    Is the black man more superior to his white man counterpart physically speaking? This guy who is preaching black nationilism and the original al- people made more or less the following statement to me

    1. Black man has more brain size (on average) than the white man in certain areas of the brain like:

    Also he goes into saying that melanin can convert other types of energy other than sun energy thus being able to attain more spirituality or something to that effect....

    I dont believe that to be true but melanins relationship with dmt seratonin, etc. and other chemicals of the pineal gland is very interesting to me does it make sense that black skin would be advantageous being more cocentrated since dmt and melanin and seratonin work in the same receptocytes?

    An advantage that I'm aware of is being much safer in sunshine.

    A black person is better adapted to exposing his skin in sunny countries.
    A white person is better adapted to getting enough vitamin D from limited sunshine in less sunny countries.

    It is a minor genetic variation which varies the amount of melanin in the skin.
    There is no other difference.

    Why do you ask?

    Some West African populations, and their descendents elsewhere in the world, certainly seem to dominate long-distance marathons and sports where speed and leaping ability are crucial. That includes surpassing other groups of Africans in such athletic venues, not just average whites, asians, and sub-continent, islander ethnic communities that "black" is ascribed to. Thus, in regard to this brand of superiority, I'd say it's more about a specific population having claim to being physical uber-humans, rather than ebony people in general.

    The notion of racial superiority is a pile of crap and we all know it. Brain size has nothing to do with superiority, or mental power either. If that were true, whales would be in charge, and Archie Bunker could beat a child prodigy at chess.

    Apparently a pure African is more human than the rest of the world, who carry some Neanderthal. This would be the best distinction although no one has a clue yet what that may imply for relative strengths or weaknesses. "The rest of the world" includes all "races" which is not a biological distinction anyway.

    Crap, scat, dung, effluence, and squatbucketry.

    LOL, thanks for pointing that out. I didn't even notice that I'd gone unconscious zombie and included "long distance marathons" in there, much less the inconsistency of it with the explosive activities of sprinting and jumping. Kalenjin runners, I guess, are deserving of mention due to that ability -- but it stems from a different source than athletes of West African descent (more slow-twitch muscle fibers pertaining to the former compared to increased lung capacity, longer legs, and more energy-producing enzymes with the latter).

    Women have smaller brains than men, and yet women are often in the top smartest people in the world lists.

    Darker populations simply adapted to sunnier lifestyles. Slavery and harder agriculture in some areas could account for better physical condition in some.

    I think all races are blending more and we will end up with some sort of Hawaiian type mix.

    The smartest person in the world at the moment is Chinese with an IQ over 210.

    They may be differences, but you should not put those differences down to skin colour. That is a variation on the activity of a single gene.

    there is no difference in intelligence when blacks and whites have the same educational opportunity. you may find the black person gets higher scores but thats not down to intelligence, thats down to him knowing he will have to work x2 as hard as the white guy to get the same recognition.
    but in general black people are lagging behind, simply because most of there countries still do not have a proper education system.
    saying that, there are a lot of west Africans at my local collage (North tyneside community collage,uk), which was pretty much all white until about 10 years ago. there tutors say they are a real pleasure to teach as they are hungry to learn, much more so than there white counterparts.

    its likely your worker would pick the 1 with the nearest skin colour to his own... yes thats racist but most people are.
    im racist. but i try not to be. which i think is more honest than telling any 1 who will listen that im not.

    By the way my example about Haiti was nothing about intelligence it was about economy, technology and culture .
    The initial post was about "size of the brain", the implication was about intelligence

    Skin color is one of the most ephemeral of human traits. When a population migrates south it needs more melanin to protect against skin cancer. When a population migrates north it needs less melanin in order to produce enough Vitamin A. It only takes a couple of thousand years for the required amount of melanin to become the norm. Compare the extremely light-skinned Latvians to the extremely dark-skinned southern Indic people. They're both Eastern Indo-European people from the original homeland in the Pontic Steppe, separated only by three or four thousand years of migration in opposite directions.

    I'm still wondering what this "black race" is. It can't be a biological term.
