you see, one idiotic idea doesn,t get better when exchanged with another....aminah
mind your language (aminah); triciabel has a right to air her view, without being considered idiotic.
let's learn to argue in some robust way that brings out the beauty of intellect;
in a way that can help positively influence the thinking of others;
let us argue in such a way that makes understanding of who we are and what we stand for
quite easy to assimilate...
sound argument isn't conflict; it isn't competition nor brain-washing;
it should be a rigorous examination and explanation of what we feel, think and are convinced about.
well, in actual fact, the question may be poorly defined.
should it be added that the intelligence meant in this context include the socio-economic-political aspects.
the intelligence meant here is the totality of man's ability to rise above others or other things.
How did they achieve that comfort? Easy, we (being an oyibo) stole it....thebasque
the ability to steal, in itself smacks of some superior ability one who steals over the one
who's been dispossessed. don't you think?
you see, here, the issue is not about the morality of intelligence; it is about it's being
more abundant, generally speaking, in some people more than the others. let's be realistic
and not dwell on what should be or should not be.
to illustrate: ekiti state in nigeria is known to have the highest number of professors; they're
generally renowned to be more academically inclined than any other citizens of nigeria. it's logical
to conclude that they've got more academic sense than other nigerian people...innit?
consider the igbos: their legendary business acumen is indisputable. their resilience and shrewdness
are like billboards all over nigeria.
then think of the whites (oyinbos) generally, aren't they more intelligent than blacks (dudu)?
BeiBee, some times I think you are just trying to instigate argument...thebasque
you ain't far from the conclusion.
thebasque: beibee's fond of things that reveal the inner-workings of others and self.
issues, from the ridiculous to the sublime, should be pursued rigorously; it's some form
of exercise...while beibee understands that others' feelings should be put into consideration
as humanly possible.
and beibee feels and is convinced that when one feels touchy about any issue
the course of wisdom is to avoid it. if you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen.
it's like a classroom: some are daft, some are wise, others smart, etc
the whites being at advantage in the world, may not have a lot to do with there mental intelligence every nation or race has a time when it rules the world and then that time ends remember that a few hundred years isn't a long time when you see the big picture of history. There are a lot of factors which could have lead to the domination of the white people over the world. what we are seeing today is just the continuation of that domination these days. To prove my point I would mention one thing, according to studies Asians have higher I. Qs than White people than why are they not ruling the world? So intelligence is not the sole factors which lead to the domination of the white race. Remember that there was a time which the Western history calls dark ages, the white people were still living in caves while our people were much more advanced. So your conclusion that white people are inherently more intelligent than black people because white dominate the world is totally absurd.
