    >>> racial hatred is tolerated

    The guy is a racist bigot - and is having his point torn to shreds. Sweeping it under the carpet acheives nothing. Seeing it, he may actually begin to see the light.

    Would this tolerated if the word Arficans was exchanged for 'blacks', 'Jews', 'Christians'?

    If not, can I ask the moderators why racial hatred is tolerated against Africans while not against other cultures, religions and races.
    I'm just stating the facts.
    If you want to join a 'University for 'Talented People' ', if you're a normal blank person, and make the average test, you're accepted. If you're a black person, and you score lower, you're still allowed. If you're a jew, and you make an average test, you're not allowed sometimes, because jews are looked at as if though they're smarter then others.

    No, you're not.

    There is nothing suggesting that non-caucasians are any less smart than caucasians.

    Really? Then why does the average 'black' person score less on an intelligence test? And why is almost everything on this world invented by blank or yellow people? And why do we have positive discrimination? Tell me why.

    Given the same upbringing and presented with the same opportunities, I would suggest that any racial group would produce a similar range of intellect.

    The differences you may think you are seeing are more likely to be artefacts of the first clause of the above paragraph not being the case.

    Since the human species arose in Africa - one could say that the "blank", (never heard that expression before), and yellow people are a product of Africans.

    The people who developed IQ test simply changed the questions untill they got a the result they wanted: a bell curve with reasonable correlation with academic ability and other "markers" of "intelligence". But there sample population was caucasion.

    The IQ test shows cultural bias towards caucasian populations, there are types of problems within IQ tests that people get better at the more they practise within given limits.

    An example is:

    All As are Bs are all Bs As?

    The bell-curve which presented the arguments that Africans were not as intelligence as their caucasian counter parts was ripped apart by the scientific community as a result.

    There is no decent evidence nor reasoning from accepted theory that points to any innate differences in intellect between the different "races".

    Invention relates to far more than intelligence, wealth and cultural direction play a huge role.

    And whatever elements of "positive discrimination" that exist within Western societies are invariably there to counteract the huge amount of NEGATIVE discrimination that did and continues to exist.

    I still think that's doubtful. Because Jews are discrimanted, but they don't get positive discrimination.

    All the others ofcourse can be true.

    >we learned it and earned it

    Not speaking from my american culture, but rather from my Asian culture, I concur. I'm don't like hearing about reverse discrimination or discrimination itself, but what's done is done and there's not much use crying over spilt milk. It also bothers me that often times the discrimiation against Asians and Asian Americans is often downplayed because of us being stereotyped as a "model minority". Of the world, one of every two people you may meet would be Asian, and unfortunately though still America's boiling pot of ethnicities remains primarily caucasian. Perhaps it is a question of values what makes people earn such things?

    >I don't get assistance based on racial classification

    Hm, have you heard of CRENO? I'm not sure if this is a Californian-specific proposal, but if you happen to have, I wonder if you bothered to vote.

    >And whatever elements of "positive discrimination" that exist within Western societies are invariably there to counteract the huge amount of NEGATIVE discrimination that did and continues to exist.

    I agree, speaking solely on behalf of an Asian-American. And another thing, I fail to see how others find it their right to be able to speak on behalf of another culture or religion, or even sometimes their own because it gives rise to falsity and generalizations come about. For example, of the people speaking in this thread, whom have in the least spoken for their own culture or ethnicity or religion?
