Hard Tests Are So Damned Racist

Black firefighters are suing the city of Houston because they do so poorly on a test required to be elevated to the level of captain. It’s a multiple choice test, and the Black spokesman said that Blacks don’t so as well on high-stakes tests. So the Blacks are suing that the tests are discriminatory. This shows the utter insanity of Cultural Marxism. Any test that Blacks or whoever else do worse on must be racist or biased. Yeah, it’s biased because it’s hard. Whites do better on hard tests than Blacks do.

That’s racist right there. We need to get rid of all of these hard tests and requirements, all through our lives and society. We need to make all tests and requirements for every damned thing under the sun easy, because making stuff difficult is racist and KKK-like.

Later, they interview an “educational anthropologist” who acknowledges that Blacks do worse on high-stakes tests. No one quite knows why, says the article. Huh? What else don’t we know? That the Earth is round? One theory is that Blacks get inferior educations than Whites.

That’s possibly true (that they get a worse education) but the main reason for that is because when you have large numbers of Blacks in any school, typically just about everyone gets a lousy education, because the Blacks destroy the school. How do I know this? Direct observation and unfortunately experience. I taught in the LA schools for many years.

Another theory tossed is that Blacks get nervous before tough tests and screw up. This is the legendary “stereotype threat” that has been tossed out as a reason for all sorts of low Black test scores. We Leftists would love to believe in cool theories like this, or even, Hell, the eduction one, but they are both wrong.

Stereotype threat has actually been proven to be wrong in quite a few studies if you ask me, though it’s hard to test for. For one thing, Blacks don’t experience much anxiety period. I bet the Whites and Asians are probably more nervous before hard tests than the Blacks. I bet the Whites and Asians who get the highest scores (the nerds) are the most nervous of all. So much for that theory. Considering that stereotype threat has been disproven for about a decade now, it’s amazing that they are throwing it out there as a hot theory.

I believed in all this leftwing BS for most of my life. At one point, I started studying the issue. I wanted to believe all the leftwing BS, so I spent years testing it out. I think I studied this for around a decade or so, testing out all my crazy theories, and then I finally threw up my hands. None of my theories was working.

The reason that Blacks score worse on high stakes tests (or probably just about any test not involving a football, basketball or microphone) is that they are simply, as a group, less intelligent than Whites. Always less smart? Not necessarily. But they are at this point in time. We know this because IQ tests conclusively prove that Blacks are on average less intelligent than Whites right now.

I’m acquainted with one of the top IQ researchers in the world (in his case, a Leftist) and I assure you that the tests are not biased in any way, shape or form. Might Blacks at some point be just as smart as Whites, or surpass them? It’s possible; all we can say is what the scores are right now, but I would not bet on it. I do believe that Blacks have in the past and can in the future close the gap to some extent.

Are they born that way, is it biological or genetic? It’s possible, but I’m not willing to say that. Keep in mind that environment effects IQ also. IQ would not have been rising by 3 points per decade in both Blacks and Whites for the last 80 years if that were not true.

In the article, a Black firefighter compares a being a captain of a firefighting team to playing football. Forget it. I don’t necessarily support high stakes tests just to be a firefighter in the first place, but this is the test for captain. I understand that captain commands a team of men. You need to be smarter than your average firefighter to do that. He needs to make all sorts of snap, on the spot decisions and he holds the lives of his men in his hands. Damn right they need a hard test for that.

One final comment. It’s a multiple guess, excuse me,  multiple choice, test for Chrissake. How hard could it be? It’s not essay, problem solve or fill in the blanks. Come on, man.

This stuff is embarrassing for Black people. With so many fine examples of intelligent and accomplished Blacks in our land, like the President and First Lady, there’s no reason to dumb everything down. When you dumb everything down, everyone gets hurt, because you end up with unqualified clowns littering the responsible positions and holding the certificates of achievement in society. Certificates and positions which become increasingly meaningless.

Black IQ’s have risen 20 points over 80 years in the US. US Blacks today are smarter than the Whites of 1950. Black folks are getting smarter and smarter. There’s no reason to dumb everything down. What’s next on the dumb down agenda? Attorneys and physicians?

If I were going to be rude, I would say that the firefighter tests are biased all right, biased against dumb people, but I won’t say that.

    There is no such thing as a test that can mesure intelligence. IQ tests were created as a way to hold down the black man and is biased in blacks..you don’t know what you are talking about. The media tells blacks they are criminal and this mindset is supported by the racist white male dominated society.

    Thanks in part to his 1/2 European genes, no doubt.

    and First Lady

    …who majored in Sociology and African American studies, two fields heavily dominated by Marxist thought. Very rigorous progams…!

