Blacks and Whites Differ in Brain Size and Intelligence


by James Buchanan

Scientists have known for a long, long time that Blacks have smaller brains on average. If you can find a 1959 Encyclopedia Britannica, the section on races will mention that Whites have a larger average brain size than Blacks. The liberals and Jews apparently got this important racial information scrubbed out of most books published after 1959. About every ten years since 1960, some brave White academic will publish a book talking about these significant differences. Just off hand I remember the authors, Carleton Coon, Murray and Herrnstein and Arthur Jensen. The “Bell Curve” is perhaps the most famous of these racial reality books.

The latest data from J. Philippe Rushton states that Blacks have brains that are 80cc smaller on average. This data may be based on African-American Blacks, who tend to have about 25% White genes mixed in with IQs around 85. Their primitive all-Black cousins in west Africa have IQs down around 70 (with even smaller brains).

One source notes “The black-white gap is 15 points when measured on the Wechsler tests, 18 on the Stanford-Binet. Both tests are, of course, normed so as to produce an average of 100, but the white average is a bit higher. On the Wechsler metric, whites and blacks average 102 and 87, respectively. On both tests, the gap between the races is almost exactly 1 SD (standard deviation). The gap of 1 SD has been observed since the earliest days of intelligence testing.”

Liberals often respond with a flurry of hysterical gibberish and everything unscientific when confronted with solid scientific information about racial differences. Some liberals will even claim that there is no relationship between intelligence and brain size even though the history of evolution has been a steady march toward larger brain sizes and taller foreheads. The earliest hominids had brain sizes about the same as modern day apes.

According to J. Philippe Rushton, the White average brain size is about 1347cc’s and the Black average brain size is 1267cc’s. In contrast, the largest brain size recorded for an individual ape is 700cc’s. Anther important difference is the shape of the brain. The Neanderthal for example had a slightly larger brain size than modern humans, but almost no forehead. The frontal region of the brain is where creativity resides.

Liberals respond to racial facts with emotional rhetoric. According to them, all the races are equal in mental ability regardless of differing test scores, genes or brain sizes. Never mind the fact that White men were walking on the moon forty years ago, while most natives in Africa were still squatting in mud huts. One famous Jewish propagandist Ashley Montagu could be called the king of egalitarian propaganda. If it weren’t for Jewish and liberal connections, he would have likely been a village idiot gibbering away crazy things on a street corner. He has consistently denied that the races are different in intelligence despite test scores that date back over generations that show a significant 15 percent IQ gap between Blacks and Whites.

East Asians reportedly have a brain size average 17cc’s bigger than the White average, but their societies tend to be less prosperous, mired in bureaucracy and corruption lacking the creativity found in White nations. Perhaps this lack of prosperity is tied to a lack of creativity which may be linked to the shape of the head. Asians typically have rounder heads. Asians seem to do best perfecting Western engineering. The small extra brain capacity of east Asians may give them better memories, but not creativity due to a different head shape.

It’s a bit unfair comparing east Asians (typically just the Japanese and Koreans) to the average of the whole White race. I suspect the Swedes -for example- might have a brain size average bigger than certain east Asian groups. You never hear anyone comparing Scandinavians to Asians, but you often hear of east Asians compared to Whites. Some of the data on Asians may be skewed in their favor –especially if Asian Americans are being used to represent their homelands. It could make a big difference if the east Asians are immigrants to the US, who might be a little smarter than the east Asians who didn’t have the initiative to leave their over-crowded homelands.

China has 1.3 billion people and it’s only started to do well as American companies outsourced manufacturing to them. I suspect if all the ordinary Chinese peasants were included as east Asians, the east Asian average brain size would be less than the White average.

The reluctance of most Americans to admit that the races are not equal results from decades of propaganda from politicians and the liberal media. Curiously, most people will admit that certain breeds of dogs have different personalities. The border collie is a workaholic. The Irish setter is a gentle dog. The German shepherd is a good watch dog, and the Chihuahua is a nervous shaky dog. Now if a simple animal like a dog can have a personality for each breed, then why is it that people won’t admit certain personalities are associated with certain races? Studies of identical twins, who were separated at birth, also suggest that a wide range of personality traits are rooted in our genes.
