Are Caucasians More Intelligent than Africans?

by Uche Onegeria 16 May , 2016  

Black skin colour has been the target of bullying and discrimination in almost all spheres of our everyday lives.
If you are not black, you might not understand what this means.However, many racists refuse to believe that any difference historically observed between these 2 groups of people (who are both humans by the way) is arguably due to the starkly different and unequal opportunities availed to people from each of these groups.

All Humans are Same Irrespective of Skin Colour!

If you are blindfolded while communicating with these individuals, colour will be the last thing on your mind.

I do not even want to bring up slavery. I was not there and rarely discuss what I am clueless about, so I will blame the obvious culprit; the corrupt African leaders.

In case you did not know this; Race is not “a thing”. It is not even a scientific description or… It is only a human invention (the most stupid one, I think) and if you want to know all there is to it, I will help you out. It is purely physical; it is ONLY ABOUTCOLOUR. That is all. End of story!

And if you want more proof, find it on Wikipedia

Can you tell anything that is beyond the surface about these 2 men? Give it a try, Clairvoyant! www.salon.com
“Even though there is a broad scientific agreement that essentialist and typological conceptualizations of race are untenable, scientists around the world continue to conceptualize race in widely differing ways, some of which have essentialist implications. While some researchers use the concept of race to make distinctions among fuzzy sets of traits or observable differences in behaviour, others in the scientific communitysuggest that the idea of race often is used in a naive[12] or simplistic way, and argue that, among humans, race has no taxonomic significance by pointing out that all living humans belong to the same speciesHomo sapiens, and subspeciesHomo sapiens sapiens.”

How do available opportunities seem to validate the claim that the white man is smarter than the black man?

It does so with our typical African background which is ridden with:
1. Low-quality education with minimal viable developmental resources.
2. Lack or minimal exposure to technology and its advancement.
3. Our signatory epileptic power situation which could retard the morale or/and intellectual capacity of even the most enthusiastic and genius child.
4. Lack of sound infrastructure.etc.,

…most conditions required for an African child to have a comparable background with the white child is almost eroded or non-existent.

This here is is your difference between a black man’s brain and a white man’s brain.
What will a black man’s brain and a white man’s brain look like?
Just like the shape of your nose, colour of your eyes, length of your hair and even our various different skin colours in Africa, it is purely physical. Are light-skinned Africans more intelligent (smarter) than the darker ones? So why do you think that a white man is smarter than you are?
Genevieve Nnaji (L) and Caroline Danjuma (R)
Do you think Caroline Danjuma is smarter than Genevieve Nnaji because she is light-skinned?
Even if it is discovered that Caroline is smarter than Genevieve, do you think skin colour has anything to do with that?
Forget the “racists” who look down their noses on black skin. The truth does not lie! The brain is not coloured white, black or blue. It is just a brain with cells like any other organ. If you looked at a brain from a black man and that from a white man, they will both look same. No one will see both and say, “Oh, that is a black man’s brain on the right because….it is too small/dark/ugly”. They all look same.

Do you think that the celebrated Nigerians overseas owe their success to their new geographic locations?

Hmm… I have always wondered why many Africans (Nigerians) travel overseas and suddenly make the news headlines for breaking one academic record or the other? Like I initially said, it is not just about the physical location. Anyone that gets the right information which would enable them to spread their wings will truly thrive and break barriers. In this case, I think the plant was simply uprooted from a weaker soil to a more fertile one. They did not get “brain transplant” from white men!
Is Africa a “dream killer” continent?
I will not jump to such a careless conclusion. However, I know that because of the frustrating conditions caused by terrible leadership, most Africans are left blind, inept or brutally have their existing “wings” clipped. Others might not even be aware that they have “wings”.
However, there are also some exceptional individuals who have broken barriers from Africa as well. It is all about “favourable conditions”, and nothing to do with “skin colour”.
