South Asians and Blacks. These statistics are for men in prison in relation to their numbers in the population and are expressed as odds ratios in which the white rate is set at 1.0 and the rates of the other groups are expressed as multiples of this. Thus the Chinese rate is 0.7 of the white rate, while the South Asian rate is 1.3 times the white rate, and the Black rate is 8.1 times the white rate...

There appear to be three reasons why racial IQs are related to crime rates.

First, those with low IQs are less able to understand the adverse cost of being caught and punished.

Second, boys with low IQs do badly at school and typically live with others who also do badly at school. As a result the whole subculture becomes alienated from school and society and sees little prospect of earning a good living by gainful employment. Crime seems to offer an attractive alternative. Alienation from school leads to disruptive behaviour that eventually leads to expulsion or exclusion.
Thus the race differences in school exclusions published by the Department for Education and Skills are similar to those in IQ, educational attainment and crime.

Figures for recent years are shown in Table 3. We see here that Chinese are only excluded at one-fifth the rate of whites. The South Asian exclusion rate is about the same, while the Black rate is 4.4 times greater.

A third reason for the high rates of crime and school exclusions of Blacks seems to be that, in addition to their low IQ, Blacks have short time horizons such that they do not look ahead at the likely future consequences of their actions.