  3. As far as Michelle, she made it through an extremely hardcore law school (Yale Law) which surely flunks out anyone not cutting it. Not only that, but she passed the bar. It’s impossible for an incompetent person to passed the bar. Then she went on to a very successful career as an attorney.

    I can’t speak for Sociology. In general, it’s not extremely hard to get a BA in the US.

    Regarding Obama, surely there are many, many extremely intelligent Blacks in the US who are no more White than the average Black. Keep in mind that the average Black in the US now has the same IQ as the average White of 1950. So when you call Blacks stupid, you are calling the Whites of 1950 idiots too. Think about it.

    They were affirmative action beneficiaries, Robert.

    In general, it’s not extremely hard to get a BA in the US.

    You studied journalism.

    Keep in mind that the average Black in the US now has the same IQ as the average White of 1950. So when you call Blacks stupid, you are calling the Whites of 1950 idiots too. Think about it.

    Well, why aren’t they studying subjects like mathematics and physics, but instead choosing psychology, African American studies, and business instead? It’s a simple matter to go to the “academic advisor” and fill out a major declaration form. No one is stopping them.

  5. They were not AA beneficiaries. You don’t make it through Yale, not to mention Yale Law, being an AA shoo-in. And Obama made it through Harvard and then Harvard Law. Can’t do that if you’re stupid. I don’t get it. Even with an average IQ of 86.5 or so, a Hell of a lot of Blacks in the US are going to be extremely intelligent. I don’t get why you racists (that’s what you are) just can’t seem to figure that out. Every Black person in an important position must be an AA idiot. There’s a good 100,000 Blacks in the US with IQ’s in the Mensa range.

    Well, it’s a fact that Black IQ’s of today equal White IQ’s of 50 yrs ago. It’s called the Flynn Effect. Are you disputing this?

    But Blacks are not any better at math, vocabulary, reading, mathematical analysis, general knowledge then they were 50 years ago. Since there has been no improvement in math, maybe that is why they are not in that hardcore math and science stuff. The IQ gains have been extremely uneven with little to no progress in some areas and huge progress in others.

    Ronnie, niggers are stupid animals. Always have been, always will be. There is no reason in the world to think otherwise. If that truth makes niggers mad, if they disagree, let them prove it by acting civilized. That’s what I would do if someone claimed I was a no good, welfare-mooching, raping, robbing, lying, stinking sack of shit. I’d do everything to prove them wrong. Niggers, so far, have only proven me right.

    Yes, I would like to ask you. Please cite the studies.

    The difference isn’t black and white: stereotype threat and
    the race gap on Raven’s Advanced Progressive Matrices.

    Brown RP, Day EA.

    Department of Psychology, The University of Oklahoma, Norman,
    OK 73019, USA. rpbrown@ou.edu

    This study addresses recent criticisms aimed at the
    interpretation of stereotype threat research and
    methodological weaknesses of previous studies that have
    examined race differences on Raven’s Advanced Progressive
    Matrices (APM). African American and White undergraduates
    completed the APM under three conditions. In two threat
    conditions, participants received either standard APM
    instructions (standard threat) or were told that the APM was
    an IQ test (high threat). In a low threat condition,
    participants were told that the APM was a set of puzzles and
    that the researchers wanted their opinions of them. Results
    supported the stereotype threat interpretation of race
    differences in cognitive ability test scores. Although African
    American participants underperformed Whites under both
    standard and high threat instructions, they performed just as
    well as Whites did under low threat instructions. ((c) 2006

  8. I can’t answer that right now, Alan. I will have to look into it. My understanding is that that has been crushed. Black scores in school are equally poor, as would be predicted by lower IQ. Is there stereotype threat in school too. Scores are way lower in the Caribbean and Africa, where everyone is Black and there is no racist stereotype threat.

    All blacks admitted, whether qualified or less qualified, are affirmative action beneficiaries – in the former case since there too few of them to go around, they are fiercely sought after, and in the latter case to achieve some kind of equal representation since they are so lacking in numbers.

    Michelle went to Princeton, then Harvard Law. Obama went to Occidential, tranferred to Columbia, then Harvard Law. You got the schools wrong.

    Michelle’s law career floundered, despite being admitted to a top law school and a top law firm. She went on to do some kind of work with a diversity program. She also has had problems with taking standardized tests.

    Obama said himself that he most likely benefited from affirmative action. His college transcripts and birth records are sealed from public examination. Like the Holocaust denial laws, these measures would not be in place if there was not something to hide.
