Does nature have a naturalorder for things?

Isn't this the same order (with the addition of Ashkenazi Jews at the top) of group/racial IQ as outlined in the book The Bell Curve.

Why wouldn't you expect IQ and income to track?

Am I racist for even noticing?

(BTW, 80% of the Jewish immigrants to the US are Ashkenazi Jews)

1. “Does nature have a naturalorder for things?”

Nature is what the Party says it is.

2. “Isn’t this the same order (with the addition of Ashkenazi Jews at the top) of group/racial IQ as outlined in the book The Bell Curve.”

Even remembering that unbook is thoughtcrime.

3. “Why wouldn’t you expect IQ and income to track?”

Because it is not natural. See point # 1 above.

4. “Am I racist for even noticing?”

No, because unpeople do not exist, nor have they ever existed.

Not exactly, the Asians have pulled even farther ahead. Strange what having a culture that is fanatical about education and achievement can do. I have long argued that there is no such thing as a superior race, but there is manifestly obvious that there are superior and inferior cultures.

They don't take into account the retired folks' income or those forced out of the workplace by unemployment.

No you’re not racist at all.

Hey, I just found out I’m Asian. All my parents did was instill values to study hard, work hard, take pride in my accomplishments, and have integrity in all that I do. Basically, if you want to move ahead in life, WORK TOWARD IT. If you don’t want to work for it, don’t complain when others do.

These results scratch the surface of what happens when people live a color-coded life and believe race precludes all else. (ex: blacks implying that other blacks ‘act white’ when they focus on academics. Or are sellouts for embracing individuality, discipline, sacrifice, and a work ethic)

It could be culture since the culture within our HOME was my training ground. It helps that my parents were conservative.

No. There are only 2 groups: black and non-black. The Jews aren't human, so they don't count. /s

Ashkenazi Jews rank one standard deviation above the rest of the world’s white population in IQ. I do not know how they rank against Asians.

I know that many Pakistanis and Arabs identify themselves as White or Caucasian.

One does wonder if the Asian category is only for Orientals?

Don’t matter much, Indians prefer not to think of themselves as a minority. American will do fine.

Every June there is a story about the "achievement gap" between racial groups in the schools. It is the annual pandering for more money to "fix" the problem. The gap remains the same year after year. Much like the income gap graph. Too bad the voters are too stupid to check history and tell the pandering politicians there will be no more money thrown at an "effort" that has never resulted in any significant improvement.

The mean IQ for Askenazi is 112.6, with 100 being average white European

Asian IQ depends on country, but it’s 100 to 105ish.

What matters, IMHO, is not the mean, but the number of 140+ IQ people, which are much heavier in Jewish families.

You don’t need many geniuses for a country or a group to get ahead.

I mean, it took one Einstein.

Interestingly, the USA and Israel have pretty similiar bi-modal IQ distributions -— 80 and 120 for an average of 100, so to speak.

This results in a good mix of manual labor and brain power — which is really a very effective mix.

The problem is not the achievement gap, but the ambition gap.

Exactly. A person might have a 100 IQ, but you use every bit of it and do quite well in life. On the other hand a 140 IQ that spends the entire day playing video games and posting on KOS how much he loves Obama isn't going to go far.

It's really a mix of IQ (potential), culture (external pressures) and ambition (internal drive) and opportunity. Misfiring on any one of those limits maximum achievement. IQ is the one you can't fix. It is usually a stable value +/- 5 points over the life of an individual. It is subject to going down due to trauma, disease or malnutrition over time.
