An article to be published today in the prestigious journal NATURE is sure to engender controversy with its claim that Black Americans are smarter that White Americans.
The article, based on the research of a team of Educational Psychologists and Statisticians led by Dr. Cedrick Fellows of the School of Education at the University of Mississippi, claims that every IQ test ever administered in the United States was erroneously scored. The article bases its conclusion on an exhaustive reanalysis of the scoring of 7,345,983,211 IQ tests administered in the United States during the period 1955-1999. The article claims that 99.99% of these IQ tests were scored according to an algorithm that would give Whites 9.3 points more and Blacks 17.1 points less than they should have received. When this universe of IQ scores is correctly computed the median IQ score of Black American is 109.3 and the median IQ score of White Americans is 92.6.
Dr. Fellows offered some additional insights in a phone call.
"There is a high degree of external validity to these results. Compare the careers of Colin Powell (Former Secretary of State, Former Chairman Joint Chiefs of Staff), Dr. Thomas Sowell (Rose and Milton Friedman Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University), Dr. Walter Williams (Professor of Economics, George Mason University), Clarence Thomas, (Associate Justice, US Supreme Court), and Dr. Condoleezza Rice (Current Secretary of State, Former Provost of Stanford University) to Paris Hilton, Brittany Spears, Al Gore, Antonella Barba, and Al Frankin. You want more proof? Compare J.C. Watts (Republican, Oklahoma, Member of US House of Representatives from 1990-2002) to Nancy Pelosi (Democrat, Peoples Republic of San Francisco, and Current Speaker of the House.) After twelve years Watts wanted out of that cesspool. Pelosi wants to run it."
Bubba Hargrove, President of Degrees-While-You-Wait, a leading on-line university, gave his views of the article.
Before answering our question Mr. Hargrove took a long swig of REBEL YELL and leaned against his '73 Chevy pickup that was covered with stickers such as: "The Confederacy is Not Dead-Only Sleeping!"; "White Sheets + White Men = White America!"; and, "Have You Burned A Cross Today?"
"Fellows is wrong! Wrong! Wrong!" said Mr. Hargrove.
When asked to provide proof of his position Mr. Hargrove replied:
"Don't need proof. We got consensus. Whites are the smarter. When you got consensus you don' need prove nothin'. What's feer for global warming is feer here too. Ken I borrow sum bucks from you? Ma truck is almost dry of gas an I haven' et all day."
